The Petite Young Blonde's Movie Review for April 18, 2010: Date Night - 10 shades of blonde out of 5!!!!!!

The PYB has not LAUGHED that hard in a movie since she and La Petite Soeur went to see "Something About Mary" and after margaritas. This time around, no margaritas and none needed! And it was continual laughing - with snorting - yes, as hard as it is to believe the PYB will snort when extremely tickled by something - it just the way it is.

Steve Carrell is hands down the funniest actor on the planet and pairing him with Tina Fey was nothing short of pure genius. Just looking at him makes the PYB crack up because you just never know what is going to come out of his mouth.

The plot is a hilarious case of mistaken identity with guns, car scenes and strip club dancing like you have never seen!

The PYB would be remiss if she did not mention Mark Walberg....who was never in a shirt. Ever. Does anyone else remember the Marky Mark Calvin Klein ads? Let's just say he could still do that. Oh my.

She plans on seeing this at least one more time - it's difficult to catch all of the movie when doubled over trying not to snort or trying not to laugh so loud you are asked to leave the theater.

The Petite Young Blonde’s Guide to the New Year, 2010

 Author's Note: This was first published on January 1,'s time for a check up. So how is 2010 going for you so far?

1. Be nice. It’s really not that hard.

2. Follow your passion. Of course, you need to know what it is first. Take some time to figure it out; it will be worth it unless your decided passion is something like shoplifting, high speed chases or picking your nose. Those are all just wrong. The PYB is currently in between passions and will be working on this one herself.

3. Hug your people; that can never be done enough and no one really ever gets tired of it.

4. You know all those thoughts that cross your mind during the day? Verbalize the good ones. If you’re in the store and the woman in front of you has a cute hair cut tell her! Her day may have completely gone down hill - one comment could change that. You never know.

5. Go watch an Atlanta Beat women’s soccer game this summer! They’ll be playing in Kennesaw in a beautiful new stadium and there’s just not anything like live soccer. Don’t worry if you don’t know the rules, the PYB will be glad to explain (so it only took her about 6 yrs to figure out the off-sides call). These women play hard and fast - you won’t be disappointed.

6. Treat yourself every now and then. The PYB believes most of us have learned this lesson as we’ve become (clears throat) older. She treats herself with books, plants, candles, music and Netflix. She almost said cats, but that’s almost too “cat-lady like” and kinda creepy. She has a two cat limit any way.

7. Sleep! Plenty of it, too. Everything is manageable when you’ve had enough sleep. So that means no caffeine in the evening…the PYB has the new one cup Keurig coffee maker and, not only it just fun, it makes a damn fine cup of coffee; she hasn’t slept for days!

8. Surprise someone – send flowers out of the blue or better yet pick some wildflowers (not from a park, please) or cut some from your yard and take them to someone. You’ll get just as much satisfaction sending them as receiving. And keep in mind, the PYB’s favorites are daisies and sunflowers.

9. Recycle and use your own bags when shopping. IKEA sells really cheap and colorful shopping bags – the PYB loves them! You just have to remember to keep them in your car AND take them into the store. The PYB takes her recycling to work at KSU and is able to bring in cardboard, cans, paper and plastic. You will be amazed how much more room you’ll have in your trashcan. Composting is also a great way to help the environment; just make sure your compost pile is far away from your backyard deck! You can then use the compost to grow the flowers you’re going to bring to a friend.

10. Ladies, get yourself a red patent leather purse! No reason, just do it.

11. You and only you are responsible for your happiness – others can contribute and enhance it, but it’s ultimately up to you.

These are simple guidelines and there are plenty more. Feel free to add to the list. The petite young blonde needs reminders throughout the year – writing them down will hopefully help them stick in her head. She thanks you for indulging her.

Here’s to 2010!

What the Petite Young Blonde has learned/observed today, April 6, 2010

What the Petite Young Blonde has learned/observed today, April 6, 2010:

  1. The Mariott Marquis Atlanta is beautiful and amazing, but sleeping on a pull out couch there is not different from one at the Hotel 6.
  2. The PYB does not need to be on the 40th floor of anything – unless it’s the Eiffel Tower.
  3. Worst job ever: replacing the windows blown out by the Atlanta tornado of the Westin downtown, outside, hanging off the building on special scaffolding. Viewed from the 40th floor of the Marriott Marquis and looking UP.
  4. Wisteria and Redbud tree blooms are simply exquisite.
  5. The PYB aspires to be as witty as Betty White in her old age.
  6. Linen dresses are meant to be cool, however, when lined with polyester the complete opposite happens – especially when combined with pantyhose and a slip.
  7. When switching purses it is essential to put the house key into the NEW purse.  Otherwise she winds up coming home and having to sit outside in the plastic-lined linen dress until the neighbor comes home and gives her the spare key.  By this time the pantyhose and slip are gone, the cats are banging on the window to get out and the PYB is covered in yellow pollen that has stuck to her sweat.
  8. Allergy eye drops can feel almost … well, you know.

Why Do Bras Cost So Much....a song

I went to Kohl's to buy some bras

Here a tug there a tug everywhere a tug tug
I went to Kohl’s to buy some bras
Ei ei o

I went to Kohl's to buy some bras
Ei ei o
Wanted color under my clothes
Ei ei o
With a red one there and a blue one there
Here a red there a blue everywhere a red and blue
I went to Kohl's to buy some bras
Ei ei o

I went to Kohl's to buy some bras

Here a B there a B everywhere a BBB
I went to Kohl's to buy some bras

Why do bras cost so much
Ei ei o

Here a 100 there a 100 for a total of 200
Why do bras cost so much?
EI ….. EI ……. O!!!
