Jimmy Fallon is the Best

He Coordinates the Best Reunions
I’m sure by now most of you have heard the amazing news that on Friday, Jimmy Fallon is resurrecting one of the best bands from our youth – Jesse and the Rippers from Full House. In addition to that amazing feat, a few years ago he reunited another classic band from the mid 90s – California Dreams. And it doesn’t stop there. In one of his most overwhelming undertakings, Jimmy Fallon attempted to reunite one of the best casts ever – Saved By The Bell. While he didn’t quite succeed, he did entertain millennials with getting the one and only Zack Morris as a guest star, reminding us of the best moments and characters of the series:

His Adorable Bromance with Justin Timberlake
Not only do Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake have the best comedic timing and chemistry when performing together*, but they are legit friends. That warms my heart. Remember when JT married Jessica Biel and broke millions of hearts? Well Jimmy was there (which first of all is adorable) and Justin claims Fallon heckled him during his wedding speech. Awwwww!
*Want proof of the amazing J+J duo? Real People, Fake Arms; Summer Camp; History of Rap; and many many more I won’t list here right now. Google it if you are interested.

Dude Can Sing
Some of Jimmy’s best skits are of him performing musically. To be honest, the ones that I find the most entertaining are when he doesn’t use words at all. Case and point: The Chickeneers and his lip sync battle with John Krasinski. But hands down, his all time best musical performance goes to:

He Breaks Character During Improv
I know, a lot of people can’t stand him and criticize him harshly for this very reason, but I find it endearing and hilarious. He finds himself and those around him amusing, so you can’t blame him for wanting to laugh during a skit once and a while. This characteristic has become his trademark so much so that his name is in the Wikipedia entry for “Breaking Character.” Maybe it’s just because I’m one of those people who laughs at my own jokes, but I love Jimmy Fallon for this.

Why I Want to be Mindy Kaling’s Best Friend

I loved her on The Office. Her book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns), is hilarious. The Mindy Project is one of the best shows on TV right now. And I want to be her best friend for the following reasons:

1. She met Clay Matthews. He was a guest on Mindy Project a couple weeks ago. I would love to meet Clay Matthews. Yum.

2. She’s smart. Not only are her tweets super insightful (see below), but she wrote on The Office, wrote a book and now writes her own show – The Mindy Project. She’s just super talented and really humble about it, which is awesome.

3.She’s sassy. She said this about her own book: “This book will take you two days to read. Did you even see the cover? It’s mostly pink. If you’re reading this book every night for months, something is not right.”

4. She drinks too much at inappropriate times. This one Tweet told me we would be best friends for life.

5. She has good taste in men.

6. She has really cool friends.

7.  She gives great advice: “Always Wear Flats and Have Your Friends Sleep Over: A Step-by-Step How-To Guide for Avoiding Getting Murdered”

8. She has great taste in music. That wrap party is something I needed to be invited to – Gold Digger is the best Kayne West song.

9. She likes breakfast sandwiches. Which means she has great taste in food because breakfast sandwiches are delicious.

10. She’s relate-able. Who doesn’t have a photo like this somewhere hiding in their parents’ house? However, most of us will never have it published on the back of a book.

11. She’s just so funny. Watch this interview. She’s hilarious.

How to Feel Happy Right Now

Snow got you down? Here are some things that should make you smile…

3. It’s a proven fact that it’s impossible not to smile while looking at Donald Driver’s smile.

4. An Argentinian man who thought he bought a pair of poodles at an outdoor market in Buenos Aires brought them home to the vet only to be told they were actually ferrets on steroids. The veterinarian informed him the ferrets “had been given steroids at birth to increase their size and then had some extra grooming to make their coats resemble a fluffy toy poodle,” the paper says, translating a report from a local Argentinian TV station. He paid $150 per poodle. That could be you, but it’s not.

5. Read the comments in this recipe for ice.

6. Not only the thought of Blake Shelton singing at Kelly Clarkson’s wedding, but now that he’s actually officiating the entire thing.

7. At least you’re not this girl…

8. Look at the website Parents Shouldn’t Text.

9. There is a social network just for cats called Catmoji. “Catmoji is the best place for cat lovers to meow, share and discover cat pictures and videos.”

10. The Chickeneers’ All-Clucking Version Of “Ho Hey”

If those aren’t enough reasons to smile and be happy, here is a list of health benefits of smiling.

So hopefully you have some reason to be happy now! Have a fabulous day, friends 🙂

Unexpected Crushes

I have several weird and unexpected crushes that my friends will never understand. I can’t even completely explain why I love these men so much, but I am oddly attracted to them for some reason. I think it’s that they are lovable, endearing, harmless guys that I can relate to. See for yourself:

Why Wedding Showers are the Worst

Champagne Glasses and Wedding Cake

I will never understand the concept of a wedding shower. You have an engagement party, you have a bachelorette party, you have the actual wedding – why must you throw another event in there? It’s just one more thing we have to buy a present for (or in my case, fork out cash because I’m classy and too lazy to look at the registry).

Basically it is a few hours out of your day that are spent awkwardly – and for the most part sober – with “grown-up” ladies we may or may not know. No one wants that. And you know what else no one wants? The “who’s next?” conversation that will inevitably come up. Yes, I know I’m single. Yes, I know my younger cousins/friends/sisters are closer to marriage than me. Yes I know it’s about time I settle down. Please, continue to remind me of all these things. And the worst part? I’m fine being single and 25. But try explaining that to the bride’s grandma…

And the games. Oh the games. Must we really force a group of acquaintances together to play awkward games, like making wedding dresses out of toilet paper, or answering questions like “what was the couple’s third date?” Let’s just skip that part and move straight to cake.

Which brings me to the only redeeming quality bridal showers have – the free delicious snacks and desserts. Unless it’s a potluck, then you’re screwed.

Happy wedding season!

25

By: Me. A 25-year-old.

It feels like a perfect night to dress up in sweatpants
Drink too much wine and send stupid texts, ah ah, ah ah.
It feels like a perfect night for a Taco Bell at midnight
Go to the bar and annoy strangers, ah ah, ah ah.

Yeah,
We’re drunk, broke, tired and wired at the same time
It’s hilarious and a little pathetic, oh, yeah
Tonight’s the night when we forget, well, everything…
It’s time.

Uh oh!
I don’t know about you
But I’m feeling 25
Everything will be alright
But I don’t know if I’ll survive
You don’t know about me
But I’ll tell you even if you don’t want to
Everything will be alright
If we just keep dancing like we’re
25
25

It seems like one of those nights,
This place is too crowded.
Too many young kids, ah ah, ah ah
It seems like one of those nights,
We ditch the whole scene and end up drinking
Too much before midnight.

Yeah,
We’re drunk, broke, tired and wired at the same time
It’s hilarious and a little pathetic, oh, yeah
Tonight’s the night when we forget about our age
It’s time

Uh oh!
I don’t know about you
But I’m feeling 25
Everything will be alright
But I don’t know if I’ll survive
You don’t know about me
But I’ll bet you want to
Everything will be alright (alright)
If we just keep dancing like we’re
25
25
I don’t know about you
25
25

It feels like one of those nights,
We ditch the whole scene.
It feels like one of those nights,
We will be sleeping.
It feels like one of those nights,
You look like bad news,
Tequila, I gotta have you,
Jager or Vodka, too.

Oh oh yeah hey!
I don’t know about you
But I’m feeling 25
Everything will be alright
But I don’t know if I’ll survive
You don’t know about me
But I’ll tell you even if you don’t want to
Everything will be alright
If we just keep dancing like we’re
25
25
25, yeah, yeah
25, yeah, yeah, yeah
