James Franco disgusts me. His ego is enormous.

I loved “The Velveteen Rabbit” as a child and now as a grown adult, I can’t read it without crying. I had my own rabbit, named Velvie, who was with me during chicken pox, a staph infection, two surgeries, lost him (by mistake) in a hotel out of state and had him mailed back and he even went on my Honeymoon (inside joke).
You checked off 29 out of 93 on this list! Paramount Pictures / Via ourbeautyphilosophy.com
You somehow managed to make very few fashion errors in your life, which means you either lied or wore a classic LBD for the past 20 years. Either way, life is no fun without mistakes, so why don’t you go out there, buy some crop tops, and live a little? Um…I still wear a lot of the stuff that I checked off. Plus I’m not a slave to trends either…although I do really want comfy flannel to come back.
This list is really silly. Sodastream just came out. I paid for my own Game Boy color. We were given iPods at my career job and that was the only raise we got for two years. I barely had any of these and I can assure you that I was definitely a spoiled child.
Or…you don’t need any of these reasons to justify why you don’t want kids. And you know what? That’s perfectly fine. Parenting is incredibly hard, so much harder than you can comprehend. It took several months for me to realize the benefits of being a parent and while I adore my son, I have a new appreciation for people who intentionally choose to remain childless.
The only way this movie would be better is if Heath had kept his blonde hair. *le swoon*
It’s truly outrageous that you didn’t include Jem in this list. Truly, truly, truly outrageous. Oh, Jem….
Thank you so much. I thought the exact same thing!
It was especially common on the Oregon Trail. Mothers couldn’t fuss with buttons and snaps(if snaps were used at that time) because it would take too long, so little boys wore dresses so they could relieve themselves easier.
Kitchen Kabaret was WAAAAY better than Food Rocks. And there’s Journey into Imagination with Figment. Honestly started to tear up at the thought of no more Spectromagic :-(
A childhood friend asked me to be her bridesmaid. You know what she did? She called me on the phone and asked me. I said yes. End of story.
I wouldn’t set foot in a David’s Bridal unless I ABSOLUTELY had to. They are so rude and pushy. I went looking for a dress and the woman insisted I was much too thick to be the size that I actually was. I wanted a dress with sheer sleeves…the best they could do was gowns with spaghetti straps. I couldn’t leave that store fast enough.
Even amongst the dumbest people I’ve ever met, I’ve never ever heard anyone say this. However, a few days after giving birth, my husband literally said to me, “Now you need to get your abs back,” and he was serious.
There are four serial killers/killings connected with my hometown: The Alphabet Killer, the Hillside Strangler (my aunt used to work with him before the murder spree), Arthur Shawcross and a very credible Jack the Ripper suspect.
Somebody needs to take the gif of Emma Watson from “Bling Ring” and mash with this and…oh God, I feel like a pervert.
Thought I’d end up in Star Wars instead of Harry Potter based on the questions I answered. Phew! I’m more of a Potterhead, though I was obsessed with Star Wars before Potter.
I had Ask Zandar and completely forgot about it! It had nothing, NOTHING, on Mall Madness, though. I wish I’d never gotten rid of that game!
As far as I know, popcorn isn’t a big thing in Europe (or at least it wasn’t in England when my parents lived there). My dad still will only eat it at the movies and one of my favorite memories is of my grandad putting his hand out and smiling when he asked for some from a small bag. Maybe it’s a novelty, like Vegemite would be here? Peanut butter also isn’t commonly found.
A few years ago we were in Ireland and at a little cafe we saw an advertisement for the town’s “American Festival.” It had rock and roll, Motown and blue grass music and featured old model American cars all served with American BBQ food. We had never seen that before and my mom and almost cried with how sweet and fun it seemed.
I know I did and I ended up being Henry VIII. I wanted Boudicea :-(
My last name is Foster so when I was pregnant, the baby was nicknamed Bananas. Everyone loved it.
I’m American, living on the southern shore of Lake Ontario and my father is from England. This…this could be written about me. Walkers crisps are THE best (cheese & onion? roast chicken??) and those “Canadian” candy bars are sold in England too…which make American chocolate taste like cocoa-flavored sawdust.
I’m horrified by the “trash the dress” concept. If you want to do something with it, donate it! I know of some people who are bringing back the tradition of cutting up the dress to re-use fabric for new christening gowns.
It’s my ultimate guilty pleasure, but Heath Ledger in “Roar…” 18 years old wearing leather pants. You’re welcome. It also had Vera Farmiga and Kerry Russel.
My sister told my niece that she couldn’t have dessert because she hadn’t finished her meat. I said loudly, “How can you have any pudding if you don’t eat your meat?!” My family stared at me like I had three heads. The worst part? They’re English. *sigh*
I genuinely feel sympathy for Maryland, the Carolinas and Georgia, but NY and PA? They can handle this.
One day Pharell is going to see himself in this photo and realize what an idiot he looks like compared to some of the elite of Hollywood. That being said, I hope Thomas Newman whether it’s this year or another time, finally receives an Oscar!
It doesn’t have to be a diamond, they’re just the traditional choice. If I didn’t have a diamond engagement ring, I’d want a ruby since my husband and I were both born in July, and that’s when we got married. Honestly, you could put a piece of string on his/her finger and it would mean the same thing.
“Damn good television” is purely subjective to the viewer. I heard a receptionist say “Keeping up with the Kardashians” was brilliant television and she didn’t understand why people had to criticize it. I don’t begrudge anyone for enjoying Coven, but it just didn’t seem to meet the caliber of the past two seasons.
EXACTLY!! The promos for this season were PHENOMENAL and the season just fell utterly flat. The people who love this season like to point out all the plots for last season, but last season the characters were more interesting and it was more thrilling. This season seemed like it catered to an MTV-worshipping crowd.
I read HP for the first time at 18 when the first movie came out. My husband swore he wouldn’t watch the movies, until one day there was a marathon and he actually got to see the cast. He tolerates it, which is really all I ask of him, but we’ll be watching a movie with British actors and he’ll genuinely ask, “Now who did they play in Harry Potter?” It’s kind of addicting.
I’d trust the Queen to drive…she was a mechanic during the war. I think this was meant to be obscure bits of trivia considering I didn’t know most of these, and I’m pretty good with English history.
Haha, Kelsey, come visit western/central NY, where you get lake effect snow off of Lakes Erie and Ontario in addition to utterly frigid temps. I’ve been to FL at least three times in July and while it’s hot and humid, it’s nothing compared to New Orleans.
I live in Rochester NY, one of the snowiest and coldest places in the country, and that includes Alaska. Looking at these pictures, they really did worry me. Ice is nothing to be taken lightly and can create major damage, not including car accidents. If you’re still actually reading this, hear are some tips from someone who feels comfortable driving even during a whiteout: 1. Try to maintain as full a tank as possible. The heavier tank will weigh you down and help prevent sliding. 2. If you hit a patch of ice and you don’t have anti-lock, pump your brakes. That means lightly pressing the brake peddle down and releasing, pump, release etc until you get control. 3. Carry kitty litter or sawdust shavings. If you get stuck, it will help provide traction.
I believe plain cola syrup is still available in pharmacies, or it was as of 2002 when I worked in one. Pepsi will also help a stomach ache because it has pepsin in it. Lastly, ginger ale (especially real ginger ale) works because ginger helps naturally aid digestion. It’s an excellent natural remedy for women suffering the effects of morning sickness without having to resort to manufactured medicine.
My mom wore platform heels on a bus in Spain while she was 5 months pregnant with my sister. She fell and sprained her ankle. My sister was fine but now, 38 years later, I still ask my mother what the hell she was thinking.
That is an incredibly attractive family. Looking forward to the day when stuff like this is just considered normal.
When going to Canada, my father would always tell the cashier that they had Monopoly money and my mother would call him an idiot. My father is from England and my mom is from the States. Also, the president of my father’s company thought he was being cute by using the term “jolly good” in a professional corporate email in reference to my father. He was not happy.
No…just…no. Try eating Cadbury chocolate and then go to Hershey or Nestle. Hershey tastes powdery and flavorless in comparison to the rich smoothness of Cadbury. I’m very fortunate to live just an hour from Canada and also that local grocery stores carry Flake, Crunchie and Aero in the international section. Honestly, steven, if you have the chance, try one and I think you’ll understand what we’re talking about.
