Let's Talk About Rex Baby
Jeanne Meowclane

Last night, I had a very random evening of watching My Fair Lady,  you know the film with Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison? Based off a George Bernard Shaw play called Pygmalion,  general gist is low class flower pedaler become pet grooming project of a Professor Henry Higgins. He falls in love with her, she ends up falling in love with him as well.   BUT, in the play she ends up with another dude who is WAY cooler named

Black Thumb
Jeanne Meowclane

I spent the better part of today attempting to fix an issue with my family’s lawn. You see the neighbor has some sort of leak happening that is ruining the median of grass/lawn with water damage and erosion.   Since I have a good amount of time on my hands currently, I am starting to believe that I am a really handy person. Like, fixing leaks and gardening.   I am not.   After about 30 minutes of supposed hard work, the only thing that went well was avoiding the wasp nest that

A Brief Chat about Guardians...
Jeanne Meowclane

Ok, I hope everyone took the time to go see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 this past week.   It's good. Not at the same OMG SO GOOD level as the first one, but still a damn good film.    I do have one gripe. Groot. He is so freaking cute, and I felt like he was kind of taking away the action of the film with his cuteness. Like, I reallllllly wanted him to be in EVERY scene, and was sad when he wasn't.   But, all in all. GOOD film. Go see it, I'll definitely be catching it again.   TEAMS!? Some Nasty Habits took home 1st with Eat Trash. Punch a Nazi.

Come on Feel the Noise
Jeanne Meowclane

Sometimes you just want to jam out so hard in your car. So much so that you forget there are other cars around, with people in them. Maybe they stare at you as you flop around, belted into your seat while belting out the lyrics to a song. Maybe they chuckle and totally get it. Maybe you're being paranoid and no one is really looking at you.   But, one way to REALLY get them to stare, is when you roll the windows down and Mamma Mia by ABBA is the song you're listening to. And it's so loud that it drowns out the heavy bass that's emitting from the lowrider four cars away.   This was based on a true story.   TEAMS?!

Hulking Out
Jeanne Meowclane

It seems that more and more these days, I get uncontrollably ragey over little things.   Car in front of me takes an extra three seconds to move at the green light. RAGE!   Someone doesn’t wrap cables back properly. SMASH!   Store is closed by the time I get there even though I knew it would close at that time. HULK!   I leave my phone at home. OMG NELLIE WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!? RAGE against yourself!   Maybe it’s the political environment that’s going on. Maybe it’s the general “over this” kind of feeling. Maybe it’s just me. It’s probably

It's Carbs!
Jeanne Meowclane

Bread.Chips.Carbs.   Oprah is very adamant that if you join her diet cult, you can still eat it. She's actually so adamant about the carbs that she gets a bit crazy in the eyes.   I'm ALL for that.    But, I'm also just all for eating chips.    I will admit I've done my fair share of dieting and am still quite self-conscious about my body image and pretty much all that fun stuff that people talk about online about body confidence. I am definitely not body confident. I'm more like body meh. It keeps my insides inside.   But aside from that.

Trash Vortex of the World
Jeanne Meowclane

Have you ever wondered where all the filth and refuse that humanity would dump into the waters goes? Does it wash upon the shores of the other continents? Does it spend it's entire non-biodegradable life floating aimlessly through the the waterways for all eternity, only to be consumed by some marine life?   The concept of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is so intriguing and one that I'd looked into many times growing up.    I remember the first time that I ever really came to know of it was through a Stephen King short story. I was, and still am, obsessed with fiction literature of the horror and supernatural bent. I cut my teeth

it's Either Squirrels or a Hobo
Jeanne Meowclane

In fun personal facts, I recently moved back to my mom's house in a neighboring town. Commuting is not great but not the worst, and really, it's a test in me trying not to overspend because I don't have to pay rent.   One thing about this house. My mother has lived in this house for over 25 years with I'd say over a decade by herself. It's a two-story, multi bedroom house with a master bedroom (her bedroom) on the ground floor.   What does this mean? Well mainly that she rarely goes upstairs for anything because the only rooms up there are my old room, my sister's old room, and a creepy room that leads to a creepy attic. Who can blamer

He's Such a Hotsimodo
Jeanne Meowclane

I use this term pretty regularly to describe people. Or for when someone is describing a person they like to me.   Hotsimodo is a person who you think is hot, but maybe your best friend is like "I'm sorry, what? No, they're not attractive at all."   Example: Jeremy Renner. He is a hotsimodo. I think he's so sexy. My sister thinks he has a pug face.    You're probably reading this thinking, that's a stupid word. Well my coworker Monica at my previous job and life in Manhattan coined the term to describe people she was dating, and really it's pretty useful. I hope to further the use of the word until

Whatcha gonna do with all that trunk? All that Nellie inside my trunk?
JWarr

You may not know or care, but Eastwoods used to be my land.  Once upon a time there was a QM named, we'll call him Jim, who was assigned this bar and then got cast in the Broadway production of Breakin' 3: This Time It's Real and had to go away for four months. The bar was mine.  The land was prolific. The quizzers plentiful.  It was a magical land. Then Nellie came.  Now it's her problem.  I do miss y'all, but Nellie is clearly keeping you in good hands. Let's revisit some golden moments: - Y'all are strangely into Disney.  You're even more into Chewbaca singing Disney.  So that's a weird fetish. - White people clearly

Honestly Who Throws A Shoe!
Jeanne Meowclane

About 5 or so years ago, when I was living in Manhattan, a good friend and his brother came to visit and crash at my apartment before going off to Connecticut the next day. We met up with many of his friends who were residing or conveniently in the area as well.   At some point we ended up at one of those random Irish pubs that has that Irish script for its name at almost all “Irish” bars have.   We drank there for I’d say a couple of hours before things got hairy. We had all migrated from a table over to the bar since it was a weeknight and people tended to filter out and go home around 11pm. At midnight, the majority of these friends

You're Going the Wrong Way!
Jeanne Meowclane

Nothing makes you feel slightly better about your bad driving habits than seeing someone driving the wrong way on a one way street. I mean it's horrible, but man, does it make you feel kind of good when you and some of your cohorts are yelling at someone to turn around and all they do is look at you like you're crazy. Come man, you're going the wrong way. It's like that scene from Planes, Trains, and Automobiles where they think people are just being crazy yelling at them because they're going the way. "You're going the wrong way!!"   Then John Candy and Steve Martin turn momentarily into skeletons. It's awesome.   Teams?! The

Coldplay? More Like Lameplay.
Jeanne Meowclane

I remember in high school people exclaiming over this band that was “da shit.” I’d sit in my friends’ cars and listen to that Top 40 hit “Yellow” over and over again. Is that Coldplay? I think it was. Many times I contemplated swift escape out of a moving car just to get away.   Anyways, those bands man. Still don’t care for them. I think I actually gave a white guy I liked that album as a gift for Christmas once because I thought it would appeal to him. I don’t think it worked because I’m still single. Should have gone with a Dave Matthews Band album instead.   TEAMS!? Who Knew Quiz was

When In Doubt, Chug Off
Jeanne Meowclane

When in doubt and all else fails, a beer chugging contest is the answer to everything.   Can’t figure out who gets shotgun? Shotgun a beer. Fighting over who actually won Settlers of Catan? Beer chug. Need to figure out who picks up the check this time? Chug off. Got a dispute over property rights? Clear it up with a chug off. Got a nasty divorce proceeding? Maybe don’t have a chug off. Stay sober, and go to your appointment.   TEAMS?! The Breeding Brain Boners took home all the marbles after beating out We Drink and We Know Things in TWO TIEBREAKERS! Too Many Rabbits

Oh Car Oh Me O
Jeanne Meowclane

So long story short, I totaled my car a couple of weeks ago. It was very debilitating to the psyche, but I survived and minus the lingering bruises and stiff muscles, I'm alive, which is all that's truly important.   A new car? That's another story.   I didn't think that I was attached as I was to my other car which I had only bought two years prior after moving to Texas, but I was. I was very attached. As it was apparent after all I could think was, I really hope I can get my car fixed while crocodile tears poured silently down my cheeks.   Alas, it was not meant to be.    So,

A Ghost Story
Jeanne Meowclane

I used to have a job as a personal assistant to a celebrity and spent some of that time in Europe when they were doing stuff in Europe.   At one point, I was out in Provence at this beautiful villa getting things ready for them as they were to stay there for the summer.   Now, I was super excited. I spoke zero French but was happy to explore and experience this part of France I had never been to. After the first few nights, I was ready to leave.   Side note, I’m a person who wavers on the belief that there are ghosts out there and that ghosts don’t exist. But after the time I spent in that villa, I believe in the supernatural.   Now
