Awwwwwwww (A review for the movie "Flipped")

I've been meaning to write about this movie I watched with a few friends two weeks ago. When my friend said it was a "love story between two preteens" I wasn't incredibly excited. But when she brought out the caramel popcorn something inside me pushed me to stay until she got her computer working.

The movie was titled Flipped, set in the 50's and featuring two eighth graders who are polar opposites of each other. I'm not good with summaries so I'll just go ahead and say that it showcases their relationship throughout the years and how things can be... *flipped* (I'm so clever)! Both perspectives are shown and they switch back and forth throughout. Here's the trailer:

Sort of got me wishing I lived in the 50's again (and, dear feminists, I mean this in the best way possible). No internet/video game addicts, kids actually playing in the yards... hell I even saw a girl climb a tree in this movie. And seeing two 12-13 year olds interact without grinding each other at an epilepsy-enducing party was quite nice as well.

A great watch regardless of whether or not romantic comedies are your thing. You know that warm fuzzy feeling you get in your heart when you eat a marshmallow? Yeah, you'll be feeling that after the movie's done.

Exactly what you need on a rainy November afternoon

You get home from school/work. You're beyond tired and could do with a drink. But which one best matches what you want at that moment? I decided that overly complicating it by consulting a website based on your musical preferences is the best way to decide. Here's a link that a friend of mine sent me. Type in a music artist whose song you're listening to at the moment and personalizes a drink for you. How exciting! For those who are not yet of the right age to consume alcohol, remember that you can never go wrong with a non-alcoholic Pina Colada.

aww yes
Speaking of November, this will be the first time I get to experience what Americans like to call Thanksgiving! In honor of such a widely celebrated holiday, here is a somewhat relevant song that almost (almost) beats Rebbecca Black's Friday. Or whatever new song One Direction has come out with these days.


P.S. I hope you can sense the heavy sarcasm I've displayed.
