I write about parenting, home, food, clutter, thermostat wars, princesses -- so, basically, my life with a husband, 9 year old son, and 7 year old daughter. Previously I wrote about health and family at readersdigest.com, and before that, I was a newspaper reporter, and before that ... I can't remember anymore.
Everyone pretty much agrees that SNL was a big bomb last night, but if you had to pick a skit that was mildly amusing it would be the "50 Shades of Grey Audition Tape." If only because SNL cast member Noel Wells absolutely NAILED Kristen Stewart as she auditioned for the part of Ana opposite Philip Seymour Hoffman.
The skit poked fun at the erotic parody by pairing the worst possible Christian and Ana pairs they could find for the role and making them read parts of the script. Miley played Scarlett Johansson along with Taran Killam as 57-year-old German actor Christoph Waltz because does anyone even know who that guy is?
In case you were one of the many who turned the TV off after the opening skit, here's what you missed!
This video has me totally creeped out and not wanting to go hiking again anytime soon, even though word has it it was just the work of a jokester on the Pacific Coast. It was filmed on Montara Mountain in Pacifca, California. The video involves a masked individual following a young woman hiking alone on the mountain and ... wait for it ... one startling and eerie part that is going to make you pee your pants. Did you see that one coming? Because I didn't.
Twerking needs to go away, as soon as possible. It's gross and we're over it. Miley Cyrus should stop doing it. Miley Cyrus dressed as Michelle Bachmann should stop doing it. And young women twerking in front of a school bus full of kids should stop doing it.
A woman who worked at an Oklahoma wild animal zoo did what you are not supposed to yesterday: She stuck her arm into the cage of a male tiger. To make matters worse, she was wearing a down feather coat which allowed to beast to hold on even tighter as it ripped and bit at her arm.
According to the zoo: "She was wearing a large goose down jacket that got bunched up inside the cage wire, not allowing her to get her hand back outside the cage wire fast enough. The tiger grabbed her hand, pulling her left arm through a 4 inch square hole."
That "4 inch" part especially is a tough visual, because I can't imagine most arms fitting into a hole that size ... but there is good news today!
Miley Cyrus hosted Saturday Night Live last night, and there was plenty of tongues wagging, butts twerking and making fun of Republicans -- among other things!
And not only that, but we were also treated to yet another appearance by Miley's pink teddy bear VMA jumpsuit! The show's opener featured two homeless people living in a post-apocalyptic New York City in 2045, reminiscing about what life was like before the government shutdown and Miley's shocking VMA twerkfest that brought down the country.
But the one skit that everyone will be talking about today is the "We Don't Stop" parody. This one is called "We Did Stop" and it was a music video feature Miley as Michelle Bachmann and SNL's Taran Killem as John Boehner, but instead of debating politics on the House floor, they take over the capitol with a raucous house party.
