I HAVE NEVER BEEN HORNIER
"Peeta is Pepper Potts and Gwen Stacy, helping and helping and helping until the very end, when it’s time for the stakes, and the stakes are: NEEDS RESCUE. Peeta is Annie in Speed, who drives that bus like a champ right up until she winds up handcuffed to a pole covered with explosives."

I love everything I love it all I love everything.
After I laughed out loud at this, Mike immediately said from the other side of the room, exasperated, “Are you laughing at Doctor Who things?” Because I should actually be writing my arguments for Tournament of Nerds tonight at 10pm.
Wore my Doctor Who shirt to watch the special and was pleased the phrase “timey-wimey” made a cameo.
You’ll notice I was also wearing pajama pants, because I have yet to shower or get dressed. DAY OF THE DOCTOR, YO.
On Dec. 6, NBC will televise a live version of the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music, starring country singer Carrie Underwood. Yesterday, the world got its first peek at the production by way of a brand-new teaser trailer complete with rehearsal footage and commentary from the cast, which includes Stephen Moyer, Audra McDonald, and Laura Benanti, who insists that it’s not a remake, per se, of the Academy Award-winning 1965 film.

Maybe that’s just what survival looks like, when you’re not living in some deeply feminine socialist democracy where the government gives you an allowance for red wine and soft cheeses.
That necessary bluster shouldn’t tell you you’re a Grudge Holder, though. And most of all? You really have to be careful. Because when someone or something kicks up that old message of “Sorry, you’re not good enough,” you need to monitor your reaction and resist the urge to move closer and stick your hand straight into the center of the flame."
