Everyone enjoys putting on their best green clothes on March 17th and being Irish for a day. We’ve all heard there was a saint and something to do with snakes in Ireland and now we have parades and drink green beer. But what do we really know about St. Patrick’s Day?
For the most part, iconic movie characters become indistinguishable from the actors who played them on the big screen. But what if the actors who were originally approached to play the roles had said “yes” instead of “no?” With Jennifer Hudson’s revelation in her new book that she turned down the title role in ‘Precious’ that put Gabourey Sidibe on the map, it’s a good time to take a look at some other actors who changed the faces of movie icons.
For some mysterious reason, February 23rd is known as International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day. It seems likely that dogs managed to get a hold of a calendar somewhere and decided to mark this day, so to speak, in order to get more treats. Clever pups.
Next Tuesday is a big day…literally. This year, February 21st is Mardi Gras, or translated, Fat Tuesday. The day we all party down and do all kinds of sinful things before giving it all up for Lent. Yes, even the dogs.
The American Film Institute created a list of the 100 most romantic movies ever made. Because their list spans a good 7 or 8 decades, and doesn’t go past the ’90s, it doesn’t include a lot of our favorites. The movies that shaped our ideas of romance.
Valentine’s Day is around the corner and you want to propose, but you just don’t know how. And, to make matters worse, times are tough, so you’re on a pretty tight budget. Don’t worry. Pizza Hut has your back with their ‘Tie the Knot with the $10 Dinner Box’ promotion.
It looms ever closer once again. That day when people who like watching other people chase each other and a little ball around a field for several hours get together to sit in groups and yell at random intervals. You’re social, so you go, but you aren’t that into sports. We understand.
It is so 2011 to be the person at the Super Bowl party who knows all the little statistical factoids about the teams and the game. So how about this year you’re not that guy? How about, this year, you’re the genius who knows all the useless trivia about everything but football on Super Bowl Sunday?
The monarchs of cute over at Animal Planet started something genius a few years ago, and this year, they will continue their adorable tradition by bringing us Puppy Bowl VIII on February 5th. There’s another big game that day, but the true battle for the title of champ will be fought by man’s best friend. And probably more than one player named Champ.
Many useful machines have been invented, and, one would think that a time machine would be the best machine a person could invent. How very wrong. Clearly, the best machine ever invented is this all-in-one breakfast machine. Say good-bye to Jimmy Dean and drive-thrus and hello to breakfast bliss.
Always one to get into the spirit of things, John Kerry showed up at a White House ceremony honoring the Boston Bruins with a pair of shiners. The good news is that he didn’t earn them while duking it out in Congress.
