1. Andrea Lewis “Those Girls Are Wild” site:
I started off looking for Andrea Lewis after complaining about Season 4 of “Degrassi: The Next Generation
” having a ridiculously low amount of couple moments between her and Jimmy. Then I realized she has a CD out and some great photographs on her site. I’m blasting “Raindrops
” super hard (featuring Andre 3000), but I’m digging her version of “Back to Life
” more than Sole II Sole, who I really liked back in the day. She’s got some pipes on her. Check out her CD here
. You can check out her website (with her "wild girl" friend and author Shannon Boodram) at ThoseGirlsAreWild.com
, and no, it’s not a porn site. That website name made me hesitate to click on it, too. On top of that, these girls are funny as hell. I love people who have a sense of humor. Serious is good, but inexplicably goofy is even better. Check out this video below. There's plenty more crazy where that came from.
2. Drake on the Grammy’s:
I know I’m late on this, but I don’t watch the Grammy’s. However, I happened to find the performance with Drake and Rihanna and that winding step they did was too cute. I have it featured in Shamontiel’s Favorites
for the time being, and you can also find it on WorldStarHipHop
. The dance is common, it just caught me off-guard because I wouldn’t have expected him to do that.
3. Drake on Juno:
Drake as a guest host on the Juno Awards (apparently this is the Canadian Grammy’s). This video had me dying laughing. I’ve watched it so many times I can’t even count. “Canary yellow with the loafers on!” Watch this video (above): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkQV7C7cUN4 4. Jimmy John’s:
Subway’s $5 foot longs are cool and all, but I’d much rather have a vegetarian 8” sub from Jimmy John’s
, which includes “layers of provolone cheese separated by real avocado spread, alfalfa sprouts, sliced cucumber, lettuce, tomato and mayo.” This sandwich is the best. I grab some salt and vinegar chips from their snack rack, and I’m happy for the rest of the day. 5. Oreo peanut butter fudge crème cookies:
I’m in the Amazon Vine program, which gives me free stuff as long as I rate it. I got these cookies by accident. I was supposed to rate the fudge crème cookies, but they sent me the peanut butter ones by mistake. My gawd, Girl Scouts everywhere should be nervous because these cookies definitely give Tagalongs a run for their money, plus they’re softer. I ate the entire package in a couple of days. I jogged all week trying to burn off those “happy” calories.
