    My Best Friend's Wedding

    I googled “how to get Julia Roberts Best Friend’s Wedding hair” and the internet was not helpful. So if anyone knows, hit me up. Willing to pay handsomely and/or engage in some minor sorcery.

    Eight Gifts of Hanukkah

    I have to admit that I did not watch all of this (and maybe someday I will!) but I wanted to give it some love for the parts I did see.

    It's weird to me that Cary Elwes and Brooke Shields didn't have more chemistry because I met Cary Elwes once and we had amazing chemistry.
