Amy Schumer: The Universe & You NSFW

All About Amy and The Universe

Here’s the deal; Amy Schumer is telling the truth all over the place about everything. She’s specifically telling the truth about women’s issues and experiences. It’s all happening on her Comedy Central show “Inside Amy Schumer”. So I declare from here on out I’ll find Amy Schumer truth bombs that I find significant & hilarious and share it on a consistent basis.

This clip ‘The Universe’ brings to life one of my huge pet peeves. (Not just) Young Women who declare that The Universe speaks uniquely to them through random coincidences. Whether they want to buy a purse they can’t afford, or feel better about cheating on their boyfriend, all of their choices are justified by The Universe.  They twist themselves into knots interpreting external events and circumstances as significant mystical messages being sent to them.  The truth is that The Universe does NOT exist to justify any individual’s choices. Never has never will. Now, finally, Bill Nye explains this obvious fact to the dumb-dumbs who think this way.

Shamefully, I haven’t seen Amy’s recent movie “Trainwreck”, But I will, and I must! EDIT: “Trainwreck” opens July 17, 2015. we haven’t missed it!


Ideas for Being a Fun Aunt

Go to a Movie

I’m taking my 4 year old and 2 year old nieces to “Cinderella” weekend of 3/27. Its a really good sign that the movie is getting excellent reviews! I’m excited about seeing it because it stars King of the North from ‘Game of Thrones’ and Cousin Rose from ‘Downton Abbey’.  “Cinderella” has a Rotten Tomato score = 84% If you are not familiar with the Rotten Tomato’s scoring its a consensus of critics that give it the rating. There’s a separate score for audience reviews too, that’s at 87% for “Cinderella”. Frame of reference: Oscar winner “Birdman” has a 93% and “Gone Girl” has 88% on Rotten Tomato. Movies are always a good idea as far as I’m concerned.  It helps to take kids to movies that I want to see as well (like Harry Potter). I think you can try it between 2-3, depending on the kid.

Arts & Crafts

Do you know how many ready made project-in-a-box busy work crafty things there are for sale at stores like Michael’s? My nieces came over to their Aunt’s house for Mother’s Day and we made plates. They drew on some paper, cut out some stickers, then I glued them on the back with her name and date. There’s also Gingerbread Houses for Christmas Time. They have everything in a box to build gingerbread houses at Michael’s. You don’t have to strain your brain trying to figure out what supplies you need for crafts, they are all in one box. Behold the master pieces:
