5 Classic Disney Movies That Should Never Be Remade

So, there are many things I like about my life as a mom. These include having conversations with C about the glories of cheese; feeling a sense of personal accomplishment when she reaches milestones like potty training; and the fact that if I ever want to get out of anything, I can just say that […]

Women Cast to Play Ghostbusters, Internet Loses Collective Mind

Let me tell you a little story about the Ghostbusters and me. When I was seven years old, my Aunt Jaye took me to see Ghostbusters II in the theater. Before the movie, we went to a fancy restaurant for dinner and ate hamburgers and fries and talked about all the kinds of things seven-year-old […]

Peppa Pig is my homegirl.

“I’m going to write a blog post about Peppa Pig. How should I even start?,” I asked B while we were out on an errand today. “Don’t gild the lily. Just say it’s the most awesome show ever made.” Go ahead and put your hyperbole goggles on ’cause imma bout to spray you with the […]

Losin’ It to Celine Dion

Given the ubiquity of wide-legged jeans that I owned in high school, it may come as a surprise that my first concert was not the traditional rocking fare. REM came to my town when I was in eighth grade, but their show was on a school night so I wouldn’t be attending per the (fairly […]

I get a little choked up even looking at this picture because I loved this band so much. I wish I got this emotional over things that matter.

I wore flannel in July ’cause Eddie Vedder told me to.

I have a confession to make: I’m a reluctant hipster. I like to be the first to know about the latest craze just so I can dabble in it for a sec, declare myself an expert on it, and then scorn it. It’s fun to alienate people by convincing them that you were a fan […]

Awwww. Gotta love some Aileen.

Blockbuster Family Faves

SPECIAL NOTE: Ashley will be taking a break from RTT for a little bit, so be sure to check back here at The Waiting for RTT updates for the next month or so. ;D ♥ In a comment she left on Monday, my mom reminded me of our Friday afternoon visits to Blockbuster Video when […]

If you took all these pictures and laid them on top of each other, you'd get the lead singer to Nickelback.

An Underrated Accountant’s Top 5 List of Overrated Actors

This, I know, is going to come as a surprise, but the awkward girl that was me in high school actually had friends. I don’t know how this happened since I was more interested in writing poetry starring the words “tempestuous,” “ocher,” and “sublime” than I was to having real conversations with people, but against […]

Step One to Beating the Childhood Doldrums: Summon the Dead

When you are a kid, sleeping at a home other than your own is a welcomed break from the norm, despite the apparent lunacy of the practice. I mean, seriously, your odds of contracting childhood lice are high enough as it is just by attending school. It seems like you would want to avoid any opportunity […]

A Compulsory Post Concerning the Naming of the Kardashian-West Baby

B and I talk a lot about what makes a piece of Internet writing good. We share an interest in blogging and social media, so many times we narrate our evening strolls with C with conversations about Medium, blogging, and how we’re going to make our millions talking on the Internet. (Hint: we’re not.) The […]

Five Shows That Will Never Be Resuscitated

Every so often, a show is born that is a critical darling but is largely ignored by the TV viewing public. Arrested Development was such a show. It only made it through two and a half seasons before it got cancelled, much to the dismay of pretty much anyone who has ever tried to impress […]
