[Vlog] Whitney Watches SPN 9.20 “Bloodlines”

That’s right- last night a new episode of Supernatural aired, and I am bringing you a short vlog about “Bloodlines” – the spin-off pilot for Supernatural: Bloodlines. For those who don’t click through, I didn’t go into how this episode fits into Season 9, because it doesn’t really. The story begins with one of the leads from Bloodlines, and the Winchesters show up and mostly play backup to the characters. And at the end, Dean gets a message from Cas which takes them out of Chicago and back into the main timeline. The main character, a human, is going to…

JJ, Where Are The Women?

As you’ve probably heard, Star Wars: Episode VII is starting to film, and the main cast list has been announced. And in that list, there’s only one new woman (the other is Carrie Fisher). What gives? Sure, there weren’t a lot of women in the Original Trilogy – the only main female character was Leia. And the only other real female characters of any importance were Aunt Beru and Mon Mothma. (I have a hard time counting Oola since her sole purpose was to dance around and then be eaten by the Rancor) But the Extended Universe happened. And while…

Six Months!

As many of you might remember, I went to the hospital mid January for a flare-up of my Crohn’s disease. A terrible, terrible flare-up that resulted in my being put on prednisone for awhile to help the inflammation go down. I envisioned a year of monthly doctor’s visits, monthly blood draws. And it seemed exhausting. So I got stuck with a needle a few times. One time I was given a hard time by the phlebotomist (I love that word) for having a different last name from my husband. Another time the phlebotomist just jabbed me in the vein and…

Friday Food – week ending 4/24

I thought I’d try something new and sort of collect the dishes that I make during the week and share them here with links and my thoughts. First, is a dish that I tried for the first time. Shanghai Noodles. This was delicious! I admit, I didn’t make it with pork (I had ground turkey at home), but it was delicious and so very easy to make. I was able to find all the ingredients I didn’t already have in my grocery store- except for fresh shanghai noodles, I subbed in udon (as the recipe recommended). If you can’t find…

[Vlog] Whitney Watches SPN: 9.19 “Alex Annie Alexis Ann”

I thought I’d continue my Whitney Watches series, by tackling Supernatural next! Only I thought there were enough recap videos and websites, that maybe I could take a closer look at the series itself. Spoilers abound in the video, but please – watch it! What were your thoughts on the episode- what grade would you have given it? I want to know!
