Blocked someone on Twitter? Maybe Not Completely.

So I was browsing my Twitter feed when I started to see a friend of mine tweet at someone I’ve blocked. (Yes, you can probably guess who it was that I’ve blocked on Twitter) We have a lot of mutual friends on social media, but I haven’t seen ANYTHING in a year. So I’m assuming this is due to some new change with Twitter. Fact of the matter is, if you are using Twitter Lists, be aware that you can still see tweets from someone on that list to someone you’ve blocked… if that person was on the list originally.…

Patriot Day.

Sitting down on the curb yesterday, Oldest Kidlet (now a fourth grader) looked over at me. “Tomorrow’s Patriot Day, Mom. I need to wear red, white or blue.” He paused. “Because it’s 9/11,” he explained, though he knew I knew. He wasn’t around when it happened. But he knows. Probably more than most kids his age – his interest in skyscrapers led him down a YouTube wormhole he wasn’t quite ready for. He knows statistics, he knows what was destroyed, but it’s hard to get him to really conceive what the loss was like. Or to get him to understand…

#KidletBros: First Impressions of Disney Infinity 3.0

This Sunday, BIL and his girlfriend surprised the KidletBros with Disney Infinity 3.0. The Saga Bundle (w/ Boba Fett!) and a bunch of figures to get them started – it’s their birthday and Christmas present from them. (I should point out it was only a surprise to the Kidlets, they’d asked us ahead of time if it was okay) What they got – the Saga Bundle, which included Boba Fett and the Twilight of the Republic playset (which came with Anakin and Ahsoka) and the Classic Trilogy. Then they bought Sabine, Obi-Wan, Yoda and Olaf and a set of SW…

[VIDEO] Whitney Watches: Teen Wolf 5.10 “Status Asthmaticus”

Well, we’ve made it through a whole season – so it’s time for the last Whitney Watches for Teen Wolf’s Season 5A. What did I think? Did we finally get some answers? Now, if you saw that and went… huh. I’m doing a season wrap up video this weekend. To talk about everything, especially what I would have done differently. And I might have a special guest – so make sure you check back for that!

[VIDEO] Teen Wolf 5.08 “Oroboros”

It’s that time already, time for another edition of Whitney Watches. For those new to my blog, for this series of video I pick a show and take a critical look at each episode and the series overall. I talk about the events of the episode, things from the past that have paid off, and where I think things will go in the future. Because of it’s a lot to cover, I assume you’ve seen the episode. If you haven’t watched “Oroboros” yet, go watch it! And then come back here. For my outfit, I’m wearing a lookalike for Kira’s…

That isn’t a compliment. Really.

So I shared a vlog two days ago, and was excited… because I had a killer thumbnail in which the lighting was great, my makeup was great, and so was my hair. I think I might have told just about everyone who lives in this house that my makeup game was on point. See? Nailed it. Creeps everywhere must have agreed, because I proceeded to get comments on Tumblr and on a couple different social networks (privately, mind you) about how these guys just had to tell me how pretty I am. Nothing about the video. Just how pretty I…

[VIDEO] Whitney Watches: Teen Wolf 5.07 “Strange Frequencies”

This video covers episode seven of this season – “Strange Frequencies” So if you’re a fan, who has watched the episodes – this series is my critical look at what’s going on. It’s filled with spoilers, and I assume that you’ve watched the series for this discussion. (If you haven’t watched the episode yet, go watch it, and come back!) The episode titles have been pretty much on point this season- this one is based in Lydia’s theory that you could disrupt the Dread Doctors using certain frequencies. My outfit in the video is Lydia’s America Rag top, as seen…

My blog is 6 now.

I honestly don’t know how I feel about knowing that. But I was looking at early blog posts, and wham. My first blog post was August 1, 2009. The day before I’d gone to the spa with my best friend Jerad. We used to go both for my birthday in January and then his. And while we were laying out in the sun, I was griping about my lack of writing. I’d hit a wall with writing fiction and just wasn’t sure what to do. So he suggested I start a blog of my own, and the next thing I…

[VIDEO] Whitney Watches: Teen Wolf 5.03 “Dreamcatchers”

This video covers episode three of this season – “Dreamcatchers” So if you’re a fan, who has watched the episodes – this series is my critical look at what’s going on. Granted, this episode is mostly recap, but it’s hard to really guess much about a season or talk about character arcs when you only have two episodes to base it on. Your thoughts on last night’s episode? I didn’t say it in the video, but I’m really sad about how the ep ended. That character was cool. As I said last week, I’m trying to wear a Teen Wolf…

[VIDEO] Whitney Watches: Teen Wolf: 5.01 & 5.02

Teen Wolf is back, with its fifth season – so I thought it was time I gave it the Whitney Watches treatment. This video covers the two part premiere- “Creatures of the Night” and “Parasomnia” So if you’re a fan, who’s watched the episodes – this series is my critical look at what’s going on. Granted, this episode is mostly recap, but it’s hard to really guess much about a season or talk about character arcs when you only have two episodes to base it on. Thoughts? I’d love to hear where you think this season’s going! Just leave me…
