How I Met Your Mother: The End, The Alternate, and Robin Sparkles

Thanks to Amazon Prime (or Netflix, if you prefer), I have finally watched the How I Met Your Mother finale.

I must join the horde of fanaddicts who abhorred the How I Met Your Mother ending.

(Yellow Umbrella > Blue French Horn)

I was ok with them killing of The Mother.

That could have been the sad series finale twist.

Or maybe Ted telling his kids that he was dying too.

But nah…

They had to piss me off by breaking up Robin and Barney.

When in (my) reality, they should have become some sort of power couple.

And I hated that Ted went running back to Robin.

It pretty much nullified his relationship with The Mother.

After all, he was moving to Chicago because his best friend was marrying the love of his life.

So maybe he just settled for The Mother because she was good enough since he couldn’t have Robin.

Boo! Hiss!! No!!!

I hated that Robin regressed back to a single-minded career woman living alone with her dogs until her Prince (Ted) comes to rescue her.

I am so sick of strong women always ending up alone on tv shows.

(Reba, anybody?!?!)

I did love that Barney fell in love with his daughter but it should have been Robin’s daughter too.

Barney (and apparently Robin too) has enough money to invest in experimental treatments to get her pregnant.

Or they could have had a surrogate.

Or adopted.


Nevertheless,  I bid faretheewell to Robin Scherbatsky (Jacoba Francisca Maria “Cobie” Smulders), Lily Aldrin (Alyson Lee Hannigan), Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris), Marshall Eriksen (Jason Jordan Segel), and Theodore Evelyn “Ted” Mosby (Josh T. Radnor).

And though I hardly knew you, R.I.P. Tracy McConnell (aka The Mother, Cristin Milioti).

 P.S.  Here is the alternate HIMYM finale.

Not nearly as polished as the real finale but a much more satisfying resolution.

And for us Robin Sparkles fans…Sing it again, Coby!

Ok, her voice was really bad so that may be why this scene was deleted.

And they solved the mystery of the pineapple…

Veronica Mars: The Show, The Movie, The Book

A long time ago, we use to be friends, Roni Mars and I…

…until the station pulled the plug and left me hankering for a real resolution to the series.

How I missed that there was a 3rd season I don’t know.

But I rectified that with a quickness when I found out that I could watch full episodes of the Veronica Mars TV show online on Amazon Prime.

I began to stream Veronica Mars Season 1 through Season 3 immediately and found myself disappointed that there was not a Season 4.

(Random thought, but did anyone else hate what they did with the Veronica Mars We Use To Be Friends theme song in Season 3?!?)

Enter the Veronica Mars kickstarter program and the crowdfunding of a Veronica Mars movie.

I was super stoked when I first watched the Veronica Mar trailer on Youtube.

I was satisfied with the Veronica Mars Movie

I say satisfied because, omg, it left me with because it left me with so many new questions.

First off, I had to do an imdb Veronica Mars search to refresh my memory regarding Carrie Bishop.

The original actress was Leighton Meester (of Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl fame) but was portrayed by an unknown Andrea Estella in the movie.

No wonder I didn’t remember.

Ok, first thing that seriously bothered me is why Wallace is working at the school as a coach.

After making such a big deal about Wallace studying mechanical engineering or whatever it was all throughout Season 3, why isn’t he working in that field?!?

And what is going to happen to the Kane’s. How’s Duncan doing on the run with the baby (the Kane security guy knows where he is or, at least, was the last one seen in contact with him after he did the hit on Aaron Echols). Did Veronica really let it go about Jake Kane being the one to release her sex tape? Why didn’t Weevil finger Celeste Kane as the one who shot him?

Speaking of Weevil, is he back in the gang for good or will he go back to being daddy goody two shoes with his wife and kid.

Is Dick Casablanca really on prescription weed? Can’t really blame the guy after all that he has been through. He personified tears of a clown if you ask me. Or, to be more modern, fake it til you make it. His slogan is now wake, bake, fake, and make.

BTW, did you know that you can catch Dick Casablanca, PI on Play It Again, Dick.

Are they just going to leave the murder of Deputy Sacks unresolved?

Will Keith Mars become Sheriff again?

(Speaking of Keith, I really miss Backup. I guess 10 years would have been unreasonable for them to have the same dog. ~sigh~)

Why didn’t Stosh “Piz” Piznarski fight more for Veronica after being together almost 9 years. And why was she justing meeting his parents now?

What happened to Wallace’s Mom and Brother?

And we all know that Veronica decided to stay in Neptune but will she be a lawyer, a PI, or a conglomeration of the two? Will she work with her dad or branch of on her own?

Apparently fellow Marshmallows, there is a Veronica Mars book that takes off just where the movie ends.

And it is written by Veronica Mars show creater Rob Thomas.

No fan fiction here! Woo Hoo!!!

Veronica Mars: An Original Mystery by Rob Thomas: The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line

Ten years after graduating from high school in Neptune, California, Veronica Mars is back in the land of sun, sand, crime, and corruption. She’s traded in her law degree for her old private investigating license, struggling to keep Mars Investigations afloat on the scant cash earned by catching cheating spouses until she can score her first big case.

Now it’s spring break, and college students descend on Neptune, transforming the beaches and boardwalks into a frenzied, week-long rave. When a girl disappears from a party, Veronica is called in to investigate. But this is no simple missing person’s case; the house the girl vanished from belongs to a man with serious criminal ties, and soon Veronica is plunged into a dangerous underworld of drugs and organized crime. And when a major break in the investigation has a shocking connection to Veronica’s past, the case hits closer to home than she ever imagined.

I gots ta have it!!! Lol.

I have a google alert to see if there is ever going to be a Season 4 or another Veronica Mars movie.

So far, nothing concrete yet.

Hurry up already!!

We Marshmallows are waiting!

Official Trailer of Fifty Shades of Grey

Let me preface this by saying that I have yet to read even a single sentence of the 50 Shades of Gray trilogy of books.

So when I clicked on this link for the trailer of the movie, I was so less than impressed.

The woman in the trailer looked more beaten down than curious or intrigued.

And the man…I guess the purpose was to make him come across as a monster?!?!

Then I noticed that the date on the trailer was April 5, 2013 and despite it saying that it was the official trailer, perhaps it was not.

The next link for the movie Fifty Shades of Grey was a bit more intriguing to me.

While I may not ever watch the movie, at least this trailer didn’t repulse and repel me.

The female is a much softer, realistic “non-Hollywood” typical type.

The male has eyes that say “if you would just accept me as I am, I could love you forever”.

…and, of course, I find myself debating whether the Beyonce song actually matches the theme or the movie or not.

Guess time will tell.

Well-known companies that hire work from home

It has only lately that the thought of working from home has become mainstream.

Yet, for others, the inherent risk of working from an unknown entity keeps it taboo.

For those for whom this is true, there are some really well-known companies that hire for telecommuting positions.

I am compiling a list here and will update as I come across them.





Carnival Cruise Lines

Double Tree Hotel


Kelly Services



Pizza Hut



Walt Disney World Resort

Coming Soon:

Neiman Marcus

Let me know of any other name brand companies that allow telecommuting and I’ll be sure to do the research.

I love these kitty panties

10462583_823412744343030_9138754950914406729_nIt was love at first sight for me and these panties when I spotted them on Facebook.

I mean, come on, one of my favorite sayings when I accidentally flash someone is that I hope that they enjoy the show.

And who wouldn’t get a kick or at least a side eye out of these panties.
I searched for these cat panties on Amazon but, although I didn’t find them, I did find some…er…other interesting things.

But still, mama wants these panties if anyone knows where I can find them.

Is that chick still texting your man?

10437337_781927531839395_1894007129364898848_nOk, so you are in love….

He is your one and only.

But are you his?

What if that chick is still texting or calling  your man?

Is she in love with him too?

Is she trying to play games?

Or is he the one playing games?

One in your pocket, one in the socket, and one in the palm of your hand.

That’s how players play.

What do you think if another woman is constantly calling or texting your man?

How do you feel about?

Or, better yet, what do you do about it?

I am kinda iffy on the Amazon Fire Cell phone

I was busily linking products on my blog to the appropriate Amazon product when I saw the advertisement for the Amazon Fire phone.

In both curiosity, and I admit, a tinge of excitement, I clicked over and took a looksy.

Reading the product description, although the cloak it in how the features will benefit the consumer,  I read into the description that the phone will be constantly pushing Amazon products.

Which could be quite annoying.

I can’t say for sure being as I have yet to lay my hands on the phone personally.

“peek to see detailed views of clothing, shoes, and more in the new Amazon Shopping app for Fire phone”

“Quickly identify printed web and email addresses, phone numbers, QR and bar codes, plus over 100 million items, including movies, TV episodes, songs, and products—simply press and hold the dedicated Firefly button to discover useful information and take action in seconds.”

“For a limited time, Fire phone includes a full year of Prime.”

Ok, that Prime thing sounds pretty sweet!

But the phrases that show that this phone is primarily an Amazon marketing machine just keep going on and on and on….

Plus, a tie to AT&T for two years…I am definitely saying no thanks.

However, for some people, this phone will be a wet dream come true.

How many times have I wanted to take a photo of something and be able to purchase it immediately.

The cost of the phone is $199 with a service contract ($649 without).

And that is with 32 GB!!

The phone also comes in a 64 GB for $299 ($749 without contract).

The phone actually drops on July 25, 2014 but, in the way of Amazon, you can preorder the phone today.

Glad I snapped a quick pick as soon as I brought it home because they tore into the thing.

I haven’t bought any sweets in a while.

Check out the before graduation picture.


And the after graduation pictures.

My oldest son barely had any white space on his diploma and 4 chords and a stole around his neck.


Plus the breeze gave us just a tease of his sweet suit.

That’s two down, one to go for me.

Woot! Woot!!

Proud mama over here!!
