Globes Wrap-Up, Fresh Foods for Stinky Breath, and Please Get Peyton a Beer, Stat.

So, what did you think of the Golden Globes last night? My diagnosis was: weird/awkward with a side of hilarity. I am so happy Amy and Tina will be returning next year. As for everything else, they just aren’t as fun. Oscar nominations come out.. I want to say tomorrow… and while Oscars are fun, they’re a lot stuffier. Basically, you’re not going to see a British woman saunter out to present an award with a martini in one hand, heels in the other. That’s a party. I’ll say it again, I really would like to try harder to see some of the movies this time around. I say it every year- don’t you? This year though, I’m expanding my horizons in many ways, and film culture is one of them. Once upon a time, I took a foreign film class in college and loved every second of it. Of course, it ruined romantic and light-hearted comedies for me forever but…. yeah. I used to be a lot more cultured.

So it’s Monday and here in Halifax, it’s a balmy 47 degrees. BRING OUT THE SHORTS. Not a bad way to start the week. Let’s sample!

PS: If you missed the Live Sampling last night, it was fun and good times. I linked directly from Twitter, so if you’re catching up, you’ll have to scroll down a bit to read all my incredibly important, live-thoughts on the show. Or, even better, just follow me @thedailysampler and we can talk there.


Peyton Manning Worries About Beer ( – I’m happy Denver won. I think they’ve long had the makings of a playoff team, without the right quarterback to fulfill the dream. Now that they have PMan and are running like a well-oiled machine, they seem unstoppable. At least, that’s what I need to believe when they face the loser Patriots next weekend. Sorry. I really hate them. Peyton has other super important matters on his mind though, and I can’t say I blame him. Do I spy another endorsement deal?

10 Foods That Fight Bad Breath (The Daily Meal) – I know I’m loved by my hubby because I was welcomed back to Halifax with a giant jar of garlic-stuffed olives. My favorite. He hates olives, and foods that smell haha. So I’ll be also seeking out some strawberries to counteract all the garlic deliciousness, and hopefully he’ll still want to hang out with me.

Game of Thrones Season 4 FULL Trailer (Entertainment Weekly) – You’ve probably seen this already, but if not, it’s a great distraction from the real world. Guess what? Still haven’t finished book 3. I can feel your disappointment. I’ll finish by the end of the week. Promise.

Worst Dressed- Golden Globes 2014 Edition (EOnline) – I should put both but, no one really cares about the cute ones, right? I really loved the beautiful Lupita Nyong’o in her sleek, red-caped gown. She made a statement and was understated, all at once. As for the worst dressed list… hm. What did you think?

Paula Patton could probably take the title on this one. No. Just, no.
