Rob Delaney and Life of Pi


So, this morning did not go as planned.  Apparently, waking up was not on my agenda this morning, so when my alarm went off this morning and Milo (who was sleeping on me) lifted his head, I actually said, out loud, “Hello no, Milo,” and reset the alarm for 90 minutes later.  And it was glorious!  One of the best decisions I’ve ever made (after getting Milo, buying this house, and accepting James’s proposal,of course [in that order :) ]). So bright and early tomorrow, it will be Insanity time, but for now, it’s relaxing time.

I’m relaxing with this delicious one minute cookie that I saw on Jessie’s blog.

I added syrup like she mentioned, and holy cow, it was wonderful!


So, as promised, a little recap of Rob Delaney and Life of Pi.

Rob Delaney was excellent!


He tells a lot of jokes about his child and his married life, but makes it relatable and hilarious!  He is definitely a story teller more than a strict punch line comedian, but the pay off to his stories were always worth it!

As always, I recommend seeing any comedian, but Rob Delaney would be a great intro into the comedy world — funny, but nothing too over the top!  Look into it!

And as for Life of Pi — I loved it!


I was expecting nothing from this movie, and my expectations were exceeded times a million.  First of all, there were animals all over the place, so obviously I loved that a lot, and the imagery was great, but I was super surprised how much it kept my attention considering the majority of the movie took place on a boat with only one actor.

I also enjoyed each actor who played Pi — the movie shows him at several different ages, and I thought each actor — even the young Pi — was great!  The movie also made me laugh more than I expected.

I think part of the reason I enjoyed it so much is because my expectations were so low, but I really did like this movie a lot.  I would recommend it to everyone, especially on the big screen!


Well, that’s it for tonight, so I can actually get up tomorrow!  But tomorrow, I have a chicken chili recipe that turned out amazing, so tune in for that :)


  1. Ha…I hit snooze often :) We tried Insanity 2 years ago and I like…died. It was awful for me but I also was just starting to workout seriously. Maybe I should give it another shot?

  2. Now I’m excited! I’ve actually never had chicken chili, but I’ve been looking for a good recipe!

  3. Thanks for the Pi review. I went in to Slumdog knowing nothing about it and loved it. I also went in to Avatar not knowing much.

    My only concern is that i’ll be a bawling fool since animals always make me cry.

    Did you see it in 3D?

      I teared up a bit, I have to admit, but the animals are the main reason I loved it! Not in 3D (not a fan), but it was great on the normal screen!

  4. really? gosh I am so torn about seeing this movie, it is hard to see how a book like that could be a movie.

  5. Truthfully, I started the book a few times and couldn’t get through the first few pages…so I wasn’t so sure about the movie….but the previews looks so good, I’m intrigued to see it (and your review adds to that!)

  6. good to know! I’ve been wanting to see Life of Pi but wasn’t sure how I would like it. ;-)

    I need to see some comedy!!!! That sounds like a fun date night.

  8. “hell no, Milo”- that commenting had me laughing out loud!

    Now you have me considering seeing life of pi. I have pretty low expectations but you raised them!
