Best. Movie. EVER. January 30, 2009Posted by britunes2 in Uncategorized.
But perhaps the best text you could receive, in all the land…EVER….would be:
For those of you who don’t know….and how could you not if you know me at all….Sister Act 2 is the greatest movie EVER. Whoopi, Lauren Hill, Frankey (hey, ho) that one girl from Legally Blonde, Maggie Smith, Jennifer Love Hewitt, the list goes on and on and on. I have many memories with this movie. When it first came out they were playing it on Cinemax but we didn’t have Cinemax so I would watch it with the squibbles. You know what I’m talking about, the porn squibbles? Most people would watch porn on Cinemax, I watched Sister Act 2. Then one time in Michigan Jill, Erica, Christie and I were, for whatever reason, driving Jill’s dad’s convertible with the top down ROCKING out to “Joyful, Joyful.” Everyone in the cars around us thought we were listening to rap music. If only they knew.
Omg, when the song goes from slow to fast and then they break it down with that dance….UGH. I die. I used to know the entire dance that they do but then I got old and forgot it.
Whoopi has never been greater in any movie before, or since.
She says the phrase: “You’re amazing. I am so. proud. of you.” TEAR!!! And look–Rita’s happy too!!!
The only affection we see between those two in the entire movie. Ugh. Warms my heart everytime.

From the previous post…
“Why do you always post the un-cutest pictures of me and then, as if that’s not bad enough, you
Amanda, you are the most beautiful flower in my garden of ladies. I apologize if you thought I was posting unflattering pictures of you. I thought you looked great in both. And I’ll make fun of a farmer’s tan no matter who you are. How can I not? At least it wasn’t as bad as this guys’:
That’s just disturbing. I love you Amanda!
Happy Birthday…. January 29, 2009Posted by britunes2 in Uncategorized.
She has provided me so much joy….
So many laughs….
And so many tears over the years.
John Travolta on the other hand….well….that’s up for debate.
So Happy 55th B-Day, Miss O. I love you!

Top 15 Most Awkward Moments from last night’s "The Bachelor" January 27, 2009Posted by britunes2 in Uncategorized.
Last night after watching “The Bachelor,” Sarah and Becky emailed me requesting a blog post touching on the events of this episode. At first I was a tad stumped. “Sure, it was a great episode, but can I really eke an entire blog post out of it?” Well it turns out, I can!! I now present to you The Top 15 Most Awkward Moments of Monday night’s “The Bachelor” And even if you don’t watch the show, read on. There are things from last night’s episode we can all learn from.
The Top 15 Most Awkward Moments of Monday Night’s “The Bachelor” in chronological order
1. Nikki’s Freaking Out
This week, all of the ladies were challenged to write a song to Jason, detailing their love for him. For the most part, everyone was excited for this challenge. But then……there’s Nikki. Adorable, lovable, Debbie Downer ass Nikki. Homegirl was not too happy to sing in front of everyone, especially Jason, and made sure she let us know by crying, whining, and then crying some more.
2. Nikki’s Song
Nikki ended up singing, and she didn’t have that bad of a voice…but her song was about her children. That she doesn’t have. No, she was signing a song to her future children. Uh….wasn’t this supposed to be a song about Jason? She then had the audacity to be pissed about not getting the date rose. Stupid bitch. I hate Nikki.
3. Molly’s a ho
So J picked Molly (whose name I thought was actually Holly until I looked it up this morning) as the winner of the song competition and therefore the winner of the one on date. They had smores by a campfire, then she stayed the night in his tent. The next morning, she did the first ever Bachelor walk of shame!! A tad awkward walking into the house wearing Jason’s clothes and showing off to all the other girls who are trying to win Jason’s affection, donchathink?!
4. Shannon, Part 1
5. Kissing Naomi
9. Shannon, Part 2
10. Shannon Part 3, The Napkin
13. Nikki’s Goodbye Speech
It was totally obvi that Nikki was going to be the one sent packing. She and Jason had like, ZERO in common, and she was totally tragic. My favorite part of the night Nikki ever though, was when she was in the limo on her way home. And I quote: ” I never saw this coming. Never. Jason and I had a great connection. I don’t want to say ‘I deserve this,’ but I deserve this. Stephanie is wonderful, and had a wonderful marriage with a great man. Unfortunately, he died. I’ve never been married. It’s my turn.” Ah Nikki, I shall miss you so.
14. Crazy Bitch’s Kiss
Blasts From the Past January 27, 2009Posted by britunes2 in Uncategorized.
On a recent Saturday night at home, I decided to take a look through some old pictures and feel sorry for myself. I took the liberty of scanning some that I found humorous for your viewing pleasure. Please to enjoy.
Bad Hair Day #1
Freshman year of college, highlighting hair with Shannon, my next door neighbor. Shannon became like a sister to me that first year and although we grew apart in the following years we never completely lost touch. I’ll never forget the fun times I had that first year.
Bad Hair Day #2
For some reason I thought it was a good idea to bleach my hair Freshman year. Why didn’t anyone talk me out of it? Ah well, I was young, I was in college, and it was the late 90’s. I suppose that’s the thing to do, eh? We’ve all had our share of hair bleach gone wrong (right Spenc?)
Bad Hair Day # 3
Meet Melanie. Melanie is a Morman. Melanie is a white girl. And yes, you are seeing correctly–Melanie has long braids piled on top of her head. This picture was taken at the end of year theater banquet and I wish I could say Mel had that hair for this occasion but no, she had this hair for many months prior. Hair Fail.
Sarah! I have adored this picture for years, probably because we look like a couple. Sarah was one of my favorite people that I met Freshman year and I’m so happy to be talking to her again. She’s a frequent visitor to BriTunes so a shout out to Sarah!
“Pride” and Prejudice
At the time do you think any of those two boys with me were gay? Nope. Now, do you think any of those boys with me are gay? Both. When I first started at USU theater I was the only ‘mo in the department and by the time I left it was littered with them. I started the trend, I did. This was taken before a performance of “Pride and Prejudice” where I played about fifteen different characters. Captain Champagne being one of them. Look at my hair–it’s like a frickin‘ perm.

Stupid British boys…. January 26, 2009Posted by britunes2 in Uncategorized.

I don’t ask for much in life. But why does the Universe feel the need to mess with a potentially great thing? My life is all about timing, and I hate it. I don’t like to throw the “fate” word around but if we had decided on going to have beer and hot dogs at Rudy’s I never would have met him. If we had decided to go home after Bamboo, I never would have met him. It was meant to be and therefore, meant to torment me. But I got it out there, I’ll get out of my head, and hopefully see Britain again at some point this week. I asked him when I could see him again and he said in his ADORABLE British accent “I don’t know, I’ve got dinners and a lot of friends to say goodbye to.” And he calls me “Brian Bah” cause he’s British and so he doesn’t say his “R’s”…..sigh. Stupid accent. Stupid boys. Stupid Universe.
Also, if you happened to miss Friday’s edition of the Gay Truth Booth, check it out here
Next week’s edition should be pretty cool because I think that we’re going to be doing a video version of the Truth Booth. We’ll see how it turns out.
Pretty normal Monday at work. I’m about to do a Build and Burn class and my legs are nervous for the work out their about to endure. More from me later. Bye. Or as Britain would say…”Cheerio.”
WTF?! January 23, 2009Posted by britunes2 in Uncategorized.
Seriously Lost, WTF? You were so confusing last season and now in the first episode you’re not even going to start answering any questions you’re just going to give us more??! Wtf?! If I wasn’t so concerned with finding out the secret of the island I would quit you, I would quit you right now. I’ll stay true, but man you frustrate me!
I have this particular pair of headphones that I like so I always buy them but it NEVER FAILS they break within two months. One of the ears goes out and it drives me CRAZY only hearing out of one ear. Argh! Wtf?!
