Election Season 2016: April O'Neil's Rallying Halloween Bash!

Dear Diary,

Filming for Jaws 5 is going so slow. The first robotic shark caught fire and destroyed a set. Filming has been put on pause. The film's director Mark Hamill was caught in a political nightmare with the current election. He had personal emails in his account regarding information on presidential nominee Boo Berry and apparently everyone is freaking out. Something about the real reasons why Yummy Mummy and Frute Brute have been missing on shelves. So he has been taken away from the set to sort it all out. It's just crazy. I don't even know who will win. The candidates all seem so tasty this year. Anyways, it's also Halloween. So let's get into it!

She was blinded by the light

It's another week, which means another topic from the wonderful Pop Culture League. I have taken some time away from crafting my own life size wax Jaws figure to share my thoughts on the latest challenge:

Wax on glitter! Wax on!

Ya know what's sad to me? I've never been to a wax museum, which made me think I'd have a difficult time discussing this week's Pop Culture League challenge over at Cool and Collected. I think I got it though. Like Alexis Colby from Dynasty always says, "I adore a challenge." So just what was the topic exactly? Read it and watch it melt off your tongue:

The local Wax Museum is having a fire sale and you have the opportunity to add a life-size, life-like action figure to your collection. Who do you choose?

Well dear readers, click the link and let's find out who I went with.

Miss M Presents: Behind the Bite! (A look inside Jaws 5!)

Dear Diary,

In an effort to rebuild my public image so that I may join a team of so-so super heroes, I have taken orders by Nick Fury to appear in next summer's Jaws 5! I am on my way to the first read through with the ensemble cast and I am just freaking out. Jaws is a big deal for me, so to be a part of the cast is just the biggest dream come true. I can't wait to find out what they have in store! It's Jaws 5! Where have you been all my life?

Hey, I could be in the Olympics!

Like Jean Grey in a green and gold suit rising from some water, Brian over at Cool and Collected has brought back the League of Extraordinary Bloggers, which is now just called the Pop Culture League. Every week there is a new topic for us all to discuss. This week we are all pondering:

If _______ was an Olympic sport, I'd have a gold medal around my neck.

Let's see what I'm good at...
