Top 10 Bob’s Burgers Burger of the Day

Phew, that title is a bit of a mouthful isn’t it? I’m still not sure it’s grammatically correct, but if you’ve come to my blog for quality writing then you’re in the wrong place I’m afraid!

Anyway – I watch a lot of Bob’s Burgers. Mainly thanks to my 1 year old who thinks 6am is a lie in. Her favourite channel Cbeebies doesn’t start until 6am so if she’s up any earlier than that I normally stick on this other channel that only ever seems to show Bob’s Burgers. It’s bright and colourful, it keeps her entertained whilst I prop up my eyelids with matchsticks, and it’s actually a really funny show!

If you’ve ever watched Bob’s Burgers you’ll know that in every episode, the chalkboard behind the counter in the restaurant features a different ‘Burger of the Day’, and they’re always some form of puns. I love puns, and I look forward to finding an episode I haven’t seen before just to find out what the Burger of the Day is, so whilst I’m having a bit of a lull in movie watching, I thought why not make this an opportunity for a Top 10 List!

So without further ado, and in no particular order, these are my Top 10 Burgers of the Day…

#1 I Don’t Bay Leaf in Magic Burger

Of course, the burgers of the day aren’t the only puns featured in Bob’s Burgers. There’s also the name of the shop to the right of the restaurant and the pest exterminators who’s names are all also puns! I feel another Bob’s Burgers Top 10 list coming on very soon…

My 5 Favourite Dan Stevens Performances

A very Happy Birthday to one of the most important men in my life…Dan Stevens! No, wait that’s not right…I mean my husband! Today he joins me in the final run-up to being 30…yikes! And yes, he loves to remind me that I am in fact older than him (by 2 whole months) and will be 30 before he is. He’s a funny one.

Wait – I just read that paragraph back and it looks like I’m talking about Dan Stevens being my husband…

Let me clarify. It is both my husband’s and Dan Stevens’ birthday today…but they are 2 very different men! But as my husband hasn’t featured in a feature-length movie, this post is dedicated to my 5 favourite performances by Dan Stevens.

Still with me? Here we go…

#5 Colossal (2016)

Only Dan Stevens can get away with being an uppity annoying boyfriend with a posh accent and not make me hate him. On a side note, if you’ve never seen Colossal you really, really ought to. It’s one of the most original yet recent movies I’ve ever seen! By now I’m fairly sure I’m owed some money in royalties for the number of times I’ve tried to sell this movie.

#4 Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (2014)

I ended up watching this whilst falling down a Dan Stevens shaped rabbit hole last year – which is something I need to fall deeper into because funnily enough, having a bay put a stop to that! Anyway, I have two words to sum up why I love his character so much in this movie…HUGE?! ACKMAN?!

best-dan-stevens-movies-beauty-beast

#3 Beauty and the Beast (2017)

This remake seemed to be received like marmite last year, but I loved every minute of it. I just think it’s quite incredible that through all the CGI, the Beast was still very much Dan Stevens, and if you ever have the (dis)pleasure of being on a car ride with me, you’ll be treated to my very loud rendition of Evermore!

best-dan-stevens-movies-the-guest

#2 The Guest (2014)

So, several of my fellow bloggers urged me to see The Guest, in which Dan Stevens plays a psychotic mass murderer and raises the temperature in the room by more than a few degrees by wearing nothing but a bathroom towel. *cough* I mean, his performance was very well acted and…nope, I have nothing else more to say.

best-dan-stevens-movies-legion

#1 Legion (2017 – )

Even though it’s a TV Show rather than a movie, it would feel wrong for the #1 spot to not be the performance of Dan Stevens that made me think “oh, this guy is GOOD.” I really need to catch up and see Season 2 soon, because if it’s half as good as the first then it’s going to be amazing.

What would you include in your Top 5 Dan Stevens performances? What have I missed that I need to see?

Top 10 Captain Raymond Holt Quotes

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is one of my favourite TV Shows, one that I am dreadfully behind on right now. I plan to correct that as soon as possible, especially after it was shockingly cancelled earlier this year only to be rescued by Netflix almost immediately!

Captain Raymond Holt is without a doubt my favourite character, and as today is Andre Braugher’s birthday, today seemed the perfect day to share my favourite Raymond Holt quotes! Here they are, in no particular order…

#1 Whilst watching a dog show

[chuckles] A bold personality.
We know what that’s code for.
She’s a bitch.

#2 When he finally embraced the joy of codenames

VELVET THUNDER!

raymond-holt-quotes-velvet-thunder

#3 When he had to pretend to be straight whilst undercover

[You keep talking about her thigh gap]
That’s my favourite part of a woman.
There’s nothing more intoxicating than the clear absence of a penis.

#4 When we found out his thoughts on the sky

[Would you tell the sky to stop being so blue?]
Yes. I wish it were tan.
[What?]
It’s my favourite color. It’s no-nonsense.

#5 When he tried to raise the team’s morale

Why is no one having a good time?
I specifically requested it.

raymond-holt-quote-requested-it

#6 When he insulted Madeline Wunch (on one of many occasions)

[Hello, Raymond. How do you like my new office? Twentieth floor.]
Yes, I never thought I’d see you this high without a broom under you.

#7 When he embraced his childhood

[I was trying to lighten the mood. The squad’s been stressed since these drills started. Plus, you ordered me to act like a seven-year-old. Seven-year-olds like to have fun.]
That’s true. When I was seven, I used to sneak into my father’s office to see his collection of antique globes.

#8 When he was the friend we all need

Any basic bitch would be lucky to be like you.

captain-holt-quotes-basic-bitch

#9 When he could not even

[My trip here from the train station hey, I swear to you I heard the cab driver mumble under his breath, “You will die tonight.” Is that not the most insane thing you have ever heard? I mean, can you even, Raymond?]
I cannot even.

#10 When he didn’t care for lunch

[Joining us for lunch, Sir?]
Oh, no, I’ve already consumed the required calories for this day period.
[Yummy.]

So tell me, because I could have quite easily made this a Top 50 list, heck I could do a Top 10 simply of Wunch insults, what’s your favourite Captain Raymond Holt quote?

My Current ‘Must Watch’ List

Every movie fan has a list of movies somewhere that they need to watch, whether it’s kept on their phone, scribbled on a piece of paper or simply stored in their memory. As a bit of a nerd for organisation, I’ve been loving using Letterboxd for the past couple of years as an information source and a diary of what I’ve seen. It also has a Watchlist feature which I’ve been adding to for a long time now!

It’s gotten to the point now where there are so many movies in this list, that when I have the free time to watch something, I can’t decide between them, and so some of them have been on this list for over 2 years!

long-list-movies-must-watch

Some of them are classics I’ve been meaning to see for too long, some are movies I know will be terrible but I like the cast, and many are ones that have grabbed my interest from reviews I’ve read by other bloggers. There are also some that haven’t been released yet in the UK, but I don’t want to forget about them.

So to resolve my issue of an ever-growing list, I’ve vowed to watch all these movies by the end of the year. Of course, my list will have more added to it, but I’ll watch the current list in full by New Year’s! In fact, I think I’ll turn this post into a blog page and hyperlink my posts as I complete them!

Here’s the list in full…

Top 5 Impractical Jokers Punishments

impractical-jokers-best-punishments

Here on the little island of the UK exists a TV channel by the name of Comedy Central. It only ever seems to air 2 different shows, Friends and Impractical Jokers. As someone on maternity leave till July who refuses to watch kids shows all day, you can imagine that I’ve been watching a lot of Impractical Jokers! I love it though, it has the perfect amount of cringe to be hilarious, and it’s the kind of show you don’t need to give your full attention to.

In their very own words, Impractical Jokers is a programme which contains scenes of graphic stupidity among four lifelong friends who compete to embarrass each other. Essentially, the four guys (Sal, Q, Murr and Joe) dare each other to do stupid things, or to say stupid things in different scenarios. If you refuse, you lose, and whoever has the most losses at the end of the show has to complete a punishment.

These punishments are sometimes small as simple. such as having to pick up and carry dog poo. Sometimes they’re huge, like getting married to someone’s sister, and sometimes they’re just plain outrageous, like getting mystery tattoos. They’re always funny though, so I thought I would pay tribute to my current favourite show by doing a Top 5 List of my favourite ones. Let the countdown begin…

#5 Sal Playing Bingo

In a huge room full of serious bingo players, Sal was forced to get up and shout ‘Bingo’ every time one of the other guys told him too. What started out as slightly cringy took a turn for the worst when the crowd turned nasty!

#4 Imagine Dragons Concert

Sal and Joe were made to get on stage as the opening act for Imagine Dragons. Dressed not dissimilar to the guys from LMFAO, their songs included ‘Shut Your Face Grandma’ and ended with Sal attempting to crowd surf. I wish I was there!

#3 Sal’s Haunted House Visit

As a huge wuss myself, I totally felt Sal’s pain when he was forced to walk through a haunted house. Featuring horrors such as a creepy girl playing the piano, an old woman chanting in a rocking chair and a moving body bag, I would have noped the hell out of there!

#2 Murr at the Racetrack

Never have I cringed so hard as when Murr was given the punishment of selling concessions at the racetrack, but not being allowed to give any change. It was bad enough to see him just walk away with the change, but when a woman and her husband started to chase Murr down, I actually wanted the ground to swallow me up.

#1 Who’s Phone is Ringing?

Without a doubt, the best punishment was when Sal was made to sit in the audience of a small book reading session, having been told that he’s not allowed to answer his phone when it rings, or turn it off. Every few minutes the guys ring his phone and the ringtone loudly plays ‘Who’s phone is ringing? Mine! Mine!”. The crowd turn nasty, and right at the end Sal takes his turn on stage to present his own book, ‘Silence is Golden’.

 

I’ve just now realised that nearly all of these contain Sal…is he subconsciously my favourite joker or does he just lose a lot? Either way – if you watch the show too I’d love to know what your favourite punishment has been!
