How about #SixOfTheBest  movies I own but haven't watched? You'd read that, right?
When my partner moved in, we mixed our DVD collections together. In the process, I found some movies I own but haven't watched. Here are six of the best of them.

That's right; it's #SixOfTheWorst  this week!
We as a society have started to say the same things over and over again, so much so that they've lost any meaning. Let's stop wasting our time. Here are six of the worst new words and symbols that we (unfortunately) need.

Then I suggest you reread the first two books, just to get you in the right mindset.  Because the third book?  Totally powerful.

Journey with me to the 1990s and find out #SixOfTheBest  things about Herman's Head. 
Let's take a moment to go back to the 1990s, to Sunday nights on Fox, to a show about a fact-checker at a magazine headquartered in New York City featuring a white guy. This, my friends, is six of the best things about Herman's Head.

Today I review #MeAndEarl .
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is, on its surface, a film about making friends with a girl with cancer. But it's also a film about film nerds. So, y'know, that counts.

Let me say up front that our waiter and the hostess were both awesome. They were very nice, the food came out quickly and was hot, and overall there were no problems with the service. However, I really liked this restaurant much more when it was Taco Mac. I ordered the Nacho Mountain with Chicken instead of Beef, and was not thrilled. The chicken and refried beans both seemed to have little-to-no flavor, and when I requested hot sauce, it tasted more vinegar-y than it should have, as if the batch was bulked up with extra vinegar to stretch farther. (I have no knowledge if the hot sauce thing is true or not. That's just what it tasted like.) The salsa was good, but beware -- extra salsa, in the form of a little plastic cup the size of a McNuggets sauce tub, costs 75 cents. I was dining with a friend, and she was unhappy with the sweet tea (didn't say why) and the Mr Pibb (tasted more like root beer than Mr Pibb should). Finally -- and this is NOT the fault of the restaurant -- when the wind blows in a certain direction, the dumpster across the street makes the parking lot smell like trash. I'm willing to give them another shot -- next time I'll order something different, though -- and revise/update the review if the food is better.

This store was probably the best grocery we went to while in Frederick. It was a bit farther than we'd have liked to travel (five miles), but had everything we could have possibly needed. The mushrooms were enormous, the ginger was enormous, and there were plenty of paper goods to choose from. Plus, my friend was able to save 40% on the book she wanted. Because of its sheer size, this location was occasionally hard to navigate -- it took me a moment to figure out where some of the items were. Also, getting into the plaza is difficult; there's only one way in and out, and there's a LOT going on in the plaza.

I haven't had Vietnamese food in a while, and all the reviews said that this place had the best value, so we gave it a try. The large pho was $8 and very satisfying, although I would have liked more vegetables in there. Plenty of meat, though. The limeade was also very good. Service was friendly and the food came out very fast, but once we had the food we didn't see the waitress again until I went up to the counter to get a container for our leftovers. Others have said the plaza felt "sketchy" to them, but I didn't get that feeling. The parking lot could use a little repaving, but that's not the restaurant's fault.

We stopped into Weis Markets to get ingredients for chocolate chip cookies, and also a toilet plunger (don't ask). We got all the ingredients, and the prices and quality were fine (they were out of plungers), but we were not at all happy with the checkout process. We chose to use a self-checkout lane since there was only one cashier working. The lane was very slow, and it required manager approval to purchase a $6 bottle of vanilla used for cooking. The front-end manager was helping several customers at the same time and it took him a while to get to us. Then, just before we finished, our last item caused the self-checkout device to malfunction. At that point we had to wait almost TEN MINUTES for him to come over and approve our purchase. In his defense, he was working at the service desk and he had customers there. I don't blame him; I blame the management for not making sure there was enough staff.

I went here while on vacation in Frederick. The service was good, and the food was good, although I agree with another poster that some of the prices are a bit high. We had the signature sauce, which was interestingly-sweet, and the baked crabby mac (which was quite expensive for a small dish of penne, cheese sauce, and crab).
