So far this week, a kid just waltzed right into Miley Cyrus' dressing room uninhibited, and a couple had to call 911 because their cat was holding them hostage in their bedroom. Two bizarre stories, certainly, and it's only Tuesday, so I can't wait to see where the rest of the week takes us. But the most exciting story so far this week is the prospect of another High School Musical movie.
Thanks for the picture, E!
Yes, I'm a big fan of High School Musical. Well okay... 1 and 3. HSM2 was really stupid.
Anyway, Zac Efron recently spoke with E! about the possibility of a reunion, and he didn't scoff at it. As a matter of fact, he said he still regularly sees the cast members and that he believes all of them would be up for a new installment, saying "We're all thinking about it. I continue to see all the guys from High School. Every time we do... there's just this look between us." I've always liked Zac Efron, and if I ever had a movie made about my life, he's who I'd like to see cast to play me (we're roughly the same height and age), and while Troy Bolton is certainly the coolest kid to ever grace the halls of East High, I'd actually be more excited to see more Gabriella. My undying love for High School Musical is due in most part to two things: the musical numbers and Vanessa Hudgens. But moreso Vanessa Hudgens. Heck I even sat through Beastly and Spring Breakers for her. Surprisingly, Beastly was the better movie. But I digress.
Now I'm just trying to think of a good title that references a notable line from one of the series' numbers... okay I think I got it.
Last night I had the brilliant idea to mix condensed cheddar cheese soup with ramen noodles... or at least I thought it was a brilliant idea. I was picturing a delicious combination that basically amounted to a poor-man's version of a pasta dish with cheesy sauce. What I ended up with was a soggy, runny mess that I only ate about half of before flushing the rest down the toilet. And THEN, I found THIS:
Why thank you, Buzzfeed
I suppose the reason there's so much space between the noodles and the bottom of the cup is so that the noodles can expand and cook evenly, but still. It feels like a rip-off when you look at it like that. But hey, ramen is cheap, and the cheese flavored cup of noodles are far better than my ramen/soup concoction, so I'm gonna have to go out and get my hands on some more.
If you've ever seen a Pixar movie, you know how much they like to throw references to their other work into each film. And if you've never seen a Pixar movie... what the heck is wrong with you?
There are extensive fan theories about Pixar films (the most notorious of which revolves around the idea that they all take place in the same universe in a specific timeline beginning with Brave and ending with Wall-E), but a new, even more intriguing theory has been thrown into the mix. According to this Toy Story theory by Jon Negroni, Emily, Jessie's original owner, is actually Andy's mom.

I could rehash the whole thing here, or I could just direct you to Jon's own website where you can read his description of it. He makes a compelling case, and for my part, I think it holds its weight.
Take a look at Pharrell Williams throughout the years:
Thankye kindly, Weknowmemes
He's 40 years old, but he could easily pass for a guy in his 20s, so it makes sense that when you Google "Is Pharrell Williams," one of the options that pops up is "a vampire."
And this one's from HuffPo, because my computer can't handle image capturing and editing. If it could, I would have just screencapped it myself, but hey, credit where credit is due.
Fortunately, in an interview with TimeOut, he was asked up-front about whether or not he is an undead creature of the night. His response? "No I am not. I'm willing to go on record as saying that I don't drink people's blood. How do I stay so young-looking for a 40-year-old? I wash my face."
As if this is somehow conclusive? Of course he's not gonna ADMIT he's a vampire. That'd be bad for business.
Facebook turned 10 years old recently, and if you haven't seen basically all of your friends sharing it, they're offering a service that compiles some of yourhighlights into a 10th (or however many years you've had an account) anniversary video. As long as you're logged into Facebook, you can check out your own video here.
Personally, I think it's a neat feature. The problem with these videos, like a vast majority of your own personal Facebook content, is how much it actually impacts other users. Data aggregate and scientific research site Buzzfeed put together a graph that shows exactly how much impact your Facebook anniversary video will have on other users:
Still, I recommend you check it out, even if it's a very minimalist video and no one else cares. It's pretty cool to see some of your most-liked posts. My most-liked post was "I'm pregnant," and I'm still really proud of that gem of an April Fools joke.
