mac and me Well this is super exciting for me.  My favourite movie growing up was Mac and Me.  The movie is about Eric, a young boy in a wheelchair who has just moved to a new neighbourhood and a lost and scared alien, Mac who is also new to the neighbourhood and planet.  Mac and Eric become good friends trying to dodge the evil people at NASA who want Mac for experimental purposes.   For me, this was a movie that I could literally and figuratively watch over and over again.  So I am sooo very excited that Jade Calegory (the man who played Eric) was able to answer our celeb questionnaire.

1) What is your favourite 90’s sitcom?
Seems like a lifetime ago and nothing is really ringing a bell. Even now though I don’t really watch a lot of sitcoms, I mostly am into things like Hells Kitchen or No Reservations. Oh wait I do like Glee too.

2) Do you own any music by Rita MacNeil?

Nope… Am I missing out? (HELL YA YOU ARE!!)

3) Do you have any nicknames?
JRide and Onyx

4) Do you have a favourite youtube video?  If so, what?
Not a favorite video but I do have favorite channels. I was addicted to equals three and sexephil but have gone to youtube rehab and now only watch occasionally..

5) Do you have a favorite hat? If so please describe or send us a photo of you wearing said hat.
I wish I did. I love hats but every time I try one on I never seem to be able to pull it off, it’s sad.

6) Do you have any hidden talents? If so, please describe, or send us a video of you demonstrating said talent.
Tragically nothing like tying a cherry stem into a knot with my tongue but I did become pretty good with wheelchair stunts like launching the chair off flights of steps. I don’t know if that’s a talent though or just being a kid with a few screws loose.

I hope this helps and thanks for the honor of being apart of your blog!  (That’s right he feels honored to be part of our blog…so all you celebs out there that haven’t  gotten back to us yet…take some notes for the amazing actor/designer Jade Calegory..and get on it!)

Gemini: If you choose to eat any uncooked meat this weekend make sure it is not anything that starts with a t,c,x,f or p. If you eat any of these meats you will get sick and or die.

Cancer: Don’t be fooled by the Taurus next door, he/she just wants steal your canned tuna.

Leo: Hey leo, you probably celebrated a birthday recently or are celebrating one this weekend. Expect lots of attention and gifts. so no different than any other day. Leos are awesome. Laura is a leo, and she’s probably the best person ever. please send her birthday greetings and lots of gifts.

Libra: your chi-light is pretty low these days. cleaning out your fridge with mr. clean should fix this problem right up.

Pisces: Feel like being anti-social tonight? Have the perfect night in! Rent Harry and the Hendersons and watch it in the nude!


Can’t wait to talk about this movie! I predict Robin will dislike it. she just has to watch it first. Get on that robin! Rita is getting impatient. and a little hungry.


Our latest interview is with Robert Munsch. Munsch is known and loved by many for his unique storytelling methods and his amazing children’s books. Munsch has written over 50 books, including The Paper Bag Princess, Mortimer, I love you forever and Smelly Socks
I approached Robert Munsch with 6 questions. He answered only 2, but don’t worry Bob…we will still Love you Forever (get it??). Instead of leaving his unanswered questions blank I’ve decided to answer them for him since I feel like we are very close (My mom is a super famous author too...no big deal)…so our lives are probably very similar.

1-Today is hamburger day.
2- Rita MacNeil is 66 years and 2 months today, today is clearly a day to celebrate!
3-Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em (yes apparently his last name is Tell ‘Em..who knew) turns 20 today
4- in 1609, Bermuda was first settled by survivors of the English ship Sea Venture en route to Virginia.
5-Today is Claire’s Birthday. She hates velvet and has a cat and a dog.


This movie is about the creation of Facebook.  Looks pretty interesting.  Rita got a sneak peak and said it’s better than canned cheeseburgers!  Check out the trailer


Toy Story 3 was everything I wanted and more for the 3rd chapter of the toy story trilogy. It was fun for the whole family (except I went with a friend because I come from a broken home).  Pixar really tugged at my heart strings with this one. The idea of growing up and moving on is the prominent theme of this movie. That, combined with the introduction of new hilarious characters, and keeping the jokes free of tiresome pop culture references, had me laughing and crying at the same time! which made me look super awkward. Nevertheless I give this movie FIVE woody ritas out of FIVE. what did you think Robin?

Well Laura, since I saw this movie after you saw it and raved about it, I was slightly disappointed.  Disappointed is a harsh word, I’d say I was not overwhelmed with satisfaction.  I have enjoyed all 3 of the toy story movies so I would like to give kudos to Pixar for continuously delivering on the entertainment factor. I agree that there was a great combination of both humour and heart wrenching wholesome family goodness.  I would definitely recommend this movie to pretty much anyone, but I do not believe it was a flawless movie…Laura, 5 rita’s means it was rita perfection which is just a ridiculous statement

Maybe if I saw this in 3D I would give rita an extra hat, but for now I give Toy Story 3, 3 and 3/4 Mr. Potato head ritas out of 5.


Stay tuned for a rita rating on this bad boy…


Okay this review is a little late, but maybe there’s still time to warn anyone who hasn’t seen it. I watched tim burtons Alice In Wonderland a while ago and thought it was the worst movie ever!! Burton you really dropped the ball on this one. I gave it 1 rita out of 5. And only because the popcorn I had was delicious. Robin, what did you think?

Well, Laura I am going to have to disagree with you on this one. I found the story was very captivating and the fat boys were simply enchanting. Various elements of this movie made me feel just rita-macnastic! Johny Depps portrayal of the Mad Hatter left me confused at times but in a good way, like I just visited the dentist and the gas hadn’t made me nauseous yet.
I give this 4 Rita’s out of 5.
