So I rented the movie “Pitch Perfect” the other day and have become slightly obsessed with it. It’s not destined to become one of my all-time favorites movies; but who doesn’t love a fun, snarky musical that doesn’t take itself too seriously?

But anyway, my favorite thing about the movie was Anna Kendrick singing “When I’m Gone” and doing the routine with the cups. I am totally going to learn how to do that, and it will become my awesome party trick, and it will be EPIC.
