MUFF TO x When Harry Met Sally (May 18)

SUP BABES IT'S RICHELLE. 

You know, as someone who pretty much exclusively exists in a fantasy universe of wish-fulfilment where I'm a super sexy lead vocalist of an amazing band, win every argument I ever get into, have a buttload of money and the absolute best sex of my life with Jon Hamm - I don't normally enjoy the fantasy wish-fulfillment of romantic comedies. Sometimes, when the mood strikes me I may revisit classics like How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days, Dirty Dancing or even Something's Gotta Give for the Keanu, but there aren't a lot of tear jerkin' love stories that whet my appetite. 

HOOOOOWEVER. 

>>>WHEN HARRY MET SALLY IS ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES OF ALL TIME AND I WILL CRY MY DAMNED EYES OUT EVERY SINGLE TIME I WATCH IT.<<<

And you'd better believe that I cried my damned eyes out this time too! 

This month we were super excited to have the folks at Festival Pass stop by to film an episode highlighting our muff (haaaaaA). Lisa and I were interviewed by host Kelly Michael Stewart, then each of the MUFFians came on to talk a little about how they got involved. It was fun to be in front of the big lights with cameras around, but I can only imagine that I look like an actual ghost person with bright lights on this face: 

  Pictured: Me smiling at Sydney because she made me laugh. Not pictured: Me haunting your grandmother's creepy basement because I am an actual ghost.&nbsp;

Check out some of the other more alive looking cuties that came by our photobooth: 

And of course the ADORABLE BABES at Heart On who showed up to give support (and also gave us presents and I promptly almost started crying again because I just cry a lot okay).

GENITAL PUN FEMINIST SCREENING SERIES' FOREVER! 

Everyone grabbed a signature MUFFhattan and made their way into the theatre, and I was fully prepared to eat too much popcorn and laugh too hard at the wagon wheel coffee table joke. 

As per usual we had a bunch of amazing prizes to raffle off, but three brave contestants came to the front to compete in a fake orgasm contest for first dibs on prizes. As to be expected, it was absolutely fantastic, and unexpectedly: I blushed like a tiny baby. 

  Ali, whom when asked if she's good at fake orgasms she said without skipping a beat that she's had a lot of practice. HEYO!

Thanks to all of our amazing sponsors, our prizes at this screening were: 

Our 'Getting Ready for a Date' prize pack: a gift bag full of beautiful accessories from Coal Miner's Daughter and a $25 spa gift card from us

One of two of our 'Date Night In' prize packs: the first was all about spending the night on the couch with comic books from The Beguiling and candy from The Candy Bar, and the second was some solid Nora Ephron flicks (all starring Meg Ryan, of course), popcorn and a Dominos pizza giftcard! 

One of two of our 'Date Night Out' prize packs: two hours of free ping pong from our May sponsor SPiN Toronto, or the second pack, which was a $50 dining gift card from us at MUFF and two movie passes from the Carlton Cinema

  Lisa, probably stunned at one of the fake orgasms, I can only assume?&nbsp;
