BECAUSE THIS NEVER GETS OLD
Have a great first evening of the new year folks. I’m going to go drink and play some Rock Band - maybe I’ll be back at the end of the night to dole out some hearts.
juarezafterdarker replied to your post: I just want to take a moment to recognize the… THAT PINK BATHROOM YES! - That just came up the other day too… amazingly, the piece I wrote for the work blog is still my most read article - I guess that has to do with all the CRAZY PEOPLE WHO ARE OBSESSED WITH PINK BATHROOMS.
The Great Unexplained
Bigfoot, UFO’s, chupacabras, the grassy knoll, yetis, spray cheese, the Loch Ness Monster, and why we keep the damn Pledge in the basement when everything I want to Pledge is upstairs.
I just want to take a moment to recognize the contribution of the nearly 200,000 Scrubbing Bubbles who bravely sacrificed their lives today so that I could have a sparkling clean bathroom. You may be gone, anthropomorphic steel can cleaning product, but you are not forgotten. Your memory will always live on in my heart.
Good Morning - It’s time to clean the house.
Sorry, the standard answer doesn’t allow me to include links, so we are going to go this route. We had a really good time last night and I was impressed that so many people came on less than 24 hour’s notice. Wwwesty, Geturowncoffee and her very funny boyfriend, JWynia and his wife, FlyoverFi, Puddingboobs, and JustJoshingU all showed up on a weeknight to watch me get drunk – total side note,...
hiimles asked: Not to worry, we'll invite you to the party THEN laugh at your expense.
changingstephanie asked: You've met me. Sum me up in a paragraph but be nice because, well, you've met me. We both know what I'm capable of.
piratescove-deactivated20130203 asked: What thing makes you the most humble?
My wife purchased a one-way ticket on the NyQuil express, destination Sleepytown. So it’s just you, me and a Jack & Coke or two tonight Tumblr. If you are bored, feel free to ask me a question. Otherwise, I’ll just sit back, relax and get annoyed every thirty seconds when the cat tries to get back into my lap.
I want to clarify my last post. I’ve had the absolute honor to spend time in Chicago and New York City with Adam, Matt, Erika, Kris and Mr. Garp and they are the most intelligent and wonderful collection of humanity you could ever wish to meet. While I want to lay the smack down on them for the amazing brunches they host, there is no other collection of people I’d want to share an...
Now we all know my dear friend Jusky is one hard brunching motherfucker. Emppalp can wear a tie and three days of scruff like no one’s business. Trolleycat likes her 9 AM beers and NO ONE ON THE INTERNETS LOVES BACON LIKE KRIS. This is the A-Fucking-Team of Brunch right there people. However, when comparing them to the Twin Cities wings, burgers and beers group, only one word comes to mind for...
The top reason I love Tumblr is because on no other social media platform can a 37 year old man post a picture of himself in a sock monkey hat and people think, “I’m going to validate the shit outta that monkey hat wearing motherfucker.”

In a minute, I’ll be waking Fiona up from a long winter’s nap (actually only about 90 minutes). Then it will be time for me to make Christmas Eve Brinner (I WILL BE MAKING ALL THE BACONS!!) and then hopefully a holiday movie or two. Tomorrow, we head over to a friend’s house for “Jewish Christmas” - which is always a ton of fun. It really hard being away from...
jusky: Today my mom and I are going to go buy lobsters, do some last minute Christmas shopping, run some errands and then come home, snort bath salts and fight the lobsters. I don’t think you have any idea how much I miss the traditional Maine Christmas - I especially love the part where you taunt them with pictures of the McLobster.
My Top 30 Tweets of 2011
Everyone loves lists, so here’s a hand picked one from 30 different tweeters. Consider this a year end Follow Friday (ACK!) of accounts and people I absolutely love to read every single freakin’ day. Of course, this was supposed to be a top ten list, then it became a top twenty-five and so on up until I forced myself to stop at 30. Anyway, give the tweets below a read and if you...

Thanks, Barb ************************************* To: Everyone@work.com From: Steve in Marketing Subject: RE: Please Turn off PC’s Over the Holidays I have a laptop, do I need to turn that off too?...
So I wrote a work blog I thought I’d annoy you with over here (because I know how much y’all love it when I cross post to all the social media platforms!). Spoiler Alert: It’s about NORAD’s Santa Tracker Program. In the mid 80’s, when my dad got fed up with horrible rabbit ear reception for Cleveland Browns games, we got cable television. Glorious cable television! And...
So I Might
Just have a few holiday cards left over. Drop a note in my ask box you’ve been nice this year and deserve one.
Tweeters Needed: #Tweet4Meat Dec. 18
It’s that time of year again to remind people to remember to remind people to remember to help others. As we put gifts under the Hanukkah tree and light the Christmas menorah and generally get engaged with the religious and commercial aspects of the holiday season (and drink), it’s important to remember there are people in this world who can use your help. A lot of people have had a tough time...

This is a must read. In Adam’s articulate manner I think he really gets to the heart of the issue. jusky: You know my philosophy with respect to protests tends to echo something Milan Kundera once expressed. Organized protest—the sight of people thinking and chanting in unison—is generally more terrifying than whatever the people are protesting. In other words, the answer to our problems...
It's All Your Fault Tumblr...
…that I had a topic to write about at work this week. I blame all of you! Have Yourself a Merry Little Facebook Between the dining room and living room in my grandparents’ old house there was a white arch. Every holiday season, that arch would be covered from top to bottom on both sides with holiday cards. Decked out in vivid greens, reds and whites, with religious symbolism or irreverent...
therealcherilyn replied to your photo: It’s snowing just enough to quiet the earth… snow makes things so pretty. i am only a little envious. ;) It does right after it snows. My favorite part is the dampening of all noise, almost to the point of true silence—something we don’t really get to experience in the city. But it’s also a pain in the ass when you are going to a...
You would think that by 2011 our society would be enlightened enough that sexist people would have better a euphemism for vagina than clam.
So I have to say....
I know I’m more of a Twitter guy, but I think the thing I really appreciate about Tumblr is this… When I miss a day on Twitter, people are all like “fuck that guy for not paying attention to me today.” When I miss a week on Tumblr, people are like “hey asshole, we missed you this week, is everything cool?” There’s something reassuring to know that...
spiralingsidewayz replied to your photo: HI DRUNK! Fiona and I are totally Tumblr in this… I’ve missed your faces. You need to come around more often. I’ve missed my smiling face as well :) I had a really rough end of semester, but I’m on break until January so I’ll be around more during the holiday. I promise. Fiona, however, I’ve been harassing the shit out of...
