Fourth-ish-ness

Being that it’s still July for a few more days, it’s not totally random that I’ll share with you a few of the pictures I took on that lil’ holiday, wherein I went to my aunt’s house and ate a lot, watched cornhole games for hours and chased my cousin’s 1-year-old daughter around – sometimesContinue reading “Fourth-ish-ness”

Merry Christmas, boys and girls

My gift to you – an amazing version of the famous story “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Seriously. Ryan Gosling’s in it, need I say more? drunk-history-christmas-with-ryan-gosling-jim-carrey-and-eva-mendes?playlist=featured_videos And now that you’re done with that, go watch the rest of the Drunk History videos. You won’t be sorry. Oh yeah, and merry Christmas and all that.

Looking for a good present to get me? It rhymes with shmamra.

Oh hey there. I was just thinking earlier today that it’s about that time. About that time when I remember that people that buy me birthday/Christmas presents read this blog. And hopefully, they are susceptible to blatant hints. On account of there’s something I want. And not that i expect it but it would beContinue reading “Looking for a good present to get me?

‘Merica, ‘Merica, ‘Merica

Happy holidays, friends! If you’re reading this in America, you’re celebrating today by not going to work, grilling and setting things on fire watching fireworks!

They’re still about what thisContinue reading “‘Merica, ‘Merica, ‘Merica”

Until my absolute favorite time of year and the time that makes me proud to be a Kentuckian, especially a Louisvillian and I get super-competitive and lose a lot of money. OK so the competitive thing is kind of a lie. I’m always competitive. To theContinue reading “You don’t even KNOW”

If you know me at all you know that the title of this post is something that you’ll hear me say if you’re ever around me for, oh, about an hour. It’s from one of the best movies ever – I don’t care if you agree or not – The Sandlot. That movie features aContinue reading “You’re killing me, Smalls”

10. Holiday treats

This post will be short and sweet – like some of the food I always associate with the holiday. Corny? Yes. If you don’t like it, that’s too bad. This time of year, there are all kinds of family get-togethers and parties with friends and many of them revolve around food of some sort. It’sContinue reading “10. Holiday treats”

1. Holiday movies

As I write this, I’m watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation on AMC. It’s showing every night this week at 8 p.m. and I’ll probably watch it again before the week is over. It never gets old and I can quote most of it from memory, I’ve seen it so many times. Christmas Vacation is oneContinue reading “1. Holiday movies”

It’s December! And for some reason this year I am really, really excited for Christmas. I mean, I always love this time of year..it’s my favorite, except for the ridiculously cold weather, but this year, I dunno.
