I got an invitation on Facebook earlier this week to join in all the merry digital agrarian fun on Farmville 2. Let me tell you, I was absolutely breathless with excitement when that notification hit my inbox. Either that or I was holding breath waiting for the moment when I would suddenly find myself giving … Continue reading Weekend Debate: Das Farmvilles
I guess it was last Saturday night, during SNL, when I saw the commercial. It immediately made me scratch my head and mumble, “Whizza whazza whozzit?” into my beer. I’m speaking, of course, of the new James Bond Skyfall-related ad for Heineken. That is, this one: Now, I heart me some Bond and, honestly, I … Continue reading Bond, Beers, and Bellyachin’
I ended up with Man on a Ledge at the house a few weeks ago, and didn't waste much time popping it into the old Blu-Ray player. Granted, that wasn't because I was itching to see it or anything: I'm not sure how it got into my Netflix queue. Seriously, was it ever even in … Continue reading Movie in a 100 words or less: Man on a Ledge
Yes, I know, I know. The Weekend Debate is late again. But, look, the Reds clinched the Central Division Saturday evening, the Bengals actually won yesterday, and assuming some sort of Disney-style, Fairy Godmother-esque miracle doesn't befall my Fantasy Football competition during Monday Night Football, I should bring home a win this week. So, you … Continue reading Weekend Debate: Sriracha
If you happened to be a particularly mean and/or nasty person, you know, the sort of type-A, it's-all-about-me, shaking-a-finger-while-wagging-your-head-on-camera-doing-your-Bridezillas-thing, you probably wouldn't be able to restrain yourself from pointing out, potentially loudly, that I've been a terrible blogger recently. I expect it'd be something like, "Mmmm-mmm, my baby-daddy blogs more than you do, and he's … Continue reading Stuff and things and other things (again)
Yeah, I know, it's Monday. Which, you know, barring the odd three-day weekend isn't so much the weekend anymore. So what the Hell's the point of having something called a "weekend debate" if I can't even follow-through on the one basic underpinning of the entire premise? Ahem. Yes, well, I recognize that you indeed have … Continue reading (An inexcusably tardy) Weekend Debate: Pumpkin Time
I wasn’t such a stellar blogger this week. In fact, the only thing standing between this post and the one on Tuesday is a late-night Thursday limerick. And just between you and me, limericks and haiku take about as much time and effort to produce as a cup of hot chocolate from an envelope of … Continue reading If it weren’t for busy times, I’d have no time at all
Some nights when you run through your 'hoodEvery step seems much harder than it shouldYou must fight every mileWith a jaw-clenching smileBut in the end, hot damn, does it feel good!
I have to admit that I'm a little taken aback by the remarkably temperate weather currently favoring us here in eastern midwest, or whatever largely inaccurate geographic designation is current in use for the Ohio valley. Regardless, it's like, cool, you know? As if maybe fall this year isn't only going to be this 10-day … Continue reading More beer-related evidence of a summer gone by
Friends, let me give you a piece of advice: if you ever participate in a recreational sport with any regularly, DO NOT, under any circumstances, take three months off of said activity, for any reason. No, I don't even care that you're going to be out of town on a whirlwind tour of Eastern Europe, … Continue reading Exhausted with a capital "Tired"
