greatness

I hope everyone survived Valentine’s Day.  It’s actually a scarier holiday than Halloween.  No clue how a massacre turned into roses and two-tops but here we are. Let’s ALL go out to dinner and let’s ALL order flowers ALL at the same time. I stopped at the grocery store on my way home from work... Continue Reading →

Pick your Poison

I've been stomping around making trumpet noises for weeks.  The two year wait is finally over.  If you find yourself wondering what I'm doing in the next fortnight, it involves my television, ice sports and random bouts of shouting.  The Olympics have arrived and I'm already watching curling at two in the morning!  South Korea...

My Man

"What's your type?"  I get asked this all the time.  Unfortunately for me, Jason Momoa is taken and build-a-man doesn't exist yet.  It's usually asked after a very predictable lineup of comments and questions genuinely baffled at the fact that "someone like me" is single...whatever that means.  Then comes the part where they go through...

new year, same me

My attempt at a dry January ended this week and while some of you may look at that as a failure, I'm actually quite impressed with myself.  Let's be honest, this is the longest I've gone without drinking since Dawson's Creek was on the air.  This was a pretty big deal for me considering the...

Dream Believer

"We must accept finite disappointment but never lose infinite hope" -Martin Luther King I've had a very inspirational week.  I suppose this should come at no surprise being that we started it off celebrating one of the most prolific and poetic men in our country's history.  We could all use a little Martin Luther King in...

Powerade

Call me ambitious, call me competitive.  Some of my favorite moments in life revolve around sports.  There's nothing quite like the glory that comes with a Grand Slam or a photo finish.  I can still remember standing in a bar in Chicago watching Michael Phelps win the 100 m butterfly in Beijing by one one-hundredth...

I’ll Fly Away

My mom called me in early December to tell me that she wanted to buy my flight home for the holidays.  I did not see that coming.  #lakme for the perfectly executed ambush.  So naturally I just started crying my eyes out while I was sitting by myself at work like some kind of emotionally...

Collision

Minus the times my brothers were active in the military my family has always been together for Christmas.  It's my favorite time of year.  These are my people, my tribe, my kin.  Who else is going to finish my mom's tequila and facetime every single person in my phone?  It's truly the best...for about 4...

Distractionz

I'm going to be one hundred with you.  I woke up this morning and not a single word was written for this week.  This is not typically my M.O.  I wish I could tell you I've been busy spending my nights as a vigilante, trying to make this world a better place, but I'm afraid... Continue Reading →
