Today is bittersweet for me. As this posts, the Red River Rivalry is currently unfolding it all its glory. I am undoubtedly screaming at the tv and all the dogs are conflicted between attempting to beg and/or steal the game snacks or hiding. If you are not familiar with college football, the Red River Rivalry is the … Continue reading Jonas.
I would like to say that I read the article in The Atlantic with horror and disbelief (click the link for the full article). However, the current administration continues to raise the bar on “can you believe this shit?” so often that honestly nothing surprises me any more. To serve in the military carries with … Continue reading Losers and Suckers.
I’ve spent the week waffling about what topic I should write about, but nothing has really been jumping out at me. In a last ditch effort (my favorite kind!) to get something posted this week, I realized it might be fun to share a few things about me. This is undoubtedly due in large part … Continue reading 50(ish) Questions.
DON’T WORRY…this is not another food post, I promise. What?!? We’re in the middle of a pandemic and nothing makes you realize how mundane and cyclical your diet is like staying at home and self-isolating for four months. This then leads to the realization that you need to spice up things with more bacon and … Continue reading Never Bow To Customs Agents
I know I tend to keep the politics away from here, but it feels wrong not to say something. Not to say anything. Today is July 4th, which should mean something more than just backyard BBQs, baseball, and fireworks. However, it seems odd to celebrate the birth of a nation when that nation is on … Continue reading Melting Into Oblivion
Inspiration for writing topics sometimes comes in the most unlikely of places…in this case, it was in the middle of nowhere in North Carolina. I was there for a wedding and because I’m a dumbass and didn’t actually google to see that the hotel was 2 hours from the airport, I booked a 7:30am flight … Continue reading Battle of the BBQ
Time is a funny thing. It is a slippery slope, especially to me, who puts the “pro” in procrastinate. It always feels like I have all the time in the world and then bam! three weeks have passed and I’m still in the exact same place, with the exact same things on my To-Do list, … Continue reading Time
Did you know that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday? Well, it is. It used to be Halloween, but living in NYC has ruined that for me for reasons too numerous to count. But Thanksgiving…well, it’s all about the food, taking time to thankful, and celebrating family & friends. Continue reading Gobble Gobble & A Whole Lotta Thanks
Like Pearl Harbor, the assassination of JFK, and the Challenger Space Shuttle, everyone remembers what they were doing when the news broke of a plane hitting the North Tower. Many of my friends and family were watching the news while getting ready for work. Listening in shock and confusion as speculations were made about how and … Continue reading Remember Them.
Greetings, salutations, and all that other jazz. It’s heading into mid-August and nearly everyone on social media seems to be posting back to school pictures already, which seems rather early and I’m not even a teacher! For all of you who are a bit shell-shocked by the sudden arrival of back to school, here’s something … Continue reading Sunday Comics: Back To School Edition
