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.
Happy National Rum Day! I think one of the best parts about rum is that either you’re enjoying it while someplace tropical or, when you can’t be some place tropical, one sip will transport you there. Rum has a very dark and stormy past—and I’m not just talking about the drink! It is believed to … Continue reading Yo Ho Ho Ho…
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
It must be Sunday, as I find myself parked on a barstool at my favorite spot down the street to partake in what I believe to be the best bloody mary on the planet. Continue reading Bloody Sundays
Life is funny. Recently, I went back home to Texas for a visit, which conveniently coincided with Jeff (having won last month’s challenge) setting this month’s challenge as Environment. Hailing from the Texas Hill Country Appellation, I mentally began creating bullet points about the environment of the Texas Hill Country Appellation and which wineries … Continue reading MWWC 36: Environment
In trying to find pictures for Throwback Thursday, I realized I have a lot of pictures of adult beverages (that is said with pride, by the way!). As such, I’ve decided that rather than share pictures of me with bad 80s hair and glasses that legitimately covered half my face, I could easily share glasses … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday Luau Edition
As previously mentioned, our last day we decided to put some miles on the rental car and see where the open road would take us. Not this open road. But the one that follows this map (courtesy of Lonely Planet!): We started in Poipu (southern most tip)–as that’s where we stayed. We drove to Lihue … Continue reading Around-ish The Island

Despite my first two ill fated attempts at snorkeling, I was willing to try again. I figured if there was anywhere in the world where I might have a good snorkeling experience, it was Hawaii. Just FYI: if you’re searching for snorkeling in Hawaii, there are a plethora of options. We chose one that included more … Continue reading Third Time’s A Charm!
…just don’t feed the nēnēs! Yeah, I know it’s corny–but I have approximately 12 minutes to post something, I’m not even home yet, and my brain is a bit fried. Plus, every time I see this sign that song gets stuck in my head…. But since I’m also feeling the need to be educational: the … Continue reading Watch Me Whip…
