Speak nicely or forever hold your “peace!”

Feels like I’ve been away forever! I’ll just blame this rare stretch of cat-got-my-tongue on being super busy. Which certainly isn’t untrue, though there may be more to the story than just that. Don’t you hate it when people are vague? Anyhoo, there was nothing vague about karma bitch-slapping my wife in the face one … Continue reading Speak nicely or forever hold your “peace!”

United in Orange

I find the cult of sports fandom fascinating. All day long, I had coworkers coming up to me and offering their congratulations after the Denver Broncos beat Carolina to win Super Bowl 50. I received heaps of praise and so many fist bumps, high fives, and pats on the back, you'd think I played a crucial role … Continue reading United in Orange

No Bright Colors in the Zombie Apocalypse

I was watching The Walking Dead last night and made an interesting observation. Not sure if I ever noticed it before, but for some reason there are no bright colors in the zombie apocalypse. Everybody is cloaked in gray. This lends an eerie ambiance to the show, but a one-dimensional wardrobe is not very realistic. I … Continue reading No Bright Colors in the Zombie Apocalypse

Didn’t See That Curveball Coming

I like to shop at thrift stores. Not because I'm cheap, but... OK, fine. It's because I'm cheap. Though I prefer to call it "fiscally responsible." Why should I go to Kohl's and pay twenty bucks for a shirt when I can go to Value Village and pay $2.00 for that same shirt? I'd rather … Continue reading Didn’t See That Curveball Coming

Carnival and Kangaroos

Oops, I did it again. Subconsciously, I've been on a quest to simplify my life. I feel there are too many distractions in the modern world, and they're getting in the way of the truly important things. Excellent case in point: I love reading, but usually only have time for that before bed. Up until … Continue reading Carnival and Kangaroos

What’s to Love About Zero?

The other day, I came to a realization that completely changed the way I think about footwear. It caught me off guard, but there is no denying the truth any longer. Loafers are my new best friends. Once upon a time I was a tennis shoe guy, and my allegiance belonged to Nike. I wore … Continue reading What’s to Love About Zero?

Anybody Seen Alex Deibold?

The Winter Olympics have been on for a while now, and I've been kinda into them. I marveled over the dirty water and deplorable housing conditions in Sochi, admired Shaun White's new haircut, cheered the American bobsled team on to Gold while wondering exactly how much skill "driving" a bobsled really involves (doesn't it pretty … Continue reading Anybody Seen Alex Deibold?

Put a Lid On Your Trash Talkin’

So, my beloved Broncos apparently forgot there was a football game to be played yesterday. Losing sucks, but it's part of being a diehard fan. You have to take the lows with the highs. It hurts that I waited 15 years to see my team make it back to the Big Show, only to be … Continue reading Put a Lid On Your Trash Talkin’

Searchin’ For My Lost Shaker of Salt

I have a feeling I might take things too literally sometimes. Yesterday, I was heating up a cup of soup for lunch. Reading the directions on the label, I saw this: So what did I do? I reached over and shook the microwave before opening the door. Knowing full well that Campbell's wanted me to shake the … Continue reading Searchin’ For My Lost Shaker of Salt

Moscow Mules, Molly’s House, & More Mile High Memories

Today bites. But that's always the case after a long weekend. Especially one so chock full of good times and amazing memories. Our adventure began Friday afternoon. After a morning that dragged so s l o w l y it felt like the minute hand on the clock was moving backwards, my dad showed up … Continue reading Moscow Mules, Molly’s House, & More Mile High Memories
