Okay, patriotic sports fans.
It’s time for you to hurl your alcohol-soaked national pride at one of my favorite sporting events — a sport that dare I say more people watch year-round (instead of once every four years):
Golf’s Ryder Cup, which pits the United States Team versus The World — that’s the entire world, people — kicks off tomorrow in Scotland.
I’m giving you an entire day to prepare. Gather your buddies. Pick your bar and drink of choice. Warm up your vocal chords for the vigorous screaming that will commence.
If you’ve never experienced golf on television before, I invite you to watch these world-class players representing their countries going head-to head.
I think you will be surprised to see how truly exciting it is.
You just might find yourself screaming, beer or not beer.

A good friend of mine — a Chicagoland native — recently moved to the South, and relayed an experience on Facebook that made me smile.
He was looking for a banana and asked a woman at a fast food counter if they had any. Her reply?
“We have a banana pudding flavored doughnut.”
Now, it took my friend’s non-Southern brain a while to process this bit of information, but the banana pudding lover in me was PSYCHED.
Banana pudding is one of the greatest desserts on the planet. (They attempt to make it where I live now, but you have to go to the deep South to get the real thing.)
While I’m not the biggest fan of doughnuts as a rule, COME ON –
Ya gotta appreciate their ingenuity!!

This is my friend Wendy Molyneux and her sister Lizzie.
They are writers for Bob’s Burgers on FOX, and last night, they very deservedly won their very first Emmy Award!
Build a special shelf at your respective homes ’cause I am very sure…
This is just the first of many!

My Momma Dog is so silly sometimes…
It’s a good thing I don’t distinguish between feet and hands, or this game might offend me.

I sometimes envy bloggers who have gone the ‘photo a day’ route…especially when I’m tired and finding it difficult to string words together into a pithy theme.
But then I look at the really good ones.
Let’s face it — even if I grabbed my phone (because I’d be using my cell instead of an expensive camera) — I wouldn’t do the subject justice compared to some of the talented folks posting pics online every day.
One of my favs is a former student. You may not be able to see her photos on Facebook unless you’re lucky enough to be her friend, but she has a great eye and sense of humor.
Here’s a fun one from earlier this year entitled “Survivors”:
Gotta love Goldfish…
