Christmas in August

Dear Santa’s elves (cause let’s face it — the big guy is on a beach somewhere):


I want. No…I need.

I have extensive experience creating Lego homes with far fewer resources, so I will appreciate the level of detail in this Big Bang Theory recreation.

I hope my advance notice helps secure my ‘order.’

Hi to Rudolph,

The Egg






I love Wimbledon. I look forward to it every year. I consider it a legitimate response to the question,

“What are you doing July 4th weekend?”

But this?



Wheelie, Dad

Today people across the US celebrate those who fathered them (and deservedly so).

But did you know today is also Go Skate Day?


The holiday was started by the IASC (International Association of Skating Companies) to promote skateboarding around the world.

So, clearly you need to get the dads in your life skateboarding as part of the festivities.  Seriously — get a mental imagine.

It will be brilliant.

Happy Skating Father’s Day everyone!

Honk honk


Happy Red Nose Day everyone!

Fried, not grilled

Everyone’s had a cheesy grin on their face today cause it’s National Grilled Cheese Day.


But some critics are accusing our fav sandwich of being a fraud.

It’s true — most folks cook grilled cheese sandwiches in a skillet, which technically makes it a fried cheese sandwich.

Is this supposed to make us feel bad? Or the ‘grilled’ cheese sandwich taste less amazing?

No and no.

As we say in the South, get over your fine self.
