Holiday glitz

An instagram account has got me thinking about holiday decorating.

The Gay Beards are all about men’s grooming…specifically,  really creative ways to fancy up facial hair.

But their glitter beards?


They just make me want to decorate a Christmas tree completely covered in glitter.

Their tutorial video suggests using beard oil to make the glitter stick.

Hmmm…tree sap,  maybe?

Let it snow


The holiday decorations in my neighborhood have been hung.

I love ’em.

They remind me of the fussy versions from my childhood,  but are cleaner and simpler in design.

I hope they aren’t predictors of lots of snow this winter.  Cause I would like them a whole lot less.

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!
