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?

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.

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.’

What a difference a day makes.
Sam Groth, an unseeded player from Australia, was last seen on the courts at Wimbledon in his traditional tennis whites. Nothing to mar the surface except the brand logo.
It is a different story today during his headline match on centre court with Roger Federer.
Note the sponsor patch that has been applied on his right sleeve. There is another out of view on his left arm as well.
Those last-minute sponsorships can earn a player $50,000 a pop.
When you add that to his projected winnings for losing in the third round — it looks that way at this point — Groth could walk away a Wimbledon ‘loser’ with close to a quarter of a million US dollars.
A good week.

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?”

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!
