Not that it has truly bothered me, but Nathan, thus far, has shown zero interest in Star Wars. It's cool, really. It took him a while to develop the will to sit still for a whole movie. Given the choice between sitting down for a movie and running around and actively playing? I'll take activity any day.
Saw Logan tonight with my brother, my dad, my buddy Nate, and his buddy Brian... and a partridge in a pear tree...
Once, a lone sea star
Picked up a Gibson guitar.
And rocked. How he rocked.
We finally went and picked up our pre-order of Moana from the Disney Store today.
This conversation with Topps, the long-standing trading card company, happened yesterday. Well, more specifically, this conversation with @ToppsBUNT, their digital baseball card collecting app, happened yesterday.
One of my all-time favorite movies is the 1985 nerds-with-lasers classic Real Genius starring a then-unknown Val Kilmer in only his second acting gig after 1984's Top Secret and just prior to his breakout role as Tom "Iceman" Kazansky in Top Gun.
When I said that I knew nobody would get last week's challenge photo, I meant it. I really did just want to see what completely outlandish guesses you might have.
Have you ever woken up tired and then had two cups of dark roast coffee only to wind up more tired afterwards than you were when you started? Yeah, that's me right now.
This is a long one, buckle up.
I've said this plenty of times in the past, too many to even bother searching it out and linking all the instances here, but I love podcasts. Love, Love, Love.
The other night, I showed Katie the LEGO Snowspeeder Build video I made.
A while ago, I posted a series of TBT pics of what I basically dubbed my multiple failed attempts at youth athletics. Just not in so many words.
When I went up to Nathan's daycare to pick him up after work, I noticed that his caregiver was sitting at the kitchen table counting a big stack of singles.
As I said the other night, I just wasn't feeling the idea of doing a video with my PBR bull riding footage. Just wasn't jiving. So I'm not.
My buddy Stephen took a bite out of last week's challenge photo.
Chet Donnelly was my first exposure to Bill Paxton.
I should really be working on my February video. My plan was to finally do that bull riding video but I'm just not feeling it. Not sure I ever will.
As the father of a young son (I have told you all about him, right?), I have been introduced to a lot more children's television programming than since the time when I was my father's own young son. And my how things have changed.
As this is still the Month o' Katie, I figured I'd give her some more Throwback Thursday treatment.
Yesterday, when I said I had no idea why I signed up for Snapchat, that's not entirely true.
I joined Snapchat today.
I had one correct guess on last week's Macro Monday challenge photo. It was from Amanda Hall on Facebook [Ed. Note: Kazza got it right, too!].
A couple towns east of here lies Cantigny Park. You may recall it from the Tom Hanks film A League of Their Own as the home of Garry Marshall's character league owner Walter Harvey.
Many moons ago, I fell into a subscription to a professional magazine called Government Technology all about emerging tech for local and state governments.
Did I mention Nathan had his first dentist appointment a couple weeks ago?
As Katie declared to me last night, “This is my week! My month! Celebrate me!!” So I suppose I should take a moment to explain why…
As I stated in my Valentine's Day Haikus yesterday, Katie and I took Nathan to see the LEGO Batman Movie. We loved it!
How about some holiday haikus for Valentine's Day?
Last week's challenge photo made me hungry.
Either whiffing glue is back in fashion or they've discovered a way to make meth using Elmer's glue because I'll be damned if I can find it anywhere these days.
Sometimes I swear that Katie and I are never going to catch up on everything we have recorded on our DVR.
Nathan has gotten into superheroes in a big way. TV shows, movies, books, toys. You name it. No, it's not the only thing he's into but it has consumed a rather large part of his young life.
For the next few weeks, I'm going to feature TBTs of Katie. Why? Her birthday is coming up!!
Okay, with some minor tweaks, here it is... "Part Time POTUS" to be sung to the tune of Stevie Wonder's "Part Time Lover." Please review the video as you see fit.
If there was one silver lining to the travesty that was Atlanta bending over and giving the Super Bowl to New England, it was these beauts!
As I said when I posted the solution to last week's Macro Monday, I had no idea you could see President Lincoln within the Lincoln Memorial on the back of a modern U.S. penny. Check it out.
