You Are Welcome Pa Rum Pa Pum Pum

What do you get when you mix my favorite Christmas Carol,  $ .89, a wizard and a metal guitar?   Little Drummer Boy – Christopher Lee Oh, hells yes. Actually, I recommend you spend the $1.78 and get the “Silent Night” too. I did. My decision was a sound one. My only regret is that […]

With the Lights Out It’s Less Dangerous

Claudia has decided what she wants to be for Halloween. She is seven years old. What on earth have I created? I will take partial credit. The Goon Squad’s birth announcement featured a picture of the twins wearing Misfit’s onesies. Then there was this. Then I praised her when she wanted these. But none of […]

My At-Bat Song

Do you have your walk-up song picked out? You know, the song that they would play for you when you come up to bat? Sports fans are nodding their heads and hitting the comment button. For the rest of you, think of them playing “Wild Thing” for Charlie Sheen in “Major League” when he came […]

The Duran Duran Show (before)

I’ve been so busy spazzing out about going to see Duran Duran and buying plane tickets and being excited about seeing Erin and Aaron (and Suebob. BONUS!)  that I didn’t even realize how cool this show was really going to be. First of all, I get to sit in a VIP blogger area back stage […]

My Lifehack

Laurie says I should start saying more positive things about myself here on the blog. I guess she wouldn’t want me to tell you that I just mistyped both the word positive and the word things. See also: mistyped. Oh, the irony! Thank you spellcheck. I know I trash talk myself a lot here, but […]

I Still Might Be That Guy. I Haven’t Decided Yet.

I was going to write a really short post. It was going to say simply “Gabe says that you can’t wear a concert shirt to a show where that same band is playing. Discuss.” But things are never that simple. First of all, I called Gabe at work to ask him if I could tell […]

Accepting That I Might Not Be The Most Metal in My Family

It is an issue that has long been debated in my household – who is the most metal member of our family? This question generally results in a four way tie since we all invariably vote for ourselves. Hmph. Each family member has their own reasons and as much as my friend White assures me […]

They Call Me “The Mythbuster”

I just stood in my kitchen and watched a pot of water boil. I watched it happen. They say you can’t, but I can. Maybe you can’t, but I can. I CAN DO ANYTHING! You can’t stop me. It was amazing. (They don’t really call me The Myth Buster. They call me “The Boiler”.)

Honing My Psychic Meteorology Skills

Two days ago I said to Devra “My cats are acting crazy. I think we are going to have an earthquake or something.” Then I left town. This morning I awoke to the sound of a text message. It was my neighbor wondering if I felt the earthquake. Since I am in San Francisco I […]

Shopping for Sparklecorn

I’ve been shopping for the MamaPop Sparklecorn party at BlogHer this year. Now I just have one question. What goes with these shoes? (thanks to Flutter for leading me to the website where I bought these) ps – These shoes are 100% vegan. Weird, huh. pps – I hope I can walk in them. ppps […]

If You Want Free Bon Jovi Tickets Raise Your Hands

Psst. We’re giving away three pairs of Bon Jovi tickets on MamaPop. Plus I posted a picture of Jon Bon Jovi practically naked over there, so what are you waiting for? I totally used to have this exact poster on my wall. Alas, I’ve said too much. Go win tickets. * * * * * […]

The One Where I Send You Away (but only for a second)

I don’t mean to brag, but I have assembled a team of the funniest freaking sports bloggers over at Draft Day Suit and I am as proud as I can be. Even if you don’t like sports, this site will crack you up. Please do yourself (and me) a favor and go check it out.
