Why I post Selfies

Posted on November 4, 2013

A few weeks back I was christened by one of my “friends” as the King of Selfies. As I have virtually no ability to discern sarcasm I am very grateful for this honor. I’m thinking some of you may think my abundance of selfies may be gratuitous/juvenile/self-serving. So I wanted to take a moment and tell you the (very good) reason I choose to post selfies. For those of you lucky enough to have thus far avoided my FaceBook page, here is a ...

I am skepti-cool

Posted on September 25, 2013

This blog is definitely not in the vein of my normal posts but it does shed light on the inner workings of my brain when I am not entirely consumed by the human digestive system. I recently had a brief engagement regarding the subject of this blog and was politely told I should “read a book”. After a burning through the Twilight series and Dr. Seuss’ Hop on Pop, it appears my opinions haven’t changed much. Part of my reticence to post on ...

Happy Birthdizzle to me!

Posted on September 13, 2013

I was humbly overwhelmed by the many wishes for a happy birthday that were sent from all of my friends. With so many people counting on me to have a good day it felt shallow to just respond with a "I had a great day". How in the world would you know if that was true or not? You wouldn't!! So I have decided to provide you with evidence that, per your wishes, my birthday was indeed happy. For those of you who HADN'T wished me happy birthday, I ...

Sweet, sweet, sweet victory…yeah

Posted on October 2, 2012

I know it has been a while since my last post and for that I apologize. However, the last three months have been pretty busy and I have had very little downtime. This has been in large part a result of my commitment to completing the P90X workout program. In fact, it has consumed so much of my free time I have barely had enough time to finish season 6 of Dexter, watch The Reluctant Hero - Don Knott’s quartet of movies, and still fit in my ...

No Pain, No Gain – Part 2

Posted on July 16, 2012

My intent to blog each day of my exercise journey hasn’t turned out as practical as I would have liked. I had originally planned to post another recap after Day 3 of my exercise journey. However, I am nearly a week late for reasons you will soon see. Day 2 I woke up on Day 2 of my exercise adventure paralyzed with soreness. I figured I would be able to get through the day though as long as I didn’t need to use the lower two-thirds of ...

An abundance of bad lyrics are making both my ears itch

Posted on April 29, 2011

I think we can all agree that our culture is in a precipitous decline (with the obvious notable exception of Conan O’ Brien…he is AWESOME). Reality shows about egotistical, over tanned, pompous northeasterners rule the airwaves (take your pick between the Apprentice and Jersey Shore) and stuff like this passes for “art”: as does this: (For those of you less than thirty-five, that picture is of Art Garfunkel who is famous ...

I've recently  joined the 21st century by purchasing a sweet electronic device. And I am not talking about an electric can opener. No, I got a "smart phone" as the young whippersnappers say nowadays. The iPhone 4 to be exact. This sweet little device has completely transformed my life*. (*by "my life" I mean the way I place and receive phone calls and periodically check email) Despite the many benefits of owning an iPhone, I was initially ...

Using music to supplement parental instruction

Posted on June 26, 2010

While I consider myself fairly knowledgeable about pop culture (Kirstie Alley's weight is currently down and Spencer and Heidi are unfortunately separating...who saw that one coming?!) there are a few fads that I have been late to jump on: the cellular phone and Justin Bieber being two notable examples. Well, tonight marks the night that I engage myself in another fad. Yes, I am talking about the fad involving dance-y songs sung by a colorfully ...

El Guero Canelo Review

Posted on April 5, 2010

I’ve spent every year of my life living in or around Tucson. As such, I consider myself somewhat of a local expert. For example, looking for a good burger? I know exactly where the best local In-N-Out is. Pizza more your thing? I am a veritable catalog of Pizza Hut locations. When it comes to Mexican food however, there is one local eatery that stands cabeza y hombres above the rest. That restaurant is El Guero Canelo (translation: The ...

Birthing Pains (in the butt)

Posted on May 6, 2009

As most of you are aware, Karina and I are expecting baby number 3 at any moment. Alyson Grace is 39 weeks old and already displaying some personality traits similar to her mother’s, namely the stubbornness as she refuses to  vacate Karina’s womb. (Note to self: Karina would probably not like that last sentence, remember to change Karina to “a mule”, but definitely do not leave BOTH in). For some reason Karina is finding having a 10 ...
