Gillian vs chicken wings

I don't think she's quite ready for a hot wings challenge.

Hope

Many have already seen this - it has over 6 million views on the YouTube channel it was originally posted on and who knows how many other million views through links and other outlets.  It is a video blog from a young man named Ben Breedlove who passed away at age 18 on Christmas Day of 2011.   This particular video has an introduction by Glenn Beck (STFU and get off my webpage if you have any snarky partisan comments to make) because he makes some very good points about other media sites editing this or removing references to God.  It is stories like Ben's that do indeed give comfort and peace as we ponder questions we cannot possibly know the answers to.  Questions about our own mortality and what comes next.  Rest in peace Ben.

Looking forward to the day when this isn't filed under "it's funny because it's true"

Getting a little twitchy waiting for baseball season to arrive so we can get this rebuilding process rolling.

I'm a Muppet of a man

Holden and I saw "The Muppets" at the movie theater on November 25th at 4:20 p.m.  Since then I can probably count on one hand the number of times he and I have been in the van together when we haven't had this song playing.  There had better be an Oscar coming its way or the boy and I are going to be very upset.

It's a Monsters Inc kind of day

I won't lie and say I'm not a little jealous that Monsters Inc PJs aren't made in my size.
Yes I am rocking the crap out of these Monsters Inc jammies.
