How about some Holiday Snippets to herald in your Thanksgiving?
During my sophomore year of high school in 1990-91, I was very impressionable with regard to music. I had my favorites, don’t get me wrong, but it was a time of great discovery for me. Everywhere I looked, there was rock, metal, grunge, alternative, electronic, funk, synth-pop, rap, blues, Motown... I listened to it all.
A handful of people got last week’s Macro Monday challenge photo correct. It certainly got your gears spinning, though, didn’t it?
Trying to make heads or tails of all the options available with health insurance and then properly completing the forms be like...
Remember the good ol’ days when Netflix was the only streaming provider in town? If it wasn’t on Netflix, it wasn’t anywhere! Especially since Netflix killed all bricks-and-mortar video rental stores.
I’m so accustomed to the days of companies only caring about gaining new customers instead of trying to keep existing ones that when a really good deal comes from a company, I tend to think it’s for new customers only.
Just a little more than a week ago marked the eight-year anniversary since my brother and I graduated from the Fire Academy.
Someone tell me there’s some reason behind this. Some handout that everyone received and I just missed the official announcement.

Obviously I hope you like The Last Jedi. But man now I REALLY hope you like The Last Jedi.— Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) November 9, 2017
A coworker shared this with me today. Immediately after seeing it, I said, “That would be so awesome if it were real!” His response? “It IS real!!”

This was tweeted by our POTUS yesterday at 3:12 p.m.
Last week’s challenge photo was soooo macro. Well, as macro as my non-professional iPhone macro lens will let me get, anyway.
C’mon, YouTube and U-verse! You’re killin’ me! I know this video is just a hair over four minutes but it can’t really take that long.
It really sucks because I have three partial videos sitting in iMovie waiting to be completed. Just an editorial decision or two and then some finishing touches.
Have you seen Thor: Ragnarok yet? No? Why not? Because it only came out today? Well that’s no excuse! No excuse at all!! Even Katie and I ventured out on opening day for it! And if we can, so can you!
