While I was personally reminded of unhatched Gremlin or Alien Xenomorph eggs, last week's challenge photo was actually broccoli.
Before Christmas last year, Katie and I had implemented the good ol' "Why don't you put it on your Christmas list?" method when he wanted something we didn't feel like buying. It actually made him happy to hear that we weren't completely shooting him down and it kept our bank account from revolting against us. And, a vast majority of the time, he'd forget what he wanted anyway so win-win!
The other day, I was watching season 1, episode 7 of Stranger Things when a quote from one of the characters caught my attention.
Check it out, folks!
This is another one of those Throwback Thursdays that's not an old photo so much as a new photo of an old object.
Meet Brittany and Tiffany. They are twin sisters and students at a high school about five miles from where Katie, Nathan, and I live. We didn't know them personally, but yesterday was their birthday. They would have turned 17 years old.
Yes, the Pitchfork Music Festival 2017 roster has been announced and, to me anyway, it seems a bit underwhelming.
As stated everywhere, I'm really disappointed in @lesombre for not taking a guess at this Macro Monday challenge photo. Why?
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?
