When Nathan invited Katie to watch TV with him in his bedroom, I was told to hang out as his bed isn’t really big enough for all three of us.

And, just like that, half the year is gone in a flash! Damn.
Back in January, Kevin Spencer reported to me that the comment form for my blog wouldn't render on his mobile device. He couldn't even leave a comment.
45 years ago today saw the release of one of my favorite films of all time. One of those movies that truly affected my life, be it for better or for worse.
Yes, Apple TV+, I will watch Greyhound when it comes out on July 10! Really, I promise! Hey, it’s Tom Hanks, Elisabeth Shue, WWII, and submarines. How could I not watch it??
A little more than nine years ago, my brother took part in a Warrior Dash race. In case you’re not familiar with it, it’s a 5K obstacle race through mud and flames.
I need your opinion.
Take a look at the links under my headshot in the right column (bottom of the page if you're looking at this on mobile)...
Correct: "For all intents and purposes."
Incorrect: "For all intensive purposes."
While it was another slim week in terms of guesses, we did get a winner! And that winner was my friend Eric R. who I had hoped would get this right if for no other reason than he’s the guy that gave me the tape in question.
Nathan is a YouTube junkie. How he discovered it, I'm not sure. But he's there and he's really good at navigating around and finding something to watch.
I need two cans of the Pamplemousse LaCroix... I need that filled with Johnnie Walker Blue and CBD oil.
One thing I hate doing that I’ve only done on rare occasion is to unfollow or mute or otherwise hide a person from my timeline on social media. Usually l can tolerate stupidity for a short time knowing that this too shall pass. Well, it wasn’t happening with a certain somebody and their conservative ranting peaked today and resulted in me muting this person from my timeline. I didn’t go so far as to unfollow them. Not yet, anyway. We’ll see what happens when November passes. Assuming things go my way, that is.
Seeing that the three of us would be on a cruise right now had COVID-19 not happened, howsabout I torture myself with some photos from the last time we were on a cruise 6.5 years ago...
I'm fairly certain my son doesn't trust me. Not one iota.
Given the plethora of free entertainment that's been made available during this pandemic, it's shocking how little of it I've taken part in. Even the live music that everyone and their mother is streaming.
My attempt to thwart gaming my game only thwarted attempts at guessing the correct album. No guesses! And it was Prince!
I’ve had a hit or miss relationship with home automation technology. I loved and then hated our WiFi outlets, I love our Nest camera/doorbell, I love our Nest thermostat, I worship our Roomba vacuum, I could care less about our Echo voice assistants.
A dozen Fresh Donuts for breakfast that, upon recounting, turned out to be a baker’s dozen (we only ate half).
I realized something the other day... I need to buy new underwear. Not just to replace one or two pairs. Like, most of them. They’re ancient. Ugh. I hate shopping for underwear. It’s the worst.
First off, yes, I was able to successfully charge my iPod Shuffle. Based on the first 10 or so tracks, I was really digging on Beck when I last synced it up.
While digging around for a backup lightning charging cable to use in the kitchen, I found something unexpected.
I know most of you have, at the very least, heard of the band Rage Against the Machine. They were a heavy metal/rap-rock band that started in the early 1990s and are very well known for their highly politicized songwriting. They are, IMHO, the guitar-driven equivalent of my beloved Public Enemy, although Megadeth is up there as well.
When Steve B nailed #MiniMusicMonday again, I started to suspect something may be up.
Since we, as a full family, are now through the eight-film Harry Potter series and have even watched them each at least 2-3 times, I think it's safe to go ahead and do my rankings! This should, in all honesty, be a pretty easy one to rank and likely won't ever see any updates. Oh, except for when I get around to watching the Fantastic Beasts films. Okay, one update.
Got this in my inbox this afternoon much to my surprise...
On the negative side of today, Netflix’s Space Force was, um, strange to say the very least. Some of the driest humor to come from Greg Daniels ever.
Currently, Nathan’s iPad and all his apps are registered in my name. At first, the reason for this was simplicity. It was just so much easier to get everything signed up and initialized by not creating new accounts from scratch.
Kids can be such little assholes.
What a month. What a helluva month. I wish I could say, "Thank God it's over," but I have zero assurance that June will be any better. So... goals, then?
I swear it wasn’t planned. How could I? I knew nothing of the shitstorm that would rain on the world in the days after I posted last week’s #MiniMusicMonday challenge photo. It’s a complete coincidence that I chose...
