Santa’s Stereo

Ladies and Gentlemen. I must warn you, I’ve been drinking. That may mean that I slur from time to time or use questionable grammar. I hope to edit this in the morning but if I don’t, this is your trigger warning. There came time I was supposed to stop believing in Santa Claus because that’s […] Read more

Fun On The Cheap: Paper + Pen + Cat + Camera

Oh for cryin’ out loud, it’s another cat article. I can’t help it. If the Dog Whisperer can have a weekly television show about calmly convincing dogs to stop pooping in their humans’ shoes, I ought to be able to write a cat article every few months. A few weeks ago, I read a Kotaku […] Read more

Kid tested… Teenager Approved

One of my favorite things to do is play with cake. Play with flavors, textures, frosting, fillings, you name it, I want to play with it. For me, my kitchen is my toy. It is the ultimate playground. My children have also picked up on my love of the kitchen and now want a little […] Read more

How many oceans are there? WRONG!

My twins came home today proud of their performance on a test of continents and oceans. They said they got all seven continents and five oceans correct. “Four oceans,” I said possessing a college degree. “No, Daddy. Five oceans.” They said being seven-year-olds. “The Atlantic Ocean. The Pacific Ocean. The Indian Ocean. The Arctic Ocean […] Read more

A Good Old-Fashioned Christmas Rant

Pffft. Kids today, with their laser monsters and their Minecraft boxes and their Real Housewives dolls with interchangeable martini hands and f-bomb voice boxes, am I right? I walked into a Toys “R” Us last week, just for kicks, and you know what I found? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that look like they’ve been injecting […] Read more

Hanukkah Bush

Dad never let us have a Tree. It’s not that he was religious. We didn’t go to temple or anything like that. I think it was his way of keeping us close to our roots. Even though we knew what the answer would be, every year my sister and I would continue to ask for […] Read more

If you’re still trying to think of a cool Christmas gift for the little techie on your shopping list, here are a few suggestions:           LittleBits I remember spending countless hours with my “160 in one” electronic circuit kit from Radio Shack. Thankfully, these kinds of kits have become less about […] Read more

TOYS! Wonder Woman Shield

What happened was, a few months ago my daughter’s little friend across the street got some Ninja Turtle stuff for his birthday. Among other gear, he received two foam swords and some masks. When Spawn went over to play, she was handed a sword and a mask and told to get ready. Within a few […] Read more

Cyber Monday Is Now Officially Dumb

Man, I loved me some Cyber Monday deals back in 2007. Since then? Meh. There are definitely deals to be had on this newly christened holiday… just like the online deals the day before… and the week before… and the month before. Sorry Cyber Monday, you are no longer cool and here are a few […] Read more

A Week Ago In A Galaxy One, One State Away…

If you are nerd-type person, then there is an excellent chance you have a collection of a lot of stuff from a favorite thing, like a comic or a video game or a movie series. If it is a massive collection of sports memorabilia, you might actually be a jock-type person, but who am I […] Read more

Tater Cakes

So the holiday is over, the family has all left town, your house is a mess, and you are now stuck with a ton of leftover Thanksgiving food. I know you’ve probably eaten enough turkey sandwiches to make you puke, so today I am not here to give you new turkey ideas… turkey enchilada’s… just saying, […] Read more
