Charlie is Watching

Our Christmas Elf contest is up and running…get all the details here.

This is our elf…

2013-11-03_13-14-08_522

His name is Charlie…

Full name…Charlie Chocolate Firetruck. This is what happens when you let the kids name the Elf! (of course, mine would have been Charlie Pearl Jam Cubs Pizza)

Thank Goodness I’m Not Crazy

So, over the weekend, I caught a stomach bug…and got really sick…a few times…so, finally, when I could drink some water, I thought I had damaged my throat or something, because the water tasted like it had dirt in it (oh, I drink from the tap…I prefer the tap).

I came to work yesterday…same thing…same dirt taste. I couldn’t have been more relieved to see the news piece about the water tasting that way due to the thawing. Whew. The water seems to taste better this morning!

Britney Spears

Britney Spears’ new album “Britney Jean” is out today…my wife is excited…and to be honest, so am I…I can’t deny it any longer. For years, I said, oh, I’ll tolerate some Brit-Brit to appease my wife…but it’s true…I’m a fan. Ugh.

Her new song “Perfume”? I like it a lot. I better like it…my wife blares it anytime she has the chance!

“That’s My Boy”

This Adam Sandler movie is one of the dumbest movies I’ve ever seen…but holy cow, if it didn’t have me laughing. It’s a 1-star movie, no doubt, but you’ll enjoy it. We caught it on Starz I think.

The To-Do-List

This movie is quite good…and very funny. It’s set in the 90s, so some of my favorite parts had to be the constant 90s references/themes. It was well, well done…and Aubrey Plaza was hilarious (but my wife & I both agreed she should eat some more…she’s way too thin). Bill Hader…hilarious as always. Definitely a good Redbox!

Plus, it reminded me how much I enjoyed Tears For Fears’ “Break It Down Again”.

AWESOME is as AWESOME does!
