I Did It

June 13, 2009

I joined. I joined Twitter even though I said I never would. And now I’m embracing the dark side and I kinda love it.

Follow me here super quick. Because I’m pretty sure that this is going to be the best thing to happen to either of us.

I’m excited to go on this adventure with you guys. I think it will really be bonding for us.

Best. Present. Ever.

I’ve never had as much difficulty shopping for someone as I do when I shop for my father. He never wants anything. Or if he does, he asks for socks or golf balls. But a man only needs so many socks on this planet before he has to look for other uses, like puppetry or…”personal” rags.

You know. I wasn’t even going to that gross, awful place until I wrote this post. I blame you guys.

So to show Dad that I love him more than socks and golf balls, I’m thinking of getting him a kickass, wall-mounted, dead squirrel.


The website says that the taxidermist can “mount any squirrel in just about any position or style” with “vintage items”, which almost sounds like a dare to me. Like he’s positioning himself as the Michelangelo of squirrel carcass posing, and he’s just waiting for his own Sistine Chapel to come along. Because I could totally come up with some crazy themed positions for a dead squirrel that would be like, the artistic challenge of a lifetime for this guy.

But this isn’t about me and my goals. It’s Father’s Day 2K9.

So a golfing squirrel with a little bag and goofy hat and polo shirt would be awesome, right? And you know that the dad who receives a taxidermy themed gift for Father’s Day is going to remember that day for the rest of his life.

So yeah. Welcome to the best gift idea since they came out with greeting cards that have cash holders built into them. Rick’s Custom Squirrels is your new passion.

So Eloquent

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Jon Armstrong has been interviewing his dog, Chuck, on various political topics. And I love it.

But what I’m really excited to see are the videos of Chuck caught in compromising situations, like smoking weed or gallivanting around gay bars. Wiggle your way out of that, smooth talker.

WTF Is This?

If anyone wants to caption this slash let me know what the hell is going on, I’d love you forever.

This Blows My Mind

June 4, 2009

So the woman who created this [ps I’m obsessed with you now, Avoidant Consumer aka Sarah] had this on her blog. The guy from The Rotten Tomatoes Show on current is John Krasinski’s twin!


Do you know what this means?!

My chances have doubled.

Okay, Just One More Music Video

June 4, 2009

This week.

You’ve probably already seen this or remakes, but I don’t care, because it’s amazing. We’ve actually been dancing to this at work while at our desks. Some have even said they’re going to dance all up on the printer table.

I dare you.

Isn’t it great? Don’t you just want to 80’s dance right now?

I do.

This Just Makes Me Happy

If this video doesn’t make you smile or tap your foot than I think we need to take a deeper dive into why you are failing as a person.

Any excuse to fist bump everyone that enters my life today is a good excuse. Thanks, Obama!
