Obligatory Earth Day Message

Happy Earth Day. I’m not much of an environmentalist but I’m slowly becoming a plastic bag usage nazi. I have canvas bags in my car and use them for my grocery shopping everywhere, and I refuse to take any plastic bags whenever I can carry my own loot out of the store…which was met with a LOT of  “Are you sure?” Yes I AM sure I can carry my prescription and a bottle of Nyquil out on my own.

TGI-frakkin’-F!

Oh yeah. Friday was a HELL of a day. It actually started Thursday night. Thursday night We had dinner and sampled ridiculous variety of beer with Paul and Lupe at Beachwood Barbecue.

This too shall stick

If I haven’t been able to get this song out of my head since I’ve seen it on The Graham Norton Show Christmas Special, you shouldn’t be able to either. Here. Have yourself some Tim Minchin. ETA: Brandon sent this to me from Explosm.net after my attempts to get the song above out of my head all day yesterday.  True dat!...
