It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Q: What was Mr. Rogers' first name?

A: Fred!



The man could wear cable sweaters with the best of 'em.

What is...

Watching "Jeopardy!"makes me appreciate the normalcy that is my life.

These contestants know waaaaay too much useful information. I, on the other hand, know plenty of useless information and it has gotten me this far.

Ain't no stopping me now.

CAN you dig it?

Growing up with a father in the packaging business, I've always been one to notice the latest and greatest. Please note: what you are about to see is unfailingly an idea you will wish you had thought of (but you didn't) and one you wished you invented (and you couldn't).

Now introducing:
The world's first resealable can!

It's about time! I'm tired of leaving my pop or beer around, only to have it go from fresh to flat in zero to eleven minutes. Fret no more - you can close your can and save it for later. Although if you are saving the beer for later, then I have to ask: why wait?

Digital, Digital Get-Up

I wish that I had a digital version of my closet - where I could piece together different articles of clothing to "yah" or "nay" them. I always forget what clothes I have because they are buried in a drawer somewhere or hung up on a hanger with five other shirts.

A digital closet, on the other hand, would be totally helpful.

Come to think of it: if I had the time to take a picture of every piece of apparel I owned, it probably wouldn't be that difficult.

Luckily, I don't have that much time on my hands so I'll just continue wearing the same things over and over until that special day I discover that shirt I bought three years and simply "had to have."

We Want The Funk

I always bring funk like this...

Who's she? ...I never know.


If you don't understand this, lame on, lame-oid.

Thanks, K, for sending. Amazingly great.

Totally serious.



And I'm not even kidding.

Diamonds are a girl's best friend

Baseball diamonds that is.

Please enjoy this play by play from the FIRST BASEBALL GAME EVER.



And I was kidding about above. REAL diamonds are a girl's best friend. Shine on.

Turn the world on with your smile


I was just thinking how strange it would be if our teeth weren't white. Wouldn't it be odd to have green teeth or fuschia?

We'd have to throw out the phrase "pearly whites" and insert "organic greens" or something.

Ew. That's actually pretty gross.

Live long with the good life

Life is too short...

...to wear clothes you don't like or regret putting on in the first place.
...to eat food that causes you to make a disgusted face and say "gross" outloud.
...to drink bad coffee.
...to listen to music that doesn't make your heart happy.
...to complain about the little things that are out of your control.
...to not try something that freaks you out so much you can't understand why you are doing it. (Just do it)
...to not embrace awkwardness and uneasy moments.
...to slouch.
...to spend time with people who don't make you better.



(Two examples who make me better)

Wiig-ing out.

SNL has revived itself...in the form of Kristin Wiig:


Through six degrees of separation, I've known who she is for a few years and when she got started on "Saturday Night Live." I've always found her hilarious and now she's coming into her own (which I totally love).

I'm like a proud mom.

Mr. Clean

It's ironic to me that showers can get dirty.

I don't understand.

Barack n' roll

Thanks to my friend, J, I am now obsessed with this video (which says a lot because I try to stay away from all things "political"):



At least it's a good life lesson to learn...never giving up...

Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun

I love themed-out office e-mails:

There once was a witch at Summit
Whose head was an empty bucket
It sure would be dandy
If you'd help fill it with candy
Otherwise, look out for her broom
You may have to duck it

Actual content in a just received e-mail.

We also have a witch sitting up at the front desk that, when prompted, sings, "Ghouls just wanna have fuuu-unnn."

Is this heaven?
