Since my speaking schedule has slowed down for the holidays, I’m spending most of December in California visiting family, friends, and my girlfriend (who relocated to San Diego in June). I recognized that while I did better this year, my fall fitness was once again lacking–it remains tough to do with the hotel gym schedule […]
Just over a week ago, before my speaking engagement in New York, I had the chance to see a good friend of mine present the Advent Conspiracy to his church. Wait–did I just say “church” and Advent “Conspiracy?” Yes, I did. Keep on reading, even if you are one of my many non-Christian readers. And […]
My belly is super full from a great Thanksgiving spent with my girlfriend’s family. I hope you enjoyed your feast as well. As you digest your food, check out some of my blog entries from the past two weeks (travel kept me away from posting last Friday), and some WONDERFUL entries from other authors. On […]
I’m a big fan of the television show, Community. I’ll admit I waited to hear the buzz from season 1 before I started viewing the DVDs and watching season 2 in real time, but I’m so glad that I did. I don’t think there is anything else like it on TV. It’s consistently creative in […]
So I just finished my last business trip of the year and also requalified for my 1K status on United in the process. This year was unique as I qualified via segments (over 120 flights) and miles (over 100,000) flown since January. For me, it’s a good thing as my higher status on the airline […]
The latest Marcel the Shell with Shoes On video was just released on YouTube. The first video received a great deal of acclaim and was even a selection at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. I loved the¬†first video, watching it more times than I could count. The second is also wonderful, but it’s the last […]
I just spent a great weekend in New York City with my girlfriend. The weather was perfect, changing leaves still clung to trees, and we had a really great time. In addition to seeing a Broadway show, doing some shopping, and eating at an amazing NYC restaurant (where my girlfriend’s brother happens to be the […]
Yep, it’s the awesome date–I even wrote a blog about it this week (check it out if you missed it). I’m currently sitting in the Newark Airport awaiting a pretty awesome birthday weekend (if you include Monday) celebration in New York City. Last year’s birthday was not the best (as evidenced by the lack of […]
So my friend Derek posted this great link encouraging people to make 11/11/11 Nigel Tufnel Day. I recognize that many if not most my readers are unfamiliar with Tufnel as featured in the brilliant mockumentary, This is Spinal Tap. The film is awesome. Watch it. The famous scene: Nigel Tufnel: “The numbers all go to […]
I was killing time at the airport the other day, and I did something I haven’t really ever done. I went to the start of a text message conversation. Yep, I went back almost a year ago to the first few texts that my now girlfriend and I sent to each other. It’s funny to […]
