It’s guess it’s time to start again…

I guess I’m back.  Maybe a year since the last entry.  I got to thinking this morning that maybe it’s time to get back on the horse, hair of the dog and all that.  Speaking of hair of the dog, mixed the little lady some ginger ale and ice.  Settle the stomach.  As far as my stomach, no need to waste the remainder, mix with a little bourbon and hit the day running. Reflecting on why we started this thing.  Healing for the...

Four Irishmen Walk into a Bar

Sunday Funday. C. Smith and I were early adopters to this idea, mostly because when we dated long distance, Sundays sucked, really really sucked. It was the day of goodbyes, of feeling sad, of wishing Monday would hurry up and arrive to distract you. No one should ever want Mondays to arrive sooner, so we vowed that when we finally lived in close proximity, Sundays would be extra fun. So now here we are 12 years later and still trying...

Cleveland!

Thursday, June 11th, 9:45 pm Game 4 of the NBA playoffs, in Cleveland, Cavs up 2-1, this is the moment I have been waiting for since LBJ left CLE.

To most people outside of NE Ohio, Cleveland is a punch line…yeah yeah we know, the river caught on fire, get over it folks, that was a long time ago and Cleveland had come a long way. I adore...

By recent, I mean 8 months ago – stupid procrastination. So I sat down the other day and got to work, and was quickly brought back to one of the most amazing places I...

A special message from Derek Hough

Hey, Jennifer.  Since you won’t accept my friend request, I had to use your cool website to wish you a Happy Birthday! I don’t really know how old you are, but from what I saw at the Spring Spectacular, I’m thinking about 35.  Well, so long, I have to get back to gelling my hair.  I hope you have a wonderful birthday. Oh, by the way, thank Clayton for the dance...

“Look everyone, it’s a beer crawl!”

“Look everyone, it’s a beer crawl!”

What life could bring on day drinking wrapped around a semi organized craft beer tour of South End Charlotte NC.  Is it the calm that permeates during a sunny afternoon booze versus the electric desperation of hazy midnight vodka? The thing is, people have discovered these craft breweries.  The secret’s out.  Two deep at the bar with the sun shining holds more promise than two deep in shadows tightly packed between well dressed...
