Hit the road Jack… err, uhm… Dave.

We hit the road again. Back out in the wild to ravage another water park. This first day certainly has been “fun”. Today, was mostly a prep day for tomorrow and some future trips. It’s a long and complicated story, and I don’t want to throw anyone under a bus today, so I’ll be vague....

Do you still Xanga? I’m going to start again.

I had a nice little trip down memory lane with Rosemary during a conversation we recently had about our old blogs. Back in the day, which was someday back in 2005, my crush (Rosemary, for clarity) introduced me to Xanga. I took to it rather quickly and used it mostly as a precursor to Twitter....

A Dad thing I can relate to.

These guys put my own lyrical changes that I usually come up with while driving to shame. All that I’ve been able to change while Frozen is playing in the back seat of the car is during the song “Love is an open door”. Our mental synchronization, Can have but one explanation I’ll change to...

Take me out to the ballgame…

I simply had to commemorate this occasion. It’s not everyday that I get to take the family out to the world’s greatest ballpark. When we go however, we do it in style. Rosemary donned her “Respect Wrigley” shirt and plaid Cubs hat. I wore my 100 Anniversary Game throwback Federals jersey, and my Cooperstown hat....

A trip down the Vine timeline

  A Vine from almost a year ago and it still make me laugh every time I hear it. It’s the smile at the end that gets me. If you want to see more of my Vines and the one’s I like, you can follow me here....

The Wrigley Field Experience

I’ve been pretty blessed to live around the Chicago area for my whole life. I am also a lot luckier to have been born and raised a Cubs fan. If you’ve been to Wrigley Field before, you know that magical feeling of walking up the steps or ramp to view the field for the first...

Hi, I’m David and I’m a flapaholic.

I need my flapahol. If you are like me and have it on your phone, good for you. Sell it on eBay for $3,000. If you are unlucky enough not to have it I’ve got good news for you. Since you can’t download it via iOS anymore, just simply go here. You’re welcome.  ...

New York, New York 2013

The yearly work trip to Manhattan’s Chelsea Market usually begins with myself taking in some of the city the night before all our meetings and year-end festivities kick off. This year I gathered an extra day before the meetings, so I was able to see even more of the midtown madness. This post is simply...

Why Fall is quickly becoming my favorite season

I just wish we had bought our condo on this side of the complex to enjoy this spectacular view, rather than the glorious parking lot. Moreover, a nice house with a backyard leading to this view would be even better. Hey, something to shoot for in the next 2-3 years....

Bert and Ernie

Admittedly, I never really watched Sesame Street while growing up. The handful of times I did watch, I felt like there was way too much character development that I had already missed out on and therefore, never really wanted to spend my precious summer mornings inside catching up on the season. That said, now I...

FREEBIE: Gangnam Style Facebook Cover

Are you as obsessed as we are with Gangnam Style? I know our son loves to dance his little booty off to the beat, so we hear it at least three times on a daily basis. If you love it and want to show off your knowledge of memes, grab yourself a free Gangnam Style...

Just another normal trip to the grocery store

Ran out to K-Mart to pick up some last minute essentials. Turns out I saved $23 on this haul. True story. The jerky wasn’t for me, it’s actually for a gathering my brother is hosting. I just figured that this wasn’t quite the common thing that I normally see in the shopping cart. This is...
