captain awesome and other randomness

-11 days until Christmas.  get busy being peaceful.  or be peaceful about being busy.  whichever.  just make sure you're not being naughty. 

-does anyone else love the geico commercial with the pig saying wee wee all the way home?  i love that one. 

-the steelers play the bengals this week.  did you know that the bengals haven't won a game since september 26th?  that's like 2.5 months ago!  i was going to do a whole post about the things that have happened since september 26th, but i didn't have the mental energy to compile them.  halloween, elections, thanksgiving, blah blah blah...the bengals are bad.  that being said, the steelers could very easily lose this game sunday.  do you hear that, steelers?  i'm looking at you.  stay focused.  make up for that mess against the bengals at heinz field last year.  which i attended.  thanks for that, by the way.  i will forgive you a little if you beat the bungles this week.  get it done.

-in the category of the funniest news i've heard all week, this guy officially changed his name this week.  you know what he changed it to?  "Captain Awesome."  that is incredible.  what an amazing world we live in. 

-the pittsburgh penguins have won 11 games in a row.  how sweet is that? 

-quick interview of caedmon:
q:  why do we celebrate christmas?
a:  cause it's almost christmastime!

q:  where was Jesus born?
a:  in a wedding. 

q:  what are you buying jack for christmas?

q:  where does santa claus live?
a:  downtown.

q:  what are the reindeers names?
a:  i only know dudolph (pronouced dude-olph).  the reindeer are wearing running shoes right now.  (don't ask me where that came from!)

-anyone watch the office last night?  very good.  made me realize how much i'm going to miss michael scott when he's gone. 

-hope everyone has a great december weekend.

okay, I know you and Bill just type quickly, but please tell me that eleven days until Christmas is a typo and my math isn't that bad???

I haven't watched the Office yet, it's on the dvr... we watched Glee

The Office was fantastic. Who do you think (or do you know?) is going to replace Michael? My guess is Darryl.

I've been busy. I am done! Finished with Christmas prep. Finally.

State College to Birmingham

 as some of you know, i have been working towards a goal i set at the beginning of 2020 of running 1000 miles in one calendar year.  today is the last day of september (what?!?), and so that means the year is 3/4 of the way complete, which means i should be right around the 750 mile marker.  however, i am doing better than that, as my 5 mile run today put me at 847 miles for the year, almost 100 miles ahead of schedule!  i am feeling great, enjoying the journey, and experiencing a real sense of accomplishment as i work towards this goal.   i have also enjoyed these little milestones along the way, just to see how far i've come.  as it turns out, 847 miles from State College (along the roads, not as the crow flies) would have me arriving in Birmingham, AL, right about now!  not too shabby!  only about 150 to go!

bad haircuts (for a laugh)

everybody needs to laugh.  one good way i have found to make that happen is to do a simple google image search for 'bad haircut.'  when you do so, some of the following gems show up.  thankfully, my 9th grade school picture does NOT show up.  otherwise, it would certianly make this list!  please laugh freely and without inhibition.  thank you and have a nice day. 

happy mother's day 2020

twelve years ago i started making a video of our children as a mother's day tribute to their mother, and somehow it became a tradition.  back then, our oldest son was 3 years old, and cute.  now he's 15 and, well, not so cute .  however, we have really come to love this tradition, and the time capsule of sorts that it has become.  we love looking back at each year's video, to see how we've grown and changed, and how our love for Shannon has remained constant. below is this year's video, and if you want to walk with us down memory lane, the other eleven are down there as well.  happy mother's day to all the mom's out make us feel like a million bucks. 2020 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
