Silly Holiday Poem

In honor of us turning (violently and without enough warning!) into December, I wrote a silly poem to remind everyone of why we do this to ourselves every year: it’s not about the presents, the food, the decorating, or the hub-bub that we go through to get everything together. We do this for our families.…

Work + Halloween = Silly Poetry

Since Halloween falls during the work week, my office has decided to host a department-wide potluck to celebrate the ghouls and goblins and their day of play. To announce the potluck to the staff, I decided to do a play off of Twas the Night Before Christmas and get a few giggles from my team.…

Bruno Mars in Concert!

Had to share this awesome photo of Bruno Mars and his band from last night. Doesn’t this picture just look like it’s straight out of the 70s? I love it. My fanhood (is that a word?) has increased tenfold for Bruno after last night’s concert in Orlando. He was energetic, talented, and put on one…
