Would you like a little rock in your whiskey?

24 Jan

Another of my late (but awesome) Christmas presents from my parents was a set of Whiskey Stones. What are Whiskey Stones? They are rocks that you put in your whiskey of course!

Rocks in my Whiskey

So the idea is simple, ice is made out of water and water is watery and watery things will water down your precious Whiskey! So instead you take polished stones and put them in your freezer. They will then keep your Whiskey chilled while you sip it, but will not water down your precious alcohol.

My Jack Daniels is chillin!

Yesterday I took the opportunity to try out the stones and sure enough I was sipping my Jack Daniels in style. Plus I get to say I have rocks in my Whiskey!

Back from the dead!

Not really… I didn’t die, but I did let my blog die. Life has been super busy! I still have the beautiful JC in my life! Can you believe she has put up with me for over two and a half years?

I started officiating high school football this fall with the Central Florida Officials Association which was a blast! Maybe a post on that later?

Just recently I started brewing my own beer! Thanks to the Brooklyn Brew Shop I got a home brew starter kit that is the perfect size for my apartment. Brews up only one gallon at a time, but it is a start. Maybe more on that later!

I’m also blogging from my phone for the first time ever, sound if something is wrong blame that!

I am not sure if anyone still has me in their feed, but if you do, hello again!

Mainly by searching the web (which I do all the time anyways) I have been given over $100 in just over two years! WOW!! I just figured out that total and man am I impressed!

There are other ways to earn SwagBucks, like the toolbar. Yes, the toolbar gives you 1 buck everyday, just for having it.

Dwight Howard and Slim Chin (Ken Jeong) making me laugh my ass off!

Side note…is Ken Jeong not one of the funniest dudes around right now?? I know everyone saw him in The Hangover. But he was also in Knocked Up, Role Models, Couples Retreat (probably the funniest part of that whole movie) and Pineapple Express not to mention his HILARIOUS role of Senior Chang on Community (GREAT show).

Lonely Avenue by Ben Folds and Nick Hornby

30 Oct

The latest album by Ben Folds, Lonely Avenue,  is a little different than his previous efforts. This album was a collaboration between Ben and Nick Hornby. Nick wrote all the lyrics and Ben put the music around it and performed it.

I didn’t know it when I first heard the name, but I am a fan of Nick Hornby! He is an English writer who happened to write the book that one of my favorite movies of all time was based off of, High Fidelity with John Cusack. I’ve actually contemplated purchasing the book (since I’ve started reading actual books!). Every song seems to do a great job telling a story, this shouldn’t be a surprise when you see how many great novels Hornby has written!

Random Shirts…A Return!

26 Oct

Yea, it has been a while, but I’m going to try to blog a bit more. I know I’ve said that before…but here goes nothing!

A couple weeks ago Shirt.Woot! did another random shirt day and if you’ve ever read my blog you’ll know that I LOVE random shirts! This time I picked up two of the mystery shirts. One for me and one for JC.

No pics (still have a broken camera) but I can steal some images from Woot!

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

18 Jun

Today is the grand opening of the newest island at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. You may have heard something about it. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Luckily, since I live right down the street from Universal and have a pass I’ve already been there! Twice actually!

The first time we visited was Saturday afternoon. JC and I were going to Islands of Adventure to ride some coasters (not expecting WWoHP to be open) before seeing Train in concert (Train was amazing BTW). On our way over to Dueling Dragons Dragon Challenge we noticed people walking through part of the Wizarding World and we got giddy. We rushed over and got in! Dumb me didn’t bring his camera, but luckily we went over on Monday (while my car was being fixed) and I took some pictures.

Snow...In Orlando!

Disney Pin Boards

11 May

Remember all those Disney Pins I showed you here? As you can see I have A LOT of pins. Definitely way too many to wear on a lanyard and walk around Disney for a day. Luckily for me I have not only a very beautiful girlfriend, but also a very smart and creative girlfriend.

As a gift for me she made me this:

It is just a piece of foam board with a ribbon stitched in around the edge. Obviously it is the shape of a hidden Mickey! JC made this for me to have a place to keep and display my favorite Disney Pins!
