things I see and must speak on, son!

Seats at Newark Airport Terminal C – so much room!


Seats-at-Newark-Airport-Terminal-C

 

If these seats (found at Newark Airport in Terminal C) don’t look close together, then just give this a try.  Take took chairs, have them face each other and then stand in between them to approximate the same space you see here between my legs and the cushions.  Then ask two people to sit down in the chairs.  Sound fun?  IT’S NOT.

Jamie Insalaco’s Why Did You Get Married?


hiding-from-wife-phone-rates

 

Seriously, Universe, if I see one more of these stupid “I’m a guy and marriage is oppressive” or “I made a huge mistake because the single life is the greatest” things out there, I’m gonna start getting in people’s faces about it.   Or I am.  Now.  With help from Captain America!

Merica! Moment – 7/17/15


merica-gopro-truck

As per Engadget, the 2016 Toyota Tacoma comes with a GoPro mount.  Standard.  Because America, baby.  MERICA!  I’m sure it’s nice to have an integrated GoPro mount for the enthusiast, but these mounts cost between $10 and $75 dollars at the consumer purchasing level, so it’s not as if Toyota is cutting off a leg for its customers.  This is like when we bought our last car and they wanted and extra $1200 for floor mats, cruise control and the integrated phone system (great floor mats cost sixty bucks, aftermarket cruise control costs $300 and my phone already does that because it’s not the past).

MERICA!

Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom’s Snake Pit (a water slide review)


We hit Dorney Park again this year and got to experience their new water slides at Wildwater Kingdom’s The Snake Pit: the Python Plummet body slide and the Boa Blasters and Constrictor tube slides.  Read the rest of this entry

Colonial Club at the Majestic Colonial in Punta Cana, DR review, or “Donde esta leche de soya?”


Colonial-Club-Majestic-Colonial-Punta-Cana-DR

We attended a wedding at the Majestic Colonial Result in Punta Cana, Playa Bávaro, Dominican Republic.  This was my first experience at an all inclusive hotel and my second trip to a Caribbean Island, so I’m something at a novice at the experience, but here’s what I learned, both the good and the bad.  Read the rest of this entry

Bowling, shopping, video games, coffee…  I’ve got it all in this weekend in pictures.   PREPARE TO BE ASTOUNDED! Read the rest of this entry

Earth overreacts to Batman themed railroad photo shoot on railroad tracks


image

This is officially the dumbest thing people have been outraged by so far in 2015.  Yeah, I know – this is a trope from old silent movies, not from Batman! Jeez!
Also, that lady’s clothes are ruined. (PRO TIP:  train tracks are dirty as f@ck.)

“Dad Bods” are nothing to be proud of

An Open Letter to Men,

Hi guys!  I hope you’re doing well, because as a gender… we keep f@cking up.  It’s the Twenty First Century, but sexism, sexual assault and rape are still running rampant.  Not only does the Congressional Committee on Global Women’s Issues handle five other things, but it only seems to have only one female member.  We can’t even watch a Mad Max reboot without complaining that women have ruined it.  Bros, this is not good.  Maybe if all of these other bits weren’t a thing, we could get away with the “Dad Bods” idea, but seriously, guys, the least we can do is f@cking exercise.  Read the rest of this entry

Westin Hotel Showers are Recording Booths


Every time we stay in a Westin, I can’t help but notice the showers and how they are equipped with one mammoth overhead fixture and then a second detachable shower head that looks like a microphone.  And therefore, one can get their Ferris Bueller on. Read the rest of this entry

Bathroom Graffiti: Airport Edition


bathroom-graffiti-airport

 

Ah graffiti artists, how you pull at my heart-strings!  They create art and break the law all in one fell swoop.  It kinda makes me wish I could draw.  I love the detail on the mouth here as we are asked to ponder “Wake up” or “Keep Dreaming?”  Those angry eyebrows make me think that waking up is not the prefered course or action and I do find it quite apropos to the airport experience.  When one is traveling, you’re detached from the routine and sometimes, it feels that if you could just keep on going and never return home, maybe you’d just “keep dreaming.”

My mind tends to wander when I’m in the bathroom.

There she blows! It’s my recycling garbage all over the neighborhood!

When I went outside this morning and found this recycling mess, for some reason, all I could think of was Willem Dafoe’s death in Platoon

Oh Hai, Society – Stop Telling Me Not To Get Married!


marriage-ball-and-chain

This is appropriate in society for some reason.

I’m getting married and I’m pumped up about it!  EVERYBODY STOP TRYING TO KILL MY BUZZ!  Seriously, society – what’s your problem?  Here’s my theory:
