Christmas Time is here. Have another beer...

In the spirit of the holidays, I was going to talk about twelve things that the Christmas season has brought us. Even more so, these are general observations I have had over the last month or so. As I started to dive in, and with time running short before Christmas, I have decided to narrow the list down. I was going to include links on some of them, but alas, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is on, and my attention is divided. Enjoy and Happy Holidays to all! Thanks for stopping by.

1.) Grandma needs to take it easy on the eggnog. While it's always nice to have in moderation, I learned on Yahoo this week that eggnog is not healthy for you. Not only is it high in cholesterol, but apparently if you have too much, it increases your chances of getting run over by a reindeer. And also, what kind of ass is Grandpa that he wouldn't even walk Grandma home that night. It could have saved us all a lot of heartache. (Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer is popularly s…

Rise of Technology

We can all agree that technology has helped us out in many ways. At least I think most of us would agree. Without technology, I would be writing all of this in a composition book that I keep under my bed. Some people would call that a diary or a journal, but because of technology, I will call it a blog. Thank you technology.

As it goes, I am not going to go on an old man rant here in my journal (I mean blog). I simply am going to present a situation, give my thoughts on it, and hopefully see if people have feedback.

Let me set the scene. We have all seen cars broken down on the side of the road. Many of us have probably been there ourselves. Twenty five years ago, unless you were one of the few that had a cell phone or car phone, a person must wait on the side of the road until someone else stopped to help out or you could walk yourself to a pay phone.

Cell phones and other great marvels of technology have certainly made it a bit easier to call a tow truck or call a friend to …

A December update...

I figured since I was looking to get back into the blog game a little bit, I'd follow up my first post in months (the genius of Craig James) with a little update of what has transpired in my life over the last year.

I'll start in April. I don't know if it was mentioned, but I made a return to the stage. I won't necessarily call it a triumphant return, but it was a return nonetheless. I was lucky enough to act in Alley Repertory Theater's production of The Farnsworth Invention by Aaron Sorkin. It was my first opportunity working with this theater company here in Boise and I must say, it was a joy to be acting again. I've always considered writing my first love, and it still is, but there is a huge part of me that still likes to perform and act when I get the opportunity. Sports were always a huge part of my life growing up and I see acting as that same chance to get up and feel the rush of performing for an audience.

As it turns out, this would be the firs…
