For the first time in as many years as I can remember, I did not have a heart-shaped pizza on Valentine's Day. It was a difficult and very hard decision to stick to. This morning, I woke up and the sun was still shining, time was still moving, and as far as I can tell, nothing has been affected by this decision. To be honest, it's freaking me out a little bit. When you do something for so long, it's hard to believe that you can get by without it, but you can! Things apparently continue to move forward no matter [...]
There's a conspiracy theory that Chuck E. Cheese RECYCLES pizza! Supposedly, they take uneaten slices of pizza back to the kitchen, use them to piece together entire pizzas and reserve. I'm grossed out, what about the evidence to make this a thing. Well according to the conspiracy, it's all about how pizzas at Chuck E. Cheese look. Never perfect circles, slices cut all different lengths, and sometimes half a pepperoni disappears on a cut. YouTube star Shane Dawson went to a Chuck E. Cheese to debunk the conspiracy. Sadly, it just made him believe it more! Ordering three pizzas and all [...]
[Giving it my best positive attitude] This isn't stopping, the snow is going to keep coming. We need to change our perspective. Instead of "Why do we live here?" and "UUGGHH, will it ever end?" we should look at it differently. "Look at what we get today, FREE cardio!" We get another opportunity to get out there and play in the snow, another opportunity to get my money's worth on these boots and winter coat. Is it helping yet? That's fine, I tried. I really just wanted to say the phrase: Winter, Winter, Chicken Dinter and then share this kid. Because he's [...]
What a weekend, National Pizza Day was celebrated in an amazing fashion along with my birthday. Not sure which one was more important, but following 2 pizzas, cheesy breadsticks, and lots of birthday cake, I was in food coma during a snowy Sunday. Best weekend ever. In all seriousness, what a wonderful weekend, so many texts, phone calls, and social media messages! Thank you for all the birthday wishes. I'm not always good with self-confidence, but reminders like this weekend do wonders! Thank you.
^^^^ Yup, that's my "I have pizza" dance, I look just like that guy, but with a baseball cap. Seriously, National Pizza Day and my birthday are on Saturday and I am looking forward to celebrating with my favorite food for the first time in 2019.

Captain's Log, Day 38, 2019 It's snowing again. For the umpteenth time this year. This time it's something "new", A BLIZZARD! Really it's the same sh*t, but they've just run out of things to call this miserable crap! Schools are closed, businesses are shutting down, roads are becoming invisible, and still, each brave driver takes to the road hoping to stop for coffee. Actually, I was thinking about all the activities you could be doing if you were snowed in... again. Build a fort out of couch cushions, watch "The Office" (again), cook a nice meal, or brainstorm your million dollar business [...]

MAROON 5 didn't get a lot of love for their Super Bowl Halftime Show from the critics, who called it "lackluster", "doomed from the start," "basic," "a total flop," "boring," and an "artless spectacle." But it was good enough to make people immediately go out and download their music! THIS IS WHY YOU SAY TO HELL WITH THE HATERS AND DO THE HALFTIME SHOW! Nielsen Music reports that the songs performed during halftime . . . including the ones by Travis Scott and Big Boi . . . sold 25,000 downloads on Sunday. That's a 434% increase from their combined sales [...]
