Why? Christmas v. The Mayans

Mayan Christmas

Mayan Christmas! Ho, Ho, Noooooooo!

Shop for friends/family or prep for the End of the World? It would have been nice if Christians and Mayans had worked this out earlier.

I’m at an impasse this morning on what I am going to write. It’s not just this blog. In case you haven’t been following, I am writing funny blog pieces for an online dating site (www.datingwebsites.org – just look for my name under bloggers). And of course, there is Cocktails & Movies – my homage to drinking and going to the movies. AND, there is the new business, Total Engagement Media – my social media consultancy.

And all this during the holiday shopping season (oh, did I mention that I am working at Barnes & Noble for the holidays?). Oh, and then there are the dogs that I am boarding and walking every day. You see, it’s a lot to do each day. Continue reading

Your “+1’s”

I’m back to discuss your “+1’s.”

Your +1's are not JUST about your friends

It’s not just about whether you are bringing a date to the big event.

Hello, everyone! It’s the Thanksgiving holiday! Or, as the retail world now calls it: the speed bump between Halloween and Christmas. It’s time today to talk about your “+1’s.” And, no, not just the answers to whether or not you are actually bringing a date or a “friend” to the big event.

But, first, I am sorry that I’m late with this post. As some of you may know I’ve embarked on creating a little thing called “Cocktails & Movies,” a long-gestating creation of mine which combines the fun of going out as a group to get cocktails during a happy hour, then going to see a movie in an actual theater. (The justification of WHY this must be done is there on the landing page for the site.) You can also find it on Facebook (Facebook/cocktailsandmovies) and of course on Twitter @cocktailsmovies.

Election Day Issues – TV Animation Quote Edition

(make sure to watch all the links, everyone)

REMEMBER TO VOTE TODAY, PEOPLE!!! (Just like Homer) OTHERWISE THE TERRORISTS, VOLDEMORT AND EMPEROR PALPATINE ALL WIN… Be an informed voter, and a prepared voter, to avoid voter surpression. Maybe you can read and watch this in the line to vote.

Undecided voters, take note.

Simpsons election issuesI know you’re tired. You’re fed up. You’re happy to see this day come and exit quickly. But, that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun with discussing the issues. From immigration to health care to to education to abortion rights to the economy to the conflicts (no war was ever declared) around the world, here are some things to think about as you stand next to that woman who thinks Obama is a socialist Kenyan or that man who believes Romney is actually going to pull the zipper and remove the costume revealing an alien inside…

Right to Choose/Right to Life/Abortion Rights: Whatever you want to call it, whether you are for life, choice or you just want someone to say what they mean, here is WHAT they say to get your vote.

Health Care: We may not be #1 in health care, but at least.. well, I’ll let Homer tell you. Some countries also offer FREE healthcare. Canada, such a horrible country to live in…

Also, what are you candidates’ thoughts on Stem cell research

 ImmigrationWho will kick our field goals or train our white tigers? – Homer Simpson

Whether it’s day laborers or our porous borders, it’s a heated issue.

Education: How is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain – remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive?

Religion: Religion is best left out of politics, for obvious reasons. Evolution vs. Creationism is a big thing to lots of voters, especially on the state left as people elect boards of eductions. Whether you are Christian or other, the candidates’ religion should be low on the factor list.

There is a bunch that I am missing including unions, teachers, and politicians themselves, but hopefully you’ve got a smile on that face when you go to vote today!
