You just can’t fix stupid, and more blogging nonsense in NYC!

 

seriously-are-you-qzkdya

Wait, where have all these blog posts come from? The madness of my mind surprises even myself at times.

Lately, I have not had a lot of time to keep up on my blogging adventures. Little things such as everyday life kind of get in the way. Earning a living, family dealings, going outside and actually having a life, etc. It sometimes gets kind of hard to keep up on things. So I apologize to my readers out there if my postings have been sporadic at best, and commenting back has been hit or miss. Things have calmed down a bit and I will be dropping by to see what you all are up to very soon. In the meantime, I just want to offer a big thanks to all that have stayed with me along the way through all of my gluttonous meals, drunken exploits, and rantings of NYC craziness.

I just happened to take a peek at my WordPress stats and tools to see what has been going on. The spam filter is working and caught a bunch of junk, I had a few plug-ins to update, and then I noticed one big thing that caught my eye. I had hit 400 blog posts! Holy crap when did that happen? Now, I know it’s not a huge number to many bloggers out there who seemingly have a ton of time to post something almost every day, but to me that’s something to celebrate a bit. I remember when I started this mess of a blog I had no clue what I was doing. I had a vision of the niche I wanted to develop for myself and it had to be unique. After all, you don’t find too many male bloggers out there with a lifestyle, food, and humor blog all rolled into one. Along with the 400 posts are also thousands of comments that have accumulated along the way. Again, I thank all who have read and commented. I am humbled that some actually enjoy this mindless babble.

Hopefully, I can hit the next 100 posts and people will still like what I am doing here. Even if I will need to post shots of myself in assless chaps, or pics of my junk to keep your attention. This fame whore will earn it, baby! Continue reading You just can’t fix stupid, and more blogging nonsense in NYC!

Up in the air at 30,000 feet with a demon child!

this-ice-cream-k1hiyq
Well, here we go again. Off on a biz trip and jet-setting to wonderfully fabulous glitzy Las Vegas! Yeah, I wish. I’m actually sitting on a crowded flight on my way to steamy hot humid Florida to attend a convention and then spend a few days with the parental units. Accompanying us on this plane is the demon child from Hades. I need a stiff drink already.

You know, Florida, the clown car of a state that if the Jerry Springer show had invented it would be a perfect setting for the next Sharnado movie. Heck, I like the cheesy Sharknado movies. The next one should be based in Disney World, and have flying sharks and zombies attacking and eating the tourists. B-list guest stars like Shaq, Snoop Dog, the Olsen Twins, the crew of The Love Boat, and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills all get devoured or help save the day. Even a drunken John Stamos shows up in a cameo to get pulled over with another DUI, and gets swallowed whole by a Great White as he is doing the drunk “walk the line” test. Yet, I kid Florida. I kid. Hey, if not for Florida and Vegas the show COPS would have never existed. That there’s quality programming folks. Continue reading Up in the air at 30,000 feet with a demon child!

People Who Deserve a Throat Punch at the Magic Kingdom!

As many of you following my blog probably know I was away on vacation last week. Traveled down to the “Scary Land” known as Florida. Yup, the state where most of the weird news and happenings seem to come from that populate my Facebook news feed. The territory of Cracker Barrel, Denny’s, and Waffle House. It’s like redneck nirvana down there. A place where the drivers are horrible. Where blue hairs roam the land like zombies, and Billy Bobs with big guts, mullets, and bigger belt buckles dominate the landscape. I swear a passport should be required to go into and out of Florida. This strange populace is lorded over by the man, um rat, himself – Mickey Mouse. Of course, no trip to the Orlando area would be complete without a pilgrimage to the Magic Kindom and Disney World parks! Yes, I do admit that I still love the Disney parks. I’m just a big kid, and will always be one. The rides, the characters, the food, the movies, the shows, all still enthrall me. My family has a terrific timeshare about a mile from the front gate of the parks that we have had forever, and spending time with the parental units at Disney World is always fun.

Yet, as I get a bit older I am losing patience with the things that some of the idiots from around the country, and world, seem to do when here. I think it’s time for a Disney rant! Here is a short list of things that makes me want to punch someone in the throat!

1 – Parents that can’t, or refuse, to control their spawn. Ok, I get it, kids will be kids. It’s a long day at the parks, and can get hot and sweaty. Kids get cranky and tired. Those I can deal with. It’s the parents that won’t even try to calm their unruly kids down or take them outside when in full screaming meltdown mode that irks me. It’s your child – deal with it. Don’t make the rest of us suffer. I’m here to have fun too. Sorry your spawn from Hell is ruining your Disney experience. Don’t ruin mine. Have a magical day!

The South is a scary place for this Regular NYC Guy!

The South. Just the word and imagery conjures up the willies in me. Every once in a while I travel down to these parts to visit family. They decided to do the old folks retirement thing and settle down in Florida a few years back. Yup – they hightailed it to the humid hot confines of the scary South to get away from the Northern winters. Seems like it’s a law or something that once you hit 65 or older you need to return to the mothership of Walmart and Waffle House. There are some freaks down here for sure. If Jerry Springer could be elected President of Crazy this would be his country. It’s a strange combination of retirees, transplants, an occasional native born here, and zombies from The Walking Dead. Oh, and don’t forget “The People of Walmart” as they seem to thrive in Florida. I am typing this post while on vacation down here with the parental units, and we are at the Tampa Hard Rock Casino for a few days before we do the Disney thing. Oh boy, are there some characters in this joint. I can hear “dueling banjos” playing in my brain constantly down here. Hey, we actually did pretty well playing dollar slots and poker. Also, we are fans of The Rat and the Death Star known as the Disney Parks. Say goodbye to my cash and credit cards! The saving grace is that we will be at Epcot for the International Wine and Food Expo which is an absolute blast. It’s the one day at a Disney park that turns into a drunkfest along with total gluttony! It’s like adult’s day to get bombed and it’s perfectly ok! I’m all excited for Brews Around The World. So. Much. Beer.

You all know what EPCOT stands for right? Every Person Carried Out Trashed! Good thing mom doesn’t drink so we have a built in designated driver. Poor mom. Mmmmm…..Beeeeer!
