Free Falling Face First into the New Year. Happy 2017!

new-year-memes-funny-whatsapp

Here’s wishing everyone a safe, happy, and healthy New Year. 2016 for many was just a total abomination of a year, and as we head into 2017 there is much trepidation and uneasiness of what the future holds in store. Yet, the new year also brings the opportunity for personal growth, renewed fortitude, and better times ahead. It’s times like these that good friends and loving family are much valued, and should be held close.

Life truly is short, and we only have a certain amount of time here on this planet. Stop procrastinating. Make a change. Do something worthwhile. Get healthy. Face your fears. Make a difference. Make amends. Love someone. Reach out. Put petty differences aside. Show you care. See the world. Lend a hand. Do something crazy. Stop worrying. Laugh more. Go for it.

In the immortal words of Ferris Bueller –

Heading into 2016 at Ludicrous Speed! Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all! It’s been one a heck of a ride in 2015 hasn’t it?

Well, here we are fresh into the New Year and with 2015 in the rear view mirror I am looking forward to see what awaits me in the next twelve months. This past year has been one of many ups and down in my life. The passing of loved ones, completing another mudder race for charity, many food and drinking adventures with friends, travel abroad, work stress along with work success, attending concerts of my fav bands while seeing some play their last shows, Broadway events, friends getting married, along with many laughs, tears, trials and tribulations along the way. As always, my rock along the way keeping me honest, and on the straight and narrow has been my gal Stacey. Sometimes I wonder why she still sticks with me as I must be a lot to handle, but for some reason she puts up with my stubbornness and shenanigans. Guess she loves me and my crazy ways. Here’s to more fun in 2016!

Eat more salads. Yeah, I know it’s pretty basic and kind of cliché when Jan 1 comes around to start a diet but I really need to cut back on the meat and crappy food eating. Gotta get those greens in even if it means sacrificing my love of greasy crispy delicious bacon. Sigh.

Jump out of a plane, climb a volcano, surf in shark infested waters, complete the NYC Marathon, run with the bulls, kayak over a waterfall, have an extreme enema, find Waldo. Screw it. I’ll just have some deep-fried Oreos and a nap.

Stop fretting over the little things. As long as I remember that we are all surrounded by assholes it will be ok. Continue reading Heading into 2016 at Ludicrous Speed! Happy New Year!

The Zen of Egg Nog in a Griswold Christmas Kind of World

41b9115fffaa749acbab66a19c4f7bb8

Christmas, yes, we are here again. There are those who embrace the holidays and those who shudder at the thought of them. Hey, at least it’s almost hitting 70 degrees here in NYC. In December. Yeah, there’s no such thing as global warming you say? Time to break out the mistletoe speedos and throw a shrimp on the barbie!

When someone offers you egg nog at a friend or family’s house you drink the nog. Especially if it has real booze in it. Because nog dammit! Don’t worry about the fat and calories. Just release your gluttonous desires and drink up! It’s Christmas time! Break out the sweatpants!

Oh, and if National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation or Elf is on TV you watch them. It’s tradition, and also because they are goofy fun. Why watch the depressing It’s a Wonderful Life when you can view Cousin Eddie driving Clark Griswold absolutely nuts. Pop open the Jack Daniels egg nog and drink it right out of the bottle. Squirrel!

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

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!
