Christmas Eve


December 24, 2011 (Day 270) — Christmas Eve Both of my brothers will be here tonight from the east coast. All of Jenn’s family is here.

Poinsettia


November 30, 2011 (Day 246) — Poinsettia Something simple. Something kind. Something borrowed. Something blue. Okay, actually, this is red. Not blue. But hey. I finally had a reason to use that Tobias Fünke picture. Whilst out and about Christmas browsing, my wife was given a Poinsettia. This seems like as good a time as […]

Gingervitis


November 1, 2011 (Day 217) — Gingervitis Okay, faithful readers. Pop culture pop quiz. Where does the term “gingervitis” come from? Didn’t get it? Did I not give you enough time to guess. Too bad. Being a wordy blog we’re kind of stuck in time. We’re going to go ahead and give you the answer. […]
