Weapons of Mass Seduction

You’ve all seen it already. If you haven’t, here it is again.

Some people liked the song enough that they wanted to download it. I thought I’d throw in some more of my favorites. Not all of them work out as nicely as the one in the video but make a mixed tape with some of these songs and you’re on your way to some guaranteed lovin’!

“IOU One Galaxy” by The Ataris
“Without You” by MxPx
“Above Me” by Rufio
“Angel” by Slick Shoes
“Want You Bad” by The Offspring
“You’re Not Alone” by MxPx
“Youth” by Goldfinger
“Song for a Mix Tape” by The Ataris
“Move to Bremerton” by MxPx

What are your favorites?

One of these blog posts is a lie.

I’m sure you’ve all seen Michelle’s latest post. I’m also sure you’ve seen one of her latest Twitter posts.


I’d like to offer a different side to the story, a tale of deception and corruption. This is the story of a blogger gone bad.

Michelle: I need to blog more, but I’ve been so busy I haven’t had time to come up with good ideas.
Me: Well you just need one good idea to get you out of your slump and back in the game.
Michelle: What should I write about, computers?
Me: Don’t be ridiculous. Most of your readers are girls. You should be writing about things like delicious Thanksgiving dinners. Wait! I got it. Let’s stage an engagement. You can milk it for a couple years, write about wedding stuff too. Girls will eat that stuff up!
Michelle: That’s a great idea! Our families will be kind of mad when they find out, but it’s a small price to pay for blogger fame. Our story will have to be intricate.
Me: Don’t worry. I’ve got it covered. I’m going to work up this video and people will be so caught up in it that they won’t realize it’s old footage from “The Wonder Years” and by the time anyone figures out, we’ll be on our way to Mexico.
Michelle: Muahahahahahaha! Come on, do the evil laugh with me!
Me: Muahahahhaha!

Or I could just be in love…you decide.

Pandora’s Little Blue Box

I recently came to the realization that I am not afraid of moving forward in my relationship. I told Michelle to figure out what kind of ring style she would like. This was two and a half weeks ago.

Since then she has posted this and this. I’ve created a monster. There is a marked difference between not being ready to move forward and racing forward. I am not looking to be the Michael Phelps of relationships. When she came back from Hawaii and said, “I planned out the whole wedding,” Not even one Star Wars themed idea. Not one. She even contemplated going to a wedding dress sample sale this weekend.

I’ve pulled the reigns on this thing before the horse gets in front of the cart. The last thing I want is to propose and have Michelle call a wedding planner first. “Green light! It’s a go! Okay, I have to go call my parents now.”
