Cup of Random: Regifting Ted Edition
It is snowing. It has been snowing steadily for over
4 6 9 12 hours at the time of this writing (I had video issues). There is at least three five inches of snow on the ground. For the record, I live in a desert about 45 minutes from Hollywood.
Hey, we'll take it.
Perhaps you've been wondering where I've been. Or perhaps you've been equally busy and haven't noticed that I haven't posted in a week, which is actually a month in blog years. The truth is, I've been here at home, but I've been working 15 hour days to allow myself some quality time around Christmas. And then there's the drinking...
Plus, Atticus has been home from school for winter break and the two boys are driving me out of my mind. They're dangerously close to getting lumps of coal in their stockings- or worse.
We did go to Disneyland for a couple of days to take in the holiday sights. It was crazy cold and incredibly packed. Sardines have elbow room compared to the crowds we swam against. Our paths crossed one night with that of the PetCobra family and together we drank some beers and watched our children bond over unhealthy amounts of sugar and excitement. It was like this, but louder and with bees. Good fun.
We've also been doing stuff like this:
Can you guess which one I made?
You may recall that there is drawing of sorts going on today. I am giving away five copies each of the books listed in the previous post. For some reason nobody wanted the Ted Turner book, but five of you won it. Letterman said it was a good read, so there's that.
If you are one of the lucky winners please email me your mailing address (no P.O. boxes per the publisher) and I'll get your book sent to you. Hopefully they'll arrive before Christmas if you're regifting Ted.
(BTW, I have spent literally all day trying to upload a damn video with the snow and the kids and the tree and the drawing of the names and the boys making fun of the names, but it isn't working. I refuse to let this ruin my Christmas.)
Outliers: Apathy Lounge, Bridge, Father Muskrat, Moe Berg and VegasDad!
Ted: Flutter, Hygiene Dad, Mocha Dad, Rattling the Kettle and Willie G!
Those of you that didn't win, don't worry. I'll be giving away some other books soon! I've also been asked to review adult films and products. How do you think that would go over? It takes me a week of 15 minute increments to watch a porno.
On another note, if you haven't done so please visit UpTake. Add us to your RSS if you're feeling it. That would be downright decent of you.
Until next time...
