The Avengers on Blu-ray

Allie  just came back from shopping at Target. We chatted about a few things and I casually asked her if she hit Walgreen’s by chance, since they’re having a special offer for a Free Bobblehead with the purchase of The Avengers DVD. She merely rolled her eyes and continued our conversation. Then she told me […]

Brace Yourself for the Aporkalypse: A Bacon Shortage is Coming

Bacon Sandwich

I have some horrific news to share. No, it’s not about politics. Nor disease. Nor blind referees who can’t make a correct call in a football game to save their lives. No, this is much more serious. In fact, it’s something tantamount to apocalyptic proportions. I’m not talking about the start of The Walking Dead’s third season […]

Carbonite 1 Year of Data Backup #Giveaway (Ends 10/9)

Lego Han Solo in Carbonite

Raise your hand if you thought Carbonite was only good for deep-freezing smugglers with a heart of gold? Apparently, Jabba the Hutt wasn’t the only one thinking about preserving important data. The data in his case, being one Han Solo. If you’ve never heard of them, Carbonite is an Online Backup System for personal or […]

We Made Our Own Sushi This Weekend and It Actually Looked Legit

Homemade Sushi

My wife and I love sushi. We love making sushi. We love eating sushi. We love dressing up as sushi. Okay, wait. Scratch that last one. But we do love us some sushi! This weekend we got together with our family friends The Tatars to introduce them to the fine art of sushi making. Our […]

The Strength of 1: Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness

The Strength of 1

It’s not even October yet, and already pink is in the air. I’ve seen a number of Breast Cancer Awareness campaigns running already. And I think that’s great. No, it’s not the only disease out there, but it is one of the most preventable if detected early on. So in my opinion, every month should […]

Candy Corn Oreos Sadly Didn’t Impress Much

Candy Corn Oreos

Well, my parents came down for the weekend and brought two very important things with them: Limited-Edition Candy Corn Oreos, and my all-time favorite homemade cookies in the world: Magic Cookie Bars. If you’ve been following my blog, you already know of my family’s obsession with finding Candy Corn Oreos. We still can’t find them […]

This Galaxy Needs a Super Cool Star Wars Themed Casino in Las Vegas

Star Wars slot machine

What’s the coolest thing about Las Vegas? Yeah, those insanely ginormous casinos. All the different themed ones are just so much fun to see from a distance, as well as from inside. The New York shows off huge landmarks from the Big Apple. The Venetian actually has a canal system in the middle of its […]

Guess What I’m Finally Getting to Eat This Weekend

Candy Corn Oreo Cookies

My wife’s been searching high and low in our county for these limited-edition Candy Corn Oreo cookies and she keeps coming up empty. We have two Targets, a Wal-Mart and loads of grocery stores, yet none of them in our NY area carries them. (Apparently, it’s not just my family that’s way too obsessed over Oreos. […]

Logitech Wireless Keyboard and Mouse #Giveaway (Ends 10/4)


I must’ve been a cat in a former life because no matter what I do, I seem to have a talent for destroying computer mice. Particularly of the wireless variety. I love wireless keyboards and even moreso, love wireless mice. It’s just soooo much easier to move your mouse around without any wires pulling you […]

77-Pound Dachshund Weighs More Than My Kids!

77-Pound Dachshund

So Allie runs into my office and  says I have to see this video about a 77-pound weiner dog. Dachshunds are just adorable little “hot dogs.” If I owned you, better believe I’d dress him up in a hot dog costume all the time. Anyways, this poor little, er, obese pup named Obie was apparently […]

Who Knew Las Vegas Could Actually Be Fun?

Las Vegas

I could use a vacation. Between the stress of juggling my freelance writing, my daddy blog, and JoeShopping, searching for a new full-time job, dealing with some legal issues, getting crazy ridiculous tax bills, and all the normal stresses of life, I could certainly use a little breather. I”m not really the beach type. For […]

My Hot Threesome With Katie Couric and 50 Shades of Grey Author EL James

Yep, I had a threesome with Katie Couric and E L James

Today was my appearance on Katie with special guest, Fifty Shades of Grey author E L James. (If you missed the excitement, do some catching up on Why I’m On Katie Couric’s new show). I had no idea what to expect and was somewhat nervous this morning. I was actually surprised I wasn’t MORE nervous all weekend, […]
