Getting older means that the artists in your iTunes library slowly end up dead.

Trader Joe’s Candy Cane Green Tea is too good for this world.

Die Hard is a Christmas movie.

Also?

Ghostbusters II is a New Year’s movie.

Heard in the kitchen: “SO MUCH GLITTERRRRRR!”

Me: [lights the nearest curtain on fire]

Christmas in Hollis is the best Christmas song. Fight me.

2020 resolution: never look up a recipe on the internet.

Online recipes are a cesspool of pointless family stories and people begging for you to sign up for their newsletter so they can tell you pointless family stories.

By the time I’m 57, everything I say will be a reference to a pop culture property. 96% of those references will be to the first 8 seasons of the Simpsons.

Music my kids have played in the HomePod this morning: Shake It Off by Taylor Swift, Karate and Starlight by Babymetal.

Traffic westbound on I-70 outside Kansas City was horrible. Half of a double-wide trailer home blew off the semi carrying it. The entire freeway was shuttered. Luckily, we were headed east.

Sometimes white noise machines make the world livable. I dig a good white noise machine.

I’m somewhere on the plains in Kansas right now, and nature is providing ample white noise. The wind is incredible (and I say that as someone who’s been outside during a Texas hurricane).

Heading home from our vacation. Gotta find some way to integrate back into normal life now. Gonna be tough.
