Random Acts of Shifeness - Memories

What is happening? I am back home after spending a few days in Arizona for a work conference. It was nice to be in a warmer locale but I was glad to be home. 


One of the highlights of the work trip was eating eat at a place called the Cornish Pasty. They had great beer and even better food. The picture above is my dinner. The bartender said it was a pound of food and every ounce of it was delicious.


Ms. Frizzle hopes you had a nice Valentine's Day. We made Mrs. Shife a card for the day. I don't know why but labradore made me LOL a lot yesterday. 




Frizzy was glad to have me back home. I think mostly because I took her to the river. I know she loves me but I am pretty sure she loves the water more. 


The Zuck (aka Mark Zuckerberg) (aka Facebook Overlord) thought I needed to be reminded of the days when I used to be a Facebook advocate and shared my thoughts on a somewhat regular basis. I am sharing them with you because they made me laugh and reminded me that sometimes I can be funny. 



Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely weekend and I will talk to you soon. 





I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.

Random Acts of Shifeness - Challenge Accepted


  • Dry January was successfully completed and I celebrated by drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon and watching a cinematic adventure with Kyle on Feb. 1. We enjoyed "Pirates of the Caribbean" and Kyle was drinking water in case you were wondering. 
  • I am doing another challenge for February and this month I'm avoiding added sugar. So any foods that have any additional sugars included are no longer part of my diet. Goodbye ice cream, donuts and cinnamon rolls. 
  • I think I am going to try something new every month. Any suggestions for March? Maybe  knitting? macaroni art? soap carving? competitive dog grooming? time travel? 
  • Screenshots. First up, a quote from the movie "The Goods," which featured Will Ferrell dressed as Abe Lincoln falling to his death. I guess you can sort of conclude that from the quote. You're welcome for my brillance. 

Next up is a Facebook memory. Here's Hayden just over 2-year-old waddling around in a snowsuit. 


Fast forward 5 years later and she's starring in a digital ad campaign for Boise State University.  


Finally, here's a poem from Kyle. I like it. The kid has some talent. 

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend and I will talk to you soon.





I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.

Great Balls


Almost all of you guessed #1 on my little quiz last week. 
And that was the wrong answer. 
Mr. Van Halen did get some panties tossed his way by yours truly. 
I can't believe you didn't remember me writing about that almost 14 years ago. 



I am sure that's why Van Halen has never returned to Boise, Idaho.
#2 was actually the lie. 
I have never hung out on the street corner handing out lemons wearing a "Life" shirt. 
But it's something I definitely want to do. 
You would think that me admitting that I threw turd-stained underwear on stage at a concert would be the worst thing you would read about on my blog today.
You would be wrong.
I present this:

Just when you think things can't get any more disturbing on the third rock from the Sun.
Seriously, what in the wide world of fudge is going with people?
Is the point where we have jumped the shark as a species?
As a species, do human beings need a new predator to take us out?
Have we been at the top of the food chain too long? 
Bloody hell. 
I am typing the words "doggie scrotal decoration." 
This isn't good.

You could have some fun with the advertising or headlines I guess:
"Go Nuts" 
"A Whole New Ball Game"
"Deck The Balls" 
"If These Balls Could Talk" 
"The Balls In Your Court" 
"Totes Amazeballs" 
"Foul Balls"

Here's a link to the article if you want to read more about it.


Thanks for swinging by. I will talk to you soon. 






I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.
