Happy New Year

Normally the last Monday of the year I don't post anything new. I find something that I had previously posted or take the lazy way out and post pictures. Well, since last week I totally flaked and was under the weather. Here we are!

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Be nice to people and for the most part they will be nice to you. If not they are an asshole.
2. Congrats to Sean Riccio on finishing his card at the Wickendon pub.
3. This year I was into Christmas more than years past.
4. Twin Rivers is a pretty ghetto casino but their hotel is nice.
5. Chrissy welcome to the casino suspension list, 6 months will fly by.
6. Dave, congrats on the new rescue dog.
7. The older you get the more you realize naps are not a bad thing.
8. A few beers, a whole lotta laughs, with some friends is all you need when feeling down.
9. It's football square season.
10. Chicks at a strip club are automatically part of the show.
11. If Rhode Island is going to take bets then they should have more than 4 windows.
12. I am not sure who decided that Chinese food is a must for New Year's Eve but man that person was on to something.
13. Being 41 ain't so bad.
14. I still haven't quite figured out how to properly trim my beard without shaving it almost off.
15. My top 5 deserts - in no particular order - strawberry shortcake, Boston creme pie, Oreo cheese cake, apple pie and deep fried twinkies.
16. More bars should open on Christmas. Like any time after 4pm. Not early morning but as an escape to get away from in-laws.
17. Fantasy football is officially over.
18. Who is geared up for the Winter classic tomorrow? Hit me up if you aren't hung over and want to grab some lunch and watch.
19. Chrissy is still looking for a jobby job.
20. I'd like to thank anyone who has ever stopped by this random blog about nothing and useless rambling.

Here is to bigger and better things in 2019. Bigger game plans and execution. Pivots and exit strategies.

Let's all try to be nicer in 2019.

Gonna be quick

You guys have 10 shopping days left...till my birthday.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Totally normal to have someone just swap out your toilet for a comfort height toilet, right?
2. I had to buy a snake for a backed up drain in my kitchen. So if anyone is looking for one, hit me up.
3. I am probably the only person I know who is excited for Aquaman.
4. Congrats to Kung Fu Dave on the new job. UMass Lowell is lucky to have you.
5. Brothers bar in Hanover is a nice spot.
6. Chris Leaden has already received 6 orders for cheesecakes. Hit him up if you need one for the holidays.
7. The Macphails annual new years party is fast approaching.
8. Who wears vneck t-shirts?
9. Has anyone gotten the new ID yet? Why do I feel like there are many new hoops to jump through?
10. Blue cheese can really make or break your buffalo chicken experience.
11. It is always sad when you hear of someone taking their life. People always seem to have demons that they don't talk about.
12. I love butterscotch shots, it reminds me of Canada.
13. People are still quick to defend the Patriots even after 2 shitty games. Constructive criticism does not exist around here.
14. I plan to finally finish my card at wickendon pub on Saturday, December 29th.

2 weeks

There are only 2 weeks left to go shopping for Christmas.
I can't believe this year's almost over. Here is to hoping 2019 has less floods than 2018.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Colorado is nice. The people are nice. The weather is nice. The views are nice.
2. You have to crawl before you walk.
3. This was the first football Sunday I missed in God knows how long.
4. Almost 41 and still can not sleep in hotels.
5. Time zones and time travel are basically the same.
6. I don't know anything about drinking at high altitudes making you drunk faster. I experienced the exact opposite. Just drinking with no drunk in sight.
7. I could get on board with Sunday football being at 11 am though.
8. If Arizona is a dry heat then Colorado is a dry cold. Even though it was in the 20s you could easily get away with a sweatshirt.
9. There are "head shops" on every corner. That's what the locals call them. The one on Washington and Jacobs street is the best.
10. Happy Hour rules. Drink specials rock.
11. Fuck your bar if your stools have no backs.
12. Building codes, fire code and the Divinci codes all sound the fucking same after 3 1/2 hours.
13. The best part of travel is all the great food you can experience. The worst part of travel is just wanting a good home cooked meal.
14. Coors (I mean what animal drinks Coors Banquet on the regular anyway) and Coors light does not taste any better in the state of Colorado.
15. Once a month I feel like I experience going 2 steps forward and 3-5 steps back.
16. I don't mind Christmas shopping when there's drinking breaks involved.
17. Chris Leaden is taking orders for holiday cheese cakes, $35 a cake. Don't knock anyone's side hustle.
18. RWK heating and cooling are moving to Pembroke.
19. Cheddar cheese stuffed jalapeno poppers wrapped in bacon on top of a burger may actually change your life. I know it did mine.
20. Looks like the Cape house is booked for July 6th through the 13th. See ya there.

Season of giving

We are into the home stretch. This year is almost over. Let us all try to get nicer to each other, give a little more (if you can afford too), and just try to end this thing on some positive vibes.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Getting together for a good cause with good people is always a good time.
2. Thanks to everyone who showed up this last weekend and donated gifts.
3. The Cape on the off season is becoming overly crowded.
4. Forget trying to find parking down town iin Quincy now a days.
5. Always take time for yourself. Even if it is 30 minutes in a week.
6. Congrats on Supah P and his wife on buying a house in Lakeville.
7. As is the norm, Mike Foley is too cool for school when it comes to crawls.
8. Are you ever too old to look forward to your birthday?
9. I am looking forward to Luther season 5 next month.
10. Why do jeans always fit better after a few wears?
11. Every year I say I am going to do better with my time management and every year it's a fail.
12. The older you get the more you realize what is and what isn't important.
