Running with the Mickey!

My Mickey ears are horns,

…but it took a trip to Disney World for us to actually go ahead and get them.

Check out how spot-on these are! The guy cut them in two minutes! Amazing!

KB is pretty accurate…

…but I’m seriously waiting for mine to start talking.

Open beer...

…for this sweet little surprise that came in the mail today!

Not only does it open a beer, but it also comes with a little reminder of home.

...with a little love from home.

Thanks, Du and Jade! Youse guys are the best!

Already used it three times today,

Dwellemail = THE BEST, JERRY! THE BEST!

Dirty little Daniel….

Dirty Daniel!

All of those stickers are now stuck to my suitcase,

…what with my birthday at the end of September, KB’s birthday in mid-October, and our wedding anniversary at the end of the month.

This year, rather than spend money on gifts neither one of us want/need, I asked KB for a change in plans. Rather than getting each other individual birthday and anniversary gifts, I wanted to buy one gift for the both of us to enjoy.

Luckily, even though she had no idea what I had up my sleeve, KB agreed.

And so I reached out to my good friend and old college pal Jason “McFly” Kincaid. I wanted to commission him to create an original piece of artwork for us, but the subject matter needed some very clear explanation.

“I’d like Mr. Fabulous sitting in a chair wearing a robe and slippers as if she were Hugh Hefner,” I explained. “And then I want Meatshake and Heisenberg standing behind her wearing suits and looking badass, as if they were her muscle.”

Once McFly stopped laughing at how ridiculous it all was, he asked me to send over some photo reference. A little less than a month ago, I did just that. Yesterday, we came back from Florida to this:

"The Beast Trio" by Jason "McFly" Kincaid!

Mr. Fabulous was looking dapper…

…Meatshake was looking as if she weren’t to be fucked with…

Meatshake by Jason "McFly" Kincaid!

…and Heisenberg was looking oblivious.

Heisenberg by Jason "McFly" Kincaid!

That is to say: Spot. Fucking. On.

These crappy photos don’t do the piece (which measures around 15″ x 20″) justice, so if you’re lucky you just might get to see it in person someday.

Jason is an amazing illustrator; I feel lucky to be his friend, and now own one of his originals. Check out more of his work here, and then hire him to create your own original badass artwork. Your walls are looking pretty bare, aren’t they?

So glad KB agreed,

It's a crosswalk! Not a parking spot for assholes!

I seriously think if someone does this, pedestrians should be allowed to walk over the hood or roof of their car. With cleats on.

This town is full of them,

it doesn’t take long for someone to deliver.

Alabaman Minnie Mouse by Laura Schmidt!

Thanks to my good friend Laura Schmidt for stepping up to the plate!

Let’s try for a Minnesotan Minnie Mouse next,

Back when I was living in Columbus, Ohio my friends and I started a quote wall. Whenever a bit of brilliance (or otherwise) poured out of someone’s mouth, somebody would yell “Quote!” thus nominating it for Quote Board status. The quote then had to be seconded by someone (it almost always was), and then it would be written down to be forever immortalized on the Quote Board.

This is the modern day equivalent of that classic piece of my past.

QUOTE BOARD:

“I love my grandma so much!”

- Random Passing Guy in the Magic Kingdom, 9/13/14

Seriously wondering how he feels about his grandpa,

-Shady

PS: Though not an official quote, KB’s creepy chant of “Poop and crap and poop and crap and poop and…” was the most quoted… well, quote of the entire trip.
