More like the AWESOMEST place on Earth!

Ohhh yeah… brother!

Pretty sweet costumes, especially for a middle-aged daughter and her slightly-more-than-middle-aged mom.

Still, the best Macho Man costume ever goes to my good buddy Kevin Kittridge who, on the night of our wedding three years ago, braved a brisk fall evening in Chicago wearing nothing more than hot pink underwear and a sequined cape.

Look at the balls on this guy! Literally!

Snap into fucking awesome!

And I like to think I made a pretty good Hogan myself.

So many wrestling costumes, so little time,


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.


“I wanna write some Gobachek fan fiction.”

So long as there is an appearance by Princess Layla,


…because it instantly makes us nostalgic for our childhood.

So when we saw it in the Magic Kingdom last weekend (sans Beth), I immediately texted her. Her reply says it all.

Wish you could've been there, Beth!

Thirty-seven going on seven,


You dirty bear, you.

…or is Winnie the Pooh checking out Marla?

Always on the prowl for honey,


The shorter one also waited around in the bathroom while his friend finished taking a shit. Because, you know... THAT'S not creepy.

Here are three easy steps to do just that:

1. Own a Star Wars character backpack.

2. Own a Darth Vader helmet with Mickey Mouse ears.

3. Walk around Epcot all day long wearing the above two items with your buddy who also is walking around Epcot wearing the very same thing.

The force is… something or other with these two,


Ooo, la la! A skinny and mini Minnie!

…is both skinny and sexy!

I’d hate to see what an Alabaman Minnie Mouse looks like,


PS: But if anyone wants to draw an Alabaman Minnie, I’ll totally post it!

Disney World knuckleheads!

…for the past week with these knuckleheads, so sorry for the delay in updates.

Look for a slew of them soon.

Adjusting back to normal life,


Seven years old!

Never forget,


…we stopped into this amazing little deli called Deli Board, which is owned by Cleveland native Adam Mesnick.

What makes Deli Board so special? Well, first of all, their PICKLEZ ARE THICK! “How thick,” you ask? SO THICK.

For real. THAT thick.

Now, I’ve been laying off non-seafood meat for the past six months or so, but that didn’t stop me from ordering the Ron. Why? Because it’s my dad’s name. Guess who else’s dad’s name is Ron? That’s right, Adam Mesnick, who named the sandwich after his father.

I mean… how could I not?

THE RON! Named after both of our fathers! Or at least one of them.

Finally, Adam treated us to a sample of Deli Board’s tomato polenta soup with truffle cheese. Holy. Shit. Balls. The best, Jerry! The best!

I really don't like when people use "OMG" but, for reals... OMG.

So the next time you find yourself in San Francisco stop into Deli Board and say hello to Cleveland native Adam Mesnick, and be sure to tell him that you heard of him from Milwaukee native Justin Shady by way of his Los Angeles blog.

Oh, and try the food, too. Of course.

Can’t wait to visit again,
