“Friendsgiving” is Stupid. We’ve Been Calling it Second Thanksgiving For Almost a Decade. And We Were There First. #StreamTeam

Thanksgiving is for giving thanks. Not giving friends. Sheesh. So I’ve mentioned Second Thanksgiving in the past when I told you about the hematoma on my butt. But I’ve been hearing the term, “friendsgiving,” a lot lately in regards to people throwing these “festive affairs” with cheap wine and instant mashed potatoes. Even the Netflix Stream […]

Quirky Chrissy’s Adult (Not DIRTY Adult – Just Grown-Up Adult You Sicko) Holiday Gift Guide Extravaganza!

Shopping for kiddos is easy. Shopping for grown ups? Not so much. As adults, we tend to buy what we want when we want it. Okay, Brian and I do, anyways. So from November 1 through December 25, Brian is under a strict no-purchase rule, as he has, on more than one occasion, bought what […]

Big Hero 6 Review

Big Hero 6: It’s Hip to be a Square

Science! Tech! Nerds! A year after Disney knocked it out of the park with Frozen, they’re bringing me something just as magical in its very own light. Bringing the Marvel world into animated Disney is a big step, and it worked really well this time around. Big Hero 6 delivers the beginning of a beautiful […]

Loot Crate Review

Gettin’ Geeky With It Throughout the ‘Verse

I am a sucker for all things geeky, nerdy, and surprisy. I flippin’ LOVE surprises. Which is why subscription boxes appeal to me. So when I found Loot Crate, I was all, “OMG! Geeky! Nerdy! Surprisy!” Yes. With that many exclamation points. And yes, I kind of hate exclamation points. But I love Captain Mal. […]

Blue Cheese and Date Spread on Endive

You know how sometimes, you throw a party and plan for certain types of food, and something inevitably goes wrong? I had bacon-wrapped dates on the brain, but sometimes, things don’t turn out as planned. But I had all these dates, and needed to figure out something to do with them. After digging through my […]

Under Pressure

I’ve always been afraid of pressure cookers. Okay, I’ve been afraid of pressure cookers since I discovered their existence when Brian and I first moved into our apartment two years ago. He had one and tried to get me to use it. I laughed it off…in fear. A few months later around St. Patrick’s Day, […]

#PetalumaMade Wine Paired Dinner

Wine-Paired Dinner at Seared Petaluma

I’ve been dreaming of wine and cheese lately. I’m not sure why, since I happen to have a pretty decent stockpile of both wine and cheese in my fridge. But it happens.   Remember back in July when I was all over social media with some of my new blogging buddies telling you how fantastic Petaluma, […]

Why I Wont Shop Thanksgiving

Why I Won’t Shop on Thanksgiving

I’m not going to go into a big rant about stores being open on Thanksgiving this year. Black Thanksgiving is what it is. I know that there are people who do, in fact, benefit from being able to work on Thanksgiving. I do. I get it. I also know that there are people who have […]

Accident prone and injuries - yelling ow!

Ow!

It’s really no big secret that I injure myself…A lot. Like that time I walked head first into a pole…or tripped over an invisible wire…or sprained my knee while skiing, walking, getting ice…And many other heartwarming tales of pain and unintentional self-abuse. What “Ow!” sounds like to Brian, according to me: Mostly, “Ow!” sounds a […]

Santa Shops at Sam's Club

Santa Shops at Sam’s Club

I mean, I’m not surprised, really. With less than 50 shopping days left until one of my favorite holidays on the planet, Santa’s probably already working his butt off. I vaguely remember seeing presents that looked as if they came from Sam’s Club once or twice in my Christmas morning experience… Or Santa’s a procrastinator […]

Even the Pink Fucking Monkey Gets a Vote

Yesterday was Election Day. We has a pretty big race here in Illinois, and I don’t even want to talk about it. Instead, I’ll talk about the very serious vote in our house (holy crap, I can say house) last night. So Brian has picked up this strange habit of not putting the toilet seat […]
