Random Stuff, Part 5: Pete Wentz is Cool

Food Stuff, Part 2: Cauliflower Plant-Based Hot Wings

If I didn’t mention it in most conversations, didn’t Blog about it, and didn’t post about it on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, you probably wouldn’t even know that I’m living a plant-based lifestyle. “Plant-based” is the cool way to say you’re “vegetarian.” And when… Continue Reading “Food Stuff, Part 2: Cauliflower Plant-Based Hot Wings”

Random Stuff, Part 4: Brad Pitt Sucks

Recently I decided I don’t like Brad Pitt. It sucks to say that. Cuz he’s in two of my favorite movies (Fight Club and Ocean’s Eleven). He’s dated some of the most beautiful women ever.

Today, as of writing this, we’re on Day-26 of the Michigan Shelter-in-Place (aka “Stay At Home”).  Michigan kids, in fact, had their last day of school 30-days ago. I know.

Lent, Part 1: Slow Start, Reboot

Here’s what I said I would do for Lent… Fast on Fridays. Meaning, after dinner on Thursday until Saturday breakfast, nothing but coffee, water, or tea. That’s about 35-40 hours of intermittent fasting. Catholics were doing this intermittent fasting thing way before it became… Continue Reading “Lent, Part 1: Slow Start, Reboot”
