A Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend of Epic Intergalactic Awesome. Get on that, runDisney.

Not gonna lie. I was the teeniest bit disappointed when runDisney announced the new The Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend. Not because the concept isn’t cool. I mean, who doesn’t want to wear giant green Hulk hands and run down Main Street U.S.A. yelling “SMASH THE HALF! SMASH THE HALF!” I was just hoping that they’d choose a different galaxy where people use lightsabers… Read more →

Peppa Pigapalooza. It’s become an accurate representation of my life.

We live in dark times, friends. The evils of adorable across-the-pond pigs and their equally adorable animal friends have my preschooler completely enamored to the point that I’m reading Peppa Pig storybooks in a British accent and oinking in various octaves depending on who’s talking. I’m damn good at it too. But here’s the thing. Peppa and her corresponding pig coolness… Read more →

An anti-love letter love letter to my husband. Because it’s the only kind I know how to write.

I wouldn’t consider myself very romantic. Sure, I love love like a hippie loves hemp and skirts made of wheat, but beyond liking my husband’s face a whole lot, I’m allergic to flowers, think Valentine’s Day is sweet if you’re six, and really dislike Facebook statuses that espouse spouses in haiku with a corresponding image that’s been PicMonkeyed into a… Read more →

The Mary Poppins as Doctor Who Time Lord Theory. Makes practically perfect sense.

Ever since the Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Edition came out on Blu-Ray and DVD, we’ve been watching what is obviously an iconic classic over and over again. And singing “Let’s Go Fly A Kite.” And re-enacting “Step In Time.” Again, over and over again. The repeat button has arguably become the most popular button on our remote, as we’re all… Read more →

The most epic Disney beards ever. You’re welcome.

Ah, beards. They’re like free-range face hugs, organic and oftentimes erratic, while at the same time, commanding respect with gentle gravitas. And with Abraham Lincoln’s birthday — the venerable creator of the iconic beard-no-mustache-look — happening this month, there’s no better time to pay tribute to extraordinary Disney beards. Facial hair can take a regular naked man face and turn… Read more →

#DAYOFLIGHT: Bringing depression out of the dark.

Bottled sunshine. Being called it is one of the best compliments I’ve ever received, and my most favorite. It reminds me that inner light shines through suffocating darkness, and that depression is something I can talk about. Because I never have before. I’ve struggled with it for almost two decades, yet never said a word within the blogosphere. And that’s about… Read more →
