To me the 4th of July is not about fireworks, it is about the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest. Every year, I can’t wait to see how many wieners they down in 10 minutes. This year was one of the most exciting ones so far because Joey Chestnut and Matt Stonie were neck and neck and the whole time. But then in the final minute, the now 8 time champ, took the lead and downed a total of 61 hot dogs. That is 8 less than year, but all that matters it was 5 more than Stonie. So even though he didn’t break the record he set last year for how many hot dogs he ate, he did set the record for most consecutive wins for the contest.
Will he be able to do it 9 years in a row? We will just have to wait until next year to find out.
But until then, celebrate being an American today by having a hot dog. Just try to eat a few less than Joey Chestnut.
Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful fathers out there. Who were there to hold us when we needed to be held. To listen to us when we needed someone to talk to. To give us advice when we really needed it. And for always being you!
Love you dad! The best father in the whole world!
It is Friday the 13th and what better way to honor it but to watch 20 minutes of kills from the horror franchise of the same name. Since we are in Mercury Retrograde and there’s a full moon today, it is better to stay in and watch this then go out and face whatever horrors might come your way on this unlucky day.
BTW I wish they still made horror movies like this today. I miss cheesey slasher flicks like this so much.
Thank you to all the Mothers out there who changed our diapers, held us until we stopped crying, made us our favorite meals whenever we wanted them, made our cuts hurt less, helped us with our homework, got us through breakups and most importantly for being you!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful mothers out there!
Have a Happy Easter and try not to OD on Chocolate Bunnies, Cadbury Creme Eggs and Peeps today!
And may you find all the eggs in your Easter Egg Hunt. Nothing is worse than the smell of that lost rotten egg that no one found.
The Seder just got a whole lot easier to sit through because that is several hours that you won’t be able to listen to Blau Bright Productions‘ version of Frozen’s Let It Go and Katy Perry’s Roar. That is unless you want to torture your family with these videos.
Actually, I kind of like these parodies. I guess I had a little too much of the Manischewitz. Oy!
Happy Passover to those who celebrate it!
Even though I grew up in NYC, I have to admit we have nothing on Chicago when it comes to celebrating St Patrick’s Day. One of the things they are most known for is turning their lake green for the day. Well up until today I always thought that Leprechauns did it, but now we are seeing how it is really done with this awesome time lapse video by Peter Tsai. Seriously how blimey cool is that?
One mystery solved, now I just have to figure out how they turn my beer green for the holiday.
On that note, have a happy St Patty’s Day and party responsibly.
Astronaut Karen Nyberg, who is back on Earth, Tweeted this picture of “A Valentine from Earth” and I thought it was the perfect way to wish all of you a Happy Valentine’s Day!
Remember to use a condom because the initials for today’s holiday are VD and you don’t want to catch one!

Party like it’s 2014 in 2013!
Remember don’t drink and drive because tonight is when all the amateurs are out doing it. And if you have had too much to drink, take 2 aspirins before you go to sleep because it will help in the morning.
