If your name is Sarah, Liz or Jenny, then I automatically like you more based on my previous experience with those names.
I think the cashier at Sephora tried to make fun...
When she said, “Oh. You’re paying cash. I don’t see many people paying cash anymore.” Opening the door to many possible snarky responses. I kept my mouth shut though. And ultimately the joke was on her. When she struggled for over a minute to count $2.68 in change.
First World Problem
I wish there were a way to delete drunken texts, KiKs and private messages. Why are only the public messages deletable?
My first video, in which I discuss important matters of pronunciation.
Pie Eating Contest
Aussie pies are meat pies. They’re like a chicken pot pie except with beef. I had a southwest veggie pie, though, since I’m a vegetarian. I was a little nervous.

Daughter: (grinning) It's not going to be a rough week anymore!
The origin of my name is briefly explained in my Twitter bio, but here’s the full story. I had a Twitter account and started following some interesting people who made silly and dirty jokes. After awhile, I thought to myself, “Hey that look’s like fun. I want to do that too.” My wife often doesn’t share my sense of humor. Whenever I tell silly or dirty jokes, she...
I love the fact that my kids think it’s completely normal when I beatbox in the car or around the house. I just wish they’d join in sometime.
