Those of you who didn’t follow the Star Wars universe after Return of the Jedi, outside all the movies, have NO idea how huge Chapter 9 of #TheMandalorian really is. My inner 12 year-old is enormously happy right now.

Off to a great start, just like the first season.


Work shift ended nearly 20 minutes ago. Hockey board meeting in about 10 minutes. Still need to get dinner after that. Then there are the children to deal with.

So much standing between me and the new season of #TheMandalorian. But what is life without struggle?


“Reacher said nothing.”

Yet someone has done gone and ticked him off in Lee and Andrew Child’s latest, The Sentinel. ๐Ÿ“š #amreading

While I’m posting about my podcasts: I never noted the completion of the John Wick episodes from the @bigfatgeekpod, so here’s Chapter 3!

On the latest episode of The Empowered Parent Podcast, we talk about how trauma can impact children and how parents can show compassion and care to help love children through it.

Drunk history, cooking shows, and the political machinations of Westeros are among the topics discussed in the latest Sneaky Good Podcast. Oh, and we talk about #LSU and college football, too.

“I am an Uighur who faced Chinaโ€™s concentration camps. This is my story.”…

If you can’t have fun with this insanity, what’s the point?

The @WizKhalifa Oreos commercial with his son Sebastian is utterly adorable.

I like this uniform combination the Cardinals are wearing tonight. That’s a nice black jersey setup. #SEAvsAZ

Home from date night, and now time to go to work: have to watch the @LSUfootball game I recorded so I’m ready for the next @SneakyGoodPod recording. Even if I don’t talk much, it helps to know what the heck the rest of the crew is talking about.

I honestly cannot tell you how many times I have watched The Princess Bride over the years, but tonight was the first time I saw it drive-in theater-style. Bonus: it was date night with my own princess bride.

Is it really a behind the scenes shot of Tapestry Conference 2020 prep if I’m still in front of the camera?

You know, I’m starting to get the idea the problems with the Dallas Cowboys might have nothing to do with who is at quarterback…

We have a new episode of The Empowered Parent Podcast out, talking about the importance of self care and ways to avoid burnout.

So many memories of Tab, of my mom drinking it in the days before Diet Coke, of loading cases of bottles โ€“ yes, actual glass bottles โ€“ into the soda machine at church……

So the first time we met up to watch an Apple event together, @tapbot_paul gave me this. I haven’t been able to wear it until now. ๐Ÿ˜

Who can tell me what this is from?

@bekindtobignate, @idomeandallas, and @nealstephenson aren’t allowed to play.

And it’s like I’m 13 all over again.

Grateful for @Amazon delivery notifications that informed me a @USPSHelp driver decided to leave a package outside a closed business. What if this had been something much more valuable than toilet paper?

Since I didnโ€™t really have time to do it during the week with work and all, I have muted the Arkansas-Auburn game so I can listen to the Van Halen catalog and mourn the loss of Eddie.

Scrolling through the TiVo program guide I mistakenly read “Stihl Timbersports Series” as “Sith Timbersports Series” and I got really excited for a microsecond.
