This is an extremely #firstworldproblem, but it’s kind of crappy of Apple to start AppleCare coverage on a product I haven’t received yet.

Legendary World War II B-29 Pilot, Retired U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Thomas Robert “Bob” Vaucher Dies at 102. www.aopa.org/news-and-…

(Thanks to @ReneeLeonardKe1 on Twitter for posting about the story.)

No Country for Old Men is on one of the Showtimes, and that’s way more entertaining than anything being shown at halftime for the Super Bowl.

You know, if I were a betting man, a horrendous defensive holding call on a Tom Brady tip-drill interception that keeps a drive alive might have me thinking some folks were in the tank for a Bucs win, considering all the potential history being made should Tampa Bay prevail.

Hey look, Tony Romo finally made it to a Super Bowl!

This is one of those amusing regional colloquialisms I shall never tire of, having grown up in south Louisiana where they are called what they are: liquor stores. twitter.com/impudente…

Ever since I learned about Electric Jesus (@ejesusfilm)–and thanks for that, @tonywoodlief–easily once a week seeing something about the movie makes me think of this song: youtu.be/yGhUo8d9_…

Dale Thompson’s vocals absolutely KILL.

Great mail week. My @ejesusfilm roadie shirt arrived (when’s the tour start, guys?) and today from Sweden landed two copies of the Metal Bible. A perfect pairing.

Getting mail from overseas will never get old.

Thirty-five years ago today, we lost the Challenger and its crew. I stood in the library between classes at my high school, mouth agape, watching the footage with several classmates.

“Roger, go at throttle up” forever seared into our memory. #totouchthefaceofGod

There’s a new episode of The Empowered Parent Podcast out today, and we’re going over the basics of attachment.

I could be watching the @DallasStars season opener, but since @FOXSportsSW and @FrontierCorp can’t play nice with one another…

Unexpected find at the used bookstore yesterday. I don’t think I’ve read the original trilogy since high school. Maybe one other time, but it’s been at least two decades if so. I’ve never read books 4 and 5.

Thanks to my 12 year-old, I finally found a way to actually enjoy The Last Jedi. youtu.be/VHevGQiu6…

The Legacy has landed.

Now switching from my Kickstarter-backer electronic copy to the dead-tree edition.

This landed at our house today, so laissez les bons temps rouler!

You know, the more I think about it, the more genius that Nickelodeon-NFL partnership for the Saints-Bears game was. What better city in America for fun wackiness than the Big Easy? I wonder how many new Saints fans #WhoDat nation has gotten as a result.

So while I fully expect the road to glory to be rocky, what if it’s not fulfilling? Is that actionable, attorneys? This looks like a written promise from Panda, after all.

“Every Rose Has Its Thorn” came on in the restaurant. I ask my bride who sings it.

Her first guess: Guns N’ Roses.

Her second guess: Bon Jovi

The 20-something waiter got it right in one try. LIKE MY WIFE, he had also seen Poison in concert in the past few years.

There’s a new episode of the Sneaky Good Podcast out! www.andthevalleyshook.com/2021/1/10…

I’m not sure who needs to hear this, but the Tillamook Smoked Medium Cheddar Cheese is pretty great.

Like Elon Musk, I prefer Signal over any other messaging service out there. www.digitaltrends.com/news/elon…

A late Christmas present arrived from across the pond today: my new @WytchHazelBand shirt!

Ford vs Ferrari is such a great movie.

It has vaulted into my can-watch-any-time-it’s-on-no-matter-at-what-point-of-the-story-I-find-it category. Bale is just terrific as Miles as husband, father, engineer, and driver.

Today’s my Twitterversary, fourteen years. My Twitter account is older than two of my children, and just three years younger than my oldest. My Twitter account is a freshman in high school.

Which, let’s be honest, is pretty much what the majority of those on Twitter act like.
