Rubber Ducky Day

Today was National Rubber Ducky Day. We only have another half hour to celebrate, so get going.

Bubble Bath Day

I just found out that today is National Bubble Bath Day. How fun is that?!

Last night I stayed at work until 2:30 AM and I’m so exhausted that my heart has been pounding all day! The fact that it’s Bubble Bath Day is impeccable timing. I can’t think of anything more lovely than a hot bubble bath with some yogurt bubble tea and some bubbly Dolly Parton in the background. And the best part is that I just cleaned my bathtub!

Now if I could just get my hands on some sexy bubble bath.

Oh, there are more good pics from this guy here.

Winter Solstice

I love the shortest day of the year, only because it means the days are going to start getting longer! I read in National Geographic that the oceans are still retaining heat from summer and so that’s why today isn’t the coldest day of the year. In a month or two, look out!

I can’t wait for summer solstice, when everone in Seattle gets naked.

Top 5 Favorite Holiday Albums

Every year I soothe myself from the annoying news stories of holiday stampedes by breaking out these favorite albums. In all honesty, sometimes I just listen to them to listen.

1. Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers: Once Upon a Christmas
Dolly’s my girl! And this album is the best!

2. Sufjan Stevens: Songs for Christmas
There are so many fun new holiday songs on this 5 disc holiday extravaganza. My favorites are “Get Behind Me, Santa!” and “Come On! Let’s Boogey to the Elf Dance!” Sufjan’s renditions of “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing” and “Silent Night” are also nice.

3. The Carpenters: Christmas Portrait
Ever since I was a boy, I listened to The Carpenters’ holiday album. Karen Carpenter is amazing. I mourn her every Christmas, because this album is butter and I wish we could have had her around longer.

4. John Denver & The Muppets: A Christmas Together
This album is hands down my favorite childhood collection of holiday music, and I still love it. The real heroes of this album are Miss Piggy and Janice, my favorite Muppet bitches.

5. Mariah Carey: Merry Christmas
One word: damn.

Decorating for the Holidays

I finally decorated my Christmas tree (bush, shrub… whatever) today. Taylor made the cloud and rainbow ornaments as well as the felt garland. Jonathan helped by making a felt bird and I made a felt airplane. However, my Betty White and Estelle Getty ornaments felt right at home in the tree. I’m still working on Bea and Rue. Christmas could never be Christmas with those dear friends.

So festive!

Monkey Day

I’m not kidding; December 14th is Monkey Day. According to the official website, Monkey Day is a day to “scream like a monkey and throw feces at whomever you choose.” Please be on the lookout, people! I don’t want anyone I know getting hit with feces.

Monkey Day was also created to generate animal rights awareness and contribute to actual organizations. Attached are some of my favorite monkeys:

Human Rights Day

Happy Human Rights Day everyone. Please don’t ever be intolerant, racist, sexist, homophobic, et al. But especially today.

National Brownie Day

Happy Brownie Day everyone! No matter how you like ‘em!

National Cotton Candy Day

If you need an excuse to gorge on cotton candy, today is the day. Australians call it “fairy floss.” CUTE!

Happy Cotton Candy Day, everyone. I’ll let you know when it’s National Root Canal Day.

Wear Brown Shoes Day

Today is Wear Brown Shoes Day. I hope we can all find time to pay tribute to our brown shoes and the brown shoes that have gone on before us. And let us also give thanks to the wonderful brown shoes in the sky that give us so much.

Hanksgiving 09

Thanksgiving 2009 was one of my all-time favorites. I cooked my first turkey and it turned out perfectly. However, I’m not one for photographing my food. Most of the time the food appears to be excessively moist and glistens strangely.

As you can see my friend Megan’s dog Hank, on the other hand, was nothing but a cute bundle of sexiness on the floor.
