A Blogger’s Best Friend

We almost adopted a cat recently. We were planning to wait until we get a house, but while shopping for our parents’ pets, we saw this certain cat. He was 9 years old and was given up by his previous owners simply because they had a kid and didn’t want to take care of both.


I Hope You Brought Frankincense And Myrrh

Because, I’m bringing the mutha effin’ gold, suckas!

Hopefully one of many hit leader-ings

Like this one, and a bunch more that you’re about to see.

I opened two boxes of the Topps Minis (plenty still available for trade), and even though I got about 10 of the #/61 parallels, none of them were […]

Have A Big Merry Hurt-Mas!

Brian sent over a couple cards this summer either as his part of a trade or as another one of his random gifts. I […]

I Did (Part Of) It All By Myself!

Every year (read “both”), I buy a few handfuls of packs to give me a head start and get the doubles pile ready […]

If I Were To Collect: St. Louis Cardinals Edition

(The fourth in a series: I’m picking one player that I associate with a team (whether they spent the majority of their career there or not) that I would strongly consider adding to my official want lists. They may not always be superstars, or the most popular, and honestly they may not always be my […]

Keeping Things Small

The good news is that I’m back. I have a new laptop to replace my randomly shutting down desktop and I think it’s all set up to handle what I need it to do. I also am 2 weeks into my new job working from home. I currently have tons and tons of extra time […]
