This is in front of the clinic off of Greenville Avenue in Dallas. I had to find another way back to my office after lunch because there are around 150-200 people outside of the clinic protesting it. The church across the street’s parking lot is completely full and even has a bus in it, so I’m led to believe that people are literally being bused in to protest the clinic during their business hours.

Normally, it’s just 2 old people that I give the finger to every morning. They even started writing my full name on signs, since I’ve been giving them the finger almost every day for over half a decade.

Today, however, there are cops there shutting down lanes of the road. Traffic is snaked for at least half a mile one direction. Both sides of the road are packed with people, including a lot of adolescents and teens like the one who’s public twitter I found this on.

Imagine if this happened when you showed up for your appointment. Fuck, imagine if it was a wellness checkup at your primary care doctor.

People are strange.

Can someone please make some Law and Order SVU, Ingrid Michaelson, and Taylor Swift fan fiction and then tattoo it on my chest? Thanks.

About 6 years ago, I went to a concert for my roommate’s band at the old Hard Rock in Dallas.  There, I grabbed a table with a friend I knew casually from a local sports bar and his then girlfriend, Lauren.  Nearly 6 years later, that friend was one of the groomsmen in my wedding and Lauren was among the center ring of our group of friends still living in the city.  We went to each parties together, baseball games together, and of course, graded trivia together at that same local sports bar that brought us all together.  Seldom a week went by in the last 6 years when I didn’t spend time with Lauren.

This past weekend, we lost Lauren to cancer at 28 years old.  It still doesn’t seem real that our friend from Nebraska who designed cheerleading outfits for colleges is gone.  I try to find a way to tell everyone how angry, sad, and confused I am about this, but the only thing I can say over and over again is that this just fucking sucks.

[Cancer] is a petty, ugly illness and we’ll not dignify it by speaking of it unless absolutely necessary." - Dr. Cox, Scrubs S1E23

I’ll miss you forever, Lauren.

It still shocks me just how young Lauren was when we lost her. I am now 28, the same age that Lauren was when she finally died after getting cancer for the 3rd or 4th time.

Today is Lauren’s 30th birthday. I can’t believe that she didn’t see her 30th birthday.

Happy 30th, girl. I hope shit is cool wherever you are.

It took this guy 12 minutes to eat the Choomongous Korean barbeque sandwich. So, at least I know the time that I have to beat the next time I’m at a Rangers game.

♫ “Now I must make my best of the only way home
Molly deals only in stone
I’m lost on the midway, I’m reckless in your eyes
Just give me a couple more throws
I’ll dare you to dine with the cross-legged knight
Dare me to jump and I will
I’ll fall from your grace
But I’ll never let go of your hand
I’ll never let go of your hand”

I said “how much?” and he said “fo free” and I said “sure.”

No, for real, I was just given all of this beer for free from a craft friend. Highlights include Founders All Day IPA, Brooklyn Local 2, a legit Belgian Dubbel, Real Ale Sisyphus, North Coast Rasputin, and many, many more.

I may stroke out by the time I finish posting this.

This is a picture of my friend Johnny watching his little brother Mike’s MLB debut pitching for the Arizona Diamondbacks last night. It might be my favorite baseball picture ever. You can actually feel his pride and joy just by looking at that smile.

Mike starts for the DBacks this Saturday.

So, something that Shannon and I do for fun now that we’re in our late 20’s and super boring, is watch the worst sitcoms that are in syndication on random channels in Dallas.  This evolved from our game of watching How I Met Your Mother and seeing who laughed first. And then we discovered the show Rules of Engagement.

Just as they say that Family Guy is the Simpsons after a 6 pack, Rules of Engagement is How I Met Your Mother after a 30 rack of Keystone. Seriously, this show is awful and we still manage to watch at least 3 syndicated episodes a week.

One of the random “jokes” that we’ve come to love is the above character that somehow decides that the 4 year anniversary gift is a tub of popcorn with 4 different flavors in it. Yes, the popcorn anniversary.  This is a joke in the episode mentioned for maybe 2 scenes, as only to explain why the character is eating popcorn for the rest of the episode. It makes no sense.

After work today, I’m driving to a small store in Richardson to buy 4 different flavors of popcorn for Shannon and I to share. On this day 4 years ago, we officially started dating when I made out with her in front of a bar that was supposed to have karaoke in it, but instead only served as a mini-dance party while I talked fantasy baseball with her co-worker. This is our popcorn anniversary.

Happy popcorn anniversary, shanaynay
