RIP Scott, the iPhone 5 -- My best friend

On September 2, 2014, at approximately 11:14PM, in Wildwood Crest NJ, I dropped Scott, my iPhone. I dont have a case because im cheap.  I have dropped it many many times before and never ever had issues ---- HOWEVER, on this 1 particular evening, after a few beers after the kids were passed out and i was playing 500 rummy with the wife while laughing and talking about memories passed, i dropped my phone flat on the main screen.  As I picked it up i noticed the glass peeling back and shattered into tiny little pieces - like my soul.   

It is now day 5 and I have lost Scott, my best friend.  I realized that during our time together we have experienced a lifetime of love and happiness.  I could not be more happy with a friend like Scott.  He was everything to me. 

When I needed to check out the weather in Iceland,  Scott was there.  When I needed to check out the latest nude pics of Scarlett Johannson, Scott was there.  When I needed to get on Netflix in a hurry, while my oldest daughter Ava was beginning to have a stage 5 temper tantrum in the middle of dinner in a 3 star restaraunt that we were able to find on Yelp, Scott was there for both.  When I needed a quick laugh to get me through my day and read certain 'not funny' people's statuses on facebook, Scott was there.  When i needed to look up very important shit like 'Should the toilet paper be in front or behind' or 'What are Barbie's measurements' or 'Is it too flashy to wear a pocket square AND a tie clip', Scott was there.  When i needed to immediately google the latest hack of nude pics that have surfaced on the internet of famous celebs like Jennifer Lawrence and Cameron Diaz, Scott was there... and boy was he there for that.  

Scott was always there for me.  He was like the dog i never had.  The wife i always wanted.  The child that always made me smile.  He was my best friend and i will love him forever.  

RIP Scott, the iPhone5

  1. Have you tried to get "Scott" checked out? Maybe the screen and/or LCD could be replaced. If you're not into upgrading to the just-announced latest model, you could try out options to resurrect Scott. Though if you're considering upgrading anyways, then it's really time to let go. Either option you choose, I hope that it's for the best!

My Justin Timberlake Experience .. and my shameful beer snob status

I have seen some great legends live in concert over the years.  Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, One Direction - to name a few.  But one in particular - Mr Justin Timberlake aka Justin Bart or JB as he goes by - was one for the ages. 

I got to enjoy this spectacular human with my beard wife Rose last night at the Prudential Center, in the city of dreams, Newark NJ.

The Christmas Glitter Bomb

Its that time of year again.  A time when people and family members that you haven't talked to, well, since last Christmas, reach out with open arms and send you their annual Christmas card.  We took part this year as we now have a newborn.  We both felt obliged to show off our little one to everyone on our wedding list and beyond.  It felt nice.  It's more of a hey-look-how-cute-our-kid-is behind a Merry Christmas message.  Regardless, our card was a simple photo that did NOT have a surprise waiting as you opened up the envelope. A surprise that jumps out at you and says "SURPRISEEEEEE!!!oh and merry christmas"  I'm talking about the glitter bomb.  You all know who you are.  

The Perineal Massage..

My wife is approaching her 37th week of pregnancy.  Apparently, in your 37th week you are supposed to begin massaging your perineum.  "What's a perineum", you asked as so did i?  The perineum is basically the taint.  "Ahhhh.. ok.  I get it.  But massage it??", is what i asked.  Yes, massaging it helps with the pain when the baby crowns during childbirth.  "So just rub it or sumthin?" (in Chip Chipperson voice .. Opie and Anthony fans anyone??)  Not quite.. 
Here are the instructions on how to successfully massage your perineum:
