June 14 Trivia Rankings

June 14, 2017

A lovely night for trivia, my Quizlings. We avoided the rain and got some more ice cream courtesy Tomato Jake’s. We met some new folks (and one uber-cute canine), reminisced about 2006 in television and gave one lucky teen a gift for her dad he’ll never forget!

And there was this magnificent moment of celeb awkwardness…

Day of the Dad

June 19, 2015

My dad refused to celebrate Father’s Day. Once I made the mistake of buying him a tie and presenting it to him after dinner. He wasn’t the least bit grateful. In fact, he threw the tie in the garbage disposal and locked me in an old freezer we had out in the garage. To this day, I can’t tie a Windsor knot without balling up into the fetal position and crying.
