My God, less than a week old and she’s already making the “I can’t believe the Browns called for a five-yard out on third-and-seven” face. Good to see that kid has some serious Cleveland in her.

Congratulations, you magnificent bastard.

I don’t know, man. These people and their guns. I hate guns. Get a sword. Nobody messes with someone holding a sword. Well, except Indiana Jones.

Sigh. WE DON’T. I repeat: I have been to many gun shows in Ohio where it is easy and legal to buy a gun with no background check or even showing an I.D. There is no Federal legislation regulating private sales at gun shows, it is left up to the states. There are a dozen (I believe) with laws similar to Ohio, making it possible for absolutely anyone to buy a gun with no check whatsoever. This is a fact.

100% correct. Gun shows in Ohio have a slightly creepy feel to them, due to the clientele of both seller and buyer (Only amplified when you see an ad for one of them on late-night broadcast tv…usually shot on video. Ugh.)
My dad had an extensive and valuable gun collection. My mother and I are both keeping the pieces that are ours (yes, Dad introduced a petite city girl to sporting clays almost 40 years ago) that we want for use/protection…but the rest is kind of a nightmare to sell off. It has been surprisingly hard to find a fair dealer to help move it in the age of Newtown.

The trade off is that I will be able to hopefully sleep well knowing that someone has done their due diligence on not selling to a crazy.

I fucking love Pat Benatar, and am not ashamed to admit it. Sam, you know she’s married to a a guy (also her guitarist, they’ve been together virtually since they both started) from Parma, right? They come through town all the time.

Her book is a seriously good read about the glam life AND the real life of being a rock star/wife/mom on the road.

Headed to Cbus

Not for rivalry weekend, just overnight to visit some family and do some shopping. And of course, there will be lunch at Schmidt’s in German Village, Book Loft to follow.

Reason #319,452 that I love my mom

Took her to see Skyfall the other day on my day off. We’re running late, and I grab the tickets (now $9.50 each, and I realize I’m not going to get any sympathy from my readers on the coasts). I boogie toward the theater as I want to miss as little, even of trailers, as possible. She heads for the concession stand.

Mom: Do you want popcorn? I want some popcorn.

Me: Don’t do it. I don’t really eat at the theater, and trust me: Don’t do it.

Five minutes later, she finds our seats…

Mom: Why the hell didn’t you tell me how much it was going to cost?

Me: I tried. What were you expecting, Cinema 20 prices? (More on Cinema 20 in a later post.) 

Mom: Well, not quite, but not this expensive. How much do you think this (holds up small popcorn) cost me?

Me: I dunno. 5 bucks?

It was 6.

Anyway, trailers had been playing, and up pops the Miramax/Weinstein/whateverthey’recallingthemselvesthesedays logo and I’m like, “Here we go. I can’t wait for this”

Mom: What’s this?

Me: Just wait. You’ll see.

One minute more of trailer, during a superzoom on Dicaprio-

Mom: Oh, hell yes! When does this come out?

I’m not ashamed to admit that it wasn’t my first go-round seeing it, but my mom was hip enough to go see Kill Bill with me in a theater.

This man knows what is up.

Bow at the altar, people. I bought a 3000 piece box of individual serving packages to take to other ballparks with me.

Who do you think sent it to him? (Which I was supposed to do 3 years ago- I’m an asshole.)

I keep waiting for him to post pics of the rest of the stuff in the box. It was a good old-fashioned Cleveland care package, best of Northeast Ohio.
