Weekly Wednesday Wisdom: Say something

Hey Miloh, let me start by saying I'm a bit disappointed with you. Yesterday you totally dropped the ball in meeting a cute girl.

Sure she was about three and a half times your age, which could have been intimidating, but dude...she was totally interested in you. I realize you gave her the Miloh "how you doing" eyes but you need to follow that up with something. Some kind of line, an opener, whatever but just say something.

And that's my wisdom: Say something. Say something smart. Say something clever. Say something honest. Say Something scary. Say something painful. Say something meaningful. Say Anything. (I totally didn't plagiarize that*.)

I won't be able to pass along any good lines to pick up women...although I did pass along some bad ones.

However the one thing I can pass along is that if you say nothing you will get nowhere.

And, to fully understand the advice I'll force you to watch Say Anything because not only was it a great "semi-awkward, yet charming, guy gets the girl" movie but the main character Llyod Dobler was ahead of his time. He said "Kick Boxing. Sport of the future." And while kickboxing alone isn't super popular MME is...which is semi close-ish.. So all the folks who were thinking Llyod was a fool...looks like you were wrong-ish.

I'll also make you watch The Graduate, my roommates freshman year of college made me watch it when I liked a girl but hadn't yet talked to her. That one is a 'semi-awkward guy gets the girl' movie. I omitted  'charming' because Dustin Hoffman as Ben Braddock...not so charming.

Last I'll give you one extra piece of advice: There is a super short window of time that you will be able to make eyes with a girl, then try to feed a Cheerio to your mom (but miss her mouth), and still have the girl interested in you. That window is closing really fast...so think about taking that out of your repertoire.

Ladies and gentlemen...Llyod Dobler.



*OK, maybe not totally

Another guest post

I did a little guest post a bit ago for mom-nom.com, the post is below the original pre-amble.

If you head to Mom-nom.com you can see a little guest post I wrote. It's about being a daddy blogger in the midst of a bunch of mommy bloggers.

The post is kicking off Tiffany's new site. It used to be called Feels Like Home but then some other blogger felt that she owned the name because she was thinking about to registering the name...even though really the name comes from a song. And I think it's pretty ridiculous that the other woman threatened a law suit because of this.

And that BS and some other twitter high school antics lead me to one of my greatest literary feats...a little rant on twitter.

The image is below, if you click on it you can read the whole thing...it goes from the bottom up. A little warning if you read it...there may be an f-bomb or 20...and now it's in the Library of Congress...awesome.




Here's the post from Mom-nom.comWhen Tiffany asked me to do a…

My hundredth post: seriously a clips post?

In my last post I mentioned I was working on getting some celebs for this post. I was in talks with the quarterback of the Saints whatever his name is...I'm sure I could look it up. I was also trying to get Conan...those talks were going really well but then NBC squashed it. There were more but the moral is it's just me.

So I thought I'd do a clips post to show my journey from dude who was scared of kids to dad. If you're new to my blog this will be a CliffsNotes version of what you missed. If you've been checking it out for awhile think of this as a best of. And since a blog can't work like a TV show if you want to get the full clip show experience you'll have to click through to the posts...but this will give you the gist.

In the beginning...Staci and I wanted to have a child but we both had totally different experience with kids. Kids have always been magically attracted to her...which is probably why she is so great at her career as a Montessori teacher…

Update post

An unexpected side affect of writing this blog is that I was introduced to the world of baby blogs. Totally didn't expect it, but since most of my readers are pregnant women or moms it makes sense.

There is some great stuff out there. One of the blogs I'm digging is the818.com by Morgan. Great, real look at pregnancy with some cool design stuff too.

She does a weekly update on what's going on with her and her pregnancy. All those questions that folks would ask.

But since men aren't the ones doing the hard work no one asks us what's up with us.

I thought it would be fun to answer her update questions from a male point of view. So here goes:


How far along? Officially 22 weeks and 4 days, but since I know a little more about math and the female body than every doctor I know that it's really closer to 20.

Total weight gain/loss: Down 3 pounds...sorry.

Stretch marks? I always had these little ones on my ankles...I think they are from when I grew to a enormous 5'6&q…
