Blast Off

I have been looking forward to this day all month. It’s Bomb Pop Day. How delicious!!! I couldn’t more pleased. I went to the store and came away with these…


I got a little nervous at the grocery store. I didn’t immediately see the bomb pops. I was instantly fearful that the metropolis of Bartlesville was sold out of bomb pops. Maybe everyone was trying to get their celebration on? Maybe my celebratory ways are rubbing off? Doubt it. But I found them! And I’ve had two.



It was a delightfully patriotic treat(s). I will have to say, the red is the best of the three flavors. I’m always sad when I finish the red level. And you have to eat bomb pops so fast, because by the time you get to the blue it’s so melty. But it was a great celebration. Especially because 4th of July is coming up.

You should start getting really excited for what I’m going to wear for the 4th. You will not be disappointed. I plan on looking like the most patriotic person. If you feel like you too will be dressed to impress please send me a picture of your holiday gear. You can tweet me your picture @_celebrationist or you can email me at If your pictures rule I’ll post them right here for all of the approximate 170 people that read this daily to see.

I love the 4th of July. It’s in my top three favorite holidays, and I celebrate a lot of holidays.


Bomb pops bursting in air.

PS: On an unrelated note, my family is going to dinner and we are listening to music together on the way. You know, just the family faves, including but not limited to, Eminem, Lil Jon, Soulja Boy, TI and Flo Rida. I have fun people.

PPS: I just looked at that picture of myself with the bomb pop. I am sorry if I scared your children with my Pterodactyl looking neck. I love that silent P.

Cameras are neat.

I like cameras. They are seemingly the best and worst part of this generation. On one hand you can capture anything! On the other hand it can end up on Facebook. I have a camera that I like very much. It is a cool little Sony. Rotating viewfinder. Other cool things. It’s just a delight.

And in honor of camera day, I watched Inception for the second time. HBO has been on an Inception kick. If you haven’t seen it you need to watch it. And then watch it again, because I’m quite certain you won’t really know what’s going on.

But there is one scene, filmed in a hallway, where gravity shifts in all directions. It is one of the coolest scenes in a movie. It’s probably one of my favorite scenes in a movie. I keep a mental list of movie scenes that I love. Just off the top of my head, Ferris Bueller the parade scene, Top Gun the volleyball scene, Star Wars the scene where Leia says I love you and Hans says I know, American Beauty the scene with the plastic bag and when Kevin Spacey is driving in his car, Back to the Future when Marty pretends to be an alien, Princess Bride scene in the fire swamp, Bridesmaids in the dress shop, 500 Days of Summer in Ikea and the last scene of Fast Five. Oh wait, Fast Five was the worst.

That was a fairly extensive list. And fun fact, they were all filmed with a camera!

I remember the days when I would have a disposable and take pictures of nonsense and beg my mom to get them developed. Those were the days. Pre-digital camera. When 26 pictures were all you got. That’s all I’ve got.


I’m scared of ROUSs

Happy Hands Club

It’s Handshake Day and I have several to share with you. It was a great day for handshaking. I started thinking of handshakes I was envious of as a child. Two came to mind. The Parent Trap and Boy Meets World.

The video of Parent Trap is of Annie and Martin, her butler. Martin is maybe the best character in that movie. Also, a confession, I thought that Lindsay Lohan was a twin when I saw that movie. I was so boggled when I found out movie magic created two Lindsays.

The video from Boy Meets World is the handshake between Corey and Shawn. They modify it so they will look cool in high school. Boy Meets World is still one of my all time favorite TV shows. I occasionally make BMW references in conversation. I need to have those on DVD. Feel free to gift me those. Enjoy the vids.

I had a really great handshake today. Maybe my most favorite handshake ever.


That is Evie Jane Powell. She was born on Sunday. She is the youngest human I know. I got to hold her for a few hours tonight and I just love her. She is the sweetest little nugget. I’d say handshake day was an incredible success.


And I said to myself, “Kyle.” “Kyle?” “That’s what I call myself.”
