Donnie Jalapeno Reigns Supreme! And spunkybean and The Bachelor Recaps

When I leave this world, if there isn’t a patron Saint of Salsa, I hope I’ll be canonized in that category. Why? Because my Donnie Jalapeno salsa is that good. Since about October, I’ve been hammered with requests for it, and since my salsa makes the…

No Regrets

I don’t know what’s more powerful. Fear? Or regret? Or fear of regret (if that’s a thing). It actually all kinda works together. For me, I regret some things I’ve done, but more and more, I’m regretting the things I haven’t done. I regret…

Things I Did: Weekend Writing Wrap-Up

There was a point in my life where I’d have thought a blog entry like this was superfluous, unnecessary, and excessive (just like the two words I used after “superfluous”). I’d have also thought a blog entry like the one you’re about to read…

Things I Did: Signed a Ghost-Writing Client

When I’m not writing about American Idol, The Bachelor and Bachelorette, and Survivor over at spunkybean, I write some other stuff. Once I wrote a concert-guide for Coachella. You can still buy it if you want to see how accurately I predicted the success…

Things I Love: Other Bloggers

The tradition continues. It’s only the second week, but to do something two weeks in a row like I said I was going to do? It feels like a major victory. My invented tradition is #ShareSunday, or #SS if you’re going to play along….

Things I Think: This Show Looks Good

Pardon the randomness of this post, but here’s a show I’m definitely going to be watching. And I’m going to be writing about it at spunkybean. And I’m really, really looking forward to this show. But I can’t tell you why. But if you…

Things I Do: Write about Survivor, Phillipines

One of the things I do when I’m not posting pictures of the ties I’m wearing and when I’m not …um …oh, man, I guess there’s not much else I do, come to think of it. Well, anyway, let’s say I had a really…

Things I’m Doing: 44 Days of Ties (Day 17)

In honor of the presidential election I’m wearing what I call my “campaign tie”. Red, white, and blue. This one, in all honesty, might actually be a little too wild for even a presidential candidate to wear. It’s by J.S. Blank & Co., which…

Things I’m Doing: 44 Days of Ties (Day 16)

I’m trying some new things with my writing and my social media …namely, I’m going to start using Tumblr a whole lot more. I can’t find a ton of people to follow on Tumblr, but if you leave your Tumblr blog URL in the…

Things I’m Doing: 44 Days of Ties (Day 15)

Here’s an interesting tie. It says it’s from Neiman Marcus, and I don’t shop there. I don’t even have the guts to say, “I got this tie at Neiman’s” as if I’m too cool to say “Marcus.” However, my wife tells me she’s “awesome”…

Things I’m Doing: Started Another Blog; Getting Ready to Launch My Salsa Company

I took the week off from blogging about me because I started another blog to support the worldwide debut of my salsa. So, for those counting at home, yes …I have this blog you’re reading, spunkybean, I blog as a ghost for two clients,…

Things I Do: I Bowl on Thursdays

No blog about my life would be complete without a mention of bowling. OK …so I’ve mentioned “bowling” …now my blog is complete. Phew. Oh, blogging …I can’t quit you. I used to keep a blog devoted to bowling, or more specifically, to my…
