The Tiki Gods Are Smiling...So Is ThinkGeek

My wallet just said, "Ouch!" Last year, ThinkGeek released a set of Star Wars tiki glasses. Today, they not only released a second series, but they also released a limited edition set. I'm thankful they re-released the first set, but I wasn't about to let them all get out of my grasp this time! Now I just have to find a place to store them all.

Don't wait too long to get yours! Click here to shop ThinkGeek.

Hawaiian Shirt Day...Or Not

So someone at work decided it would be fun to have Hawaiian Shirt day. Everyone knows my taste in clothing, so my question isn't, "Do I have a Hawaiian shirt?" My question is, "Which Hawaiian shirt should I wear?" I opted for this beauty from the Dole Pineapple Plantation on Oahu.


To add to the ambience, I pulled up Subsonic Radio and pull up the Dole-Whip feed. Life is good!


A few people mentioned my cool threads, with matching socks and accessories, and I know I'm rocking the look. Then I had someone come up to me and called me out on my reading skills. Apparently, Hawaiian Shirt Day is next Friday, not this Friday! 



Oh well. Good thing I have a lot more Hawaiian shirts (Enough to make every Friday during the summer Hawaiian Shirt Day). Looks like I have one more week to figure out what to wear...again.

Spoiler: Only If You've Been Living Under a Rock

The headline is as follows:

Someone Edited the End of Rogue One Into the Start of A New Hope Because Star Wars is Awesome

We all thought about it when we were watching Rogue One, but thanks to one industrious fan, they helped us visualize what we only imagined. So, a great big thank you to Barre Fong!

Work of Art

I'm not going to apologize for my spending habits. And one day, I suppose I'll have to sell my goodies to pay for retirement. But in the meantime, I get to enjoy some eye candy of a different sort.

Today, my Britto Artist Mickey arrived. He's much bigger than I expected, but he looks great in my office at work! I placed him near some concept art, and I think it works well. What do you think?


I purchased mine from my friend, Febra, over at the Gift House in Lakewood, CO. Be sure to order your special treasures from her!

Disney's March Madness - Not What It Used To Be


Many of us (and some of us who are not sports fans) have been looking forward to Disney's March Madness teams. This year, Disneyland isn't being represented. And the artwork is very lack-luster when compared to artwork in past years. Let's hope Disney gets back on track. And there isn't a Star Wars bracket this year, either!

Click here to see all the team art work as well as to download your own bracket.

Part of the Club

There is plenty to entertain you at the Denver International Airport (DEN). Being there at least once a month, I have my routine. Today, I needed to make a couple of conference calls, so I had to get to the airport really early. It shocks me to say this is the first time I've used the Delta Sky Club at DEN.

Other Sky Clubs that can learn a lesson from their customer service. Everyone is very friendly, but not only that, a nice gentleman came by to give me my coffee and Biscotti between calls!


There's even a nice view of Concourse A from up here. It looks so peaceful and quiet, but we all know better.

 
Of course, some people just make themselves at home in the lounge.

Driftless

I travel often to Wisconsin Dells for work. It's not one of my favorite places, but a necessary evil. A few years ago, a couple coworkers of mine introduced me to Driftless Glen Distillery in Baraboo, WI. It's about 15 miles from the Dells, and oh so worth the drive!

Situated along the Baraboo River, Driftless Glen Distillery not only sells their concoctions they brew, or rather distill, but they have an amazing kitchen. Try the Jambalaya or flatbreads.


As for the spirits, I love the Skinny Lemon and Skinny Cucumber Vodkas. They are refreshing. Then my coworker told me about the S’mores Flavored Rivershine. She drizzles it over vanilla ice cream. I thought that sounded weird. But when I tried it, wow! I did more than drizzle it!

And as if that isn't enough, they also carry Reneé Olive Oils and Balsamics. I came home with three bottles of different olive oils. Two of my favorites are the Baklouti Green Chili Oil and the Dark Toasted Sesame Oil. That last one is great with chicken.

So if you're ever near Wisconsin Dells or Lake Delton, make sure you allow some extra time to visit Driftless Glen in Baraboo. Just follow the street signs.
