Dress use #74: Draft Stopper

I don’t know what the technical term is for an object you put at the base of the door to prevent cold air from coming in. I’ve never really needed one before. A couple weeks ago Tucson was shocked by consecutive nights with low temperatures in the teens. I didn’t pay attention to advice that […]

Dress Use #73: Kite

Wedding dresses are not easy to fly. My ex-wife’s wedding dress is heavy. I bet it weighs at least 10 lbs. by itself. My brother and I aren’t engineers but we made a frame to give the dress some structure. It helped but our frame was heavy too. I basically flew a 20lb. kite yesterday. […]

My Ex-Wife Is Crazy Dot Com

I am not insinuating anything with this post. Some guys started a site for guys to vent about their ex-wives. I support self-help forums and I think it’s funny. And they sent me a t-shirt – I’m cheap – and I like free stuff. You can check out their noble cause at www.myexwifeiscrazy.com. Happy Valentine’s […]

Mini Darth Vader Scarecrow

In the spirit of the entertaining Volkswagon pint-size Darth Vader Superbowl commercial I have decided to unveil the mini Darth Vader scarecrow. Not only did my ex-wife leave her wedding dress when she moved out . . . she left a miniature replica wedding dress too. For our wedding someone made a doll made in […]

Dress Use #72: Place Mat

I have decided that I am going to complete my 101 dress applications without washing the dress. I was able to execute a couple of applications like tea bag and baby sling with the dress as is. The baby that was slung survived and so did the consumer of the tea, me. The dress is […]

Dress Use #71: Moving Blanket

In my last post I talked about how enjoyable Christmas was this year and how much more settled my kids were a year and a half removed from my split with their mom. My daughter said it was the best Christmas ever but I think part of that was because she received the gift she […]

Book News & Dress Use #69: Floor Mats

Happy New Year to all. I have some news regarding my wedding dress project. I’m thrilled to announce that in December I agreed to work with New American Library/Penguin on a book that they plan to publish this year. Before NAL/Penguin came along I had what I felt was a pretty good list of 101 […]

Merry Christmas

Yeah – I’m cheating and reposting some old pictures. Tis the season to be insanely busy and short on time. I thought I might fire up the E-card tonight and send it to all my family and friends. That may or may not happen. I actually have some quality Christmas pictures I’m stashing in my […]

My Christmas Stocking

Christmas is right around the corner and with that comes all sorts of traditions. The tradition that I pull off with the most consistency is that I put off shopping until the very end but this year I’m planning to do it early – on the 23rd I hope. My little sister is in town […]

Dress Use #68: Dog Sling

I put up my Christmas lights Thanksgiving weekend. I do enjoy the holidays even though they can be a bit overwhelming at times. There is really only one thing the holidays involve that I could do without completely – glitter. I have had a fear of glitter most of my adult life. The way it […]
