There’s Nothing Wrong With Surprise Books

I am notoriously fond of spoiling the crap out of the people in my life. I love planning surprises (usually without telling anyone) and springing them on my unsuspecting friends and family without a word. One of my favorites was back in January when Andy and I were out at Disneyland. I had booked us

Never Again; or, the Soundtrack to Your Break Up

Josh’s Note: The entry started its life as a chapter for my book “You’re Doing It Wrong” but it won’t be making the final cut. I didn’t want to just toss it away so I’ve transformed it into a blog post. To give some context to it all, I wrote this following a really nasty

Counting Down to Halloween Horror Nights 27

There are currently 189 days until Halloween Horror Nights opens to the world and I couldn’t be more excited. For the event’s 27th year they are running a total of 34 nights which is a welcome extension in my opinion. Last year’s event received an unprecedented extension when Hurricane Matthew caused the event to shut

This past weekend while thousands of Princesses stormed the Magic Kingdom for the annual Princess Half Marathon Weekend, I was trekking to Tampa for a different challenge.

People Forget About Wine?

Ok. It’s one of those nights where, at one point, I’m sure I had something wonderful and profound to write but it hasn’t come. Now it’s 1:30 in the morning and I should probably just go to bed but I can’t and I’m watching Saving Mr. Banks. Well, that’s a lie. Saving Mr. Banks just

Today I Am a Pod Person

Let it be known that I travel. A lot. I have been lucky enough to have a job that offers me the opportunity to explore the country and visit new and exciting places. Side Note: For those that don’t know, my primary job is as an Anti-Bullying/Social Media specialist. I spend a large amount of

Today I Hid In a Bookstore

I will start this by admitting that I am VERY tired right now and the struggle to keep me eyes open is very real. This past weekend I ran the Gasparilla Distance Classic (posts about the races coming soon) and I have yet to have time to catch up on that pesky sleeping thing. True

Newsies the Broadway Musical; or, a Post That Has Nothing to Do With Donald Trump

Tonight I got to treat myself to a Broadway musical in the most amazing way possible. In a stroke of luck I had the evening off which gave me the opportunity to catch the last night of Fathom Events’ Newsies the Broadway Musical. What makes this experience so unique is that I was able to
