The Post About Stepping Out On You

Six weeks after my naked drunk driver encounter and I'm boot-free. I still limp like an old man with style but a few more weeks of physical therapy and I should be running 5Ks again.


I had the following exchange with my Colombian orthopedic doctor.

Me: What shoes can I wear now?
Doc: You could wear Crocs?
Me: Your Mom could wear Crocs.

This banter falls flat when your medical professional speaks English as a second language.

During my blogging hiatus, I've been working on two podcast projects.

Golden Moon Buffet:  
Erin Moon and I are serving up a weekly all-you-can-eat buffet of pop culture goodness on the Xtra Bacon network.

Episode 2:
  • Reese Witherspoon: An American Citizen on American Soil
  • Movies You Quote Like You Got Paid To Write Them
  • Celebrities You Should Follow on Social Media and In The Airport If That Works Out
Episode 3:  
  • American Vs. British Pop Culture. Who would aliens take with them?
  • Books That Failed To Live Up To The Movie. Our apologies to Stephen King
  • Erin and Jamie Have Guilty Pleasures. And they’re humiliating.
Update: Episode 4:
  • Marathons: The Kind with Stretchy Pants and Snack Foods
  • Maxim Hot 100: Congratulations to Hoda Kotb

The Post About The Rabbit Recommends v.120

Each week or so I post things of which I'm fond. You can choose what happens after my recommendation. Ignore, embrace, debate. Earlier volumes of The Rabbit Recommends can be found here.

I'm obsessed with all things paperless.

Rabbit Sidebar: Except wedding and graduation invitations. I'll only pony up a crock pot or wad of cash if someone had to lick a stamp and the back of an envelope. Please don't Facebook invite me to your life event. No.

But despite my preference for digital, this video makes me happy. And for all of you reading "real" books and printing emails, this is my concession.

The 50 Most Perfectly Timed Photos. Perfect place, time, and angle. And then you win the Internet. Disclaimer: #46 is the worst.

I once had a blogging mid-life crisis and didn't write for more than 3 months. It was a boy in skinny jeans and a pair of Toms that turned it around. This may be the reason I love this one-for-one charity idea from Tripp & Tyler.

Things I Read This Week That Weren't Poppycock (see...not giving up...)
Groupon Dating by Jason Melville Gausta: Jason and I had a conversation. It became this very delightful post. It begs the question "How much is your soul mate worth?"

60 Thoughts About Turning 60 by Ian Martin: Quick preview:
17. The scarier the world becomes, the more important it is to focus on the correct use of "less" and "fewer".
37. It's funny and comforting to know that after you are dead, you will still get spam.
60. When people finish a sentence by saying "the list is endless", it always means they have run out of things to list.

5 Words Everyone Says by Jon Acuff: "...we all say them thousands of times in our lives. At the end of adventures, in the middle of mistakes, late at night, early in the morning, "How did I get here" is a sentence that none of us escape." This post was just goodness.

A Prayer for the Miraculous by Jessica Buttram: This post actually makes me angry because she is not writing every day. Holy moly with the words. 

As I left the grocery store today with a buggy full of items and a broken foot, the bottom dropped out and rain fell in buckets. A member of my church happened upon me. She offered to drive my car to the sidewalk and load my purchases. Right?!?

This video captures folks helping others via car dash cams. May it restore our faith and prompt us to kindness.


The Post About A New Rabbit Venture

I met Erin Moon online.

Several of my friendships have progressed as follows:
1. Follow on Twitter.
2. Friend on Facebook.
3. Text about people on Twitter and Facebook.
4. Eat cake in real life.

That's exactly what happened with Erin. We met over coffee and a cupcake in Birmingham and became fast friends. We realized we both fancied celebrities, pop culture and Downton Abbey.  

Fast forward and today we're launching a podcast about those very things called The Golden Moon Buffet. 

The first episode of the Buffet serves up:
  • Gwyneth Paltrow - Everyone Hates Her Now
  • Summer Movies That Will Be Incredible And Those That Will Be Furious
  • Mobile Gaming is like Two Teaspoons of Meth
I would love for you to join us on this adventure. You can do so willingly by listening in one of two ways:

  1. Directly download this episode.
  2. Subscribe via iTunes.
