Jen’ s Guy vs. Fifty Shades of Grey

In Man-day by Jensguy31 Comments

OK, I know I am several years behind, but let’s discuss pop literature. I am an English Lit Major, and when I was in college, I went to class with this person: To be honest, I never would have pegged her for somebody who would bend American Pop Culture to her will. But there it is, and as a man, …

Man-day Post: Whither Chivalry. . .

In Man-day by Jensguy13 Comments

About a week ago, I heard comedian and talk show host Dennis Miller talking about the “momentous” release of hacked nude photographs.  The gist of it was, “I didn’t look at the photographs, it really isn’t my thing.  I figure that they didn’t want them released,  so it wouldn’t be right of me to be out there looking.”  And finally, …

Man-day Post: Canning your SPAM

In Blogging, Man-day by Jensguy14 Comments

Welcome to another installment of Man-day from Jen’s husband, Jen’s Guy! Generally I am a big fan of SPAM.  I like it fried with with eggs and veggies.  Seriously, how can you not like this? Well, that is unless you are my wife, who inexplicably doesn’t.  She IS, however, a very good cook and mother and looks as hot as …

Man-day:Frogmaggedon

In Man-day by Jensguy18 Comments

We live in Tucson, Arizona, famous for our omnipresent sunshine, except for a couple of months during the summer when we get our Midsummer Monsoons. What the Monsoons mean is that there is a period, from the end of June to the first couple weeks of September, where it could conceivably rain every afternoon.  While this is true in theory, …

Man-day: Someone Hates Cheerios Dad. . .Seriously?

In Man-day by Jensguy18 Comments

OK, First of all, Peanut Butter Cheerios now exist!  It’s like taking Captain Crunch and softening the edges so that it doesn’t cut across the roof of your mouth like gravel.  Yay! Oh yeah, and the part of the announcement everyone has been talking about,  Cheerios Dad: The overall consensus is that this is fully awesome and long overdue in …

In Man-day by Jensguy8 Comments

Here’s a little side note from Jennifer’s article on BlogHer which I hope you have already taken the time to read. Do you ever have moments when information just clicks?  Something that takes a really large issue and brings it into a single local issue and suddenly everything makes sense?

Man-day Post: Movies I Love, But Can’t Recommend

In Man-day by Jensguy13 Comments

I don’t believe that I am alone in my enjoyment of certain things which I am fairly sure others might not enjoy nearly as much as I do.  For example, something like Kipper Snacks. Kipper snacks aren’t for everyone, but if you like them you just really like them. It’s like Sardines, but far more photogenic. So I’m going to …

Man-Day Post: The Death of Blogging: Part 2

In Blogging, Man-day by Jensguy23 Comments

Continued from last weeks post The Death of Blogging.  It’s not about you. One of the things I have noticed is that those who proclaim the death of blogging are really shouting “my blog isn’t doing as well!”  Here is a fun excerpt from Wired Magazine circa 2008 (funny how that feels like such an eternity ago in digital time.) …

Man-day Post: The Death of Blogging- Part 1

In Blogging, Man-day by Jensguy22 Comments

Have you heard the news?  Blogging is dead.  Every year people march out articles telling us that the era of blogging is finished and the “new thing” is ready to take over.  Generally, they are selling something or just crying for attention.  I especially love it when they make the pronouncement on a blog (very post-modern.) But the claim is …

Man-Day Post: Alexa Toolbar, Yea or Nay?

In Blogging, Man-day by Jensguy16 Comments

I hate toolbars. As a tech professional who gets called in to fix ailing computers the first thing I often notice is that the offender has so many toolbars on their browser that they can barely see any content. And, nobody, not anyone anywhere, has purposely set Ask.com as their default homepage. Not even the guys who work there. Just …

Jen Takes Over Man-day!

In Man-day by Jen21 Comments

Since it’s Father’s Day I am gifting Jensguy a break from posting and taking over his normal Man-day duties. Interestingly when queried what he would like for Father’s day he said a nap. What?? No fancy elaborate dinner at least?? He again said no. I countered with the fact that I have about 1 zillion recipes pinned just for this …
