Believe it or not, and judging by the fact that half the country is covered in about a foot of snow I’m guessing not, spring is almost near. In fact Daylight Saving Spring Forward is just a little over a week away. So we asked our staff what they were looking forward to most about spring! Tell us what you’re looking forward to most about spring in the comments section below
The Lenten holiday is upon us so we thought we’d find out just “what are you giving up for lent?”. As we found out yesterday, Nate will be giving up all other beverages besides water, so we asked our staff, what would be the absolute worst thing to have to give up for 40 days. Share your responses in the comments section below!
With this week’s Presidential Inauguration we thought we’d task our writers to share what their first (non-political) act would be if they were elected president of the United States. Of course this meant living out a number of ridiculous childhood dreams as well as the conversation spinning out of control into a West Wing love fest. Let us know what your first presidential move would be in the comments section below!
Awards season is in full swing so we decided to ask our staff members if they had the opportunity to be recognized for an award, any award whatsoever, what would it be, why, and what would their acceptance speech sound like? This is what our group of crazies came up with. What award would you want to win? Share your thoughts in the comments section
This week’s roundtable was a big random but we decided to ask our staff whether they would choose to eat the same exact meal for an entire year or go vegan. Here’s what they came up with…
I love Christmas, I’m all about the jingle, the jangle, the cookies, the snow (please bring the snow), the churchin’ and of course the beer. But every now and then, hearing Oh Holy Night in the local grocery store a month before Christmas can get a little old. Oh and there are times when trying to drive within a mile of any retail store sitting bumper to bumper can start rubbing the wrong way. And having that one awkward encounter while back home on vacation, with that guy you met once in high school, doesn’t exactly rank at the top of my Facebook interests list, especially when that one encounter involved getting chewing tobacco spat on your new shoes. So hey the holidays aren’t entirely sugar plums and peppermint sticks. So we asked our staff what they dreaded most about the impending holiday season.
What would you do if you won the Powerball? 500 million dollars to be exact. What would you do with 500 MILLION dollars… well more likely 250-300 million after taxes but who’s counting? Well we decide pose this ridiculous scenario to our staff to see what would transpire.
Thanksgiving is the perfect excuse to eat and eat and eat and drink and eat some more. So we tasked our writers to share their favorite component of the Thanksgiving meal, as well as what they’ll be drinking at dinner this year!
Thank goodness that election is over. No more political ads, no more negativity. And now we can come together as a nation and move forward. However, we thought we’d finish on a good note by sharing our favorite American Presidents historically. Our reasoning may not be the most sound…
Lets be real, Halloween is all about the candy. All across the U.S. tonight, kids will dump out their bounty and trade for their favorite sweets and try to unload the lesser prizes. So we tasked our PorchDrinking staff to recount what they loved getting in their Halloween escapades, as well as what they tried to unload on their gullible friends or parents.
Halloween is just under a week away so we asked our writers what their favorite halloween memories were. What resulted was an in depth trip down memory lane consisting of costumes and candy grabbing blunders. What were your favorite Halloween costumes/memories growing up? Comment below!
Now that summer is coming to an end it’s time for Americans to return to their comfy sofas, sit on their butts and watch TV once again. Cmon’ working out is overrated. So to help our TV fans get caught up on all of the new shows hitting the airwaves this fall we assembled our all-star line up of Pop Culture gurus to give you a Fall TV preview. So if you’re at work go ahead and plug in those ear buds and press play.
While we’re still in the midst of back to school season we decided to find out just how weird our staff members were as kids. It did not disappoint. This week I posed the question of what their favorite childhood games were growing up. This could have been made up, obscure or traditional. Hilarity ensued.
We are a nation of hard working, non-slacking off, nose to the grindstone individuals, which is why most of you will be reading this when you should be working on something else. Hey, we aren’t pointing any fingers, hell we didn’t have a new post up for three straight days this past Labor Day weekend. Speaking of which, I’m not complaining but is it really necessary to have a holiday for the American Laborer? While we’re at it, perhaps we should just think about adding a few more superfluous holidays, which brings us to this week’s roundtable discussion. I challenged our staff to come up with their own made up holidays.
I’m pretty sure you can already feel it in the air, that crisp early morning breeze, the prevalence of leaves starting to crunch with each step you take down the sidewalk, the crackle and aroma of wings wafting through the air, and the unavoidable discord coming from national pundits about an irrelevant Tim Tebow… let me repeat IRRELEVANT.
Back to School… Back to School to prove to Dad I’m not a fool! Its that time of the year again where lunch boxes are getting filled with bologna sandwiches and snack packs, Office Depots are hocking assorted folders, pens, and TI-83s, and children are feverishly combing through their Spark Notes. In honor of schools starting up again we decided to discuss what we loved/hated most about going back to school.
Watching Shark Week every year just makes me think that getting mauled by a great white just might be the most badass way to go out. Kinda morbid but, what would be the most badass way you would want …
Typically at around 2pm on Wednesdays we have a roundtable discussion about something or another, whether it be whether the 90’s housed the most prolific run of children’s tv shows or what people remember most from the Olympics. Following that …
Tristan: I love the Olympics, not as much as my friend Jessica from high school… she LOVES the Olympics, so much so that she and her roommate Hannah had an Olympic themed beer party with beers indigenous to …
