What I’m Into Right Now – March 2018

Time for another collection of things that have my interest right now.

What I’m Into Right Now – March 2018 – This online site and it’s accompanying app let you easily make and distribute your own podcast.  I recently started one in which I share a Bad Dad Joke Of The Day.  It’s been a fun project.  Check it out now on iTunes.

Cadbury Creme Eggs – This Easter time candy is as polarizing as Peeps.  You either think they’re great or gross. There’s really no in-between. I’m a part of the camp that loves them.Wooden Beard Comb & Beard Butter – Last month I mentioned how I was growing my beard out and started using beard oil.  Well, I’ve upped my beard game a little. My wife got me a sandalwood beard comb for Valentine’s Day and I followed it up with some beard butter. Both help keep my facial hair soft and under control.

Disjointed – This Netflix Original sitcom isn’t for everyone.  It stars Kathy Bates as a marijuana dispensary owner and centers around her relationships with her clientele and employees.  The humor and subject matter is extremely crude… but I enjoy it for a quick twenty-five minute, laugh-filled distraction.

Ozark – This is another Netflix original show that stars Jason Bateman as a financial planner who moves his family to the Ozarks where he launders money for a Mexican drug cartel.  It’s a pretty intense drama.  I’m a little bummed that I’ve burned through season one. Now I need to wait for season two.

Five More Minutes – This is Scotty McCreery’s first number one song.  It’s one he co-wrote and said his Grandpa Bill was the inspiration for it.  There’s a lot in here that I can relate to. Maybe you can as well.

A Life Lesson From A Roll Of Toilet Paper

Extra effort on the little details often doesn’t take a lot of extra time but it can make a big impression.  That’s the lesson I learned recently from a simple roll of toilet paper.

Well, it wasn’t really the toilet paper itself.  It was what the new person cleaning my office did to it.  While cleaning the restroom she folded the corners under on the roll to make a point.  Just like what you might find in a fancy hotel.

I was impressed, obviously, because I took a picture of it… but it really got me thinking.

How long did it take to do? Ten or fifteen seconds, max.  It’s not like it was hard to do.  Folding the toilet paper that way isn’t necessary. It serves no real actual purpose and I’m sure it isn’t part of the job description.

What that simple act showed me was little details matter and can really make a big impression.  It also pointed out the importance of having pride in your work… because it’s obvious the person that did this took pride theirs.

What I’m Into Right Now – February 2018

Food, television, music… what made my list favorite things this month?  Read on and find out!

What I’m Into Right Now – February 2018

Cara Cara Oranges – I like oranges but these are my favorite.  They’re sweet and juicy.  The peel is fairly thick so I’ve figured out the best way to eat one is to cut it up into slices.

Beard Oil – I normally keep my beard short but this winter I decided to let it grow.  It’s longer now than it’s ever been but I’m doing my best to keep it looking nice.  I got some beard oil for Christmas and I really like it.  It keeps the hair soft and under control.

Mountain Men – Living off the grid and off the land is what this History Channel TV show is all about.  It’s an interesting distraction.

From A Room: Volume 2 – Chris Stapleton’s latest album is as great as his previous albums.  It’s the kind of album you can press play at the beginning and listen straight through to the end without skipping any tracks.

Spicy Candy – A while back my oldest saw some spicy Jolly Rancher candy.  Knowing that I’m a fan of sriracha and spicy food she picked up a bag for me to try.  Since then she’s found spicy Starbursts and spicy Skittles.

PowerDirector – I’ve been having fun making cooking videos and this is one of the Android apps that I’ve been using to create them.  There are plenty of transition effects and text and picture overlay options.

Egg Sandwiches – Whenever I need a quick meal this is one of my go-to’s.  My favorite variation is to use a toasted “everything” bagel, over-easy egg, pepper jack cheese, and salami.
