Everything is awesome


Yeah, so, you know how mighty, mighty good man David and I like beer? We do. We like it a lot.

Well, we contributed to a Kickstarter for a friend’s new taproom in Oakland. And, because we contributed we got our name painted on the floor. Well, not our name, but our family nickname.


Yes, we refer to ourselves as the MansTracys, and yes, we are goobers.

What I’m trying to say is if I’m not at home and I’m not in my cube, you’ll probably find me at The Good Hop standing by my name, looking fancy and drinking a tasty adult beverage. If you live in the Bay Area, you should go check it out. It’s a great place with a nice variety of beer on tap, and entire wall of beer in coolers — one of which is dedicated to sour beers. I know, right?!

Beer side note: We are always trying new beer, and if you are interested, I track my beer consumption on my Instagram and Untappd. You should follow me, or don’t … whatever. I’m cool. *flips up collar of leather jacket and hits a jukebox*

Speaking of cool, we watched “The Lego Movie” last week. I know what you thinking, “Oh, you watched the Lego Movie with your son.”

David and I watched “The Lego Movie” without our kid last week. And then we watched it again this week … without our kid. And now we’re kinda obsessed with it, and we’ve been singing “Everything Is Awesome” for a week straight. We’re awful to be around. Consider yourself warned.

The movie is really funny. Seriously. It was funnier the second time. Do you know how often I re-watch a movie these days? Never! I don’t have time to watch one movie let alone re-watch something, because baseball season. I highly recommend “The Lego Movie.” It’s way funnier than you think it’s going to be. Of course, take my review with a ginormous grain of salt, because I’m the lady who gave “Jackass: The Movie” a four-star review.


There was a character in the movie that I really identified with: UniKitty. This is me at work.

I can’t believe I’m not running the company by now.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. Um, the husband and I left our baby with my Aunt & Uncle and went to see The Lego Movie. In the theater. It being the second movie we’ve seen in a theater since the kid was born. (‘Gravity’ was the other. We enjoyed TLM more). That song is an evil, evil ear worm though, and now I’m stuck with it again, so thanks!

Leave a comment, you guys. It's fun!
