The Journey's End

Hey Gang,

It's all over. My quest to meet Tony is complete. It couldn't have turned out better. (Unless of course, I actually met him, but I got awfully close.)  Enjoy!

The Kitty Kitty Challenge

Hey Gang,
If you have been following my podcast (#ItsNotAPodcast) then you know that I am the journey of a lifetime to meet my one true Guru, Tony Robbins.  I did, though, want to take a little break and share something that I keep seeing during my travels.

There is a new video craze going around called the KiKi Challenge.  This trend has people jumping out of moving cars to dance to a Drake song and then jumping back in.  What could possibly go wrong?  Apparently a lot. Many people are injuring themselves by not successfully gauging the speed of the vehicle. (Quick ProTip, the best speed to exit a vehicle is when the car is parked and going zero miles per hour.)

I understand the need to follow trends, though.  I once had a mullet, high-waist jeans and leg warmers. (Awe... 2016 was a good year.)  I propose a newer, safer challenge, called the Kitty Kitty challenge.  It is where you find a cat, dance with it to the tune of "Who Let The Dogs Out" and then safely release the feline.  Make sure no harm is done to the kitty. (Other than the mildly annoying the cat, who was probably already annoyed anyway.)  You can post your videos in the comments section.

I am going back on my journey to meet Tony!  Keep watching and stay awake, Kids!

Snacks On a Plane

Hey Gang,

For those of you following my podcast, you know I am on a non-stop adventure to finally meet my Tony! (For those of you not following my podcast, follow my podcast.) In my pursuit of this opportunity I have had to travel in some creative ways.  I recently rode on a plane. ( I also visited the TSA people in their office for a long time.)

A lot of things have changed  since my last airplane trip in the late 90's.  Now instead of dressing for the plane ride, people wear sweat pants and open-toed flip flops...How comfy!  Eating on a plane has also changed.  I remember getting a light meal and a can of soda while on board. This time, I was just handed a small glass of soda, no can and a bag of crackers.  As disappointed as I was, I realized that the airlines are now letting passengers bring in their own refreshments on the plane.

A lot of people on my flight seemed to go for the fast food that they over paid for in the terminal.  The smell of greasy food in a giant tube stuffed with people really make the senses come alive!  A few people brought in homemade food.  Fortunately, the smell was just as pungent as the recently purchased food.  The real aroma, however, came 45 minutes after take-off when those passengers got gassy from the high altitude. Economy flying is fun!

I don't want to give any spoiler alerts about the rest of my pursuit of the great Anthony Robbins, but follow my podcast and see my other means of transportation.

Hope everyone is having a great summer. Stay awake, kids!
