Happening Right Now

apple zombie apocalypse

Attention Montgomery Countyites: Drop your golf clubs and go to Dogfish Head Alehouse in Gaithersburg right now! One of my favorite student organizations at the Universities at Shady Grove, Campus Kitchens, is hosting an all-day fundraiser with food, fun, games and prizes. All money raised will be used to aid the club in their mission to eliminate food waste and prepare nutritious meals for those struggling with food insecurity in Montgomery County.

To enhance your enjoyment of the delicious culinary offerings of Dogfish Head Alehouse, you may enter a raffle to win tickets to ABC’s The Chew, purchase a seasonally appropriate dayglow shirt that I designed using a brand-new illustration from Dogfish Head artist Andy Butterman, or enter a zombie trivia drawing for the chance to win free raffle tickets for the aforementioned prizes.

Have a heart and take a bite out of hunger; celebrate the Apple Zombie Apocalypse with Campus Kitchens.

The Shrine of Kermit

Those of us that live near the University of Maryland, College Park realize the cultural significance of Muppets more than most people. However, this is truly a piece of next-level fandom. In a secluded spot near the bike trail in a nearby neighborhood, someone took the time to create this chainsaw sculpture of Kermit the Frog, complete with a little chair where one can sit and admire him.

Interestingly the little chair is a trap, made of multiple small pieces of scrap wood that fall apart when sat on. I want to know who created this installation so I can commend them on their sculptural expertise, relevant choice of subject matter, AND sharp sense of physical comedy.

Saga of the Cornhole Boards

This Saturday is my fourth anniversary of my 21st birthday.  For my third anniversary of my 21st birthday, my roommate and boyfriend teamed up to make me a killer set of unfinished cornhole boards for me to paint and decorate.  Something that you need to know about me is that when I am intimidated by a project it can take months.  This project took 11 months and 3 weeks, to be specific.

For once my birthday is not on or immediately around Thanksgiving, so I am having my first-ever birthday house party… and I REFUSE to throw a party without fully decorated cornhole boards, dammit! Don’t worry, I did not forget the bean bags; I ordered them in my university’s colors from this seller on Etsy.
