If you enjoy snack cakes but you don’t enjoy gnawing away at the plastic wrapper in order to enjoy the icing, this video is for you.

If you hesitate before initiating a toast because you don’t know what to say or you’re worried you’ll end up slamming your drink into another person’s beer and having unfortunate spillage issues, well, here is the advice you’ve been waiting for.

All of my vlog videos are on YouTube so that I can post them here for free, and it turns out that a lot of YouTube viewers are crazy about blowing bubbles.

Anyhow, after receiving several requests for more bubble-blowing videos and becoming slightly addicted to bubble gum since my first bubble-blowing how-to clip, I bring to you a small bubble-blowing trick. So get out your Hubba-Bubba and have some double-bubble blowing fun!

No more losing track of your beer. And more opportunity to play tricks on your friends or improve your social life. Don’t be shy–pick up a sharp object and Make Your Mark.

I ate Capri pizza regularly during my years at Reading High, but it was only on my recent trip to Massachusetts that I heard about the special Capri pizza-eating technique. Even if you can’t  visit Capri, this is an approach that may be worth trying at a pizzeria near you. Mmmm.
