I don’t know what it is, but I always seem to have a soft spot in my heart for special locations. Whenever I travel to Las Vegas, there’s a special hot dog stand at New York, New York casino that reminds me of my wife. […]
Day 2 and I have learned this: Koreans are basically Polish grandmothers.
From the second we met up with Sungwoo at the airport and made the one hour+ subway ride to our hotel, he’s been trying to feed us. When we met up with his wife, Park You-Young, the efforts to shove food down […]
If you’re not familiar with the story of Sungwoo Lee, well, you’re probably on the wrong website. Click the big blue book on the right and pay $10 to read all about it. Then come back here and you’ll be mostly caught up. Since then it’s just been a lot of fart jokes.

This is the last day for the Fake Ned Twitter account.
The account has been converted over to @ChrisKamler, my real name.
There are a number of reasons for this, none of them relevant. […]
Every year, my son and I pick one weekend to go on a “Man-cation” with the added benefit of leaving my wife alone for a weekend that she doesn’t have to cook and clean and do all of the other wonderful things that she does for us.
