Top 5 Things That Should Always Be Celebrated

1- Your grandma’s birthday. Chances are, this little lady has lived through wars, unmedicated childbirth, and life without Wi-Fi….she deserves a damn birthday cake.

2- The 4th of July. It’s in the summer. It’s a drama-free holiday. You’re promised burgers, booze, and fireworks…God Bless America, indeed!

3- The return to singledom. Ain’t no party like a breakup party, ‘cuz a breakup party don’t stop…until you decide to take home the cheesy, but sweet, bearded bartender (who will now and forever be referred to as Rebound Robert).

4- Career advancement. Howwww many baby showers have you attended? Howww many presents have you purchased for these little gatherings? Correct me if I’m wrong, but that promotion *may* have taken a little more work than babymaking. Wine gifting should be mandatory.

5- Your favorite show. As ridiculous as it may sound, most people have at least ONE show that they cannot live without. You feel like part of the family, you hurt when they hurt, you root for that one special character…and you go nuts when the season returns. So gather your other groupies, make themed drinks/snacks, and celebrate the return of the Targaryens (or Lannisters, Starks, Tyrells…).

Top 5 Things You’re Never Too Old To Do

1- Run through the sprinkler. It really doesn’t get better than this…so throw caution (and your silk shirt) to the wind and partake in this time-honored summertime tradition. Extra points if you can toss a trampoline into the mix.

2- Order a kids meal. Whatever, the portions are better and they come in cute little boxes. Just make sure you don’t trash the toy…pay it forward by giving it to a kid on the street or donating to a local hospital/shelter.

3- Fight with your little brother. How long has he known you? Does he really think he’s going to get away with stealing your slice? Time to bust out the ‘ol Hogan moves.

4- Watch Boy Meets World. This show will never, and I repeat NEVER, get old. Here’s hoping the remake [and Topanga’s hair] can stand up to the legend.

5- Call your grandma when you’re sick. Not sure what it is, but my granny always seems to know the appropriate ratio of concern, humor, advice, and cornbread my illnesses deserve.

Top 5 Reasons I Watch Bravo

1- It’s my one chance to feel like the snarky, sassy, and mouthy gay male I know I was supposed to be in real life.

2- I keep waiting for Rachel Zoe to dump her husband…okay, okay I know that’s mean. Maybe if he would just lose those cheeseball necklaces?

3- I love catching inside dirt on LeAnn Rimes from Brandi Glanville.

4- The clothes…I just can’t handle it.

5- Life isn’t all diamonds and rosé…but it should be!

Top 5 Reasons I Watch Game of Thrones

1- I can’t stop hoping that Khal Drogo (and his shirtless bod) will come back to life.

2- I’m still trying to decide if I want to BE Daenerys or if I want to date her.

3- I keep hoping Tyrion will give up this “devoted man” act and go back to being the scoundrel we all love to watch.

4- Jon. Freaking. Snow.—I die, I just die. Does he KNOW how beautiful our children would be?!?!

5- I’m a perv—as shown by reasons 1- 4.

Top 5 Reasons I Hate Being Sick

1- Shocking as it may sound, I don’t like people assuming I have a narcotics problem…and my red/raw nose does not help this case.

2- I also don’t like for people to be scared of me…and, even though I can’t blame them, it always dings your pride a little when you see a stranger create as much distance between you and them as possible.  It’s just allergies, I swear!

3- I never purchase Kleenex and am thus forced to deplete my valuable paper resources.

4- Coughing is so gross. And it hurts. Make it go away, please?

5- It gives me an excuse to indulge in my already indulgent tendencies…sleep, television, and feel-good food. Ay Caramba.
