Give It Up Now, It’s The Family Ries!

Do you remember the Aresenio Hall Show?  Well, most of you out there probably don’t, because you’re not a child of the ’90’s like myself, but I remember it.  In fact, I don’t just remember it, I want to get back to it.  And I’m going to start off this epic quest to get back to all things Arsenio with titling this blog post ‘Give It Up Now…’, because that’s what you did on the Arsenio Hall Show.  You gave it up.  From the Dog Poud.  WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF.  I know this all seems crazy to you now, but after you’ve done a little bit of research, and you realize that the way of the Arsenio is the only way to be, you’ll understand what I’m talking about.

Well, now that we’ve ‘given it up’ for The Family Ries, it’s time for me to tell you exactly why we are giving it up for them.  You see, there was this time, not all that long ago, that they once again stopped by FunCenter for Fun and the Study of The Effects of Fun on Marsupials & Flying Squirrells (FCFFATSOTEOFOM&FS) for some totallysweet supersnaps.  You heard me…you – in the dog poud – let me hear a WOOF WOOF!  Ahhh yeah.  You know what I’m talkin’ ’bout [ed.  I don’t think anyone knows what you’re talking about at this point.]  And I’m here to tell you, my faithful Citizens of Blog, they didn’t just stop by, they came, they saw, the conquered.  Vini.  Vedi.  Vici.

Straight up.

But enough of these words.  We just need to give it up one more time for The Family Ries for being so awesome, offer up a huge helping of MuchLove, and we need to tell one & all out there in Land of Blog to – Enjoy!

The Family Miller!

Whoa now.  Is this thing still on?  Check.  Mic check.  Alright.  It seems like this thing is still going on.  Well, if you’re ready, I think I’m ready.  So let’s start this party up again.  I said…LET’S START THIS PARTY UP AGAIN!   Awwwwwww yeah…what better way to get the festivities goin’ on that with a little story about a family, a family that we will from here on out call The Family Miller!

You see, my dear good peeps of Blog, there was this time, not all that long ago, when this wonderful fantastical family stopped by our studio and graced us with some of their sweet & precious time.  And, not only did they do this, but they also let us take some totally awesome sweetly rocking supersnaps!  Dudes.  I am not kidding you.  I’m giving you the straight dope.  ‘Cause I’m a straight shooter, and that’s how I roll.

And, as long as I’m being straight with you, I’m just gonna level with you.  As if letting us take some sweetlysnaps wasn’t enough, they were also totally and completely awesome.  You heard me.  Straight shooting that one right at you.  Alright.  I can see that your minds have been sufficiently blown, so I think it be time for me to offer up a big ol’ scoop of MuchLove to The Family Miller for stopping by FunCenter, and to all our good peeps out there in Land of Blog an this fine winter night – Enjoy!

The Children Sommers!

There comes a certain point when it’s really not appropriate to be called ‘The Children (insert name here).’  I, however, have not received formal training on when this point is.  So I’m going to stick with it.  It’s kind of fun to label fully grown adults as children.  It’s how I get my kicks.

Speaking of getting your kicks, well…actually, I really don’t have a segue.  So, MuchLove & ManyThanks to these well-behaved children for stopping down to FunCenter and letting us hang with them (notice how I kept it hip and used the term ‘hang’?!), and to all my lovely People of Blog out there trying to deal with eight million feet of snow – Enjoy!

The Families Gandrud & Pankow!

In keeping with the theme of today’s blog posts, I’m going to tell you a little factoid about The Family Gandrud!  Way back when…way way way back when, as it turns out, my father, the one & only Bud Bieri was actually in the wedding of Mr. & Mrs. Gandrud.  This factoid, however, is true!  It’s a small, small, small world, and when I found this out, my mind was officially blown.

We were just oh so happy to work with these families, and would like to offer up MuchLove & ManyThanks to these friends of O&J!  Oh, and don’t forget to – Enjoy!

The Family Erie!

Wanna know a secret?†  The Family Erie are so awesome, that whenever they walk into a room it lights up.  Literally.  It’s almost freaky.  The good part of this?  Electric bills…dirt cheap.

The Family Erie…doing their part for a greener more eco-friendly world.

The Family Bogenrief!

Here’s a little known fact!  In their spare time, the Family Bogenrief plays kickball.  Well, they don’t just play it, they dominate at it.  They dare you to challenge them.   They’ll even play you in winter.  That’s how hardcore they are about kickball.  If you’d like, there could even be a friendly wager…if you feel lucky.  Do you feel lucky?

And that concludes a little known fact* about the Family Bogenrief!
