One of the most common questions I get has to do with my name/nickname.
Allow me to clear that up right off the bat.
My name is Denny, well Dennis if we are being official, and Diz is my college nickname.
So where did Diz come from?
Perhaps you’re familiar with Snoop Doggy Dogg?
Well, when I was in college I could speak -izzle with the best of the best.
It wasn’t long before my nickname was Dizzle Krizzle, and that was eventually shortened to Diz.
And like any good nickname, it stuck fit like a glove and stuck like glue.
For the record, I wouldn’t be shocked if there were more than a few guys that I went to college with that either think that Diz is my given name or have no idea what my actual name is.
Now that we’ve cleared up my name/nickname confusion, let’s dive a little deeper.
My most important titles are husband and dad.
For the record, Beks is the cute one and Adi is our daughter.
And also for the record, all three of us have a fondness for Disney World.
Being locals, though don’t forget that I’m a Michigander and not a native Floridian, we tend to make regular trips to the House of Mouse for fun and shenanigans whenever we can sneak up there for the morning.
Other than that, I’m pretty much a fan of all things sport.
My favorites are hockey and futbol, though I’ll pretty much watch any athletic competition that is being televised.
Speaking of television, you can’t go wrong with an episode of Seinfeld.
While I am admittedly late to the party, Parks and Rec may be the best new TV show of the past 15 years.
And not for nothing, Ron Swanson is my spirit animal.
