My Boys, Tea and First Place Chefs Choice……………….
I need y’all to know that I have missed my “Boys”! Ever since my freshman year at TAMUG I was one of the guys. The girls just didn’t like me very much, so I found a great group of guy friends. It is truly a special thing to be included as “one of the guys”. They used to pick on me all the time (like they do to each other) and one day I said something to T, I guess I was PMS’ing or something. He told me they wouldn’t pick on me if they didn’t like me! I never forgot that.
What I love about this town is that people stay friends forever. Even a lot of our friends intermarried. I at first thought it was alittle like incest or marrying your second cousin. It can make gatherings pretty interesting, especially when you are friends with all parties involved!


First you have T, I’ll call him the Godfather. He kind of reminds me of the com…

F' IKE....

Rules, smules....
Of course I know there are rules to posting, like, post everyday, post every other day etc. Yes, I should have "called" and told y'all that I was leaving for a few days to North Carolina, but I just probably didn't give a F. (plus, I don't even know if anyone has even read any of this stuff) I did think about it, but with the hurricane, packing for myself and the kids, I really didn't have enough time. Come to think of it, I did try to set up the mobile blog thingy, but they never sent me the code. I did plan on blogging while I was gone, but I was having a good ole time and probably would have forgotten anyway.

Hightimes in Highpoint.....
I had a great time in Greensboro, HARD at work, studying my ass off for my TEST. We went to Boone, NC, the last day I was there and was delighted to find out that it was home to Appalachain State University! Since I live in Michigan and we are a MSU family, I thought it would be great to bring home some ASU…

GOD SAVE GALVESTON!

Waiting.....

Well, I wasn't going create a new post tonite. Everytime I look at a picture from Galveston, I start to get  teary again. I'm already brewing a migraine. Ever since this past tuesday, i've been clenching my teeth so hard i think i'm going to start looking like John McCain. Yes, that was uncalled for, but i'm feeling pissy. I don't know how many of my friends in Galveston or in Houston were able, or smart enough to evacuate, but this helpless feeling is unbelievable.

Journalistic tendencies......

Besides writing for the Galveston Wizard, I write the Ddays column for Real Detroit Weekly.  Last night I was on assignment at Memphis Smoke in Royal Oak,  and thank the lord the bartender changed the channel to cnn or I think I would have bitch slapped him. I might have felt better though. For the first time in years, I do not currently have cable so I have to find other ways besides the internet to get my IKE fix. I took my two beautiful children to the RE…
