The Booger Pickin' Morons

We're not really morons, we just play one on TV. Ok, the TV part is not true. Take a little trip down a scary little road we like to call "the inside of my (our) head". We're like you, only maybe a little weirder. If nothing else, we can promise that you'll never know what might get said here... that's a real-deal promise.

Since everyone is waiting on the edge of their seats to hear about my Fun night out...here goes.

I started with a little "pre-gaming" at home. My Sexy Mama's are really yummy! Kevin & I shared some cheese & crackers. I love a relaxing night.

We get out the door a few minutes after seven. We are meeting at this new restaurant for appetizers and cocktails before moving on for dinner. Kevin & I walk in and who is the first person we see??? That's right, the pediatrician! We love Dr. Josh! He is totally awesome & his wife is cool too. Of course, Josh is a Georgia boy & I had to ask how he liked the game. He wondered which one. I just meant the Tennessee game (51-33) but then I remembered they had just lost to Vandy last week. Ouch. Us Vol fans know all about that.

Anyway, so we meet up with the gang & it was great. The men all seemed to get along & be interested in each other too. There's always that awkward time when the women all get along & the guys are just staring at each other. Know what I mean?? Happily we did not have that. We just drank & ate & then moved on for dinner for more drinks & food.

There's a great restaurant in Chattanooga, St John's that Kevin & I have enjoyed. One couple suggested we go to the Meeting Place downstairs of the restaurant. Wow! Yummy yummy. For just a middle size city, Chattanooga has some really fantastic restaurants. You know, local joints that offer everything from very casual greasy spoons to fancy smanchy four star places and everything in between.

Anyway, we had a fun night with fun people. Now after about five hours sleep I am going to work at a festival before coming home to watch the Tennessee-Alabama game. This is one of the most storied rivalries in all college football. The Third Saturday in October has a mythical connotation for any Vols or Tide fan. If you love sports, you'd love attending the game in either Knoxville or Tuscaloosa, both beautiful cities with fans like no others. And nearly all of them are polite and respectful of the others! What a concept!

Enjoy your weekend!

Snow shovels

So, it's that time again....time for snow shovels. Ok, maybe not here yet, but did you see how much snow Buffalo got? Seriously! In October. We aren't talking mountain ranges. So...when the doors to the garage were open this weekend I took the two snow shovels out and put them on the porch next to the door. ugh. I'm not ready for this.

Snow shovels. In October.

Good Tunes

A cycling blogger, BK, mentioned the new Killers CD last week. How appropriate since the cycling fest Interbike had just wrapped in Las Vegas, the Killers' hometown. I loved the Hot Fuss disc and am a big fan of music. I had already gotten the disc when I saw BK's post but had not listened yet. Ladies & Gents, she's right, it rocks!!

I would also like to recommend Jet's new disc, Shine On. I really like that Aussie band! LOUD is best.

For some more good tunes and my new favorite album of love songs, try the Snow Patrol disc. Of course, my favorite love song of all time is Cake's "Stickshifts and Safety Belts". This is the song I would have liked to have had as our first dance when we got married, but hey I don't always get what I want. But I can try and sometimes I get what I need....OH YEAH.

What's your fave love song????

I need some FUN

School is a pain!!! I spent 5 1/2 hours on Friday doing homework....for one class...and I didn't finish it all. I have spent more time today & still have to finish Friday's, which is due tomorrow morning. I need a massage!

Happily, fall break is next Monday & Tuesday. Friday night I am planning a night out with the hubby & two other couples....should be fun. Some drinking, dinner, and maybe dancing. I think we'll even do shots but not tequila or scotch for me. One lady is a tequila gal so there will probably be some tequila in there.

Have a fun week & let's all try to have some fun in there.

Tequila

Because I believe in equal airtime...

Ode to Tequila
(Barf!)
Wow,
What
Did I have
For lunch?

Scotch

Scotch; not the tape, but the yummy single malt beverage.

I love Scotch. Scotch is good.

Ode to Scotch
Warm and peaty
Filled with
Smokiness
And colors
Of golden
Sweetness.

Neat
Or with rocks,
Sipped from a flask,
Or good crystal,
Possibly from the bottle if you are totally impatient and ice and crystal just aren't available.

Friday!

Yeah, it's Friday! Boo! I'm at work still and will be for several more hours. I am 100% not motivated to be here today either. Why can't I be at home with a cold beer and my hot wife?

5:00 is not coming fast enough.

Somebody beer me, quick!
