a few more random tidbits…

My Mamaw Edelen was born on leap year day. Today is her birthday. She’s turning 20. How cool is that?

My fingers and my wrist are really sore from practicing guitar again over the last couple of weeks. But it feels better than my eyes hurting from doing nothing but watching tv every night.

So, it looks like our choices in November 2008 are going to be an inexperienced Senator whose middle name is Hussein, who never shows up to vote on bills, and whose campaign is based primarily on rockin-the-hizzouse ….vs…. a guy in his 70’s who has the cordial personality of an angry donkey, has almost spooky transparent skin, is anxious to exercise even more miliary strength, and who, frankly, wasn’t even a good enough candidate to beat out George Bush in 2000. Bummer.

I’m currently infatuated with the Toyota Yaris.

I’m beginning to realize that, as I move forward in this vegetarian venture, that I need to bid a sad farewell to fast food. In general, here’s what is offered at fast food places that I will actually be able to eat: baked potatos, french fries, apple pies, yogurt, bean burritos, ice cream, plain biscuits, and not much else. This is going to be tough. But I’ll be better off for it.

Has anyone noticed that the NBA is back in full force? Remember 6 years ago when you sort of forgot it existed, and any mention of it made you cringe?

During the UT – Vanderbilt game, Bruce Pearl was so angry at one point he actually turned green. No kidding. Me and a few friends were watching the game at Spicy’s and thought he might actually tear his clothes off and morph into the Incredible Hulk.

It’s lunch time, so I gotta go. Today’s menu – Ramen noodles. Hmmm, good.

    I heard a vegan who would only eat raw say they ate at Subway a lot when on vacation. You can get either a salad or they will make you a veggie sandwich. It’s an option any way.

    Cool car. If you want to relive your younger years, Ron found out he can watch an entire season of McGyver for free on the CBS website. How cool is that?

    hey, missed you guys at crossings yesterday!

    yeah, i’ve already used subway, pretty decent salad for $3.50.

    i’m scared to go back and watch mcgyver episodes. after all these years, upon reliving the overdramatized music, the outdated special effects, and the mullett, i’m afraid i may go, “why in the crap did i like this show so much?”

    thanks betsy…we really really hate not being there. my sister has a 5 month old boy – my first niece or nephew – so we’re going to try and go up every 2-3 months to visit and not miss out on him growing up. but we HATE missing church as a result….i bet the open common-meal and prayer time at the end was really awesome.
