Odds and Sods

A couple of things on a lazy Sunday:

- I'm a little distraught at the loss to USC by my beloved Irish. I'm trying not to take it out on random sales clerks or waitresses, but it's hard. Fuckin' Trojans!

- Thanksgiving was awesome. I made two different kinds of mashed potatoes to bring to the family dinner. Sour cream and chive mashed spuds with roasted garlic and wasabi. And red-skinned mashed spuds with olive oil, roasted garlic, lemon zest and fresh parsley. The latter got the higher marks, but both were consumed whole-heartedly. Yum!

- One week until my Key West vacation. You all need to be jealous right now. It's always the best time. Ever.

- Gia walked into a sliding glass door last weekend. It was the funniest thing I've ever seen in my life. (FYI - no girlfriends were hurt in the making of this post)

That's mean. But funny and that trumps mean.

Also - less than one week till the Dominican baby! Whoo hoo!

Last - I love potatoes. If I could only have one thing to eat for the rest of my life - yep - tatoes.

True dat.

Funny always wins over mean. Especially when a loved one is involved.

Have fun in da Dominican. I'm leaving Friday for the Keys. Yay.

I love mashed taters! yummy!

vacation in Key West? damn you. oh wait. I live in Santa Barbara. nevermind.

I have walked into a sliding glass door, and laughed until my sides hurt! she wins a prize for making you laugh.

Yas - screen doors are fun. Glass doors are hysterical!

Slyde - yeah, without you there will be no one for the local gay population to hit on.

badger - glad you are back!

Mel - Football. But I love the rugby. I was just reading an article about this Texas High School football team that has a large number of kids transplanted from Tonga. They do the ritual Haka dance before each game ala the All-Blacks from N.Zealand. Great Stuff.
