So I may or may not have used my seat heater today because the temperature was in the 60s. Those of you who live outside of Texas will call this lame. And I will call you a weather elitist.
Anyway, it was glorious. I think I want to move to a place where it feels like Fall all year round—suggestions? I’m back at work today, but I wouldn’t exactly call it back to normal. Our phones aren’t working, some of our doors aren’t working, and it is eerily empty and quiet since not all of the other companies in our building have come back to work. It is also not normal for traffic light cables to be hanging in the road, or for there to be 4+ hour lines at the gas station, or for Walgreens to be completely out of milk. Who buys milk at Walgreens anyway? Let’s be honest, though—I was really at Walgreens to buy candy, so I can’t really complain.
I wish I could say I had something other than Ike to blog about, but considering that most of the news stations are still covering it 24/7, I can’t really help but have it on the brain. We are making a trip to Aggieland this weekend, and I’m hoping that the hype will have fizzled out a little by the time we get back. However, if there are still more than a million people without power at that time, then I have a feeling it will still be making the news J
So about our trip to the B/CS—Brian and Wade will be attending the football game against Miami with their sisters, while Allison and I are gallivanting around town and partaking in more nostalgic activities, like eating Shake’s concretes and shopping at Post Oak Mall (it’s a great shopping place, puts a smile on your face…). And I can assure you that a meal at La Bodega will definitely be consumed during our visit.
I actually wouldn’t mind going to the game, but if the temperature were to rise above 85 degrees and if I was forced to stand for more than 5 minutes at a time, I probably wouldn’t provide the most enjoyable company to those around me, so I will play it safe and stay out of the stadium. But don’t worry, Ags, I will be rooting for you!
Speaking of the Aggies, have I ever mentioned how much I love it when people talk smack to me about A&M’s football team? Especially if they (a) didn't attend the school that we played against and (b) insinuate that our athletic record is indicative of our scholastic abilities. Yep, it’s true. Right up there with how much I love it when people don’t hold open doors for others, blatantly misuse grammar, and are embarrassingly rude to waiters or other people providing customer service. So as a friendly reminder this football season, please keep any negative Aggie comments to yourself :o). Thanks and gig ‘em.
Have a happy and hurricane-free week, friends!
