Man, we had an awesome pizza this weekend!* Not only was it loaded with great toppings like sausage and green olives, but it was also 28" wide. Now that has "Super Bowl Party" written all over it. But we got to talking about that... everyone has Super Bowl parties. But who has World Series parties? We need more of those! I'm telling you right now - if the Cubs play in October, everyone is invited over to my place for pizza and drinks and some Cubbie lovin'. So, mark it on your calendars.
I've totally started to dig Facebook. I don't know why it's fun, but it is. But probably like every other site I've signed up for, it's destined to lose its appeal in a few weeks. But for the next 14 days, it'll be swell.
I had an interesting thing happen. Up until this summer, I'd been assigned the duty of public talk coordination at the hall. It has got to be one of the hardest assignments, and I felt so bad having to give it to someone else - but you know... more family on the way and already so strapped for time, I just couldn't continue to do it. Anyway, a few things got lost in the shuffle as I passed the torch. Including the fact I was supposed to give a talk somewhere last weekend and I had NO clue. I get this call in the middle of the afternoon during my meeting, so I didn't answer it. But I later checked the message which went something like, "We didn't see you here for your talk, just checking to see if everything was ok..." Oh man. I mean, that is SO embarrassing. Good night. How can you be graceful about leaving a congregation high and dry with no warning? Uhhhhhgggg! Worse yet, they re-scheduled me, so I'm going to be the guy who didn't show up last time. *sighhhh*
And can I just say that I have fallen in love with an older album? Man, there's an early 70s self-titled LP by Fanny Adams that is just an awesome blend of blues and rock. Totally infectious. If you get a kick out of that sort of thing, man, check it out. I'm not a huge fan of this type of music, but I really like this one. Check out "You Don't Bother Me" and try not to sing along. Maybe it's just me. I dunno. If I'm wrong, that's 40 minutes down the drain. Sorry.
*Let me put that in perspective. It does not compare to Chicago's finest. But for central Texas... not bad at all.
