Congratulations to Lass for completing her marathon this weekend. I did my part by sponsoring her for mile #4 :-) And that was integral, I'm sure...
The Agony of Victory?
So, yeah, Bama is 7-0! Saturday's game was nerve-wracking as we squeaked out a 6-3 win over Tennessee, one of our biggest rivals. We made a field goal with 13 seconds left to win. It was maybe the most exciting ending of any game I've been to. However, I've decided that watching a Bama game, for me, is three hours of anxiety, worry, stress, and sometimes depression, and about ten minutes of jubilation. Aren't these things supposed to be fun?
Here's a pic I took of some random fans before the game:
Looks like a fun group :-)
For those who don't know, Tennessee's coach is a rather um, portly, individual, who seems to just get larger and larger every year. So that was a reference to him.
I've actually eaten at two new establishments in the area in the past few days. Last Thursday, we had dinner at the new JW Steakhouse at Priceville. Mine was good. I just had a cheeseburger. Others had mixed results. It's a bit pricier than the Moulton Steakhouse and Oh Bryan's, as well. Grade: C-
Then tonight, we went to the new Pizza Inn at Somerville. It was delicious. Decatur used to have a Pizza Inn years ago. That's the first one I've been to in a long time. Ran into Lil Bootay's brother there. The only thing was, they have a couple of TV's, so I asked the waitress if I could change the channel. She said OK. It was on Fox, and I wanted to turn to ABC for Monday Night Football. So I pushed the channel button and it wouldn't change. She said, "I think we only have one channel." What the crap? It was Fox. It's not like they were piping in some kind of pizza propaganda. That, I could understand. Grade: A-
Ya Deerty Bone
Discussed Halloween costumes today. Still want to go as Nelly. I think I could pull it off. Gold tooth, band-aid, earrings, bandana, wife-beater, silver chain, etc. However, it would be really sad to dress up and no one know what you were supposed to be. Anyone wanna go as Kelly Rowland? "Bone I... love you... Bone I... need you..." ;-)
Walking thru the Wal-Mart toy department today, I realized that I think I would still play with toys if it were socially acceptable.
It was cold here today. Temps in the 30's last night. We went from short sleeve weather to winter coat weather basically overnight. We skipped right over long sleeve stage.
Cold weather means hot chocolate. And I love hot chocolate. I've yet to have my first cup this year though.
Still test-driving the car. Longest test-drive in history. Can I common-law take over ownership of this car if I just drive it long enough? I Carfax'd it today. It's been in one accident. The mileage doesn't seem to have been tampered with.
It's my tradition to rent a couple of scary movies around Halloween. I usually end up watching them by myself in the dark.
My favorite scary movie, I think, is the original Psycho.
Saturday I ate a slice of cheese pizza before the game, a hot dog at the game, and a greasy barbecue sandwich on the way home. Healthy!
"I'd love you even if you were bald." Someone said those words to me recently when I was talking about getting a few gray hairs. Kinda sweet, doncha think?
When the skies outside are dark and dreary and cloudy and gray, yet your world still seems brighter than the sun... that's an amazing thing.
"I said what about Breakfast at Tiffany's. She said I think I remember the film, and as I recall I think we both kind of liked it. And I said, well that's the one thing we've got..."
