My Blog

On a full day of school (Monday or Wednesday), I have a total of four hours and twenty minutes of downtime between classes. Not joking. I started a blog to keep from dying of boredom.

Now that we've got the gift thingy solved what about the FOOD?
Are we doing finger foods or meats, vegetables and bread? Or a combination? Jennifer is working on a Honey Baked ham and eggnog. Yum. That's the only specifics that have been mentioned. I'm thinking stuffed mushrooms and hot drummies. Tofu turkey anyone?

I'm in favor of playing games and then having a selection of Dollar General gifts that winners of the games pick from. Every individual that is going to play a game, brings a $2 gift.(candy, socks, nuts, ) In addition to that, we could all put money in the pot and donate to a worthy cause. Judy, Emily and I had talked about the Roane Animal shelter in Janie's name. Jennifer had suggested giving to a drug rehab organization. I think either would honor Janie.

Pappy has requested that we not have the "White Elephant" type gift exchange this year. His reason being "We all are getting along so well, I don't want any feelings hurt and this is just too good of an opportunity for someone to get their feelings stepped on". I personally don't think anyone has gotten their feelings hurt during our gift exchanges, we realize it's all in fun. You might end up with the most coveted present or with something that's been re-gifted. So I guess we're up for suggestions on gifts. I'm picking up small, inexpensive gifts for everyone ( spending more on the kids and Memaw and Pappy) which range from salt shakers to steering wheel covers. But I enjoy doing it and Walmart and the Dollar General store love to see me coming. Earl always knows what he's getting from me...good ol' Olvatine. It's our Christmas tradition.

Special Anaranjado del Flor

So I'm out to dinner with my friend Cierra at On The Border, munchin' on a burrito, when a mariachi band walked through the door. Apparently, some mexican kid rented them for his birthday party. They do some standards ("La Bamba", "La Cucaracha") and then, surprisingly, they go into "Orange Blossom Special". 

Bradbury in a mexican restaurant.

It was weird.


P.S. We went and saw "Role Models" afterwards. I give it a 8/10

Online Existence

Once I found out Web site registration was only $10, I couldn't resist buying my own name and linking it to a free blogger site (for now). Check out I have no real plans for it now but, like a prospector buying a claim site, you never know what you might dig up in the future. The header photo was taken in front of my house in the 1920s. I just thought it was cool.
