I've got a crick in my neck. Nope, I'm not going anywhere with that sentiment just thought I'd share my discomfort with y'all. Speaking of not going anywhere this is going to be one of those random posts of various tidbits.
Last Thursday, Church Lady dedicated her weekly song posting to me. The song? Jimmy Buffet's Cheeseburger in Paradise. A pretty apt pick since meat and paradise are two of my favorite things. But it does contain that line ... I like mine with lettuce and tomato and by now all of you know my opinion on the evil green leafy stuff -- IT'S THE DEVIL.
In the comments of her post I told church Lady I was planning to eat a tasty Texas style cheeseburger that very night and I'd post pictures here to show her my idea of the perfect Cheeseburger. But guess what I forgot. Not to eat, but to take the picture. You see There I was sitting in this little dive called Barnaby's Beanery along part of old Route 66. I was talking and having a good time with my friends, sipping on a Shiner Bock when the waitress brought out my plate. I took one look at the burger, the heaping plate of homecut fries and dove right in without a second thought of snapping a pic, but I will say this was no ordinary cheeseburger, it was a cornbread cheeseburger. No ordinary bread style buns, nary a sesame seed was in sight. The meat was encased in golden cornbread goodness and let me tell you it was mighty fine. It might sound weird but if you ever get the chance try it, me and my gut wouldn't steer you wrong.
While on the subject of other blogs let me mention one that is only a few months old, but that I predict good things for. The blog title is THE SUV DRIVING BITCH YOUR MOTHER WARNED YOU ABOUT and it is authored by SUV MAMA. Check it out. My favorite post was December 15th's but then again I'm prejudiced since in it she linked to me, mentioned Robert Earl Keen, Steve Earle and the Dixie chicks. December 4th's about Toe Cleavage was quite entertaining as well. Anyway, I have Merry Jelinek to thank for the discovery SUV MAMA.
Christmas went well, but as always was hectic going from place to place to be with various family and friends.
The new TV is now up and it seems freakishly huge in my small living room. We watched a couple of movies on it last night.
I've also been doing a ton of reading though not much writing. Hope to get back in the groove soon. Very soon I'm going to bring back my books read list although in a bit different form than last time.
Bubblewench wanted me to list the booty I received for Christmas so here goes ... Giftcards.
Okay, there was a small thing or two besides gift cards, but most people have long ago given up buying actually things for me. Really only my wife will attempt that. So I will buy a bunch of books, maybe some paraphernalia for my muzzleloader. That is a black powder rifle for those who might not know.
And for those that have asked, yes I did in fact sent that query about now being 35. I'll let y'all know when I hear back.
I've rambled enough. So y'all tell me. Ever have a cornbread cheeseburger? Know any good blogs deserving of more attention. Read any good novels lately? Or share with us your favorite present from under the tree.
