It feels somewhat strange not to be worrying about a My Town Monday post this Sunday. In case you missed the news, I have handed over the reins to the My Town Monday wagon to the ever-so-talented Clair Dickson. Clair has already improved the weekly meme and made it better by creating a blog devoted solely to it, aptly named My Town Monday.
The site looks great, so be sure to add it to your Google Reader or become a follower so you can keep up with all the great posts.
Speaking of great blogs, my friend Jennifer Archer has started a new one along with a friend. It is quite hilarious and if you doubt that just get a load of the blog's url and title.
The url? MenopauseMusing.com
And the blog title? Writing Without Periods
To steal the catchphrase of my fellow Husker fan and Good Ol' Boy Larry the Cable Guy ... that's funny, I don't care who you are.
Speaking of funny here's a random thought that hit me this weekend. Maybe Melanie Avila can explain this one. Why is any time you visit Mexico people tell you, Don't drink the water? And sure enough most of us do not. Why take the risk?
Yet, these same people will pay premium import prices to consume Mexican beers like Corona
and Dos Equis?
Does Mexico import the water they use for these beers? Does the alcohol simply kill off the dysentery causing microbes? Or maybe it's the little slice of lime everyone crams into those beers? Either way I'm not a fan of either beer. Give a good dark Shiner over either one. If a beer needs fruit, green fruit at that, to be good than I want no part of it.
But I could use some Mexican water right now to get me back on track. You see, it took me 10 weeks to drop 24 pounds. In the 4 days since my weigh-in I've gained five of that back. Oh well, I have had a good bit of fun these past four days.
Nevertheless, I'm going to be a good boy for a bit and try to get back down, but I fear without the threat of Barry Manilow to motivate me, I am doomed.
And like I said, don't forget to check out the brand new My Town Monday website.
