New Friend on the Blog Roll to the Right

Just want to point out the new link on the blog roll. This is someone who wishes to remain anonymous, but did give me permission to add the link under an alias. Not very creatively, I came up with "Fun Travel Buddy". The reading is always entertaining and creative, unlike what you're used to finding here. Enjoy

I know a bourbon lover or two

That sounds funny, but wasn't meant in a funny way - really. There's no double entendre, but I think it sounds like there could be if you try hard enough.

Anyway, as usual, I'm stealing a link from The Agitator. The post has some fun tidbits on American bourbon, which deserves more props than it usually gets.

Bourbon is my preferred liquor, though I still can't drink it straight, or even on the rocks. Because of that, I don't yet drink "the good stuff." I just can't bring myself to mix Bookers with Coke. So, Jack is the one for me.

The back door is open, and I hear a lovely sound.

Yeah, I know it's not the 16 inches we need, and, yes, my brain is saying I should know better. For me, though, it's worth a wink and a thank you, and in my heart, there is a smile.

please pass on the word

I think that a particular resident of Athens, formerly of Nashville, may be interested in this show, of the southwest Texas/Nashville variety, on Thursday night. I am indescribably sad that I cannot attend due to a huge commitment on Friday for which I absolutely must be prepared (how formal of me). Of all the people I know, though, there is really only one that may like to see the show. Someone, please pass the word onto him in case he doesn't read this very often, which I suspect is the case.

Those of us who enjoy country music must look out for each other.


Oh, and this band is playing at Smith's Olde Bar tomorrow night. Another one I can't go see.

It ain't for the freedom we have here, that's for sure

Yep, if you know me, you probably aren't surprised by the fact that I still support the war in Iraq, and certainly the troops who are over there.

But make no mistake, I do not believe that the war is about fighting for the freedom we have here in the US. And things like this are exactly why I don't harbor that delusion. Because the other great delusion is that we have freedom here.

When will there be another revolution?

hat tip: The Agitator, as usual.

Sorry, having a bit of a pessimistic day.

Wow, sometimes I get so antsy. Tonight is one of those times. I've been so deep in some stuff for the last year +, and I'm finally getting burned out. The timing works, though, because it'll all be over one way or the other in a couple weeks. Well, at least for a month or so.

But the burnout has made me antsy. I've been in the same place with work for seven years now, and Dave and I are finally close to having the house the way we want it - or as close to that as we can get it. And I've been focused on such mundane things for the last little while - things like studying, the house, debt, and work - with little or no exercise in the last six months, that I'm really feeling the need for something else. I don't know what. Just something.


Ah, and, noticing the debt mention earlier, said new, different, interesting and meaningful thing has to be cheap/free.


Oh, and I miss wearing hats. I used to wear hats. I should wear hats more often.
