Monday's Missives

How to tell if pasketti noodles are done- take a strand and throw it against the cabinet door. If it sticks you're good to go.

  • 11/24/2013 My moms first name was Vera- she hated it. 
  • It is freezing rain outside. Although it is a ridiculous thought because I would be miserable, I wish I were in a tent somewhere dragging myself out of a sleeping bag.
  • The best Army slang for anything? A sleeping bag is called a fart sack. Isn't that the best?
    I found this little skull, drilled it out and glued it onto this pencil and gave it to the medical records clerk in my office for Halloween.

    Found in Town Creek. Those are crumbled up soda crackers. 

  • 11/23/2013 at 2132 there is a simply awful SYFY movie on called Stonado. The premise seems to be there is a tornado that is full of stones. Said stones explode when they're touched after landing. There are not words for how terrible that movie is. The actors seem mostly competent but literally mortified to be in that abortion of a movie.
  • We had passable crepes at the Country Ranch Cafe (I think that is what it is called) on Main street. The coffee was exquisitely terrible though. It was so bad it was interesting to savor the flavor and ruminate over the cup- it even smelled bad.
  • Last night (11/22/2013) I went into the attic to oil that screaming turbine. There was a grizzly bear wolverine squirrel face to face with me when I first drug myself up. He was huge. I didn't get a picture but I did get a picture of the sparrow it had torn to shreds and left in front of it's nest. He stretched himself out behind a joist to hide from me after leaving the nest.
    Camping pro tip: Shove silk underwear and a beanie into a pair of wool socks and roll them up in your sleeping bag.  They'll make a little pillow when it isn't too cold and be easier to find and be all in spot to get into them easily when it is freezing up in there.

  • We went to Copper Creek last night (11/20/2013). The food was good, the atmosphere great and the music awesome. Kirk House was there jamming. We carried the last part of the show with him by making all the requests. I requested Jolene- in the manner of Jack White. He played around with it for a minute but felt like he hadn't practiced it enough to play it publicly. We requested Country Boy Can Survive. He busted out laughing and said, OK, I'll try not to blackify this too much but if I do, don't hold it against me- it just comes natural. He is a good, super talented guy.
  • I want  love to walk right up and bite me grab a hold of me and fight me leave me dying on the ground.

Freezing rain?

I actually had to go pull out a light jacket this week here in Houston. It was terrible.
