Well, I can't seem to fix it, but at least I know what the problem is.
Yep. All kinds of boring.
I wanted to write an exciting new post and realized that all I ever write about is food, cows, Weegie, and scorpions. Seriously, you can find that kind of stuff anywhere, right? I need to branch out. Become more cosmopolitan.
When you log on to this site each and every morning you need to know that you're in for something fresh. Something unexpected. So I thought about some interesting topics that you all might enjoy.
I love travel. The problem is I just don't do it very often. At least not the kind that most people think of as "travel" - like to go somewhere new and exotic and enjoy fun and exciting things. Like swimming with dolphins or sipping something while reclining on fancy chaise lounges while dressed in a bikini (sweet. mercy. please. no.) And I realized that the most titillating travel-related story I have has to do with my excitement over The Chief reluctantly agreeing to stop at Buc-ee's on a recent trip to the farm so I could peruse their cookbook section. I got a fountain drink with ice (they give Sonic a run for their money) and even bought The Chief some cashews in a bag.
The Chief doesn't go in Buc-ee's. He believes it's a playground of the devil.
So really, I can't write about travel.
Now I guess this is a possibility although I'm not sure how many of you would be anxious to hear my feelings on re-runs of House Hunters or how much I like Trisha Yearwood's new cooking show. I do, by the way. I don't watch American Idol or Survivor and pretty much survive on NCIS re-runs. Seriously, how cute is Tony? And you've got to love the fact that he's so full of himself.
Notice that none of my Entertainment talk even begins to include movies.
Like I said. Boring.
I did go to an Astros game the other day. It was fun until they decided to lose 15-2. I ate a Chicago dog and dribbled mustard all down the front of my aqua and white striped shirt. It was awesome.
That night they introduced the latest young draft pick to the crowd. He was seated near us and I mostly just watched people ask him for autographs. People are bothersome sometimes. He seemed a little overwhelmed. Goodness sakes no wonder, I believe he's only 12. He did have on the most crisply ironed shirt I believe I've ever seen and I was tempted to pass him a secret note written on the back of my ticket and ask what kind of spray starch his mother used but the security guard was looking particularly edgy at the time.
So nothing big on the sports front.
I guess what I'm saying is this is pretty much all I've got:
But I thought it might count as "new and exciting" because this time scorpion babies are riding on the back.
Oh yes, and it's eating a cricket.
I'm looking for topics people. Help a girl out.
