Randomness as promised above...

Well after Last nights deep post I might as well make this one as light hearted as possible.....
        Well first of all can I let you know how amazing my afternoon was?

....I'm going to let you know..well because it is my blog and if you really didn't want to you wouldn't be on this page...anyways!

   First thing when I got home today I plopped down on my couch with my laptop,napping blanket and pillow, and began to watch tosh.0, but of course it was a re-run so I decided to doze off (naturally), But when I woke up it was 6 o' clock and I had that amazing feeling you get up after a successful nap. I decided to watch some British TV on my laptop, and Slowly dozed off....woke up for the second time at 8 o' clock! bam! 4 hour nap....

   Of course I had quite an appetite after this nap so I got the privilege of going to Whataburger or however you spell it..Side note: (Whataburger is my new favorite!)...Why does anyone in Texas eat at Mcdonald's?

      Now I sit on the very same couch watching Food Networks "Chopped"(love this show).....For the first round they had to cook Rocky Mountain Oysters (bull testicles)..And many funny quotes came out of this, (yay immaturity) A lady on the show was a pastry chef and she said, "In Pastries we don't really work with testicles alot" and another man said, "I thought we were really working with oysters, until I heard talk of testicles in the background" haha yaa that is my blog of the day!

     Thanks for reading!

Something different...

Well I decided to take a break from the whole Texas thing for a day and just kind of share with you my thoughts of today.....
So usually I will just post random verses I read on Facebook, but I realized that this is a more passive technique of not only getting my reading done for the day, but also I can write down any verse I half-heartedly read,and paste it on my wall to let everyone know...Tim read his Bible today..lame right?

     So tonight I decided to change it up a bit, and not only read, but try to metabolize it as much as possible by blogging about it...

     Anyways tonight I decided to read out of Psalms....no real reason just my bible app on my iPod told me to read it ....trailing off is easy to do at 1:30 in the AM

      So I read Psalms "when in doubt..go to Psalms" Anyway I came across an amazing verse (that happens a whole bunch in Psalms) ""side note: Psalms or Psalm?"" that is beside the point....

I read Psalm(s) 6 verse 4, It is just an amazing verse! "4 Return, O Lord, and rescue me.
      Save me because of your unfailing love." (New Living Translation)
Yaa So this verse is pretty Neat-o! (good description..right?) I feel like at least for me it was exactly what I needed to read tonight...so ya!!! It is cool to know that God is always there for us and has got our back with his "unfailing love" this verse just kind of lets you know whats up with God and how He loves us all........I guess that is my amazing Bible analysis for tonight!

Lyle Lovett - That's Right (You're Not From Texas)

Texas! pt. II


Here is another random post of what most Texans cannot live without.....This would be Bar-B-Q, no not hot dogs and hamburgers on a grill... we are talking Brisket, Ribs, Pulled Pork, and so much more tasty meats. And their is no shortage of BBQ joints in Austin from the more mainstream Busters BBQ (incorrect, Thank you Alex Bennitt) to the Salt Lick that is in the middle of no where. I have made it my personal goal to find out which ones stand out from the rest! (it is a challenging task..but I'll try my best) Here is a very short list of current leaders; Ribs = County Line, So very tasty! (also amazing garlic mashed potatoes) , Brisket = Rudy's whether it's moist or lean you can't go wrong (amazing creamed corn)....So yaahh there are some of my faves. (sorry if I offended any true Texans who have other opinions on what good Bar-B-Q is, just let me know what you think!)

Why not start this wonderful blog off with some random observations I have made about Texas so far....

1.Football.... I don't think that I have run into a single person who does not have an oppinion on football at some kind of level (mostly males)..whether it'd be The NFL...or of course UT (University of Texas)....or even High school football, These People love their football! The funny thing is that when I was talking to someone a few days back they said that they don't really care as much about Sundays as they do Saturdays....(for watching football of course) It really is a unique love for college football, that I don't think you can see anywhere else. The fans bleed Burnt Orange (not really just to clarify)But I digress, People love their high school football too! I remember the movie (now TV show) Friday Night Lights and thinking,"come on it is high school football it can't be that intense".... I was wrong,very wrong. A game that is going to be played between two high school teams is going to be nationally broadcast from the Ut stadium...kind of a big deal for a high school football game! Am I right? But in conclusion Texans love their football...From pros to High schoolers Texans cannot get enough of it.
      Well seeing as how it is now 1:50 AM I am going to hit the hay...I will be back with some more observations on what Texas appears to be from an observer's point of view.

Starting off Easy

And So It Begins!
