It appears that Australia has completely lost the war on drugs and declared a war against the evil underworld of Dog Poop. DNA testing? Rewards? I think this has struck quite a chord with the 6th grade since of humor that I maintain. I can just see the signs along the road...

The Whataburger Files...
So i head into Whataburger on Beach Street earlier... (Since it's in NE FTW, that's pronounced beee-ach street.) I do my best to order by number to reduce the chance of stumbling on the language barrier (how have I done anything in my life without learning Es Spanole?). But then you get to the part where you have to say No Pickles No Onions with Cheese and Jalepeno's (see, I do know some spanish...) and they repeat an you want the onions and pickles no jalepenos, you want cheese? bla bla bla AND NO MUSTARD. of course this translates to the cook as He said MO MUSTAD! and they slather it up with that biley infectious tangy goo and you don't catch it until you get back to your office and say damn they put mustard on it again but eat it anyway, and what do you know, IT'S Pretty Good. (sorry, I couldn't afford extra punctuation in the last part). And now I ask myself a question of the ages: How much stuff is there that I like to eat that I have only eaten on accident up to the point I started liking it? It mostly applies just to fast food, but it's quite a bit of stuff. (FYI - Brian Burns is on the radio right now). Sweet & Sour sauce, pickles, Subway, fried oysters, diet coke, i'm sure there's more. But I guarantee that if you took that list and blended it all together, it would taste like sheeee-it. (unless you added garlic butter and tobasco sauce).

So I'm playing with Earl Bishop this weekend at Tex's Taphouse in Dallas, doing the song-swap songwriter thing that we do so well. Thought I'd call Stehen Pointer to see if he'd play lead with us... Of course he would... For a price. He's worth paying. Just now that you know I've got to pay someone else, you should come out and see me so we'll make some more. He's a killer lead player, great songwriter, good friend of mine, and a general dick when he wants to be. Makes him a well rounded good guy. He has a CD out, Panhandle to Padre. Available at RecordTown in FTW for $15. Really good stuff, I'd compare him to a young Jack Ingram with a little Pat green thrown in for good measure. And, I think he's the only person in the World that doesn't have a website.

I was going to write something here about the differences between how stuff was this time
last year and how it is now, but screw it. Moving on. Not dwelling, not thinking. That, in my
opinion, is a sign of recovery and i sign that we're in control.

I can't believe I've come up with nothing to write about today. Pretty calm around here.
I'll be playing with Earl Bishop this Saturday night in Dallas at Tex's Taphouse/Texadelphia... 9:30pm.
You know, I guess I could just make something up and everybody would be like Man That's Cool and nobody would ever know. Anyway, I was at the bank earlier and I stopped a combo child abduction/bank robbery and they gave me the money instead. It was pretty cool, but when I left, the sky and ground had switched places, and I stepped out the door and fell up into the sky and twisted my ankle when I landed/hit the ground. It was quite strange looking down into the sky and still seeing the buildings where the ground used to be. Unfortunately when I landed, I dropped the money from the bank robbery and the lizzardbirds and llamadogs snagged it and went to see Jason Boland in Oklahoma. I guess that's why I work so I don't have to worry about getting my $ stolen like that since I've got direct deposit.

OK, I think this is second to my last WTF website... But here it is, what you've all been waiting for,

Yesterday's Horned Frogs v. Bearcats game was one of the kinda games that makes me watch football. I just thought I'b be writing something different...
Nick Browne broke his own confrence record with five field goals. TCU had about 4 interecptions. They came back after being scored on 2 minutes into the game. They had 16 penalties last time I checked. It went into overtime, and it was over as quick as the first time they were scored on, and killed by an interception.
So the team I was rooting for lost. Since I don't bet, what was I out? I guess if they were to loose like 5 or 6 in a row, it'd be different, but this was the first game. It was definitely the kind of game that will have me back watching the next one... We've got Northwestern coming up nest week (there) and SMU on the 14th (here)... Football season is here. What makes me really excited about football seasons? I think it's have to be the declining temperatures that come along with it.

Well, I just put in my notice that I'd be leaving my job as of the first of October. Not as painful as I thought, but I did get the "who the hell else is going to hire you look." It makes me feel good knowing I've got more than one offer, and now it's up to me to narrow it down from here.

You know, I feel safer already. I'm sure there's some sort of science behind this, but it's kind of funny when you hear about russian scientists encouraging wild Jackals to mate with domesticated dogs in the name of airport security. I was just wondering... Are the dogs doing this in the airport or are they going to the domesticated dogs houses>
