Miscellaneous Round Up

Good morning all you happy people. I thought I’d take a few minutes to give you a random update since I don’t have time to delve deeply into the burning hot topics awaiting escape from my feeble brain.

First, I found out that the end of my life as I know it begins on Monday, August 15. That’s when classes for law school starts. The school automatically registers me for classes and puts me in a writing section, etc. since the first year law curriculum is the same for everyone. Now I just have to figure out how I’m going to pay for this. I owe, I owe…it’s off to work I go.

I went in for a second opinion on the amazing stink eye on Wednesday. This eye doc happened to be the one who performed cataract surgery on a family member and got the eyesight back to 20/20 from “Is that stoplight red or green?” He took one look and said I had a case of “severe” iritis. According to him, the iris is adhering to the lens in 5 places. At least it was. Thursday night I noticed that the pupil in the right eye now looks like a flat tire. At the follow up appointment with him on Friday, he said that’s a good sign as it means there’s only one adhesion left. Whatever. My vision is still blurry out of the right eye.

A week ago Thursday, The Queen and I made a road trip to Tulsa, Oklahoma for business. We drove up Wednesday night and spent the night. If anyone of you reading this actually lives in the state, would you please do me a favor and find the head of your fair state’s transportation department and whollop him upside the head with a 2 x 4?

Seriously. It seems like every freaking road between Dallas and Tulsa was under construction. The interchange from US 69 to Indian Nation Turnpike. Closed. After detouring through scenic, downtown McAlester to the other entrance to INT, it was shut down because an 18 wheeler overturned. Coming into Tulsa, ALL (and I do mean ALL) the highways in the area of downtown we needed to go to were closed effectively destroying the directions we had to get to our hotel.

The kicker was our return trip though. We stopped for dinner at Western Sizzlin in McAlester since our options were extremely limited. After dinner, I went to the rest room before we got back onto the road. I really should have gotten a picture of this restroom. It would have fit right in at a high end steakhouse. There were armchairs and a bench and everything. Anywizz, after finishing business and while washing my hands, two young female employees walked in without announcing themselves. I just stared at them, and one of them said “Oh, sorry.” while the other one continued to babble incessantly about whatever it was they were talking about when they came in. When I came out, The Queen and I exchanged WTH? looks and gestures while I walked back to the table. She told me once we got back in the car that she now knows how I feel when she’s around other me. She said she felt very possessive, jealous, and “just what are those girls doing going near my man”, etc. I’m so proud.

Last, but not least, is a little scene from Friday night. The Queen, Nephew Ginger Boy and I were walking in downtown Fort Worth. In Sundance Square across from 8.0, we saw a short, thin woman “pole dancing” with a parking meter. She apparently had not a care in the world. Made me wish we had the camera with us.


  1. Most of the best pole dancers start with parking meters. Stop signs are like little league.

  2. North, I would have thought parking meters were little league and stop signs were AAA.
