Friday on the bus, one of the regular passengers noticed the driver staring out the window at the woman in the car next to us. (Not the boob guy. This was on a different bus.) It's usually the same 4 or 5 people on this bus and we're always giving each other a hard time about something. So this lady busts the driver for checking out other women when he's married. He tried to deny it and said "No, no, I was looking at her stereo. Yeah that's it." So I jumped in and said "Well, you may have been looking at her rack system, but it wasn't a stereo." Everyone on the bus cracked up. I think I may have embarrassed the driver a bit. It just kind of flew out of my mouth. I wasn't even thinking. No one I have told this story to thought it was that funny. Maybe you had to be there, but I thought it was a riot.

Saturday, Dad and I went to Tulsa for TU's game against Rice. Sadly there is no winning streak to get excited about. TU blew some great scoring opportunities and lost the game. It rained almost the entire game and it was pretty chilly. There were maybe 3,000 people at the game. It was still fun. Dad and I had fun yelling at Coach Burns and cracking jokes with the die-hards that sit by us. I'm ready for this miserable season to be over. It's funny how I can't wait for football season to start, then about half way through the season I just can't wait for it to end. It's not easy being a TU fan.

After the game we took my Grandmother out to dinner. We went to this over-priced Bar-b-q place. The food is good, but it's a total rip off. You get 3 ribs on a small rib dinner and 4 on a large. The large is $2 more. What's really interesting is that if you just want to add extra ribs, they're $1.50 each. Hmm, that's pretty shady if you ask me. Dad was cracking me up. He asked the waitress if there was some way he could get enough ribs to make a meal. She said, "You can get a pound for the same price as the meal but it doesn't come with sides and you get about 4 ribs." Uh, dumbass, hello? Now there's no way in hell 4 ribs is a pound. And why would anyone pay for a pound when a meal with sides is the same price? It's crazy. I wonder if the genius who came up with this pricing scheme had anything to do with keeping the books at Enron.

Sunday I did the usual. Slept late, had lunch with the family then went home to watch football and NASCAR. I also did my laundry and cracked a lot of pecans. I'm trying to get rid of last year's pecan crop since this year's crop should start coming down any day now. I have one bucket left that needs to be cracked. I've been working on them while I watch TV. Oh what an exciting life I lead.

Have a nice day.
