Ok.. what a stressful game. Two sporting events this weekend going into OT (Stars last night). The good news is that Tech won this one. It was awesome. 37-31. Go Red Raiders. Next week they play Texas A&M.

One More Thing...

I mentioned the http://www.iambossy.com/ blog many blogs ago. This is my favorite bossy production. It's a video on youtube. It cracks me up every time I watch it.

C'mon Over - Tony Romo

I have to admit it. I like Jessica Simpson's new song "Come on Over". I envision that she is singing to Tony Romo. I don't consider Tony hot. He is really too young for me, but he is cute. I'd hang with him. Poor Jessie - she just don't come across bright and/or sophisticated. (Unlike Carrie Underwood - boy, does she personify "class", but I digress). I haven't listened to Jessica's CD, but I'm liking this song. Actually sang it at the top of my lungs in the car this morning on my way to work. Singing...

Don't pack your bag

Don't make me wait

I wanna kiss that smile that's on your face

I need you wrapped up in these arms

I want you just the way you are

Come on over

Or you can see if for yourself on youtube.

But I do have to say, I'm not a big fan of them as a couple, but looks like we have to get used to it. *heavy sigh* Note: click on the title "C'mon Over - Tony Romo" to go to Jessica's official website.

(Disclaimer - I never said I have taste in music. Remember, I think Lyle Lovett is the greatest, and I have to admit - I used to listen to Shania Twain)

Downtown Dallas Cuisine


There are several food choices in the Arts District - Downtown. We have Subway and La Madeleine in my building. Caddy corner is The Plaza of the Americas. It has Corner Bakery, McDonalds, KFC, Ziggy Burgers, J Pepe's, China Dragon, etc.. As I was walking to one of the salad shops, I passed this display. I couldn't resist taking a picture - it's classic. Hmm... does a fancy display make it taste any better??? Apparently, Taco Hell is the most impressive choice in the Plaza.

Terra Cotta Warrior Exhibit

My aunt just sent me some pictures from the Exhibit. This one stood out... hmmmm. I wonder why??? Note : Click on the title "Terra Cotta Warrior Exhibit" - it will take you to the website.

Friday ROCKS


It's gorgeous weather in Dallas, Tx these days. Not too hot and not too cold. I start looking forward to Fridays on Thursday. It's Jeans Day at work. Someone always brings in breakfast, so it's a reprieve from oatmeal. Today, Taco Cabana breakfast burritos. My fav-O-rite. The best part of Friday's.... STEAK NIGHT at my Dad.
Tonight is extra cool because the Dallas Stars kick off their season against Columbus Blue Jackets at 7:30pm tonight.

My blogger sidekick strikes again. She sent me this article this morning. We have driven by the market in Plano, and expressed our interest in checking it out sometime. We are definitely going now. Stay tuned. Note - click on the title "Asia World Market" to go to their website.

CD Ejected

On Wednesday morning, at 7:52am, the Lyle Lovett "Live in Texas" CD was freed from my very controlling and ultra-crappy car stereo player. Now, you may be asking yourself, "why does she put CD's in the CD player when she knows that there is a chance they will get stuck? Why? Why? Why? Is she that stupid?"

The answer is "Yes, I am that stupid." I start out tentatively, putting one in and ejecting it right away to make sure it'll come out. When it does, sigh of relief. Then, I get cocky. Then, I just don't care. I take risks. That's me, a risk taker. It's just the way I roll.

The Real "CAT" Shoes Revealed

Apparently, my faithful blogger sidekick couldn't stop until she found the "cat" shoes. She has been searching the web since I posted the "Missed Photo Op" on 10/1. That's a lot of web surfing! Finally, success.. here is a picture of the real shoes that I saw that day. I'm sad to say that they are not "cat" shoes but apparently, "mouse" shoes. For a mere $250, they can be yours.

(Ok... I think she was just shopping for flats and came across these shoes randomly, but that's not quite as exciting)

Ok... my bangs are on the opposite side.. but still... our hair is the same color. ok.. mine is a little lighter... but still..............

"Softer side of Sapp"

The only reason I'm watching "Dancing with the Stars". What is it about football players and dancers? I started watching when Emmitt Smith was on. He rocked it. So does Warren!!!

P.S. I love Rocco too, but bless his heart - he's not that great of a dancer. Brooke is the best. I'm sad that Misty "volleyball girl" is out with injury.

CD Update

As of 7:07 pm this evening, Lyle Lovett "Live in Texas" STILL STUCK IN MY CAR STEREO.
