I met Wendy this afternoon in Davidson. I introduced myself, "Howdy, I'm Adam." Wendy said she recognized me from this blog which was weird since I didn't know Wendy and we'd only responded via email for about two hours this morning. She googled my name this morning to make sure her Stomp tickets weren't going to some jackass. After reading this blog and forwarding it to her sister in Thaint Louisth, she miraculously concluded I'm not a jackass. That's amazing. I took a picture of Wendy but for some reason didn't save it on my phone, which makes me a jackass. I saw STOMP! ten years ago in college and look forward to watching a bunch of dudes make cool sounds by beating the shit out of trash cans again.

TV#3 is my favorite. It's the shitter tv. Unfortunately I only had to pee one time.
Travers ran a ton of cable for TV#4. The outdoor television is where tv's Kris Cook and Mike Solarte watched the game. Cook may or may not have had some cash riding on the game.
He was in Vegas for NASCAR testing last week and took the plunge on a parlay taking the Giants and the points and the under. Touchdown!
My pockets are always full of things some may consider crap but they're important to me. In my right pocket sits my big assed wallet. In my left pocket resides lip balm, keys, gum, camera and phone. Friday night, I added a small box with a ring inside. Usually I'll sit down on the couch with the lady and she'll quickly tell me to empty my pockets because they poke her hips when she sits next to me. Well, it took about an hour Friday night for her to ask so I stood up and pulled out the box o' ring first. She gave it a weird look and didn't realize what I was doing. When I opened the box she let out a few excited sqeals as I proposed. Oh, she said yes, too! We're looking at a fall wedding. There's already a website(which she agreed to use www.thisweddingmayormaynotsuck.com for but we decided for our parent's sake we'd keep it simple. She's handling all of the website duties.) but not an exact date or location.
Saturday we made a bunch of phone calls and went on the tour of families to make the announcement. Then Saturday night we had sister Anna's birthday party. Anna was a great sport about it. It didn't dawn on me until midweek the engagement would fall on Anna's birthday and I felt kinda shitty about it, but she was cool. Happy Birthday Anna!
Now that The Lady is The Fiancee, I reckon I'll simply call her Jennifer from now on. I've been practicing my yes ma'am's and whatever you think will be just fine with me honey's. I'm getting pretty good at it.
The board of county commissioners will likely appoint the guy that was supposed to win Tuesday night at their regular meeting. He isn't black and that will likely cause even more controversy, but at least most of that controversy will hopefully be in the courtroom where cameras aren't allowed. By the way, Al Sharpton is pretty entertaining and didn't even offend me regardless of the way I feel about the issues he discussed. You could almost consider me an Al Sharpton fan. Some of the other local leaders tried to make me feel bad for being a member of the media and for being white. I smiled when they looked at me.
I wish everyone was the same color, or didn't give a shit what color we all are.
