bahama bucks

so i have recently become obsessed
with a delightful summery treat
entitled... the snow cone.

growing up, i adored snow cones.
watermelon was my standard flavor of choice,
but every once in a while,
i'd go for pineapple.
when i was really feeling wild,
i'd get tigers blood!

well, with this hot streak
currently running through texas,
my childhood memories are coming back.
and i've discovered BAHAMA BUCKS!
the greatest snow cone chain EVER.

i will drive 15 minutes to lewisville,
just for a bahama bucks orange snow cone with cream.
also known as, a little piece of heaven.

on my way i have discovered that flowermound
is my untapped resource.

oh summer 2008 should be very interesting!

today i am twenty-three.

i could write a really deep post
about how this has been a great year
[it has]
and how i look forward to this next year
['twill be the best year yet]
but i'd rather just be silly
and tell everyone that i hope to get a wii today.
or a dog.

i am blessed.
and to quote jimmy eat world:
"amazing still it seems; i'll be 23"

saturdays and sundays

at the corner of stars and stripes
and 2499,
i often see a character of my liking.

toll brothers town homes
has somehow commissioned
some guy to stand on a corner
and hold a sign
advertising their discount town homes, i guess.
every saturday and sunday
this rather pathetic looking guy is out there holding
his toll brothers town homes sign
earning dollars and cents.

the funny thing is,
he always has a walkman and earphones on
and is usually waving his sign and dancing
to the beat of whatever eighties metal hair band
he happens to be listening to that day.
and always without recognition of the fact
that he looks like a complete idiot.
he's just doing his his own little world.

the odd thing is,
i look forward to seeing him every weekend.
it has almost become part of the routine.
rock on, def leppard...
