Baptist BBQ, typo, and a one-legged Uncle Sam

Happy Friday. It is a beautiful day outside. I believe it's 83 degrees with a nice breeze. Too bad Myriam isn't here to enjoy it with me. Speaking of Myriam, she will be home in 4 days. 4 DAYS!!!!! YAY! She has been gone for 30 days and I am very ready for her to come home. I miss her a lot. The Sister Spit Tour is going very well. Tonight they are in Minneapolis, Sunday is Madison Wisconsin, and Monday is Chicago.

I've recently noticed a trend with music that I do not understand. What is up with artists coming out with part II and part III of songs? Is it because they have run out of ideas so they just add to whatever is already out there? I do not think it should be allowed.

I also do not think athletes and musicians should get to return after they retire. Once they say they are gonna leave--they should just leave. See--when they say they are going to retire fans get really freaked out then spend a ton of money to go see them perform or play before they go Then, the celebrity decides that he or she is gonna stay for awhile more. That is not ok. These fans should get refunds when that happens. Tina Turner is on like her eighth farewell tour, Michael Jordan came back to basketball like three hundred times, and don't even get me started on The Judds.

It's tax day. I completely forgot to do them. Oh well. They will get done eventually.  Every year around tax time, local stores hire street people to put on costumes and wave signs around in an attempt to draw more business. Today I saw a man with one leg dressed as Uncle Sam and a woman with no teeth dressed as the Statue of Liberty. I was disgusted and fascinated at the same time. Apparently, these people receive $20 a day. I'm not really sure what else to say about it. America is a very interesting place.

A school in Chicago has banned lunches made from home. The school says that it wants the students to get away from their families bad eating habits. Now, students must eat the school lunches or go hungry. Many students are opting for the latter. Are school lunches healthy? I didn't think so. Didn't papa Bush say that schools can consider ketchup a vegetable?  Shouldn't they be focusing on math or something?

Ok--two interesting fast food is pretty cool--the other--not so much. Churches chicken is now making tacos. NO! They need to stick with chicken. Taco Bell is trying out a doritos flavored taco shell. I think that sounds amazing. The only thing would be super messy so I suggest that they just have the dorito part on the inside of the shell.

Found a new fun place for lunch. The Baptist Church on Magnolia and Anaheim in Long Beach makes BBQ on Fridays. All you do is stop in, tell them what you want--and BAM--there ya go.  Ok--I'll say it--it's a black church--and let me tell you--the food is AMAZING and all of the women have great hair. Everyone called me baby. I got the combo which was $12. It consisted of 4 huge ribs, 3 pieces of chicken, 2 full hot links, potato salad, beans, mac and cheese, and peach cobbler. I weighed it--6 lbs. I have enough food for the weekend. One of the women was talking to me while I was waiting for my food and she was telling that the choir is saving up for new robes. They are currently doing a cans for the choir drive. I went home and brought back four garbage bags full of cans. She gave me a kiss and an extra peach cobbler. Oh--and I've been invited to church on Sunday. I LOVE black baptist churches. I may just go.

The best story that I heard on the news this week was the one about the couple that won the lottery---only to find out that there was a typo in the newspaper. WTF. They should sue the newspaper. Imagine--winning the lottery then calling your boss to tell him that he's an idiot and that you quit. Woops--now you find out that there was a typo in the paper. Oh dear. What now?

That's all I got for today. Thanks for reading. Much love.


  1. wow. all that for $12...that's awesome. love reading the blog, TJ...keep on writing. :)


  2. Glad you enjoyed the BBQ! Isn't it insane how much food you get? Too bad it's only Fridays!

  3. Ha ha . . . this blog is funny! Waaaay back when I was in high school, I paid hard-earned money to go to Ozzy Osbourne's Farewell Tour. One year later, I went to Ozzy's Retirement Sucks Tour . . . 15 years later, Ozzy is still at it. WTF? Six pounds of BBQ . . . awwwe, I was hoping it was weed or chocolate. :)

  4. I think we saw that BBQ or one like it when I was out there. Why didn't we stop? Now I'm a vegetarian, so I totally missed out!

  5. Is the BBQ all day? 'Cause I can send Summer by there on the way back from work Fri Eve for some yum yum BBQ treat! :)

  6. Also, a note on school lunches. Just from a price standpoint, the banning of home lunches is ridiculous. At the school where I work, lunches are $3.25...$3.25 for 3 chicken nuggets, drink, and salad bar and the kids never take the salad bar unless you count 3 scoops of croutons as salad. If you send your kid to school with a sandwich, drink, and chips or carrot sticks, it's a whole lot cheaper than $3.25. Cheaper and healthier.

  7. I can't wait to see you tigs!
