It’s Monday

Went to see my uncle today. Found him sitting up right in his wheelchair with a big grin on his face. He spoke proudly of how much he’d accomplished today—talking about how many hours of therapy he’d done and how many different places they made him walk. I asked him if the rehab nurses were [...]

Texas is too fucking hot

to do anything in, like ever. My brothers and I are sitting around watching episodes of The Big Bang Theory waiting for the sun to go down so they can start grilling for father’s day. They are enjoying The Big Bang Theory unlike last nights showing of Open Water. Despite the fact that I told [...]

I’m in Austin

On Saturday night we went to The Scoot Inn to a 60′s themed beach party night and the only thing that was really 60′s about it was the band’s sound and one girl walking around in a beehive hairdo.  Everything else about it was a regular night at the bar getting drunk.  Well, minus the [...]
