Could You? (31)

"Not quite a year since she went away, Rosanna yeah..., now she's gone and I have to say..., meet you all the way..., Rosanna yeah, meet you all the way..., Rosanna yeah..."
-Toto- (Rosanna)

"When fighting clowns, go for the juggler..." -Sign in the Services Building at the University of Texas at Austin-

"And I was thinking if, you were lonely, maybe we could leave here and no one would know..."
-Matchbox Twenty- (Back To Good)

Could you just suck it up and put some effort into it Coach?...  Good evening everyone.  Despite the fact that I worked 11 hours on Monday, 12 hours yesterday, and 12 hours today, I'm going to tough it out and put together a post JUST FOR YOU...  ;)

Could you not have cravings please?  So..., on that first Austin trip to Walmart, the one where I was initially told that the paper bags cost $10.00 (yeah, you know the one)..., well, I thought that it would be a good idea to pick up some macaroni salad and some potato salad.  WELL, being the price-conscious (cheap) person that I am, I HAD TO buy the four-pound container of each salad because it's cheaper by the ounce to do so.  Sooooo, how much salad did Coach return home with?  (You wanted math homework, right?)  If you answered EIGHT POUNDS of salad, you're correct...  Guess who was eating macaroni and/or potato salad EVERY DAY until each was gone...  Umm hmm....  You know, they have expiration dates or something...

Could you please, please give us some more numbers in the form at statistics Coach?  As my staff was gearing up for the big football season that is approaching, it seems that somebody forgot to tell me to pass along word that my little blog went over 45,000 total views over the weekend.  My statisticians also neglected to tell me to mention that my Twitter account now has over 3,000 followers, another mark which was passed this weekend.  Thanks again for reading the blog and for the follows on Twitter - hopefully you're big football fans and you enjoy repeated attempts at humor, because you're in for a lot of both in the near future...  :)

Could you tell me why you're so busy?  Last Tuesday evening I was out for a leisurely walk along 24th Street at just after 11:00 p.m. when I strolled by Cain & Abel's, which had a PACKED PATIO (porch?  well, it was outside)...  ANYWAY, the..., outside area was quiet for the rest of the week, and then when I was walking home from work last night (another Tuesday), it was PACKED once again, and this was before 9:00 p.m.  I stopped and asked the doorguy what it is about Tuesday, and he said that domestic beers are only $1.00.  I asked "when?" - and he responded. "now..."  I then asked, "WHEN??" - and he responded, "until 2:00 a.m..."  (This conversation was going like Abbott and Costello's "Who's On First?")  Then I said, "8 o'clock, 7 o'clock..., what time does it start?"  He answered, "all day..."  OOPS, I have to interrupt this for BREAKING NEWS!!!

Could you MAKE MY NIGHT?!  Is is 10:20 p.m. right now as I'm typing this, and as I typed in the phrase "all day...," I heard a KNOCK KNOCK on my door, followed by the sound of HURRIED FOOTSTEPS down the stairs...  I put on a ballcap before I answered the door, but when I did, I found this scrawled, handwritten-in-pencil note hanging outside:  "(Sorry)  I was kind of drunk when I wrote this, but! - I used to live here  it's a great place!!!  enjoy the location and best of luck - "Heart" (I don't know how to make a heart with my keyboard) taylor"

HMMMM...  :)  The note was left for me on a sheet of typing paper, but on the back are a couple of typed questions, which are the only other clues provided about the person who left this note...

Question 1:  What is the Full Spectrum Extra Lifting Creme and Color Catalyst Ratio?  The answer written down (in black sharpie) is 1:2.

Question 2:  What is the Full Spectrum Universal DN?  The list of answers below includes:  designed for vsl (I think, kinda messy) with all 3; color lines permenant (spelled wrong), deep, 3; deposit only; and shine & tone...

Well, God bless America, God bless UT, and God bless West Campus...  And God bless Taylor of course...  :P  I'm not topping this tonight, so have a good one and I'll see you again tomorrow!



  1. Over 3,000 - my Twitter tag is at the top of this page... When I say I have 3 facebook friends and 4 Twitter followers (whatever number I happen to choose that day), I'm being a little deceptive... ;)
