The Slippers

To say I have had the best weekend ever would be something of an understatement. I think the only thing I didn't accomplish this weekend was authoring a valid peace treaty between Hamas and Israel, but it's coming ... I just know it is.

Though it poured rain Friday night Saturday dawned positively gorgeous and our company picnic went off without a hitch. Softball, great lunch, and fun with co-workers on a glorious April day. What could be better? If you guessed meeting up with your homeboy to watch the men's Olympic qualifier at the Tuscaloosa Tripalooza, you're right! Down here in West Alabama, we get excited when things happen in our lil' ol' town. Sorta like the kids in the movie "Coal Miner's Daughter" when Doo comes driving up and they be all "Stranger Comin'! Stranger Comin'!" I did get some really cool photos and I'll post more tomorrow. It was inspiring to say the least.

Moving right along, I did get my sushi and beer on with another homey, then yesterday I was bitten with my crazy cleaning bug and my apt is all sparkling AND I finally hung these hooks in my closet for my plethora of baseball caps and decided to purge some clothing. Which brings me to my maroon vinyl Airwalk sneakers that I totally bought in 1995 and haven't worn since 1996. Even though I try I can't let go. But now I am. But the big question is, do I send them to my friend in New Orleans for his costume closet, or to local charity thrift shop? It seems logical to send them back to NOLA, from whence they came. Total purchase from Bongo back in the day. God I miss that store.
