Whizz Quiz? But I didn't study!

As I sit here and listen to some nice blues, it puts me into a good mood. Now that I have finally put my pee into a cup after holding it in for what seems like two eternities stacked on top of one another, I feel even better.
I think I will go first the next time we have a pee test.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it ... wait a minute

This is Texas, right? This is fairly southern Texas, right?
Then why is it snowing??
That was the question I asked myself Wednesday when I saw strange little white flecks falling from the sky as I got ready to do some cardio PT. I was less than thrilled about going out to the track to run up and down the stairs of the stadium. Though I was not exactly motivated to do it, it became a strange test of my own fortitude which ended with me ignoring the cold and pumped up to compete with my fellow soldiers as to who was the most hardcore. All in all, not too bad.
Then the next day came and the snow quckly melted. And the next day it was thankfully temperate again.
Such is Texas I suppose.

Holiday musings

It is now December and time grows ever shorter for my stay here in lovely College Station. The weather has finally decided that it is almost winter and has gone from a comfy 70 degrees in the daytime to a chilly mid 40's. Loverly.
Songwriting has been good; I have finished another song called Chasing Aphrodite. I'm liking it a little more every time I play it. Everyone else seems to like it too; I may have a hit on my hands. I now have places to play Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays now though I pick and choose where and when to play.
I can only handle so many swooning women at a time.
Thanksgiving was nice. I spent it with the Delgado family. I ate, I got stuffed, I drank a few beers, and I played a little. I now know that SSG Delgado's baby daughter is my biggest fan. Have to hook 'em when they're young, ya know?
Christmas is getting closer and I'm procrastinating on my letter to Santa. I've been asking for a Red Rider BB gun for the last twenty years, but haven't received it for safety reasons, or so I've been told. Perhaps I'll just ask for my two front teeth ... in PLATINUM!!!
