God Bless America

Top 5 Things I'll Miss About the USA:

5.  Sonic Happy Hour.

If there is a Sonic near your house, and you are not taking advantage of this two hour window of heaven...SHAME ON YOU.  Sonic drinks are already delicious.  And they taste twice as good when they cost half as much.  I visit the local Sonic 3-5 times per week.  Some may consider that unhealthy.  I call it dedication.

4.  Baylor Homecoming.

I love everything about Baylor Homecoming.  Firstly, football.  Normal football games are fun...the Homecoming game is 10x better.  Nothing beats a stadium full of past, present, and future Bears collectively executing that perfectly timed third down "sic 'em."  It's even better if we actually win.

Secondly, Pigskin.  It's like Sing, but without all the bad ones.  Also, it doesn't last 5 hrs like its springtime counterpart.

Thirdly, bonfire.  A picture is worth a thousand words.  Check out that picture.  Check out that fire.  That fire is huge.  Welcome to Baylor.

Fourthly, Viteks.  This has nothing to do with Baylor or its Homecoming, but it has everything to do with Waco.  This little bbq gem is just one of the fantastic eateries that makes Waco tolerable.  Gut pack?  Yes, please.

3.  String Cheese.
Call me crazy, but I love string cheese.  I love string cheese so much.  SO MUCH.  It's clearly the perfect snack food.  You can eat it just as cheese, you can fry it up and serve it with marinara, you can wrap it up in a tortilla with some pizza sauce and have yourself a type of makeshift pizza roll/hot pocket snack sensation.  I would like to shake the hand of the person who invented this delicious cheesy stick and I would like to personally thank them for doing such a favor to humanity.  Now, the million dollar they sell string cheese in Bolivia?  I'm not sure.  I googled it, but google failed me.  I can only hope that Bolivians share in my love/obsession for these cheeses.

2.  Weekend Trips to New Orleans.

Darren - this was probably the best idea we've ever had.  Let's do it again sometime.  PS I miss Raja.

1.  Rosie.

Of course Rosie is my number one.  This dog is my other half.  I mean really...look at that face, those ears, those eyes.  She is irresistible.  Sure, she may drool a little bit, or maybe she howls sometimes, or sheds (apologies to my parents' upholstered furniture), but I think she is perfect.

FUN SCIENCE FACT #2: Armadillos (Family Dasypodidae) get 17-22 hours of sleep per day.  So does Rosie.
