I'm Famous Again!

Its not every day that you open up an email and see your own face in the pretty header at the top, but thats exactly what happened to me today. Fun times in the Neeley School of Business!

Anyone Remember?

Can anyone (more specifically the Altamesa crowd) name where this song came from? I seriously spent my half my drive home singing it to myself - probably the first time I've even thought of it in over 10 years...

I'll cast all my cares upon you
I'll lay all of my burdens down at your feet
And anytime I don't know what to do
I will cast all my cares upon you

My guess is Maggie will name it first. :)

Life's too short to live in Lubbock...

That was my favorite t-shirt slogan that I saw yesterday at the TCU v Tech. I'm sure we all know that I'm happy right now, so I'll keep this short today with a quick recap.

The Good
We won. Duh!

The Bad
No touchdowns! How boring of a game is that? (Although I'd still like to interject here that we won. :) )

The Stupid
While driving to the game (it took me 1 hour to get to campus when it usually takes 15 minutes, by the way), I saw a guy scalping tickets at a gas station. He had the standard "I NEED TICKETS" sign that supposedly lets people know he has tickets without saying it, but then was standing in the back of his truck waving 4 tickets in the air. Way to be discreet, buddy!

And finally, one of the fun pictures floating around right now. Have a happy Sunday!

Early to Bed....Never to Sleep

I discovered something in undergrad that I had forgotten until tonight: there is no point whatsoever in going to bed early.

Every now and then, I would be really exhausted during the day. I would get home and around 9pm realize that I have nothing left to do. So, I'd decide to go to bed. I'd lay down, thinking about how great it was going to be when I woke up the next day so refreshed. One hour, two hours, three hours go by....and I'm still laying awake, cursing the world because now I'm just rested enough that I'm not going to sleep any time soon. I chalked it up to the noise of having 3 roommates that kept me awake.

So tonight, I was tired all day, decided to go to bed at 9:30pm. Apparently I wasn't tired enough because its now approaching midnight and I am wide awake. No roommates to blame now, just the cruel tricks of nature keeping me up. I have truly learned my lesson now - no going to bed before 11pm. Anyone got any Tylenol PM handy?

Football Season!!

Football season officially kicked off this weekend with both of my teams winning their first games (OU beat UAB and TCU beat Baylor!) This weekend is the first home game for TCU which means the first tailgate of the year!

This year football season takes on a new element for me...I'm doing some consulting work for the Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award, so it will be really fun to keep track of the players on our pre-season watch list while trying to get us some recognition in mainstream American football. Happy Football Season!
