Yo Momma

I found this site through another friend's blog, and I absolutely LOVE it! Like the "laugh out loud to myself" kind of love. Check it:

Postcards from Yo Momma

If I could record phone conversations and post them on this site, I think Patti would have her own page! Gotta love moms :)

Check out my friend's blog too: It's pretty darn cool. For real.

Rock the Vote

While it's important to vote in the national election, it's equally important to vote in Ride Texas Magazine's "Best In Texas" issue.

Here is the link for the 2009 ballot:

Use your power.
And if you need any help knowing who to vote for, I can help you out.
(Hint, it starts with "S" and ends with "trokers Dallas")

And your little dog, too

I watched the show "Greatest American Dog" for the first time last night. I almost changed the channel because, well, it's probably not the "Greatest American Show" on TV. But then, something changed my mind. A huge elephant.

Check out the bravest little dog I've ever seen:

I don't know about your dog, but Jack certainly would NOT just sit there and let a gigantic elephant get that close to him. And none of the other dogs on the show wouldn't either!

This little pup didn't move or even bark at it once! Amazing.

Watch the full episode here (if you really care that much): Greatest American Dog

What's for breakfast?

I was inspired by my ipod on my morning walk today...

Starfish and Coffee, Maple Syrup and Jam.
A Butterscotch cloud, a Tangerine, and a side order of Ham.

And if you set your mind free baby, maybe you'll understand
starfish and coffee, maple syrup and jam.

6 years of amazingness!

Listen to this 6 yr old sing! She was on Britian's Got Talent and she could give several of our current American pop stars a run for their money!

Connie Talbot = awesome!

Apartment for Rent

It's really nice. 1 bedroom. 1 bath. Third floor with a great view of the parking lot. Comes with hyper dog (requires 3 walks a day, minimum), a fridge full of condiments, lots of DVDs, and a full washer and dryer.

I'm putting it up for rent because I now live at work and would rather not deal with the commute.

Here is a short list of reasons I now sleep on my office floor:
-Big Dogs of Dallas SPCA adoption and fundraising event (Aug 30)
-Free Pizza Thursdays (Every Thursday starting Sept 4)
-Weekly Lingerie Contests (Every Tuesday, pending sponsorship)
-Hot Summer Nights Classic Car Show (Sept 13)
-Hot Rod Cruise Night (Every Saturday night starting Sept 20)
-Upcoming Strokers 13th Anniversary Party (Oct 10-12)
-Live Fest: Battle for Dallas (Battle of the Bands at Strokers Ink, Nov 8)

Just a few things to do before now and then... I'll be here if you need me.

Common Knowledge

My very intelligent friend, KPA, sent me this game...

Let me know how you do!

Legal at 18. Almost.

If an 18 year old can vote, smoke, serve in the military, serve on juries, and marry another adult without parental consent, then why can't they drink?

Should the drinking age be lowered from 21 to 18?

The debate has surfaced again... we'll see if it goes anywhere.

Flutter By, Butterfly

Anyone in the DFW area should make plans to attend the Northeast Tarrant County Kiwanis Butterfly Festival on September 4-7th! It takes place in Southlake Town Square and it is going to be amazing!

Hundreds of butterflies, tons of great raffle prizes, and a huge release on Sunday at 5.

Be there. I will.

Shoulda been a chef...

My high school French teacher always thought I would be a TV chef.

Perhaps I should have listened to his advice and followed in those footsteps. Seems Rachael Ray earns approx. $18 million per year and lovely Paula Deen makes about $4.5 million.

All of that and a dash of EVOO and I think I'd be good to go!

Read the full article to see who else is a top paid chef.

Talkin' Texan Catch Up

Here are the "Talkin Texan with Meghan" segments from the past few weeks.

Talkin Texan with Meghan: July 27th

Talkin Texan with Meghan: August 3rd

Be sure to log on to to listen to the full episodes. August 3rd we interviewed Paul Sr. and Paul Jr. from Orange County Choppers. Man are those guys busy!

Plus, if you've got suggestions for other words I should be using, send them my way! I'm always in need of some more ideas! :)

Back at it again

Hey Y'all.

So I've been gone in Sturgis for the past 2 weeks. That meant no internet, (heck- no computer!), no phone, and basically no means of communication with anyone outside of the Rally except by snail mail! So obviously, that means no updates to the blog.

But we're back at it again. Overall our trip was a success, with just a few minor mishaps (big fines at the weigh station, flat tire on the trailer, exhaust burn on my leg, pulled over for illegal ape hangers, stuck on the bike in a lightning storm, surrounded by buffalo in the state park, engine light on the truck, etc). Traffic was a little down this year but we didn't notice too much. We met a lot of very interesting people and had a great time. I'll be posting some pictures in the next few days as I get unpacked and re-organized!
