Don't Vote.

Don't worry. I did vote. And I can't wait until this election is over. But I just really like this ad and I'm impressed with all of these Hollywood figures using their influence for a worthy cause instead of just making people sad that they can't live their fabulous life. So go ahead, don't vote.

Dual Purpose Humiliation

This is the perfect costume for my dog, Jack:

Then not only would I make his life hell on Halloween, we could do it all over again on St. Patrick's Day! I love it!

Cook-Off Champ

That's right. I am the Shoal Creek Chili Cook-Off Champion.

Oh sure, there might have only been 3 entries. Ok, you're right- one of those entries was disqualified. Whatever. So there were still 2 of us! And I still beat the other person! So that makes me the Champion! And I'll take that title any day :)

The coolest thing about the whole competition is that I made up the recipe myself, so I'm pretty proud. If you would like the recipe for my "Award Winning (ha) Southwestern Three Bean Chili" just ask. I'm happy to share.

Weird wake-up call

So I was walking my dog yesterday morning and over by one of the bushes I noticed a plastic container turned upside down. It looked like one of those tunnels you put in a hamster cage. I walked past it the first time, just glancing quickly.

"Wait, was there fur under there?" I thought. "No way. I must not be awake yet. There definitely wouldn't be an animal under that plastic thing. Who would leave their pet rodent outside overnight?! It's freezing out here!* "

So I ignored it and continued on the walk. However, when I returned to the location at the end of our route, I decided to take a closer look.

Yes. There was definitely a guinea pig under that container. And the container was placed in a way so that the entrance was blocked and the g.pig couldn't escape.

What in the world?! Who would put their guinea pig outside? Was this the last straw for someone annoyed at the noise? Was this a horrible prank between siblings? Or was someone seriously "walking" their little rodent?

I don't know the answer, but I do know that it was one of the strangest things I've seen at my apartment complex so far. And that says a lot.

*"freezing" is relative to your geographic location. In Texas, it was damn cold.

She's not YOUR BFF...

But she could be Paris Hilton's!

Miss Strokers Dallas 2008 (recently crowned at our Anniversary Party) is currently one of the contestants on MTV's new show Paris Hilton's New BFF.

Corrie Loftin is a popular model and bikini babe here in Dallas and she's a favorite of Strokers! She has placed in the Top 3 for every contest she's competed in at Strokers and has won twice.

Watch her on MTV and think of us.

Carve it up!

I love carving pumpkins.
2 years ago I carved the Strokers Logo into a pumpkin- no stencil and using only a steak knife. That took skill. (Of course I have no pictures to prove it)
Last year I carved an entire "haunted scene" on my pumpkin. Again, no stencils and using minimal tools.

This year, I've gotta get creative. Any ideas? I'll take 'em.

Your Sound Alternative

So I've gotta give props to the station that started me in the radio biz. (Not that I'm actually IN the radio business now, but I was. for a year. sort of. whatever.)

WGRE is a great student-run station at DePauw University. It is constantly rated one of the best college stations in the nation, despite being located at a small liberal arts college in Greencastle, Indiana.

You can show your support for the station, and for my past, by voting for them in the MTV Woodie Awards. They've made it to the top 5, so that ain't bad.

VOTE. It's not that hard.
