Prince Lorenzo seemed to be having a difficult time choosing his true love last night. In fact, something tells me he may have just flipped a coin off camera. The ring went to Jen, but Sadie may be the lucky one.
This years big tree lighting ceremony has been cancelled due to lack of co-operation between the major sponsor Landry's and the City of Galveston. We lived a few blocks down from this event for five years and always enjoyed the local school children performing Christmas music, Santa's arrival in a helicopter and ultimately a giant Christmas tree lit in all it's glory. Truly this is an event for locals and not tourist oriented. Maybe the city has decided providing family entertainment for it's hard working citizens is not as much of importance as hiring an outside source for tips on promoting the island. What a shame.
John's bandages come off today and the stitches come out. He will be evaluated to see if he will need therapy or not. He is so happy to get this done already. Please send healing thoughts that the surgery was successful.
Update: The stitches really hurt coming out and I tried not to look but couldn't help myself. The doc said he is healing nicely and gave him some exercises to before his next visit. He was glad he held back some of those good pills, because he was really hurting after this visit.
Honestly, I think adding the word "Island" to the name of the city would not be as effective as finding a way to deal with our homeless population who are constantly approaching tourists or the prostitutes and drug dealers hanging around every night on the east end of Seawall Blvd clearly giving our city a bad image.
I got a summons to appear for Jury Duty for the City Municipal Court next month. It says to mail the summons back with the survey filled out by November 30th and then farther down--it says to "bring the entire summons to court" So which is it? Mail ahead or bring it in?
Speaking of City Hall.
I used my debit card in the parking meter last month when I attended a closing on the Island. I knew there were meters and did I bring quarters? Of course not. It was 3 bucks minimum, so I swiped my card and went about my business. So now I see my bank statement this month is off by 3 dollars. They charged me twice.
Will I fight City Hall for 3 bucks. Hell, yeah. What are they going to do.....call me in for Jury Duty?
Isn't this cute? I tried it on at Express today and it looked horrible. It hits mid knee, a very unflattering length and the bust gaps. It was really ugly. In fact.... everything I tried on looked horrible on me today. I did pick up a red silk blouse to wear with my velvet pants from last years party, but I didn't try it on or most likely I would have left it hanging as well. and.. I don't even know if those pants still fit.
This show is horrible. It's loud and cheezy. The rules and questions are strange and complicated. I have no comment on the sleazy dancers. I hope it is dealt the "killer card" very soon Surely William Shatner has better things to do. Yuck.
ABC World News Tonight with Charles Gibson is broadcasting live from Eleanor Tinsely Park near Downtown Houston. I'm glad we are having nice weather for him to be standing outside in and I really hope he is wearing his mosquito repellent.
I prefer to do most of my holiday shopping online. If you like to shop on line too, check out Ker-ching for lots of online coupon codes and specials. I just completed my toy shopping at K-mart.com and got free shipping. I like free.
Speaking of holiday shopping, I popped into the mall to kill some time between clients Saturday and guess who is already sitting in his big chair and selling over priced 5x7's to worn out parents of screaming babies? Ugh, can we just have Thanksgiving first?
The show finally returns to NBC January 10th having wrapped up filming way back in June.
Remember the job in Hawaii that last year's winner Sean turned down? Well, those condo's do not start construction until next month, but the luxury suites have already sold out at an average of 1.5 million each. In fact they were only on market a for few hours before 700 million dollars in offers were on the table, wow.
