I’m keeping my promise and we are going to keep up with this Tuesday Ten business.
Uno: If you live in Houston, come hang out with me at Tacolandia.
I mean, beer + tacos + me…winning combo. 😉
Dos: I had breakfast with my cousin a few Sunday’s ago. I have a million + one first cousins on my Italian side, but this dude is basically my brother. I’m pretty protective over him b/c he technically is two years younger than me. Long story short: his psycho ex-gf if trying to screw him out of a joint company social media acct. that they share. Plus, she is like 40-something. Not cool. Real mature of her. Are you in 1st grade? I wouldn’t give her that much credit.
Tres: I had a mini heart attack as my fave guitarist of all time has released an album after what seems like a century hiatus and I’m going to see him in concert in November. Here’s some background history: Doyle Brahmall II. His dad was also a famous guitarist and he grew up with Stevie Ray Vaughn in Austin. When Vaughn passed, Brahmall II formed a band called Arc Angels with Vaughn’s Double Trouble duo Tommy Shannon + Chris Layton and another badass guitarist, Charlie Sexton. The group split b/c of drug issues/typical rockstar stuff in the late 90’s. Anyway, my dad raised me on this Tx blues/rock music and I’ve been following Doyle ever since. Should be a rocking good time. See what I did there?
Quattro: Football season (uhhhh pre-season) has begun and I’m already obsessed. It’s definitely the Texas girl in me. I grew up on the Houston Oilers + Dallas Cowboys. I don’t associate with the Texans except for JJ Watt b/c do I really have to explain that one? So, Dallas has a special place in my heart. This crazed, yelling, cursing woman comes out in me and I start yelling at the refs on the t.v. I will invite you over for chili and cornbread and we can watch a game when it’s not sweltering hot outside.
Cinco: Speaking of hot, it’s like a freaking sauna here in Houston. Plus, it’s been raining for what seems like a decade. I have barely seen the outside. It’s a nightmare.
Seis: I keep running into ppl I went to high school with. F.Y.I. this year I will have been out of high school ten years. It’s a strange feeling. It’s kind of like, “oh, hi…I remember when you used to talk shit about me and didn’t even know me, but look at me now” feeling mixed with a “it’s so good to see you” or “it’s so good to see that you are eating your words” feeling. 😉
Siete: I’ve been having headaches associated with drinking too much coffee. But I don’t necessarily want to pop a ton of migraine meds so I have been using lavender oils. Yes, my mom taught me this. Yes, she’s a genius. Yes, this is my hippie side of life. No drugs for me. Unless I’m about to have a child. Then, give me all the meds in the world.
Ocho: I need a freaking vacation, but staycation. Austin is my home away from home, so I am feeling a weekend trip coming up soon. Coupe and I need some down time. Pool + trail hikes + massage + room service is the best medicine.
Nueve: I miss my baby seester. She is a colorodoian (?) or boulderian now and our texts now consist of her asking me for the netflix password.
Diez: I have been drinking decaf americano’s lately so as to avoid too much caffeine intake and it’s a sad, sad, shame.
