I'm home again for the week but will have to head back out again on Monday. I know it's only been 2 weeks but I'm already sick of eating out every meal and living in a hotel.

Now I've got to tell y'all the really dorky thing that I did Tuesday night. After work Tuesday I take a beautiful drive to Fayetteville to visit Tony's brother and his wife. Nothing out of the ordinary happened... nice trip... nice 2 hour visit. Nothing exciting happened on the drive back to Pulaski.... however.... I am really cutting my time close as I watch American Idol on Tuesday night, and get back to the hotel at exactly 6:56 pm... no time to get anything to eat. Ok, I'll call Legends, which is at the bottom of the hill, order take out, go at commercial and pick up back to the hotel no problem, plenty of time.... was I EVER wrong.

I looked in the phone book, got the number, called in my order, a chicken fried salad and a slice a caramel pie. I'm set and ready to go... woooooooo... so American Idol comes on, I watch Phil and then Jordin and then Lakisha.... commercial... wooooooooooo it's time to go pick up my food.... so I hop in my car, drive down the hill, turn the corner, park in a no parking zone, run in to get my food ... I tell the hostess I'm there to pick up my order, she looks and says "Ma'am, I don't have your order." My mouth drops and I'm thinking oh god, I'm going to miss American Idol... "but I called it in at 7:15 and the little girl I talked to told me it would be ready at 7:35".... "do you know who you talked to?" "No, I don't.... I called 380-1888 to place my order"...the little hostess looks at me like I've lost what little mind that I have and said "that's not our number".... "Whaaaaaaaaaa" She said "our number is 343-5441" so there is a stack of take out menus on a table, I grab one, look at it and I'll be damn... I've called Columbia which is 30 miles away.... oh sugar... so the sweet little hostess, laughing says, "we'll get you fixed up, it won't take but just a few minutes."

In the mean time, I'm trying to call everyone I know that is watching Idol to give me an update because I know that I''m going to miss Blake and didn't know who came after him but DID NOT want to miss Melinda. Ummmmm.... the only person I could get in touch with is my Randy Hoochie Turn..... I tell her what I've done... she laughes at me... well by this time I'm laughing at my stupid self too.

I get my order, back to the hotel in time to see Melinda and I'm happy.
Hope everyone has a good weekend.... I'm hoping that I won't do anymore dorky things, but knowing me I will.

Oh my god, that's funny!

I'm sad that you missed Blake, though. I recommend that you go to youtube and watch his performance!

When you get a chance, Dixie, I tagged you for a quick Wikipedia meme over on my page. Thought you might be able to find some good interesting historical facts of your own!
