These are my wishes, and this has no bearing on how much I actually appreciate, I’ll do an appreciation post some other time, right now I am being completely detached and thinking about things I WISH.  Not things I NEED or even WANT.  Just passing fancies.  Just grandiose desires. 

I wish there was a way that I could hear the crickets and the frogs and the rhythmic summertime song going on outside my window without opening my window.  See, it is really hot, even at night, and opening a window is just not a good idea.  This really bothers me.  I want to be able to open the window. 

I wish I had a front porch on my apartment. 

I wish I knew the boys that were sitting on their front stoop their apartment  in my apartment complex drinking a beer when I got back from running today.  One of them was holding a law book, but I didn’t know them.  If I knew they were 1Ls I would introduce myself, but I couldn’t read the spine of the book.  But I wanted someone to sit on the stoop and drink a beer with this afternoon.  I had a long day.  I even had my own beer. 

I wish I was better at getting up in the morning.  I have class at 8:30 tomorrow. 

I wish I was more comfortable with uncertainty. 

I wish my friends were more comfortable with uncertainty. 

I wish gas didn’t cost so much. 

I wish it wasn’t so difficult to forgive yourself. 

I wish I had a picture iPod and XM radio. 

I wish Georgia would win the national championship for my last season as a student. 

I wish someone would clean my room for me. 

I wish I was more grounded in reality. 

I wish I lived on a lake in the mountains.  Lake Rabun, Lake Burton, Grand Lake, I don’t really care, just on a lake in the mountains.  (mmmm, lake rabun and burton have the best tasting water…)

I wish I never got wacky tan lines. i.e. places you missed with the sunscreen.   I hate tan lines.  But being tan is fun.  V. bad for you, but fun. 

I wish every town in America had a Bojangles. 

I wish someone would dry my hair for me in the morning while I was still asleep. 

I wish I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a baller, I wish I had a rabbit in hat…..

Waffle House’s gorge fest

As part of its 50th anniversary celebration (and perhaps in an
attempt to guarantee that at least one patron won’t live to see the
scattered, covered and chunked chain’s 51st birthday), Waffle House is
sponsoring a world waffle-eating championship. Taking place Sept. 4 at
Stone Mountain Park, the event offers up to $5,000 for the person who
successfully snarfs the most WH signature menu items into their piehole
in a set period of time. Interested parties are asked to register at
http://www.ifoce.com, the official Web site of the International Federation of
Competitive Eating.

While the organization doesn’t list the current world record for
waffle-inhalation, Buzz did learn that it’s humanly possible to consume
6 pounds of baked beans in less than two minutes, seven sticks of
salted butter in five minutes, and 3¸ pounds of pancakes and bacon in
12 minutes. And for the record, it took us just five seconds to pop a
Pepcid AC while typing this

Jessica said she was going to enter.  I’m going to sponsor her and get t-shirts made.  We were kind of thinking about getting a team together so they could train before hand.  Anyone else interested?  Maybe y’all can be "Charlsie’s Chompers."  I don’t know, it is just a thought.
