BOM BOM BOM BUM BOM BOM......BOM BOM BOM BOM....BOM BOM BOM BUM BOM BOM...BOM...BOM BOM BOM BOM BOM BOM BOM BOM....Sorry...all that was me trying to spell out the beginning of the Alabama fight song. In just a few short hours, The University of Alabama will be kicking off their very first game of the season. In 1995(I think), my Dad was offered a job in Tuscaloosa, AL and had it been in any other city, we might still be living in Chattanooga. My Dad has loved Alabama football since Kenny Stabler was huge in the 70s and he has bred it into my brother and I as well. We will be watching the game at the house of another family we are friends with (the game is out of town) and it is all that has been on the minds of people around here for at least a few weeks. This morning, I went to weigh in and I was down 1.8 Pounds which brings my total to 31 Pounds! I was excited...maybe I will make my goal within 2 years. I know that sounds like a long time but hey...what else do I have to do for the next 2 years? I also went to make sure I didn't have swine clap...and naturally...I didn't. Just my typical, stomach, reflux and allergy issues...but better safe than sorry I guess? I generally don't believe that...I hate the doctor but still managed to freak myself out. I then went to get a pedicure. I have a deep-seated hatred for feet but mine are kind of jacked up lately so I went to get one. It wasn't bad although the toothless guy massaging my calf thought it would be funny to tickle my feet after he saw it bothered me. I got a bright red color called "Vodka & Caviar." Yah...that was really the name of the polish. The first choice was something like "Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ" but the man didn't like it. Whatever, my toes look better.
So, the house I am going to tonight will be filled with grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, chips, beer, soda, junk, junk and more junk. Against my real desires, I am bringing my own hot dogs (Hebrew National 96% Fat Free) and bread and beer. I REALLY don't want to be good but I decided I still wanted tomorrow as my cheat day so I am just going to suck it up and chomp on my Kosher weenies and be happy about it. Everything you got out of that last sentence was intended. I will hopefully be too focused on the game to worry about food (that probably won't happen) and I will make through without a hitch. I am still thinking about how awesome it will be to be off on Monday but looked at my parents with longing eyes as if begging them NOT to make ribs. We'll see what they do. Roll Tide! Hopefully, I will be in a good mood tomorrow after Alabama rolls over the Hokie's.
