And he said, let there be chili!
After reading about the "sock monkeys that saved the world" over at Christine's blog yesterday, we both suddenly had this odd craving for chili and cheese. So Todd had me drug up earlier today and we hopped in the Explorer and drove to Ocala. You see, we both grew up in Oklahoma where Sonic Drive-Ins are headquartered. We crave their food all the time -- but the closest Sonic to us here in Tampa Bay is about 65 miles away now. I guess we should at least be thankful that we don't have to drive the 7+ hours to Pensacola like we used to do when we first moved to Florida.

We just got in about 30 minutes ago and I have a mountain of e-mail to wade through! One was regarding a new design I did over the weekend. (The site and blog will be unveiled soon when MT 2.0 comes out.) I still feel like a high school kid with a college acceptance letter, or an envelope containing ACT scores, each time that first feedback note comes in. So I put my fingers over my eyes and made Todd read it for me first. Then I could tell by his face that "I'd done good". Phew! I've been doing this for almost five years now and it just never gets any easier. Yes, I am a dork like that. But websites -- and especially blogs -- are so personal. And this is one I'm happily pouring my heart and soul into! Is the antici.....pation killing you yet? Good!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend thus far! I think I'm still in denial that I won't be able to flip on the TV and find football there tomorrow. Sigh.

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

Okay, since you have Gruden, can I say I had Sonic for dinner tonight? LOL! ;) Great blog, nice picture of Gwen. Visit me :)

Sonic is less than a mile from me. *sheepish grin*

I feel so baaaaaad that there is a Sonic just 2 lights away from my office and I *never* eat there. I'm going to hell for sure, aren't I?

Jealousy. That's all I feel... We live in Seattle and they haven't even *heard* of Sonic or Braums.

I never thought I was lucky to have Sonics and Braums everywhere I go. Guess Oklahoma has SOME advantages, but a Sonic burger does NOT make up for the cold and snow we are having now.

But, at lunch, a large order of cheese tots might make me feel better.
