REVENGE LIFE: Finally WE beat up on the hurricanes

Well, I'm back from the Chik-Fil-A Peach Bowl. In case you didn't know, we (LSU, the college I got my B.A. from) beat Miami 40-3. Ouch. I would call that poetic justice, considering hurricanes have cost my state approx 78 infinity million dollars this year.
Most amusing moments:

1. Several students hoisting that LSU Confederate flag I "love" so much. Then, the same students blasting gangsta rap from their truck and spending at least ten minutes talking about the positive aspects of the group "Dem Franchise Boys." Way to be diverse, guys!

2. After the game at about midnight: Me, dancing on the door ledge of the truck to the Bob Marley pouring out of the vehicle next to ours. A very scruffy man walking over and asking me a question. Me realizing that his question was in fact, "Hey, man, you want some of this good crunk?", and me noticing this scruffy man holding a very large, very dirty bag of weed. Me holding up my hand to say no, and he saying, "Oh, I'm sorry man" and running away.

3. As I walked next to our marching band as we jammed in victory, jaded Miami girl telling me, "Y'all still LOST to Georgia(in the SEC championship)," and me saying back, "Yes, but we just KILLED you." Her not saying anything back.

Anyway, I had a very good time, and Atlanta is a very nice city. I recommend the Sun Dial restaraunt, at the top of the Westin, the tallest hotel in the Western Hemisphere. The food ain't bad, and the view is spectacular.

Okay, now the moment you have been waiting for. That's right. In a few hours, I am going to post my "Favorite Albums of 2005" list. You know you can't wait...or at least, I can't wait. I've been thinking about it all year. I'll be back shortly. I want to watch the last sunset of the year.

Bob Marely: Africa Unite.

Does that count?

Sounds like you had a good trip. That's hilarious about the scruffy guy.

I just watched the most killer documentary, Burden of Dreams. It's about Werner Herzog, the german filmmaker, trying to make his movie Fitzaccarallo in the heart of the amazon jungle, about one man who wants to build a Opera House within, and makes 11,000 native indians drag a 320 ton steamship over a small mountain. They made the movie with no special effects.

I want my name to be Werner when I grow up.

That movie sounds crazy!
Hope you're feeling better, bud.
