Burger report: Pappas Bar-B-Q

Sunday, June 29th, 2008

We were finally able to sample Pappas Bar-B-Q’s burgers today after an aborted attempt earlier this week. It seems that not only do certain locations not serve burgers, which we found out about two weeks ago when we tried to go to the location on S. Main near Reliant Stadium, but even those that do […]

Summer lovin’

Tuesday, June 24th, 2008

Unlike last summer when there were a whole bunch of replacement shows to watch, this summer, there’s not much on. Unfortunately, we don’t get Showtime, so we’re not catching The Tudors or Weeds or shows like that that do seem pretty good. Instead we’re limited to My Boys and CBS’ new show Swingtown. My Boys […]

Burger report: Chronicle picks

Monday, June 23rd, 2008

Huh, more proof that the Chronicle’s website is just weird: They have the burger slideshow back up now. It wasn’t there when I made my post a few days ago, and it wasn’t there at 8:00 this morning when I did my daily read of the Chronicle’s headlines. Maybe the fact that I’ve searched the […]

Burger report: Prince’s

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

About ten days ago, I saw a slideshow on the Houston Chronicle’s web site on the best burgers in Houston. They weren’t actually ranked or reviewed, nor were their locations even listed; it just showed photos of burgers and named where they were from. I found some of their choices immediately suspect, given that they […]

Go away, Coldplay

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

I’m so sick of Coldplay, and, in particular, I’m annoyed that their new song, “Viva la Vida,” keeps getting stuck in my head, because the iPod/iTunes ad that features it has been running incessantly during the NBA Finals. I’ve never liked Coldplay, mostly because I already hate U2. More than ever, especially in that ad, […]

If you like piña coladas and grading AP exams…

Sunday, June 8th, 2008

This is the first out of the past three summers that I won’t be attending the AP English Language exam in Daytona, which will be taking place this week. Nathan’s imminent (I hope) arrival makes it impossible for me to go, and even if I were there, I wouldn’t be able to partake of the […]

Oh, right … that

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

With somewhere between four and six weeks to go before Nathan arrives, I’m finding that I have at least one moment a day where I’m pulled up short and think to myself, “Oh, right … I’m pregnant.” It usually happens when I pass a mirror. You’d think after nine months of this, I’d be used […]
