The rain was CRAZY yesterday! I had made plans with my aunt, that has been in Houston at The Medical Center and is only 4 years older than me, to go shopping on Monday. We were planning to go to Katy Mills. By the time my time to go to pick her up rolled around it had not stopped raining for three days. We left the house and got to the Medical Center ok, but as we waited to pick her up the winds started picking up and with was raining some baseball size drops. On the way out to the freeway the water was so high that we had to drive in the median. So, our plans had to change, no more Katy Mills. It took us 1.5 hours to get from Hermann Hospital to Meyerland Plaza, usually a 15 minute trip, it was crazy. There were so many people stuck and so many cars abandoned. The bayou near Meyerland had completely overflowed and the feeder roads were closed. It was crazy, but we do live in Houston.

In The News...What is the deal with Michael Jackson now? I am beginning to question some of these parents. I mean the guy is pretty freaky anyway so are these parents like "You wanna go to MJ's house to hang out?, yeah, sure, I don't see the harm in that. Just because he has a ranch called Neverland filled with different animals, has a pet monkey, used to be black, has been seen suspending his own children (so he says) out of a balcony, and has been sued before for child abuse, I don't see any problems, you go ahead". What parent in their right mind lets their child go over there and hang out? I mean the parents are to blame for their stupidity, maybe they should be the ones being sued. Oh, yeah, and the parents of this kid don't want any money, they want the TRUTH to be known. How about working on something we did not know??

Yes, yes, I know, I said I was going to write a lot sooner about the concert, but to tell you guys the truth it took me several days to recuperate. Ok, let me start at the beginning...It was a hot and muggy night in Houston, well, it was!, anyway, back to my story, we arrived late, my sister wanted to have dinner before the concert, I wanted to be there by seven, anyway, by the time we got to Downtown, battled the traffic, found a place to park, and waited in line to get in, my band, Rabanes, was already up on stage, OH MY, I must go!!! I ran to the front and elbow my way to a very decent place on the floor right in front of the stage. Wow, Rabanes were awesome and I was so close I could see the sweat dripping from their faces (I guess I still think that is cool). After their set we went upstairs to seat and that is when it turned ugly. After so much jumping up and down and dancing I had worked up a thirst, so I requested a $9.50 Miller Lite. Ok, everybody say with me $9.50!! Anyway, Maldita Vecindad and Motolov were great. After the concert we, well, I , was looking for the band and I was told they would be at the Hard Rock, but by the time we got there they were already gone, boo, hoo. But I took the opportunity to enjoy a couple of more cocktails and make new friends (I even got a free hat!). Yeap, it was a FUN night.

Yes, tonight is the Rabanes concert, I am so super excited. It should be a lot of fun. I will keep you all posted on how it went.

Enlightenings...Well, I have come up with a new way to live my life and to tell you all the truth it is actually working for me. I have decided that I will let everyone live their life as they see fit...yes, I know, you are saying, isn't that what we are all supposed to be doing? Well, yes, but there are times when you want to pass your pearls of wisdom to other people and it does not always turn out the way you expect it - you know, big hugs, thank you, thank you, hugging again and of course something mentioned about saving their life - nope, not always like that. Anyway, to make a long story short, I will no longer offer my 2 cents. I will wait until "what do you think?" before giving my opinion and even then I will try to limit my answer. Yeap, I will be completely hands off, huh, I will see how this goes.

Ok, see you guys tomorrow after the concert.

I am so super excited. I just booked my trip to Boston. Yippie for me! It should be super fun, but I think it will be "wicked" cold. Last year when I went for my company meeting, also the first week in December, it was snowing. Yuck! I hate cold weather.

I have been jet-lagging all day. It seems that I am home a lot now days, but can not get anything done. It has been one of those days that I wish that I could just sit down and watch tv all day, but there is so much to do. Still nothing gets done and I don't get to watch any tv.

Ponderables...I wonder why some priests label themselves as gay if they are not allowed to have sex? I wonder about that. Why do they go out of their way to say they are gay if they are supposed to be celibate? It seems kinda a waste of energy to me.

Another awesome Halloween gone. This year we celebrated halloween at the house for the first time. It was great, we got over 200 kids. Wow, I had never seen so many people on the street. It was a lot of fun. Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. Ahhhhhhhh, I am already making plans for next year.
