Personal

I sat upon the ledge of tomorrow.

And watched yesterday run away.

No wave for parting sorrow.

Just another today.

I look down between my feet.

Deep down inside of me.

Past the sight of you and me.

And all my other fallen dreams.

Cheese Grits

Cheese Grits Recipe

For the amount I cooked for Christmas (large casserole) here’s what I used:

2 cups quick cooking grits (NOT “instant”)

4 eggs, beaten

1 1/2 cups milk

1 1/2 sticks butter

16 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Cook grits; add cheese and butter. cool and stir. Add eggs and milk and stir. pour into large casserole and bake 1 hour, uncovered, at 375. Can bake ahead and warm up in microwave, but better “fresh.”

Ok that’s odd

Ok this is kind of creepy.

For some reason the guy moved my trash can all the way up to my porch.

Normally one would think “wow! What a nice person!”

I’m a realist. There are no nice people. So I went outside and looked…

What do we notice detectives? No one else had such a kind deed done! My porch happens to be pretty secluded.

Am I being an asshole for assuming someone might of been looking for a free package?

I feel vulnerable.

Shoes

I blame my wife for my new obsession with shoes. I haven’t gone too crazy, but this new shoe shine box my wife got me for Christmas is amazing!

I still use the old box too… looks kind of pathetic now…
