It's 95 degrees in the shade, I've just gotten a fresh haircut and this Louisiana boy needs a snowball. They're a summertime staple in my hometown of New Orleans, but are they a thing here in Houston? If so, where can I find one? I looked no further than Buzzles Shaved Ice in Spring. I … Continue reading This Is Houston: Buzzles Shaved Ice
I love Chinese food, specifically Shrimp Fried Rice. It’s even been my election night tradition for the past fourteen years, usually with fried chicken wings and/or boneless spare ribs. Before moving to Houston, I was a regular at Gold Bowl, sort of a hole-in-the-wall in Baton Rouge on the corner of Airline Hwy. and Lobdell … Continue reading This Is Houston: Imperial Garden Chinese Cuisine
It all started in May of 2017. Actually, it’s more like June of 1995 or the fall of 2013. But let’s just stick with May of 2017… My parents and goddaughters took a trip to Houston to visit my step-uncle for his son’s birthday party. For my eldest goddaughter, it was sheer and utter dread; … Continue reading A Rainy Day in Houston
9-23-15 11.54am The dream opens, and I’m shooting the breeze with Ken, LSU coach Les Miles and Todd Graves, founder of Raising Cane’s. We were at the RiverCenter, resembling the Superdome, filming “in-studio” segments for MyScene TV. Naturally, we were waiting on our reporter, who’s often late. Todd stepped out for a bit, which led … Continue reading Dream Log: 9-23-15–My Scene. MINE!
6-18-14 7.24am I said I wasn’t going to write about this one, but a grown man can change his mind. In last night’s dream, Dr. Jackie Walters from Married to Medicine paid our house a visit. In real life, she’s a busy OB/GYN who wanted a child, and at one point was given a … Continue reading Dream Log: 6-18-14 — Baby Turtle
6-2-14 10.25am The title of this entry should make sense by the end. I’m in the middle of a sharp transition when it comes to my social life. In tandem, I’ve also had dreams that were even more disturbing than the ones prior. But at this stage of the game, my latest dream took … Continue reading Dream Log: 6-2-14 — Jaleficent
I’m in the process of writing a book called #SociallyAwkward, a two-part biography aimed at young men who have found themselves in social situations that they can’t seem to find their way out of. I am writing the second part right now, and since some of my future blogs may play into the events that … Continue reading Dream Log: 12-26-13 — Follow-Up
This is my first dream log in over a year. It’s the day after Christmas, and it’s also my “half-birthday,” as we called it in elementary school, meaning that I’m exactly six months from my twenty-fifth birthday. I got great presents this year, but the sleep afterwards was so-so. This was the third dream I’ve … Continue reading Dream Log: 12-26-13
The 'minions' comment is simply tongue in cheek. Carry on. You know what makes my ass hurt? Politics, viral videos, today's music, cephalopods (Google it) and the endless debate of Steffy vs. Hope on Bold and the Beautiful. I won't even lie--I didn't know Steffy was coming back today. But like clockwork, the conversation quickly … Continue reading “The Bold and the Beautiful” — Steffy’s Back (And Her Minions, Too)
Way back, after the second PoV of BB15 ended, I hopped in for another one of my long, hot steamy showers and I had a flashback. I’ve sort of made a name for myself in designing fan-made “Big Brother” theme songs and intros, and I thought back to this: This was a trial run for … Continue reading What if #BB15 and #TheChallenge Crossed Over?
