When we meet him, let's just say he was out of it. And I would like to contribute that to having a flight out of La Gaudia at six in the morning and then missing two other flights in Houston. He was either tired or a little high. I hope the latter.
and drum roll please...with JL. There he finally is.
Bevo at the game

Real Quick Catch-up
Busy week with DAA and such. This past weekend was too much fun. Spent the entire weekend at JC and SC's Lakeway place. Friday: Buzzed by 7 p.m. (which was my goal) and then we headed over to SC's friends place. Beautiful home with views of the lake. More drinking. I call JL like a dumbass. He and I both agree I shouldn't call when I'm drunk. Saturday: Buzzed by 11 a.m. (right before kick-off) Somehow, cheering for UT with my legs crossed and a martini in one hand doesn't seem right, but there I was...calling everyone and asking, "do you love it?" included in those calls: ERG, Chino, Adam, Dad, JL...UT kicked some OU ass and I fucking love it!!!! Party went on for the remainder of the day and into the early morning. Best part - TC came up from San Antonio. He just moved there from Kansas City, where we first meet. I've know him and his boyfriend BR for years. Actually, BR is usually the anonymous person asking questions on my comments. I love them both so much and I'm so glad TC is in SA. He was a hit with everyone!
Sunday we went to the benefit for Project Transitions - Octo Tea Party, had a few more and saw so many people out there. Funniest part - taking a boat taxi there and having my hair do this 80's Flock of Seagull thing.
This Friday is DAA - Hopefully JL will attend it with me and then I'm attending the game with him on Saturday...should be fun

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MISSY!!!!! "you're my sister?"
Well it's my sister's birthday and at the moment I'm a little lost for words. I'm not sure where to begin. To use a line I've recently heard...she's like my right (well, in my case, left) hand, I wouldn't know what to do without it. I would be helpless and unable to function correctly. I'm the youngest in the family then her and then there is a pretty big age gap between my sister and my next oldest brother so needless to say we were inseparable growing up. We had so many adventures, shed many tears, and broke some hearts along the way.
507 Azalea is the place where I think we had the most fun. Our neighbors: Terry, The Alberez Family, Dunlaps, The Faulkner Frito Family, The family with the monkey. The Grey Family, The White Family, And of course Mrs. Wilson. I will never forget "Mrs. Wilson, I think my husband is dyeing on me" - one of those moments in life you will never forget and next to me during that - my sister. She would play cars and I would play barbies. We would play office and school. She actually drank real coffee once and about had a heart attack. We had a playroom with a window that lead to the den-real cool. When we played school "made up" students Manuel and Melissa Pena were good students while Manuel and Melissa Mendoza (or Martinez) were bad. When we cooked for the family she was Tutu and I would be the interviewer filming her and the show was called Tutu's Cooking. And she would do this great Mexican-Cuban extremely exaggerated accent. Then we would do the dishes in this order: glasses, bowls, plates, silverware, and then pots and pans.
We would sit around on my mother's bed and instead of napping, we would giggle so my mother would separate us by putting us on either side of her or make us pick out her gray hair with tweezers has punishment.
It hasn't been all wonderful though. When I joined the military, I found out later that she felt I had abandoned her. And in a huge way I did. I didn't call or write for a very long time. I look at family photos from that time and noticed I'm not in them and it makes me sick to my stomach. I still remember the day she came over to see me at my mom's after not seeing her for years. The look on her face was priceless. I had never missed someone so much in my life or loved someone so much. There is nothing I would not do for her. She is my foundation and she calls me on my shit. I could call her (and have) at 3 in the morning and she is there ALWAYS ready to listen and give advise. When ERG and I had a huge fallout I needed someone really bad and sure enough she drove (with Adam) 3 1/2 hours to come and pick me up to take me away for a few days. So here's to my Tither, my Sister, my Heart, I love you girl and I know you've had a hard life but because of your good heart, you will be rewarded. I love you and Happy Birthday. Without you, I swear, I'm nothing!!!!!
the pretenders - stand by you this is the ultimate song that absolutely solidifies my love for my sister
