a little and a lot

you think you know, but you have no idea

wow. can I just say that I love my friends? one whiney little post, and as a result, i had a fun-filled day of blog reading! (the squeaky wheel gets the grease?) truth be told, i was just feeling a little bored and lonely, and i am sorry for taking it out on you, the readers of my blog, whomever you might be, known or anonymous.

kelly schepp/hov raised a good point. how much blogging do you have to do to be a good blogger? (she says according to me, it is hourly! but i actually might end up complaining about that, because in reality, all jokes aside, who really has time to read blogs by the hour? i would get so far behind that i would stop reading and stop caring, and then i would feel guilty. so thanks for blogging in moderation, friends!) i think to answer kel’s question, it all goes back to the reason why i read blogs: it’s nice getting a little update on people’s thoughts and lives every now and then. so if you’re reading this, and you’re a busy person, and you felt like i was chastising you and you felt guilt and shame...GOOD. not really, just kidding! i just love reading about you...yes, YOU! so, “every now and then”, in my definition, equals frequent enough to keep people from wondering if something’s happened to you. once a week? twice? couple times a month? i will try working on that myself...

on another note, i would like to say that i ate corky’s bbq last night, and it was gooo-oood. their rolls are to die for, and the sweet tea was just right. and if you’re living somewhere besides memphis, and you think you know what i’m talking about...you don’t. it’s like saying you’ve eaten homemade icecream, when in reality, you’ve only eaten bluebell’s “homemade icecream.” trust me.

I'm happy to say that I live somewhere besides Memphis. :-)

Can I tell you that I hate Corky's? Well almost. I love the blackend chiken salad and you are right about the roles, but everything makes me want to chuck. Oh and FYI, there are Corky's all over the place. Little Rock being one of those places...

that's exactly the point i'm making, kel. atlanta has a corky's...but it is not THE corky's. there is only one of those. listen, it's taken me a long time to enjoy memphis for what it is. refer to matt elliott's post on atlanta if you want to make me homesick. but i'm here. so i like here. so there.
