A broken soldier
Torn apart in times of war
Fighting her way back

More Haikus

Writing poetry
Helps to keep the blues away
On winter mornings

Been working so hard
To leave the past behind me
Wish someone would help

Mall Haiku

Naked mannequins
Arms, legs no longer attached
Favorite store gone

Long List

I've got a whole bunch of "resolutions" for this new year.  I put that in quotes because they're more like goals for the year rather than resolutions, which perhaps gives me a better chance of achieving them (since I read that only 8% of people actually keep their New Year's resolutions). I would like it to be a stellar year, and I intend on doing everything within my power to make that happen.  Hope yours works out just as well!!

New Kick

So we decided to spend the night in New Orleans and eat at Emeril's. He's got that new show "On the Menu," and when we were deciding what to eat, I saw the dish that had won the show.  Naturally, I had to order it - it was out-of-this-world fantastic crab lasagna.

Two days later, we were in Florida and stopped at Denny's for breakfast. Lo and behold, on their menu was their "On the Menu" winner - apple stuffed french toast, which I promptly ordered. It, too, was wonderful.

So when we got back home, I looked up the other restaurants that have been featured, and since there are so few (10 total), I have decided to try them all.  Hit the third one tonight - Korean Barbecue Pizza at California Pizza Kitchen. Pretty good stuff (although I did think the MOUND of cabbage on top was a little over done).

There are five more I can hit in town here, and one more I'll go to when I'm in Austin in February. Unfortunately, I won't be able to get to that last one - it's Cabo Wabo Cantina, and the only ones are in California and Nevada.  But that's cool - 9 out of 10 ain't bad.  I just love doing this kind of thing!!
