Louisiana French...

First of all, Miss Louisiana last week was a BLAST! I can’t even say how much fun it was! Wow! Wayne and the entire crew ROCKS! *Photos Coming Soon*


Congrats to Molly! Girl, I remember judging you when you were but a baby!  ARG!! Man, I feel old. And NO Wayne its 1995 NOT 1985!! I was but a babe then!!


On a sadder note, Nadal lost in the 2nd round today.  I didn’t get to see all of the match on the “telly” in the states, but I kept close tabs online:

I did however get to see Timmy Henman practically give his countrymen (and me toward the end of the match) a royal heart attack!  Timmy came back from 2 match points! Fitness, Tim…it’s all about fitness ole boy!! BUT, move over now…here comes Murray!!!


Next match for me to glue? Roddick/Bracciali. I’m anxious to see how hard Bracciali will fight! It will either be smashing or quite blah!

Gazebo Garble

Okay this was a crazy day! I finally had one day where I really didn’t have much to do. So, I wanted to spend it outside helping my parents in the yard and garden. Then I got a wild idea about getting a gazebo! You know the one’s that you put up and it has the mosquito net…those kind. So, I hoped in the car lookin’ pretty gruff and went to Sears. I found this really cool one that was on sale. It was 20 X 12. Perfect! While I was there…Murphy’s Law…I ran into EVRYONE I ever knew looking like a ragamuffin! (At least that’s what mom said.) Oh well! I took it home and began the assembly process. 2B goes with 2 and 3B goes with 3…blah, blah, blah. It was really a neat idea, the parts were corded together for “easy assembly.” I was going right through this without a hitch! It was almost complete when….the inevitable happened. One of the parts…that were corded together mind you… were: 2B, 2B, 2, 2B. You see the problem was that the progression was SUPPOSED to be 2B, 2B, 2B, 2. So a “biggie” part was next to another “biggie” part and …well they just wouldn’t fit together. So I thought, I could cut the cord and make it work! “WAIT!” my dad said, “check the rest of them.” And sure enough another piece was wrong! Only in THIS case it was 2B, 2, 2B, 2. See the problem? Not only were the “biggie” and smallie” parts miss matched, I was missing a 2B and had an extra 2!! ARG!!  I couldn’t even cut this one to make it work! By now, it was getting afternoon time and I had to be somewhere else! So I ended up going to that event looking a little…well…like I looked before. Anywho, I was, to say the least, irritated! But, on my afternoon excursion, I met up with a few of my wonderfully talented students for a few hours and felt much better.  Afterwards I had the daunting task of taking apart everything and sticking the pieces back into the TINY box it all came in and take it back to Sears! So, I go back to Sears. They were great! No problem! I told them the issue, they apologized and I got my money back. (I just didn’t want to fool with it anymore…the thrill was GONE!) So, as I was getting everything finalized, one of the many employees who were there (I think it was a trainee day or something) said, so I heard that you are a former Miss Louisiana.  (Remember how I looked! Yuk!) I so thought about lying! But I said, “Yep, don’t look like it right now, though!” And he laughed! He could have disagreed with me…but I would have laughed too! He proceeded to tell me that a guy from the morning told everyone in the store. And I know who it is!! I’m not going to mention any names…ALEX RAIN!!...but I could have slapped you!! Oh well!! I should call you up on your radio show and give you a bru-ha blessing out!! I guess that’ll teach me not to look like Medusa when I go out in public…or maybe not! .

The French

Okay, most of my friends know that I'm a tennis fan! Yeah, yeah, I fell for Agassi in 6th grade!  (He's still HOT!!) All my friends were going to crazy concerts and I was beggin' my parents to let me go to a tennis match! Well, I was a bit upset when my main tennis squeeze didn't advance past the ....we just won't talk about it, However, I did find another most awesome player to cheer for! Rafael Nadal! HELLO!! He's AMAZING! And from a girl's point of view to be such an awesome athlete as well as...well a perfect Boy Scout! Well, it just makes a girl giddy!!  So, here's to tennis and the French Open and the new "hottie" of tennis: RAFA!!!
