Why Kelly Loves Texas

In the midst of a rousing group sing-along to "God blessed Texas" midway through the Brad Paisley concert, Kelly turned to me and said:

This is why I love Texas - it's just the best state.
And full of a bunch of drunk proud people.

What a Weekend!

There's nothing like starting a weekend off with a Friday night concert (Brad Paisley!):

Followed by a grueling early-morning 10 mile run, in near 100% humidity with hills.

Followed by a company picnic, in near 100% humidity:

Followed by church.

Then lots and lots of lazing about... (the furbabies helped).

Delicious Dinner: Tofu Quinoa Asian Stir Fry

Short on time ... long on hunger ... in need of protein. My solution was ...

Tofu Quinoa Asian Stir-Fry
Original recipe here
My revised below

  • 8 oz extra-firm tofu
  • 2 T spicy wok oil, divided
  • 1 pkg frozen stir-fry vegetables
  • 1/4 t kosher salt
  • 2 c cooked quinoa
  • 2 T Szechuan spicy stir-fry sauce

Arrange tofu on several layers of heavy-duty paper towels. Cover with additional paper towels; let stand 15 minutes. Cut into 1/2-inch-thick cubes. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add tofu; sauté 4 minutes or until browned. Place tofu in a bowl. Return pan to medium-high heat. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan. Add vegetables and quinoa; stir-fry 4 minutes or just until tender. Add 2 tablespoons Szechuan sauce and salt; cook 30 seconds. Add tofu. Toss well to combine.

Keep This In Mind

I'm in the middle of a very big project at work. A very big project that will set the stage for an even bigger project, pushing the boundaries of how we've done our business of marketing for decades.

In the midst of these types of projects, it's helpful to remember:

Excuse Me...

I returned to work from the holiday weekend and noticed that something was amiss on my desk:

My tape dispenser is missing.

My colleague has a habit of asking to borrow my tape dispenser, so I had a suspicion that he might know where the dispenser was hiding.

I was half right. He said he borrowed it, but forgot where he left it.

Now I'm having Milton from Office Space moment, obsessing about my tape dispenser.

This is Why I Don't Watch Scary Movies

I can get a the action.



Reminds me of the last time I went to a haunted house, got scared and grabbed my friend's hand and ran all the way through and out of the maze - only to find that I'd grabbed the hand of one of the performers and drug him all the way outside.

This is definitely why I don't watch scary movies.
