Music's Biggest Night was last night, and I would officially be the most disliked person at our home office if I didn't write about it. Our home office and delivery team loves music. Sure, we all like different varieties, but all music lovers can appreciate music itself, just for being. As for me, I literally listen to it all. On Friday, I was in a Frank Ocean kind of mood. Today, my Pandora station is allowing me to enjoy the always fabulous George Winston. See, Monday is always a piano music kind of day. Friday is always a get ready for the weekend music kind of day. And the days in between usually are up to my mood. It may be oldies, spa music, rap - but you can rest assured that if you walk into this office, there will be music.
Fried pickles, seven layer dip, cold beer, coca cola, french fries, chicken wings, sliders, hotdogs, nachos, pulled pork sandwiches, chips and queso, barbecue, tater tots, stuffed jalapenos - what do all those tasty food items remind you of? Cardiax arrest? Hello, cynical! No, no. It isn't a heart attack of which I speak. It's the super bow!! (Oh, and maybe a heart attack if you eat leftovers all week...).
It's January 3, 2013. Hard to believe? Well, I can't speak for you, but I can speak on behalf of our team at Dallas Courier: we can't believe 2012 has come and gone. 2013 is here, and it's time to resolve, resolve, resolve.
How was your Thanksgiving holiday? Did you get enough turkey? I certainly hope so. I had plenty of turkey - too much, in fact. I had three Thanksgivings and a Christmas dinner last week. That is a lot of turkey, sweet potatoes, stuffing and rolls!
When I think of Thanksgiving, I think of great times with family, friends, food and football. That's right, it wouldn't be turkey day without football. After my Thanksgiving, my family all gathered in the game room to watch a whole lot of football. And if you were watching, you know that Saturday was chalk-full of some great games.
It's the day before Thanksgiving. And you know what that means? It's two days before Black Friday! That's right, the biggest shopping day of the year. Like, by far the biggest. Any of my loyal blog readers planning on hitting it up? For some people, Black Friday shopping is family tradition. The holiday weekend goes about like this: wake up early on Thursday to cook the feast, cook all morning, eat around 2 p.m., watch a little football, fall asleep on the couch thanks to the tryptophan found in turkey (an amino acid that makes us humans tired, tired, tired), wake up and eat a snack of turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and cream corn, plan for the Black Friday extravaganza, rest a little, and then.... SHOP, SHOP, SHOP!!!

Sandy. She is one violent lady. And she is wreaking havoc on the northeast - homes, businesses, streets, subways, beaches, hotels, restaurants, shops, airports, apartments, cars, buses, hospitals, presidential campaigns - you name it, she is trying to destroy it.
Of course, when I say "she," I actually mean the storm - the superstorm of the decade for the northeast. She is the largest Atlantic tropical system on record (per her diameter), and because of that statistic, New York and surrounding northeastern areas were bracing for the worst. My friends up in New York City were preparing all weekend for Sandy's wrath. They bought plenty of water, candles, flashlights, food and blankets. They were preparing for power outages and cold temperatures. Here are the facts about Miss Sandy:
