Yesterday, I went to Red, Hot & Blue for lunch.

I grabbed a kids' menu and started coloring, just for fun. But, I was dismayed at the difficulty level. The connect-the-dots picture had 106 dots! And, I very nearly left three of the word scramble words unscrambled. It was disconcerting, and very nearly ruined my barbecue-- nearly.

Luckily, I redeemed myself when my team won Trivia Night at the bar last night, and a $50 gift certificate along with it. Yee haw!

Now, I'm watching a "Dayside" segment on "How to Pray Your Way to Losing Weight." For real. I think I'm hurtling back toward trouble-finishing-the-word-scramble territory. Resist, resist!
