GEAUXING TO ATLANTA!!!!
It is like I am Charlie from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I got TWO golden tickets to the SEC Championship game (LSU vs. Georgia) this weekend. There were over 24,000 requests from LSU season ticket holders, but only 16,000 tickets were available to LSU. There was a lottery... and I WON! I was lucky for the third time in a row actually! I went to the SEC Championship game AND the National Championship Game two years ago under the lottery system.
So... I'll be in Atlanta Thursday night for the big weekend game! I fly back home Sunday morning. Hmmm... will I finally get to meet Matthew? This will be the THIRD blogger buddy I have met. I have already met Donnell McDoughall's Doodles and Scott from Purple Twinkie. If I meet Jonah in Hawaii in January, that will be meeting FOUR BLOGGER BUDDIES in less than five months! Woohoo!!!!
E.Shrew is going to fly in Friday afternoon to attend the game with me. We talked a lot yesterday and today, and I think we have healed some wounds. Where will this go? Who knows? I do know that I understand him a lot better now after this second round of trouble. Beneath that tough and imposing hard shell... he is a sensitive soul on the inside. I feel closer to him now than I have ever felt. Yesterday, it felt so good to just hug him and tell him that no matter where our future paths take us... he'll always be my buddy.
