Weekend Review

In case you are interested:


  • I thought I would treat sisterGeeding to a nice dinner and decided to take her to Fogo de Chao.  When I called for reservations, they asked for a last name.  I told them “Geeding, G as in golf, E as in echo, E as in echo, D as in Delta, ING.  Just like feeding except with a G.”  When I get there my reservation was under ‘Beeding.’  When it comes to my last name, I will never win.  Greeding, Geddings, Geddie . . . Que Será Será

    Not only did I glutten there, but the next day MomGeeding wanted to go to Babe’s Chicken to eat on Saturday.  I’m stuffed!
  • I woke up a tad bit early on Saturday and thought I would go to the mall and buy some new clothes since this is the tax free weekend here in Texas.  I never really was much for taking advantage of this event and saving 8%, but I guess every little bit will help; not to mention I had a Dillards gift certificate.  I walked around and found nothing I liked, and then decided to go to Wal-Mart to pic up something for MomGeeding.  Turns out I bought two shirts there. 

    This event would have never happened ten years ago as shopping for clothes at Wal-Mart was a no-no.  Either Wal-Mart has gotten better with the style of clothes, or I’m just getting older and I no longer have ‘hip’ taste.  Oh, then I also bought three shirts at Target.  Either way, this is the first sign this week that I’m old.

  • I had to teach Sunday school, I feel I’m not gifted in this area, and have a feeling it didn’t go very well.  Others may have felt it went fine, but I think I could have done better.
  • Yet another sign of aging part 2:
    Watching the Pro Football Hall of Fame inductions is starting to mean a little more to this football fan.  Troy Aikman is probably the first person I remember watching the NFL Draft for, I watched his entire career, and now I’m seeing him inducted.
  • Yet another sign of aging part 3:
    I’m told those entering college this year, those that are 18 years old, were born in 1988.
  • Rayfield Wright’s speech inspired me, and I totally loved how he delivered it.  It sounded more like a sermon, and I was impressed with the person (Stan Lomax) that was introducing him as well.  Several things stood out: 

    – Trusting and respecting his elders, as well as Tom Landry.
    - His humblness.
    – How he thanked the Dallas Morning News writer that spearheaded his nomination.
    The way he pointed out Bob Hayes and Harvey Martin should be inducted. (Let’s not forget about Drew Pearson)
    – “God knows I’m not a saint, but I am a Dallas Cowboy!”

  • I’m not complaining, but there was a lot of U2 being played regarding the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  The NFL Network was playing ‘Beautiful Day’ during a lot of their coverage.  When NBC started their first NFL broadcast in years U2 was in the background.  Speaking of which, I really liked how the arranged for the Hall of Famers to be introduced at the beginning, midfield, with both teams lined up.  Oh, and after the introductions, U2’s ‘All Becasue of You’ was being played at the stadium. 

    And one more thought about NBC, I think they are going to do a great job with their NFL presentation.

    Fogo de Chao, that had to set you back a pretty penny. The best way to eat FogodeChao is to eat there when in Sao Paulo, much more economical when paying with Real’s.

    And I have the exact same OLD feeling about watching the HOF speeches. I was 15 years old, and worked at the Dallas Cowboy training camp when Troy was in his 2nd year. He was HATED by the fans back then. Are we really this old???

    And to answer your question, Wal-Mart does have decent nice, last 3 months kind of clothes, but you’ve really hit the OLD people I-don’t-care-stage when you pick up shirts on sale at Albertsons’ or Dollar General.. 🙂

    My hubby gets the same treatment with his name. His first name is common, but spelled weird so people mispronounce it all the time!

    With the whole name thing, yeah I can relate, people think I ment to say Branson, or Brandon, I have to slow down and say I am 20 some odd years old, I think my parents by now taught me how to spell and pronounce my name. Ugh I hate having to explain my name, haven’t anybody heard of Charles Bronson. COME ON people.
    Any how, yes we are getting up there, I had a friend tell me last month that she bought her son a Micheal Jordan Jersey. Neither he or his friends at school knew who that was,(by the way he is 13). She explained that he was a great basketball player who played for the bulls and North Carolina, but he was still confussed, so she went on to say he was the man on Space Jam, and only then did he know who he was.
