Canceled but Classic

This week's prompts:

Writing Prompts:1.) A list of 10 old TV shows you’d like to make a comeback.
2.) A post your mom would write if your mom wrote posts.
3.) Do you love it or hate it? An open letter to your child’s latest obsession.
4.) We just celebrated America’s Independence! Write a poem about what freedom means to you.
5.) It’s hot, the kids are home and crazy, our pets are panting, the days are long…share your number one Summer Survival Tip. This week's blog is sponsored in part by prompt #1 I must have horrible tastes in television shows, because most of the shows I love, end up cancelled. Seriously, if I get  whole season, I am a happy camper. Of course there are some obvious ones like Firefly and Arrested Development that immediately come to mind, but I have some other ones too that are worth mentioning.

Sometimes You Just Aren't Feeling It

Seriously, give me a bucket of Frank's french fries (from the top of the hill), an elephant ear (from the vendor about 6 spots to the right when you get to the bottom of the hill) and a pitcher of beer. I'm set until we go to Jo Jos (or I have to walk home to use the little girls room). Even if the band sucks, the people watching is AMAZING. I seriously saw the whitest and drunkest Cupid Shuffle ever there last year...and I work for P3 so that is saying something.

Now, it just isn't the same. I just wasn'…

Day 8: A place you've traveled to
USVI: St John
My sister and I went to St Thomas last fall, and while we were there we took a morning trip to St John for shopping and mimosas...and to be chased by wild chickens.

Okay...maybe we weren't chased by wild chickens. They are all over the island though. It was a nice place to spend our morning!
