Texas Two Step

Yogurt Flavors: Chocolate Decadence, World Class Vanilla, Mocha, Roasted Almond, White Chocolate Raspberry, and Vanilla Malt.

Yogurt Club Day! All Yogurt Club members can get a small yogurt for only 95 cents. If you would like another size, we will take $1.50 off of any yogurt purchase. Just make sure to ask for the special.


Two things result from my daily work blogging exercise. First, my personal blog suffers chronic neglect. Second, there are times when I really just can’t think of anything to write. After nearly 600 entries, it can be hard to think of a subject everyday. Thankfully, this week I have not suffered any writer’s block. For most of the week, I have been one to two days ahead on my blog entries. (Yes, sometimes I cheat and write them early.)

A good portion of my neglect towards my personal blog comes as a direct result of pilfering ideas for it and using them on this blog. Such is the case with today’s entry. In an email, two of my friends asked me about a little thing called the Texas Two Step. While I’m sure that anyone who has lived in Texas most of their lives has found memories of performing this dance in gym class in their elementary years, this dance refers to the primary election process.

For those who choose to vote in the Democratic primary, there is a two step process involved in order to ensure that you maximize your voting power for the candidate of your choice. Put simply, you vote twice. You vote once in the primary. Then, you vote again in the caucus at your precinct which begins on the night of primary at 7:15 PM. If you would like to know the specifics, you can follow this link.

If you are voting in the Republican primary, then you only have to vote once.

Quiz Day: What Spice Are You?




You Are Ginger



Like ginger, you are a total shape shifter.

You can be sweet, spicy, mellow, or overpowering.

You are both soothing and unique. You are popular... yet you are often overlooked.


Astronomy Note: There is a total lunar eclipse tonight. The partial eclipse starts at 7:43 PM and the total eclipse will be from 9:01 PM to 9:51 PM.

You Are Cilantro

The bad news is that there are some people who can't stand you.
The good news is that most people love you more than anything else in the world.
You are distinct, unusual, fresh, and very controversial. And you wouldn't have it any other way.

You Are Basil

You are quite popular and loved by post people.
You have a mild temperament, but your style is definitely distinctive.
You are sweet, attractive, and you often smell good.

Methinks you just don't spend enough time around me to see my cilantro ways.
