Fire in Central Texas


Say Goodbye to Pete Tonight @ Carabar!

As many of you know, Pete is moving to Austin, Texas tomorrow afternoon to pursue his dream of becoming a BMX groupie. He also said something about managing an “authentic” Mexican restaurant with “fresh flavors” and “home-style recipes.”

All joking aside, Pete is one of the best friends I’ve had over the past 10 years. Even though he always smells like a burrito, he’s a great guy and we’re really sad to see him go. Tonight we are meeting at Carabar for his final goodbye party. If you weren’t able to make it to the three previous parties he threw for himself, tonight is your chance. Come say goodbye to Pete, have a few drinks, listen to some sad music, and stuff yourselves with $1 coney dogs.

We’ll miss you, Pete!

What Would You Eat For Your Last Meal?

If I was sentenced to death I would spend the next 5 years of the appeal process planning my final meal. I’m not sure I would have an appetite but I would order a bunch of food anyways. I might have to make a few changes but this is more or less what I would request:

  • Two kilograms of mince, some guinness, and a side order of laxatives. As the lethal injection takes me off to greener pastures, I’ll take the most gigantic death dump ever and the chambers will become unusable for three weeks.
  • French toast, filet mignon (medium rare), a chili dog from Skyline Chili, Sour Patch Kids, a kiwi-strawberry Snapple, a small twist cone from Dairy Queen, a pepperoni pizza from Adriatico’s, a pouch of grape Big League Chew, a sourdough sandwich from Schlotzsky’s, and some cupcake batter.

Here is a list of last meals from former death row inmates:

  • Larry Hayes – 9/10/2003 – Two bacon double cheeseburgers, French fries, onion rings, ketchup, cole slaw, two diet Cokes, one quart of milk, one pint of rocky road ice cream, one pint of fried okra, salad dressing, tomato, and onion
  • Hilton Crawford – 07/02/2003 – Twelve beef ribs, three enchiladas, chicken fried steak with cream gravy, crisp bacon sandwich, ketchup, a loaf of bread, cobbler, three Cokes, three root beer, French fries, and onion rings
  • Toronto Patterson – 08/28/2002 – Six pieces of crispy fried chicken, four jalapeno peppers, four buttered buttermilk biscuits, chef salad (with bacon bits, black olives, ham, and Italian dressing), six Sprites, and white cake with white icing
  • Richard Kutzner – 08/07/2002 – None requested
  • Stanley Baker Jr. – 05/30/2002 – Two 16 oz. ribeyes, one lb. turkey breast (sliced thin), twelve strips of bacon, two large hamburgers with mayo, onion, and lettuce, two large baked potatoes with butter, sour cream, cheese, and chives, four slices of cheese or one-half pound of grated cheddar cheese, chef salad with blue cheese dressing, two ears of corn on the cob, one pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream, and four vanilla Cokes or Mr. Pibb

A Day of Remembrance…

Early this morning my grandma passed away.  My sisters and I took the day off work and we spent the evening at my parent’s house. They have been taking care of my grandpa for the past 6 months and we wanted to make sure we were there for him during this difficult time. The mood was somber at first but my mom brought out boxes of pictures from early in my grandparent’s marriage and the night took a turn for the best. My grandpa told us stories and we spent most of the night laughing and enjoying each other’s company.

I think celebrating someone’s life is so much more rewarding than mourning their death. I found tons of pictures of my grandma, grandpa, my parents, and even a few pictures of myself. I scanned them so I would have copies and I decided to share a few.

This is a picture of my grandma, my sister Christina, and myself taken at Clinton.

This is a picture of my grandpa and Mickey Mantle. He was a newscaster in Houston and also spent some time playing minor league ball and even had a short gig with the Detroit Tigers. Sadly his ability to play sports at a professional level did not make the generation jump to me.

This is my mom and dad early on in their relationship. Check my dad out! Looks like I didn’t “get it from my momma.” Haha

Here is my grandpa doing some squats. Killer tanktop Popsie.

I laughed so damn hard when I saw this picture. Don’t front because I’m pretty sure the shirt is Polo.

Pete @ Austin City Limits

Pete was fortunate enough to be in Austin, Texas, for the Austin City Limits music festival. He sent me a few pictures from his iPhone and I figured I’d share them with everyone.
