Licked but not in a good way. With hoarders and rum sauce.

Tampa Weather

It’s pretty here.  But hot as balls doesn’t begin to describe it.  Actually, I don’t even think it’s that it’s all that hot.  It’s that it’s so damn moist.

As we walked out of the hotel last night, one of my colleagues said, “Walking outside here just feels like being licked. And not in a good way."


Tampa Nightlife

Apparently, there are things to do at night. Me, I’ve been cuddling up with the TV. I caught the end of Forrest Gump.  I love that movie.   I watched the Bachelorette. I hadn't seen it in years. She's so cute!

And you guys, I watched Hoarders! For the first time! I flipped back and forth. I can’t handle the hoarders I really can’t. It's just so sad.

Bread Pudding

I don't know if bread pudding is a thing here, or it's just coincidence, but I'm pretty sure I've eaten my weight in bread pudding since arriving. With rum sauce. I mean the pudding. Not my arrival.

And tomorrow I go home. I can't wait.


  1. Licking with Hoarders? Not good.

    Licking with rum sauce? Pretty great.

    Also, I'm bringing bread pudding and crème anglaise the next time I'm in your neck of the woods.

  2. I love Forrest Gump too but I'm surprised you like the Bachelorette. I've seen a few minutes of this season and think she's really annoying and fake (well isn't everyone on that show sort of fake? how can 20 guys really fall in love immediately with the same woman?) and Nathan repeatedly comments on how un-good looking he thinks she is!

  3. That first sentence may be the sexiest thing you've written in a while. Yeah baby, twss.

    p.s. It's not any cooler here. Probably hotter.

  4. I like how organized this post is. Proof that organized can still be funny and cool. There's not way I could sit through an episode of Hoarders.

    So, "licked and not in a good way" made me think of a dog licking someone in the face. How's your dog search going?

    Travel safely home!

    I just bought the Forrest Gump score (not soundtrack)...it's instrumental. Love, love.

  5. Hah i've not watched the bachelorette in yearssss either. I think I watched the whole first season, and nothing substantial since then.. I'll catch the occasional episode, but its always fun!

  6. I feel a bit clammy just thinking about being licked and not in a good way. Ew.

  7. Totally thought that said "tramp weather" as in, halters & skimpy shorts.

  8. It's cold and wet here, I would rather be warm and wet...................ahh ok never mind that just doesnt sound right.

  9. Someday, probably YEARS from now, I will post pictures of my mom's house and property. And they will explain SO much about me.

  10. J., I could say the same thing. My mom recently bought her own storage building. Thank god she doesn't have any animals.

  11. "Licked, but not in a good way" Is a PERFECT description of Florida in the summer! I'm in Ft. Lauderdale, so even further south (but at least we sometimes get a seabreeze). People from up north (DC, NYC, etc) always complain that we walk too slow. I always say it's because if we walked as fast as they do, we'd die of heat stroke!

    The only thing that I know Tampa is famous for is the overabundance of strip clubs!

    I am SO jealous that you get a hotel room all by yourself. I so covet my free time. (of which I have very little)

    Have a safe trip home and kiss Jordan!


Tell me about it.
