...The City has a Smart Car that patrols around the Five Points area and it is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen. This is it parked on the sidewalk...yes, PARKED ON THE SIDEWALK. Wouldn't this just make you feel so safe? I guess it could be worse. The north side of the city over by the convention center has police officers on Segways.
...I am convinced that The Original Pancake House puts crack in their food. Every time I eat breakfast there, I think about it for days afterward. This French toast was so amazing, I'm pretty sure it's illegal in at least 17 states.
...If you're in the Birmingham area, California Pizza Kitchen at The Summit and The Galleria will be donating 100% of sales between now and Thursday to the Alabama Tornado Relief Fund. You should go.
...I finally broke down and went to the orthopedist about my ankle. Turns out I've been walking around on a torn tendon for the past three months. I'm in a boot for 6 weeks and then I'll go back to see if I'm going to need surgery. How does one tear a tendon and have no recollection of it? I'm still trying to figure it out.
...I'm addicted to Burt's Bees Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil. It's delightful for the lips *and* the nose.
