Breakfast at Wimbledon

Took a sick day yesterday, with a monster sore throat. It's a fair amount better today, and I have to wonder if the breakfast of homemade waffles didn't help. ... Yeah, you're probably right. It was the champagne that soothed the sore throat, not the waffles.

Glad to see the only American left in Wimbledon just won the championship. Congrats, Venus Williams.

Probably laying low the rest of the weekend, even though there's a band called Lixx playing at Scruffy Murphy's tonight. It's an act with two girls on the roster, including the lead singer (Nikki Lixx), who dress in Catholic schoolgirl outfits. They play hard rock covers. On second thought, maybe I'll muster up enough strength to go to the show.

"Wooo-oooooooo, lady. Won't you take it easy?"

That's about when I was seeing them regularly in Pensacola. The best -- in an ironic sorta way -- was a place called Senor Frog's, kind of reminiscent of Al Who's Place here. had a big sign that said "It's Beer O'Clock."
