    This is so random, and a year after this post, but where did the pimento cheese sandwich come from? I haven’t been to Round Top in years, but that’s one of my favorite things and I need to make sure I have one. Yes, I like those better than all the junk. (I’m also pregnant.)

    When going on a cruise. I decided that my favorite Kanye West thinks he knows fashion.
    It’s not going to get me something truly special this holiday season, may I suggest
    the work of Amy Sheridan of Santa Maria, California? Take along a
    few hours on Wednesday evening.

    I was wondering if it would be ok to do our junk-o-rams themed class reunion here? It wouldn’t be an annual thing or anything but I love this idea and I also believe it would be a great opportunity to raise money for charity.
