Joe's Crab Shack


Joe's Crab Shack
Originally uploaded by Rachel Pennington.

This is one of the walls at Joe's Crab Shack ("Peace, Love, & Crabs!") in Fredericksburg, Va. The place was decorated with so many things that I couldn't even concentrate on my eating because I was too interested in all the junk. The food WAS good though. I don't eat seafood so I had a steak and it was deelish. It was so tender that it practically melted in my mouth.

I'm miserable without my camera. This will be the longest 10 business days in the history of the world. :(

I just want to add that I'm so sick of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes that I could puke. I used to like Tom but ugh--SHUT UP already!

Oh, and here's another fun story I want to share with y'all, and I'm sure you'll be glad that I did, too! *grin*

When we were in Fredericksburg we were waiting for a supply company to call hubby so that he could go pick up some parts. In the meantime we walked in the historical area of the city.

Well, I had to go to the bathroom pretty bad so we found a bathroom and I get in the stall and do the "bathroom dance" while I'm putting one of those sterile toilet seat covers down on seat. You remember that I said it was 117 degrees there, right? So anyway, I sit down and take care of business and guess what? It's so hot and I'm so sweaty that THE TOILET SEAT COVER STICKS TO MY RUMP AND THIGHS. So here I am, in a stall that's barely big enough for my toe to fit in, peeling toilet seat cover off my butt. I have my camera bag, my pocketbook, and about 1,000 brochures in one hand, because who wants to set that stuff in a bathroom floor, right? So I'm twisted like a pretzel peeling this stuff off of me when I lose my balance and hit the door, which flies open! I grabbed the door (I hope that you're picturing this mentally) and closed it with the paper still mostly stuck to me and then proceed to fall backwards on the toilet seat which has NO cover on it because it's stuck to me. *sigh*

I'm just praying that there were no security cameras in that bathroom.
