What are you doing to occupy your time? I am on vacation and hitting poolside and Clear Lake on jetski. SPent some time with old friends. Completed a 2013 draft mock for Houston and will watch lots of college ball. Reviewing Houston's roster and contracts.

I'll be watching the Red Zone TV while my wife goes to a Jewelry party.

She had tried to dodge the jewelry party by saying she had to stay home and watch the Texans play. Then she found it was the bye week.

Every Friday I wear a Texans jersey to work. I have a bunch of different ones that my friend in China sent me for a modest price and I vary which one I wear from week to week. The bye week is "Earl Campbell Friday" where I wear my columbia blue Earl jersey. It's the only day of the year I wear it. My wife doesn't understnad that this is not a wardrobe choice, it's a ritual.

I told her to think of the NFL season as a giant 40oz bottle of malt liquor. It's all mine but that one week when there's no Texans game, that's the "one for my homies".

She thinks I'm retarded.

PC gamer. Right now my favorite game is Endless Space. For the $30 I spent for it on Steam, it's given me many hours of enjoyment. It's a turn based space colonization/war type game where you go colonize planets and build spaceships and battle/make peace/trade with other aliens species. It's fairly typical, but it's cheap and the game interface where you do most of your playing is top notch.

Less intricate, but more addicting. There is a HUGE “gotta play the next turn” factor here that is even greater than in Civ. At least for me anyway.

The biggest negative factor I've seen is the number of newbies to the game that can't seem to figure it out for some reason. I visit the game's website some to check out future updates and stuff. Some folks just don't seem to get the simplicity of these types of games. Colonize, secure resources, build up military, then win by your favorite method (science, diplomacy, military, ect. ect).

I kind of did tonight what I was going to do Sunday, I had a date with my wife.

Went to the Saltgrass Steakhouse on 183 near Braker.

Atmosphere: C-
Appetizers: F-
Steak: A
Steak cooked as ordered: F

Overall, not worth the $76.00 ($90.00 with tip).

If I were on a first date there I would have felt the cards were stacked against me.

Our company's HQ used to be across the street from the Saltgrass south on 59. We would go there about once a month. What I found was Saltgrass is good for their salads and steaks, but NOTHING else on their menu. And way overpriced, even on the lunch menu. And very slow about getting your food to you.

This has been my experience with Saltgrass too. Decent steaks if you don't starve to death waiting on them to show up. There are too many good steak houses in Houston ...hell, Texas period... to waste my time at Saltgrass.
