My life in Florida

I am finally coming to terms with the fact that I am winning the "Worst Blogger of the Year" award this semester. I am finding that doctor school and blogging do not always happily coexist. So again I ask for your forgiveness, and please know that I think of you lovely ladies often!

It is no secret that I am not particularly fond of the state of Florida. I feel that I am just "doing my time" here while in doctor school. About a year ago, I started compiling an "Only in Florida" photo album. I added a couple of great photos to the album this week, so I thought I would share a few with you.

{This is a hairball right outside the door of a very nice restaurant. Yes, someone cleaned out their hair brush and threw the hair on the ground before going inside to have a nice dinner. Only in Florida.}

{Tampa has an alarmingly high number of strip clubs. A stripper lives in my building, and she's always leaving parts of her work outfits in the parking lot . Only in Florida.}

{I've been seeing these signs for 3 years now and they still make me giggle. I actually took this picture at church last Sunday. Only in Florida.}

{While checking my mail box on Friday, this little guy came into the mail room and hung out with me. Actually, this would happen in Louisiana too. Isn't he cute? I think I need a pet raccoon now.}

Hope you enjoyed this glimpse into my life in Florida!

WOW, how crazy. I love the little raccoon! I actually have a friend who's mother has a pet raccoon....only in Nebraska, ha!

that's probably the same damn raccoon that got into our ice chests whilst camping and ate all my hot chocolate mix...

Hi! I'm sorry you've been so busy with school, but once it is over you will be Dr. Southern Belle ;)

The photos from Florida just cracked me up. I cannot believe the stripper leaves pieces of her work costumes behind. The feeding or molesting the alligators one is pretty funny too.

Geof lived in Boca and in Orlando. He said he was pretty happy to move.

Wait, how did I not know you were in Tampa? And yes...our fine city does have a ridiculous number of strip clubs. Did you see how they had concession stands outside of them during Super Bowl on Dale Mabry? So classy!

Too funny and SO very random! I love it! That raccoon is so cute!
