Fantastic Things to Love About Texas

Since the time has come to leave Texas again, I thought I would pinpoint some of the things that keep me coming back:
  • Most importantly, of course, my FANTASTIC, FABULOUS friends. No one could be blessed to know better people.
  • Chopped brisket BBQ.
  • The beauty of Texas hill country.
  • Watching King of the Hill and knowing you're here in the thick of it.
  • Restaraunts, restaraunts, restaraunts.
  • Bangkok City.
  • TexMex.
  • Grocery stores with fun imported cheeses.
  • Humidity low enough that you can take a walk outside even when the temperature is above 90.
  • My good friends.
  • The store in the Valley View Mall where I buy cheap little white gold earrings, and where they always act like they are giving you a great deal even though you know you're probably getting their actual regular price.
  • U-turns under the freeways for turning yourself around on the access roads. Brilliant.
  • Lots of movie theaters with stadium seating.
  • Six Flags over Texas.
  • The mix of cultures you meet as you move through town.
  • Gelato.
  • Still being able to give fairly reliable directions, even though I haven't lived here for a while.
  • My friends. 'Nuff said.
