cop out.

OK,  so this is a bit of a cop out, but until I have the time/energy to post anything proper about our trip, my tweets about it will have to do. There’s not a lot once we left San Antone/Austin, but at least it’s something. I am so run down and exhausted after this week, I don’t even know what to do with myself. And of course the first time I actually am the one wanting to turn on the TV and watch something, the damn thing breaks (or at least doesn’t work for me…) Maybe we’ll be getting an upgrade on the boob tube after all…

Keep in mind that in order to read these in order, you have to start at the bottom and work your way up. Don’t blame me; blame Twitter.

  1. listening to some old skool country as we descend into Houston…about to dust off some old memories from a former life
  2. spoiler alert: nearly everyone is receiving souveniors from buc-ee’s gas station. namely, bumper stickers with puns about beavers.
  3. has definitely seen more TX flags than US flags on this trip… how can this place be considered so patriotic?
  4. I absolutely love the smell of fresh earth after a rain storm…
  5. lesson 3: based on first 2 lessons, best to not talk about your Mexican coke and weapons.
  6. lesson 2: best to clarify you are talking about foam dollar swords and weapons when you refer to the weapons you’re glad you purchased in TX
  7. lessons i have learned in austin: it is best to clarify you are talking about coca-cola when u tell people you are looking for Mexican Coke.
  8. but before we officially head out of the city limits, it’s time to visit one last taco trailer. I will miss these when we leave.
  9. leaving austin now. sad to be going, but excited to surprise the inlaws, visit some old haunts, and see our friends in houston!
  10. ended up stumbling on a 90% off comics sale at the shop Erin frequents. Donnie got $350 worth of stuff for $35. he is on cloud 9
  11. if you’ve never been, 1/2 price is the mecca for all ur book, vinyl, vhs, and dvd needs. and the particular location we’re at is HUGE.
  12. 3:30 in austin and a little drunk off margaritas…now indulging in 1/2 price books.
  13. just spent $2 on a coke just so I could use a bathroom. I am going to force myself to take a dump now.
  14. had breakfast at a taco stand/car wash. And it was amazing.
  15. platform foam sandals should be banned and their owners publicly shamed.
  16. I kind of strongly feel that all cars in TX’s horns should play Dixie.
  17. I’m pretty sure I forgot to put on deodorant this morning. I’ve since rectified this, but I think the damage is already done…
  18. waiting for a ride at the airport is like waiting for a date you’re only 90% sure will show up.
  19. amazing how much authority a whistle gives a person. That is the only object of force directing the traffic flow…successfully, i might add
  20. based on the comings and goings of the san antonio airport, methinks a citywide extreme makeover is in order.
  21. I feel more culture shocked in the San Antonio airport than I ever did abroad
  22. Seriously, there should be laws about having a minimum of 50 stalls in womens’ public restrooms.
  23. fat people and cowboy hats abound. Welcome to Texas…
  24. time to shut down my portable electronic device…
  25. blackberry master also has a personal cell. how does he keep up? i guess i have 2 hours to find out…

  26. apparently we all turn into 3rd graders riding the school bus with the prospect of sitting next to a stranger on public transport…
  27. my “date” for this flight is a middle aged businessman who seems a little flustered. he’s a master on his blackberry tho.
  28. It’s like your social standing can be summed up by who’s willing to sit next to you and breathe your air for 2 hours.
  29. seeing who decides to sit next to you on a flight feels like waiting to see who’s going to ask you to prom.
  30. and seriously, if there was a plane crash, what good would those little seat belts do us anyway?
  31. waiting in chicago for the 2nd flight… super painful landing for my ears, but they’ve popped. yay! fingers crossed for the next one.
  32. In case you were wondering, I will be obsessively updating Twitter in lieu of my beloved Facebook because my mom-in-law is not on here.
  33. Also, traveling through time zones is like journeying in some sort of space time continium.
  34. Has seen 2 city skylines thus far with the anticipation of one more by afternoon…
  35. Apparently wearing Yankees gear at the Philly airport/aboard outbound Philly flights is just as bad as wearing it to Philly stadiums…
