  1. *Billy-Bob Gautama drops the mic, walks off stage*

  2. Of course not! The only reason to com here is for the *food*.

  3. Preach it, Caliann – food’s at least the BEST reason. Getting away from 6′ piles of dirty snow everywhere you look is another…

  4. Okay, food and *warmth* are the best reasons to come here. LOL But, I must say, there is a certain wisdom in a plate piled high with homefries, steak, biscuits, all slathered in cream gravy with a nice side of of lemon-pepper greens that have been simmered in enough butter to cause a coronary just by themselves.

    I won’t get into our Tex-Mex….yet….

  5. TEXAS: COME FOR THE BARBECUE, STAY FOR THE WISDOM.



    You say “I’ll pass on the wisdom, I want a second helping of that barbecue”?

    Already you are becoming wise.

  6. Billy-Bob is really more of a Taoist, isn’t he?

  7. Ahhhhhh, grasshoppah! Already you move towards enlightenment.

    Now, would you be so kind, in a manner of speaking, to pass that potato salad?

    Arkansas: Come for the meth, stay because you sold your car to buy meth.

  9. “Okay, food and *warmth* are the best reasons to come here.”

    Texas has at least 7 big biomes that are not alike. But the one I spent time in had five seasons:

    Summer #1
    Fall
    Spring
    Summer#2
    Hell

    Some of the food was almost worth it.

  10. One of the times, in Las Vegas, when Steve and I went grocery shopping, a cold front moved in while we were in the store. As we came out, the breeze hit my dressed-for-the-desert body, and I shivered, exclaiming:

    “Jeez, it’s FREEZING! It MUST be 70 degrees!”

    Steve, being from Minnesota, nearly died of asphyxiation on the spot.
