Shoulda stayed in Houston

by in Uncategorized

After having done my small part to ensure that America’s growing energy needs are being met, I arrived home from Houston late last night and discovered that the house I am currently living in now closely resembles my dorm in Moscow, without the benefits of actually being in Moscow (i.e, babushkas selling Baltika for 20 rubles). You see, both our internet and shower were broken (the internet, obviously, is now fixed, but apparently we can’t use the shower for a bit longer in order to let the caulk dry. Whatev). My roommates blamed the broken internet and shower on yours truly and told me that I had to move to Texas. Well, I am (eventually) and I’ll be stealing their dog, too. (He does want to go, BTW. Whenever I ask him if he wants to move to Texas, he gets really excited, although that’s probably due to the voice I use. Thinks he’s getting a treat or something).

I have a bit more to write about the past couple of days, including part two of “eating like a Texan” (am thinking of making this a regular series), but for now I must prepare for tonight’s Wii tournament at Olga’s house.

    I have lived and worked in Houston since 1970, and wish I could leave this polluted, traffic jammed place, yesterday. I worked for all the crooked oil companies, including Mobil (for 5 minutes after they put Superior Oil out of business), and Schlumberger. Iceland would be far superior to live, then this place!!!!

    I think if you were to suspect anyone of plotting to steal the dog, it would be Laura 😉
    Mike, I’ll trade you DC for Houston?

    Ahhahaa… from what I can tell, Laura would be more likely to kidnap Tucker than Lindsay…

    yeah, but laura is legally bound to live with me for the next 10 months. she can’t steal the dog just yet.
