Note

I feel bad. Like a bad host, I've neglected to invite you all to Houston for a visit. Be aware that the weather is now GODAWFULHOT, so leave the parka at home. Bikini's are appropriate (for everyone except Mike - I'm serious dammit!). Now that it's hot it's going to stay hot, and that means Houston smells like WARM sewage.

Except on Sunday nights. I love to go for a walk around my neighborhood on a Sunday evening, since it smells like Bounce and/or Snuggle (when all the other condo-dwellers do laundry). So if you're coming, make sure you're here for the weekend.

There is something lovely about the smell of fresh laundry hanging on a line in the sun.

Here, weekend evenings now have a slightly bitter, ashy smell about them as people take advantage of their newly renovated open fireplaces to push back the chill shadows that creep in earlier and earlier in the afternoons.

Here when everybody does laundry the only thing you notice is the cursing as people unknot their clothes. Japanese washing machines tie clothes in knots. That's about all they do, but they do it VERY WELL.

My neighborhood smells like Mexican food. There is a Bravos right down the street.

Well I assumed my invitation to visit was a standing one...

And you wanna smell a town that reeks all the time?? Visit Savannah. That place STINKS.

Hooch- Were I not prowling the neighborhood after dark, the weekend smells would include BBQ grills cooking the one non-fast-food meal of the week.

Theic- No better way to learn the language.

Z- Why am I not convinced that "Bravos" is terribly authentic Mexican food? Do they make the servers wear pieces of flair?

Aide- Naturally, but it also assumes that you'd actually come instead of YET ANOTHER trip to Vegas. (Vegas baby!)

Mike- Oh, NOW you know when I'm talking about you...

#3Moo- New ad slogan, "Houston. Come for the heat, stay for the traffic"

Boo- Sorry, it's hot sewage or Snuggle here.

ESC- If a peach ever learned how to smoke brisket, I think you'd change your mind. (But the best pig in town is within walking distance from here.)

I hardly think that a lowly little two trips to Vegas constitutes "YET ANOTHER TRIP" to Vegas.

And you know, Minnesota is very nice this time of year! ;)

We complain about the heat, it iS GAWDAWFUL HAUGHT. But, we have some of the best Mexican food this side of the equator. Other smells i love when taking a walk around Allen Parkway in the evenings

They have some tex-mex as well as some authentic items. All the waiters are illegal.

I got robbed last night.
