Deep in the Heart of Tejas!

LJ, please; let me tell you about my day!

    It was quite nice:
  • I woke up at 8:30 to shower and make breakfast before heading to Coffee/Brunch.
  • At brunch, I had a surprisingly engaging conversation/ranting at regarding Poly Dynamics which, unsurprisingly, is the emotional cousin of Fluid Dynamics.
    • The keys being friction and viscosity.
  • I then caught a very uneventful and quick direct flight to Fort Worth from Madison.
  • This was followed by a long wait for the rental wherein I was given a PT Cruiser to drive.... just like everyone else.
    • Srsly, every coworker with a rental is driving a PT Cruiser. Texas has emasculated me and many, many people today.
    • I am not, nor ever shall I be, a soccer mom.
  • A fun drive to the hotel which I actually remembered without directions.
    • Apparently it pays to come to Dallas three times. Well, unless you factor in the humidity.
  • I then met the unabashedly saucy and shockingly attractive chandrielle for dinner.
    • We ate here and had some delicious hunks of cow.
    • The weird thing I posted? A fork designed to eat the marrow from the bone in the osso buco she ordered.
    • I ate marrow tonight. How about you?
    • That is almost indecent. :D
  • There was a large amount of scintillating and hilarious conversation.
  • Now I am back at the hotel relaxing and trying to fix the shutter on my camera which has decided to be finicky now that I'm in a new city.
    • Commie bastard
The remainder of the trip? Looking up. I have another outing with the lovely mentioned previously for margaritas on Wednesday and am actually looking forward to exploring the city a bit.

Now. I shall sit (no pants!), fix my camera and revel in recent memories, Texan and otherwise!

Edit: Reason shutter wasn't engaging? Finished the roll. That was a fast 36 shots. Good thing I brought more flim[sic]!

I've eaten marrow before. It's like meat butter.

It wasn't my first time. :)
That's kind of how I described it to her.

Not your first time? Does that really surprise anyone about you? Marrow whore!

Haha, oh the silly days of film. I still have a hard time imagining how I was EVER happy with 24 or 36 shots --- and no more!

I'm pretty sure I wasn't, really. :-)

Can't wait to see the film pics!

Me too. I'm always curious how they'll turn out with this camera. I never know if the shutter stuck which happens infrequently, but enough to be neat. :) Also, mentally calculating exposure is kind of hard.

The stuff I have here is redscale negative. Should be fun!

I'm blushing. You're too sweet. I have you completely fooled. Muahahahaaaa.

Yay margaritas! Don't be alarmed by what I do with my first one....

OMG And I totally did NOT get lost leaving Dallas and my friend Linda is so proud of me. She's like bouncing all over that I went to Dallas and didn't get lost or have a bad experience. Thanks for helping me get a start on getting over my fear.

HAHA you got a PT cruiser! I shall now commence with the mockery.

*snort* It's totally indecent; what are you talking about?
