  1. Greetings Howard, You are in Kabul? Totally cool........well, I tell you what......I for one am going to allow you to really use your imagination for a moment......... ........where could I possibly be working........here that is within the rugged confines of Afghanistan........but yet I am not really allowed to reveal much about my employment situation or actual location that is.........actually, you and I are really quite close in proximity that is.........just know Howard that the actual company is indeed headquatered out of Houston respectively..........somehow, I think that you may soon have it......big big company........ Yes, I shall be going on my first R&R in a few months......and I am most certain that I shall be venturing back into the comfortable as well as magnificent confines of Dubai and really have good look around........you know, the works.....for those pictures from our buddy whom just visited really look good......since I was acutally in route to my job site......we only stayed for a brief visit.........but even however brief it was.........it was still exotic.....as well as extremely exciting.....for I just cannot wait to return to stay for abouit ten or so days.........Metro
  2. Greetings all......from Afghanistan, I have very recently had the great pleasure of spending a couple of nights within the very comfortable confines of DUBAI in route to my new job in Afghanistan respectfully. PLEASE BELIEVE THE HYPE! For as I ventured into the Dubai International Airport, I can honestly assure you all that it was a welcome experience that I will never ever forget. Simply unbelievable experience......nonwirhstanding..... Just mix in the immense heat factor along with the throngs of locals as well as tourist from everywhere imaginable.....and you will experience a sense of pure excitement that is almost surreal. BIG YES! Construction cranes are simply everywhere.......as in 20% of the worlds supply........plsase, please experience the malls......for they are simply amazing........and your American made back pockets will simply love the DUBAI DURHAMS.........3.5% exchange rate to boot....... GO THERE! TRUST ME ON THIS ONE......... Metropolitantexan
  3. Greetings all.... Just wanted to bid you all a GRAND FAREWELL (for a couple years that is..) while I venture into the tormented country of Afghanistan respectively. NO! NO! It's not what you may immediately be thiniking, for I am certainly not in our magnificent U.S. military.......for it is a work related venture with Halliburton KBR. Actually, I will be presiding over a lucrative administrative venture upon the bases of Kandahar as well as Bagram. This is a venture that I have been working hard to acquire for quite some time now.......for now it has come to pass........and I will be flying out shortly...... Please Haifer's, take good care of our fair city for me, for I am certain that upon my return.....Houston will be gleaming like never before........ BIG THANKS! For all the LOVE that you bestow from day to day......for I am certain that I shall miss the day to day routine of strolling down the sidewalks of DOWNTOWN HOUSTON during my lunch hour(s).......and thinking about how lucky I am to be a TEXAN first and a Houstonian second.........nevertheless, I shall be writing to you all from time to time from afar, as well as send in a few post cards to the photo segment...... BIG LOVE TO YOU ALL! GOD BLESS...... Metropolitantexan
  4. "in lieu" of your jibber-jabberous wanderings around our language, but hence state, merely to let it be known by fine people whose standards are higher than mine, that you sound stupid. Greetings dalparadise..... "YAY, but that I did not mean to cast myself as policeman" .......my oh my, my partner in blue......please be careful with your profound take upon jibber jabber -- for one certainly would not want to allow you to tarnish your self proclaimed "finest" label....... .......talk about stupid -- for you have indeed created the monopoly...... Metropolitantexan
  5. .....I duly salute the Wolfpack indeed for their profound accomplishment. But the good thing about AUSTIN, TX, THE MAGNIFICENT! 'Is that the Burnt Orange glows even better the next year"....... ......Oh, and by the way, I send apologies for my grammar faux paux -- nevertheless, please shall we direct the grammar policing to none other than dalparadise, for he/she certainly must think that they have indeed created the monopoly upon perfection....... Metro
  6. Greetings REDSCARE..... ......you hail from the dear old south my gtreat pal -- so it would be clearly an understatement to indicate that you should hereby be accustomed to the very fact that "there is certainly more than one way to skin the catty" -- for I duly seem to remember your undying take upon.......ohhhh...... what's his name now........REGGIE BUSH.........the next President of the United States . OH SNAP! Old Reggie now resides in THE BIG N.O. WAIT ONE MINUTE NOW! Just what is that all too familiar noise REDSCARE? NO! no, it is not the next Hurricane Katrina...........I think it's your GLASS HOUSE CRUMBLING................let's be kind to our guest, great pal....... Metro
  7. Greetings ALON504, apologies are in order.......as per the shocking insults, as well as the profound nuances being hurled at you in lieu of your enlightning aforementioned post....... ......WE ARE TEXANS! For we are so much better than this. Please sir, I for one did not find you initial post to be insulting to the City of Houston, are to any of it's 5-million plus citizens -- first of all, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for not only enlightening us with such a controversial post ......but also for taking the time visit HAIF in the first place. WELCOMING our visitors/posters is usually the norm around here..........for Houstonians are normally the most courteous citizens anywhere...... REDSCARE -- TJONES -- to name a few.......I'm appalled.......Just what on earth has happened to you guys? DIPLOMACY first and foremost, should in fact be the name of the game around here -- in lieu of this particular format of chatting with each other....... for ALON504, was only relaying/reiterating a few candid statements from someone with whom he shared a previous conversation with.......this poster just does not deserve this kind of unfair as well as shocking form of abuse from you guys/gals. The post may have not been all that funny per se -- but it was certainly interesting in it's overall passion, as well as hidden truth.......JUST HOW ON EARTH ARE POST KATRINA VICTIMS SUPPOSED TO FEEL in lieu of the many horrid circumstances that these individuals must face every single day? Actually, I'm a bit surprised that the statements were not a bit more severe in lieu of the way some of the NO citizens are still being treated.......I can only imagine the heartbreak that many of the citizens must feel knowing that FEMA is still locating bodies of post hurricane victims even as we hurl insults across this once proud forum....... SOME OF THE NO CITIZENS JUST DO NOT HAVE MANY PROUD DAYS LEFT UPON THIS GREAT EARTH -- for memories are everlasting......... ALON504, you seem to be an intellectual with a sense of style, for I gather as such from your statements in regards to shopping at the Galleria, as well as staying at a respected hotel. I for one, am most certain that you are quite familiar with the overall makeup of the Houston citizenry -- from a standpoint of our race and class structure. EXTREMELY DIVERSE! FINANCIALLY STRONG! CONFIDENCE ABOUNDS! THE WORLD IS OURS.....if you can catch my drift..........and I'm confident that you can..... for in lieu of these insults and negative nuances, I think that you are certainly aware of the REAL HOUSTON, as I shall step up to the plate and thank you for your annual patronage to our fair city....... COME NOW HAIFER'S -- for we are not strangers to the word respect! For this is how we generally should approach one another no matter what message comes forth. THIS IS A GREAT FORUM -- for our candid responses to any said topics -- generally form the way others shall view us from afar.........FOR WE ARE TEXANS! Metropolitantexan
  8. Greetings all.... .....maybe we can sum up this seemingly predictable thread in two words THE CULTURE! Yes! yes, that's it, let us somehow come forth and change "the culture" of the way we houstonians uproach this new and rapidly changing urban core, aka central business district (CBD) or even otherwise known as DOWNTOWN HOUSTON..... WE ARE ALL ACCUSTOMED TO THE POLITICS OF THE FINANCIAL INCENTIVES......now are'nt we? For are'nt we the ones who vote for the city councilmembers/mayor that introduce this form of tax initiatives/innovations? I for one have.... MAINVOICE.....just what is it that you are really trying to get out of your system? For it certainly seems that you are just "chomping at the bit" in regards to this all too familiar/peculiar thread -- you know that I love you good pal, but as well traveled as you certainly seem.....surely you are smarter than this right? We Houstonians are surely not the only ones that are going through this new mode of urbanization, for this is happening all over the country. But just as REDSCARE has indicated earlier..."it takes time" as well as big time patience. HOUSTON, has within it's very storied past/history, a verifiable nature of being one of the most ultra conservative cities that is known to modern man. Whether we like if or not, we are all the sad relatives of the "good ol boy system" from way back in a day. YES! We have indeed cleaned things up a bit -- but the very remnants remain........ CULTURE CLASH, is indeed happening all over this great city of ours.......we see it in the new urbanization of UPTOWN HOUSTON, we are seeing it in the ever evolving and rapidly growing MEDICAL CENTER, we are recognizing it in the new concepts/innovations involving the new designs regarding MIDTOWN.......for the baby boomers are moving back into the urban core -- as well as the new influx of citizens that are rapidly filling up our great city from all corners of the globe.......FOR ONCE THE CULTURE BEGINS TO CHANGE TOWARDS A MORE PROGRESSIVE NATURE INVOLVING THE QUALITY OF LIFE ISSUES REGARDING THE CBD -- then so will the attitude toward future investment. Houston simply has to let the world know that we are "READY TO SWING A LITTLE"..........for whether we care to admit this or not -- Dallas has been doing this for decades......and that is why they seem to be so innovative, as well as progressive within their approach to getting things done, as well as staying the course. DETERMINATION is the key, for we are going to have to be determined to be patient, civilized, as well as sophisticated within our approach......THE NEW DOWNTOWN HOUSTON IS GOING TO HAPPEN! For it is almost like a child awaiting christmas morning.......you know, "the visions of sugarplums routine" -- just keep in mind that the rapid change of a city's culture from one that has for decades moved at the ultra conservative pace of a snail -- to one that is moving and gleaming with a hip-hop rhythm -- is never going to be an easy asset toward mankind -- but an asset nevertheless.......

  9. MY GOODNESS LargeTEXAS! You know that I love you -- but somehow I sense that there must have been a few beads of pure sweat dripping down from your face in lieu of this startling revelation........ .....for we all know simply how hard it is for you to reveal certain details of future development etc. etc. Nevertheless, this is simply an incredible coup for the "Humble Tower", for this kind of street level fashion business will certainly invoke that certiain "aura of cool" that many street level merchants look for......if this boutique really is one of the COOL SHOE STORES that we are all really familiar with -- than this is a coup indeed...... Certainly seems to me that "THE GODS of the Houston Pavilions", are certainly starting to smile down upon downtown Houston...... for I am almost certain that this area is indeed poised to become a fashion retail heaven in the near future -- but then again, only you know that for sure...... right? ......just take your time.....keep us posted.......for this is why we love and trust you......... Metropolitantexan
  10. GM SEMIPRO = HILARIOUS! I am most certain that even the man on the moon knows by now, just what he is saying RS.......please remember the very first word spoken upon the moon.........HOUSTON! RS, you know that deep within your heart of hearts, that the MIGHTY VY should indeed be the first pick of the TEXANS............for I am indeed SHOCKED that you have somehow started the meltdown dance ..........and have allowed yourself to join the turncoats.......for as a season ticket holder yourself, you should know that the VY is indeed so badly needed to turn things around upon that 2-14 national laughingstock....... reggie bush, looked like a dryed up prune the night of the ROSEBOWL........somehow, I for one still do not believe he really knows who actually won...........but I think that he will indeed OPEN HIS EYES UPON HEARING VY'S NAME BEING CALLED AS THE FIRST PICK...... Metropolitantexan
  11. I have been glancing.......reading........and definately rolling my eyes at yours and DJ's post for several weeks now semipro........MY GOD! For even Ray Charles, as well as Stevie Wonder, could SEE what you two have been writing in regards to the upcoming draft.........it's just that, it is nothing that we have not seen or heard before..........ANY ORIGINALITY? I AM A REAL TEXAN! For I hold firm to my convictions........VINCE YOUNG IS INDEED A WINNER........and he will WIN BIG WITH THE TEXANS! Metropolitantexan
  12. ARE YOU FANTASIZING DJ? For simply the gargantuan sums of money that the TEXANS are paying DC, just accepting a draft pick is not going to sit well with the fans of Houston. For please believe me when I state that we have indeed seen it all , upon these same tired related issues nonwithstanding........ JUST WHAT ON EARTH, MAKES YOU THINK THAT THE TEXANS ARE GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL THIS YEAR OR THE NEXT? As you have so eloquently stated, this team is building from a 2-14 national laughingstock, into a new mode of respectability.......and this just does not come overnight........for VINCE YOUNG does indeed have his place upon this team, when he is indeed selected with the first pick.........just like all of the other rookies upon this upcoming draft. DJ, please do not forget that not only is Caoch Kubiak a veteran coach, he also a highly respected quarterback guru......... I have absolutely no problem allowing DC to prepare himself towards respectability under the tutelidge of Coach Kubiak........but I for one, and along wth legions of HOUSTON TEXANS fans, certainly want to see VINCE YOUNG standing along the sidelines, learning and preparing to takeover and lead us to the next level indeed........WINNERS DO THOSE SORT OF THINGS, YOU KNOW! Metropolitantexan
  13. YOUR POST REEKS OF ARROGANCE! But for what it's worth proHouston, somehow, I sincerely think that you are a good guy, with a good heart.......for I have indeed read many of your prior post......... NEVERTHELESS, I simply do not need for my any of my post to bring an "elevated respect" to any entity regarding the MAGNIFICENT TEXAS LONGHORNS.........for simply, the name "TEXAS" is already built upon a GRANITE ROCK OF RESPECT! LaMarcus Aldridge, should stay his overly ambitious behind in school. To not only finish his education, but to also help guide THE MAGNIFICENT LONGHORNS to their first basketball championship respectively. Hey great pal, I simply find it amazing that you seem to be so LOADED WITH COMMON EVERYDAY OBJECTIVITY.......but yet you seem to harbor the audacity to underestimate my integrity........ well now, I guess that I will be the one to just sit back and see just what you will come up with next........ HOUSTON, IS VINCE YOUNG COUNTRY! Metropolitantexan
  14. US! Oh no RS........please don't tell me that you are one of the one's that are harboring those SHOCKING BELIEFS.......no way RS.........no, not you too............no RS.........no THE BURNT ORANGE SUNSET IS BEAMING! Metropolitantexan
