  1. The national media just suggested that the refugees go to Dallas since it is the "closest big city". LOL!
  2. I had a birthday party there as well as attended some.
  3. Going a little further off topic here. Another prime example of how Southerners are viewed: This is from some idiot in Florida (of all places) on a UK board for the TV show "Lost". The following was a response to a thread asking how many Americans there are on the board.

  5. Here it is. It's not one single rant, but a compilation of things people hate. Scroll down to Emily's hate: http://www.collegehumor.com/articles/247733/ She's obviously an ignorant moron, but I think it echos how a lot of non-Texans perceive Texas. Not Dallas or Houston or Austin or San Antonio, but Texas in general.
  6. To anyone outside of Texas, we're all just Texans. To anyone outside of the south, we're all rednecks. People from both Houston and Dallas need to realize that and stop with the petty arguments. Who are we trying to convince? No one cares. A couple of weeks ago, I came across the biggest Texas-bashing rant article on the Internet (sorry, but I can't remember where), and the person who wrote it admitted that he'd never even been to Texas and he didn't want to go there, either. They were talking about Texas and Texans in general.
  7. Gee, HtownKid, I thought you were from here/lived here all along. Seems you've been posting here as long as I have. I had no idea.
  8. "Flipper" saved a lobster and then set it free in fresh water!
  9. Austin's getting an Ikea, too: http://www.prnewswire.com/cgi-bin/stories....04089413&EDATE=
  10. Article: http://pitchforkmedia.com/features/weekly/...-helsinki.shtml Someone should inform them that Houston is not the 5th largest city.
  11. CNN will present a documentary Taming the Beast: Inside the War on Cancer. The documentary is scheduled to air on 13 August at 3:30 pm. The CNN
  12. I've heard of that show, but I didn't watch. They weren't portrayed as rednecks, were they?
  13. Well, she was my aunt by marriage. I still occasionally see her, but that commercial was a long time ago and people change. That's part of its charm. That's so funny. If that's the one I'm thinking of, just this morning I saw one of those commercials and was thinking how annoying she is.
  14. For local commercials, the worst are the Kemah boardwalk and Trader's Village commercials. So annoying and not at all creative. "The fun never stops (come and get it), the fun never stops...at Kemah boardwalk". Duh, hilt hilt...der. The best local commercial in Houston history is the Thunderbolt Transmission commercial. It looked soo "Urban Cowboy". Everyone used to say that woman looked like my aunt at the time and she did. They remade it a couple of years; I don't know why they just didn't keep the old one. It's so retro and nostalgic.
  15. What's so annoying about this time of year is that I'm still shopping for summerish clothing and all they have out is clothes that we won't need until about November. I think it's cute that Houstonians want to wear winter clothing so bad. lol! Does anyone get that impression? I like seeing someone walking down the street with earmuffs on in 67 degrees. Cute.

  18. That wouldn't surprise me. CNN doesn't even have Houston in its weather scroll amongst every other major city at the bottom of the screen.
  19. Oh, but I hate dressing that way. I hate winter clothing. If I have to wear anything warmer than a lightweight long-sleeved shirt, or better yet, a lightweight three quarter length-sleeved, I'd rather just not go out. My ideal winter dress attire is not having to wear anything more than a lightweight three quarter length-sleeved shirt. Luckily, living in Houston, I don't have to for the most part. Me too, but it beats shoveling snow, I reckon. I'm not saying that I love heat and humidity. I just know that I hate the cold and dreariness. I'm glad that our cold spells are only a couple of days long before it's back to the mid/high 70s again. Of course, though, it's murder on my lips.
  20. Stories like that crack me up! I think maybe I've told this before, but when I was 3 or 4 years of age, we went to Arizona to visit some friends. During our stay, we took a trip to Grand Canyon where we encountered a couple from England. When they found out that we were from Texas they wanted to know if we knew who shot J.R., if we ate steak for breakfast and then they had their picture taken with us! I guess whatever the image, if people consider it positive, that's pretty much OK with me.
  21. Has anyone ever seen those trash programs about Texas that TRIO often airs? I think they originally aired on the BBC. They're so ridiculous that it's better to just laugh them off. If people believe everything is the way the media portrays it then they're just ignorant. It's not even worth it.
  22. I love playing with Google's satellite feature, but it desperately needs to be updated. The Toyota Center and Downtown Aquarium are just empty lots.
