  1. Tried that, and it wasn't good at all. Very disappointing. I was hoping for something like Itoya, but it was really for wannabe teenage Japanophiles and manga enthusiasts who have never been, and likely never will be, in Japan. It takes forever to get stuff delivered from Itoya, but it's worth the wait.
  2. My wife gets her fancy ink from Dromgoogle's in Rice Village. Does anyone know of any similar stores in Houston? Or even southeast Texas/Louisiana?
  3. Most days it seems like the Chronicle is 40% restaurants and food articles. It would be nice if two of those food reporter positions could be converted into one local news reporter position, instead of what appears to be farming a good portion of the "local" content out to interns in San Antonio. /Dead tree subscriber
  4. The New York Times sent out a national alert about it. Here's a gift link to the photos its using: https://www.nytimes.com/2024/05/17/weather/houston-storm-photos-video.html?unlocked_article_code=1.sk0.k9kf.bepQAZCSmAmR&smid=nytcore-ios-share&referringSource=articleShare&sgrp=c-cb
  5. Of course, you are correct about the franchising and the owners not being versed on every local regulation. But that's why they hire general contractors and other people experienced in this sort of thing. They're supposed to make sure everything is correct. I didn't necessarily mean to imply that Marriott Corporate was at fault.
  6. I went down to CVS to get milk. Lots and lots of workers cleaning things up. Looks like they've been at it since the wee hours.
  7. This stuff is everywhere. But a lot of it is under leaves, so be careful walking.
  8.

Crews will continue to assess conditions through the day and we will issue further alerts if there are any updates to service.
  9. The weather guys were really on it. More than 24 hours notice that this was going to be really bad, and then it arrived right on time. David Paul said downtown at 6:31pm, and it arrived right at 6:30. Lots of downtown streets are closed because there's so much glass everywhere. It's really hard to resist going outside and looking, but i know the good citizen thing to do is to stay out of the way.
  10. A friend of a friend sent this to me from the area of Franklin and Travis.
  11. Yeah, KHOU was treated as the bastard stepchild in the Belo family. It was a waterfall. The money, praise, support, and attention went to the Dallas Morning News first, then WFAA, then KHOU. I always felt bad for the KEYE people; they weren't even on the radar. I was once told that there were people up at WFAA who were mad that CBS had its Texas mini-bureau/office at KHOU, and not at WFAA. They thought that it should rightly be in Dallas. Since I've returned to Houston, I've watched the local newscasts occasionally, and few of them are better than when I left. Then I stream the stuff from Dallas, and what I've watched is really quite bad. 90% hype and fluff, and the anchors seem to think that one tube of makeup is a single serving.
