I like that the airport here mostly uses local vendors - Bookpeople instead of the ubiquitous Hudson News, for example.

mellicious: pink manicure (Xmas light gif)
It's December 2nd, and I'm already a day behind on Holidailies. I did expect this, actually, since I've been out of town - I guess I could have been really dedicated and posted from the computer in the hotel last night, in the little "business center" they have, but it didn't occur to me at the time. The couple of margaritas I had at El Arroyo with[profile] anjea  and my sister might have had something to do with that. In fact, this is the first time in days I haven't had margaritas with dinner. Thursday it was at Yaga's with co-worker's, Friday someplace called "Baby Acapulco" or something like that, and El Arroyo last night. I might have withdrawal!

Friday it was sunny here, and when I got to Austin it was cloudy. It stayed cloudy most of the weekend and finally cleared up today - but guess what? it was cloudy in Houston, and in fact started raining on me while I was hiking across the Economy Lot to the car, and continued raining most of the way home. I don't know what that pattern means, but it definitely felt like a pattern. Although come to think of it, maybe I should refrain from looking for patterns in cases where it's meaningless, considering that I had to listen to my sister natter on for half the weekend about The Secret and how everything she's wished for since she read it has come true. (It took her a long time to tell me that it was The Secret she was talking about; first she just said that she's been reading "a lot of self-help books" - which might possibly indicate that she knows deep down that The Secret is total bullshit. Or at least that she knew I would think so!)

We came in through the cloud bank when we landed this afternoon, and all of the sudden there was water on our right - I thought for a minute maybe it was Lake Conroe, but it seemed like there was too much of it - and I was right about that. I realized after a minute that it was the edge of Galveston Bay - meaning we were going north instead of south. I guess we swung around to stay under that cloud bank, or something. It was kind of interesting, because we turned west and followed the Ship Channel for a several minutes - I even saw the San Jacinto Monument, which is when I became sure I was right about where we were!

(Apropos of nothing: why is KFC using "Sweet Home Alabama" in their commercials? I mean, they're not Alabama Fried Chicken!)

I will write more about Austin later - I am watching that "Tin Man" thing on Sci-Fi and I am distracted. (I'm not necessarily saying it's good - I haven't quite made my mind up about that part yet - but it's interesting enough that I am paying attention, anyway!)
