    Jon--it's the difference between living life, and seeing it through pictures.

    Yeah, well North Africa is not on top of my list. I do travel, but its going to be a while until I hit North Africa.

    On African food, we have excellent Ethiopian in DC.

    I can't believe you guys live without:

    The Chesapeake Bay.
    The 9:30 club.
    The Black Cat.
    Dodging tourists in Georgetown in May.
    Fort Reno.
    Mauro's Denim Bar.
    The Smithsonian.

    If you ask most people:
    Metro.
    Ben's Chili Bowl.
    Five Guys burgers.
    Beltway traffic.
    Marion Barry.
    The President.

    California, though: Mountains just three miles north of me. Dry, warm days in March. Grilling in January. In a t-shirt. Friendlier people in better stores. More fit people in general. Joshua Tree and Yosemite. Better drivers. The beach. Actually, the sea. In 'n' Out Burgers. I need a double-double animal style please. And a Vanilla shake so thick you hurt yourself drinking it. Taco trucks. Geniunely chilled out people (it's not a pretense - I think it's the weather.) Jamba Juice. Bookstores where people actually talk. It's not a library, people. Better bookstores (I shit you not. Vroman's in Pasadena is better than any bookstore I've been to in Boston). Ridiculously large newstands. People who can actually dance (whether it's upstep or Tango.)
    QFT. To this I would add, to represent NorCal: The Napa valley. Sonoma. Biking through the Marin headlands. Big Sur. Mission taquerias. Wearing a hoodie in the evening in June. And to add to the SoCal list: waking up on a January weekend morning and having to decide, "Do I want to go snowboarding today, or do I want to sunbathe on the beach?" Then deciding to just do both. And a big +1 on the sea for both NorCal and SoCal (no +1 on "the beach" for NorCal, though). All things I can't believe I live without. On the other hand, from the Philly perspective: I can't believe you all live without easy access to NYC despite not actually having to live there. Also, for the Californians and basically all Americans not from the Northeast: I can't believe you (we, formerly) live without actual public transportation.

    Ladies & Gentlemen, we've found a true original.

    What's it say about you that even the white-flaggers have more balls than you, picture boy?

    Whaa? You only eat North African food; you're not actually traveling to North Africa to eat the food. Unless you call sitting next to the Seine eating food in front of a mime performing "╦ťballsy'.

    Why? Morocco's awesome, and Tunisia has some of the most stunning beaches I've ever seen. Incredible food everywhere, too.

    Probably read too many Paul Bowles stories and got scared off.

    huh? Is that a Da Vinci code thing? Sigh. Another summer, another Tom Hanks movie to avoid. Maybe if they make him a Bond villain I'd watch him.

    Only if he dies a really graphic, painful death. Then I'm there.

    For sure, I'd rather live on one of the coasts though Austin is by far the most liberal and tolerable city in the state. I certainly plan to move but Central Market and the barbecue are what I'm going to miss the most.

    Austin is on the top of my in-the-country travel to-do list. I hear its a great city, especially for record shopping.

    How many of your stupid posts do we have to edit before you get the picture?

    You are on thin ice my friend.

    Dude, relax.

    RJman were having an intertwined conversation on the forum and through PM's, we were both screwing around with each other. Trust, me it's friendly on both ends.

    Speak for yourself, bitch.


    Just kidding. Sort of. After the 3033rd time, the French-bashing gets a little old. At least back off a bit and let those of us who have to live with them have a little space to bash them ourselves.
