    dallas is pretty fucking awesome. the men look douchey but are actually incredibly nice and courteous. the women are beautiful. the cost of living is ridiculously cheap. good food.

    i could see myself living here. but, that being said, i do miss boston a bit.

    had a great party for my wife last night for her 40th birthday. we had wanted to do something special for her birthday, and then last time we had a birthday party for her was for her 30th birthday - where we took about 25 friends to a resteraunt for dinner. this time I suggested that we take friends out to eat, but she said that she would prefer to have friends over to our house. so we bought a bunch of food and liquor - colombian empanadas, falafel and humos, sushi, a lot of high end cheese and salumi and ham, stuff like that. we got a bartender and a waiter, and a whole shitload of booze. we downloaded a lot of music from the 80's and early 90's that we used to dance to. 45 people showed up - we had a lot of fun. the only issue is that we ended up with an insane amount of leftover food and booze. it was a lot of fun - we even had a couple of SFers - Buster and Lou. my wife is very happy, and it was a lot of fun all in all.

    my wife suggested that I plan on having a birthday party this year - we have a huge amount of leftover booze. I had gotten a 1.75 liter bottle each of bourbon, rye, gin, vodka, and two of tequila, and 12 bottles of wine, plus I had about 100 bottles of beer left over from the summer barbeque, and we had a bunch of fifths of better quality booze. we actually consumed 3 large bottles of tequila (bought another one in the middle of the party) and about half the large bottle of rye, and half the beer and wine. but we have most of the rest left over.

    yeah, my wife's favorite drink is grapefruit margarita, and so we had the bartender making pitchers of them. I thought that most people would be drinking other mixed drinks, but jsut about everybody drank the margeritas.

    For a city this size, the traffic and parking are a miracle, too.

    Ehh...the Rangers and Mavericks are top tier in their sports, and the Cowboys are consistently a contender even if they always fuck it up in the playoffs.

    You don't see a ton of cowboy boots in Dallas proper. At least not in the parts anyone here is likely to visit.

    Absolutely. I've only been here for three days and the traffic honestly wasn't bad (compared to Boston, at least). Are you from Dallas? I love how it's very much a driving city since I love cars and driving. That being said, I saw a TON of fantastic cars.. porsche turbos, sls amg, lots of mercs, a couple m series bimmers. Didn't see any lambs or ferraris though.

    Oh, and the drivers are super friendly. Theyll let you into their lanes and don't drive like dicks. Great city overall.

    TJ Yates actually stepping up and making some passes is making me a happy camper.
