I'm TRYING to use the PHONE!!

I feel like these title words will prove to be quite prophetic as I am leaving tomorrow for a fun and family-filled vacation.  And by 'fun' I really mean the opposite because I'm travelling to the void known as west Texas.  It's the land of big hair, tumbleweeds and Jesus but not always in that order.  It's also the land where things like Frappuccinos and cell phone towers are few and far between.  I'm not even going to THINK about the lack of internet connectivity because the Madame might curl up in the fetal position in the corner trying to rock myself into blissful oblivion trying to remember what a liberal looks like.  Me so scared...  Hold me tight internet people!

Fuckers wont' let me embed the video that makes this post title relevant so go here to relive your favorite Pee Wee moment.  You'll be glad you did.

I wish TX was awesome like that bar but it's actually more like this:

Wait...  I love shit like that!  This might prove to be a most excellent trip.  But I swear to gawd if they have a dial-up modem I'm going to punch a longhorn steer in the face.


  1. Sounds like fun ... Unless they ran out of bacon :-P

  2. They have no idea what is heading toward them. I will stay glued to Fox News for updates. Happy trails!

  3. Be sure to check out the basement in the Alamo.

  4. @Pickering Mike Don't even JOKE about running out of bacon!!!!!

    @Rich I would like to fulfill my life's goal of making it onto an episode of Glenn Beck as an example of a crazy liberal. Once there, I would give a shout out to my family b/c I already know they tape every episode and watch it multiple times.

    @Paul If I could "mecca lecca hi, mecca hiney ho" my way there right now I would!

  5. I live in west Texas! In Laredo - about the only Democratic city in the state! Not to worry, I doubt Glenn would ever step foot here, except to show the atrocities of the border. And by atrocities, I mean the lack of a decent cafe other than Starbucks.

  6. You will be missed on Twitter. I hope you find an internet connection and give us a shout.

  7. @Cham I didn't even know there WAS a democratic city in TX???!!! Learning all the time...

    @Brian my internet blackout was a literal (and emotional) dark place in my life. *shudder*
