I haven't been to Texas since my family's first (and last) road trip, in 1984, to my grandparents' 50th wedding anniversay. (In retrospect, it's a rather amusing story, but the highlights included my sister's broken leg, shriners/clowns--of whom I am deathly afraid--staying at our hotel, and a Deliverance moment on the way home in which our car broke down in rural Arkansas.) Alas, MW and I are off to Austin for the weekend to visit my dear friend MT, eat good Mexican food, listen to music, and drink beer. Hopefully it will be better than my last trip to the Lone Star State (fingers crossed--no clowns this time!). I'll be back on Tuesday night with sales, Golden Globes fashion, and perhaps a shopping report from Austin. Come back soon!
