The stars at night

Are big and bright
clap clap clap clap
Deep in the heart of Texas!

Lisa wins a coin purse for being in tune with my uterus.

This is Lisa's prize for her freakishly accurate prediction of when Will would be born (seriously, she was off by ten minutes). She and her husband moved to San Diego from Texas a few years before Lorne and I came here, and we met when she befriended me at my last job. Lisa regularly threatens to disembowel anyone that might think about being a jerk to me and is 40 different types of awesome.

An off-center picture of the innards.

I associate Texas with Lisa, then with this clip from Pee Wee's Big Adventure. I've trained myself to disassociate it with our current president.

My parents moved to Texas from California a few years ago. I went to visit them and they took me to The Alamo and...SPOILER ALERT- its totally not like on Pee Wees Big Adventure. I was expecting tour guides, and Inez with her clay pot, and tortillas (can you say "tortilla"?) and wanted to ask about the basement. I was sad.
