death and taxes, man. what are you gonna do, right?
but tax funded stuff kind of saved my life once.
so i try to be as grateful as i can.
i’m not really very texan. i don’t really belong here. but (because of their crazy unfair tax laws) they have pretty great schools (unless you live in rural texas in which case they have appalling schools) and warm weather – both of which my kids needed badly (warm weather was a health thing for my kid’s asthma – it’s a long story).
texas was a bitter pill for me… i’m californian. i grew up on the beach. i’m a communist-hippy-leftist-libtard-gunhating-treehugger – and most texans hate most of those things.
here is my original avatar for the original RapidWeaver forum. yes it’s me.
but since i’ve moved here (to austin – which is kind like texas-light) i’ve met some great people. and houses are basically half-priced compared to california – so my house is stupid big and has a pool. and the place has really grown on me. it’s hard for me to admit, but sometimes i kind of like it here.
i still have serious issues with giant belt buckles though. what the hell? i think cowboys can pick up Sky TV with those things. jeez!
