Texas Monthly released a list in this month’s issue of the 50 Best Burgers in the State of Texas. Most of them are in the state’s larger cities like Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, and San Antonio. A good handful also exist here in Austin. Yesterday, a few coworkers and I headed to #30 at the Roaring Fork for the “Big Ass” or “Half Ass” Burger. It was a really really good burger and the fries were awesome. My only complaints were that the bottom half of the bun got a wee bit soggy from all the burger juices and there was a tad too much raw onion on the burger. Besides that the flavors were right on and I would definitely order it again.
Next up, the #2 Best Burger in Texas at close by Counter Cafe…
Alright, I’m going to give this orange I packed in my lunch a try…but if it totally sucks I’m heading straight to the cafeteria to buy a brownie. they’re surprisingly delish.
It’s just so easy to fall out of the groove. I have an excuse though, I was in Arizona at my grandmother’s house that doesn’t have a computer. It was a good chance to be almost totally unplugged. She also lives on the foothills of McDowell Mountain and I get almost NO cellphone reception there. It was magical at times.
So because I don’t have a topic in mind…and the date of my last entry is silently mocking me, I thought I’d post a simple picture of one of my favorite things. I found it on Alec’s tumblog, she knows me all too well. I’ve posted pics of succulent walls before, but this is by far the best one yet!
…to Scottsdale, Arizona for exactly one week. While there I will be spending some quality R&R time with my grandma. Y’all be good!
I finally saw Twilight and now my life is complete because I can understand and gasp*, perhaps in participate in Twilight related conversations (in real life and online).
I recently read this post on GoFugYourself.com and lol’d with delight. My favorite excerpt is below:
all the vampires in Twilight use a whisk instead of a comb to do their hair.
LOVE IT. That description of the cast’s hair styling is so DEAD ON.
Oh, and don’t worry I won’t leave until I comment about that hideous vampire banner I’ve posted…Robert Pattinson looks realllyyy special there…kind of like an autistic bird, i’m just saying. Did they tell him to purse his lips and look pathetic? Really?!?!?!
I want this to be my bathroom. Except when I start to calculate how much they must have spent on the glass mosaic tiles alone my head begins to spin. But hey, some things are worth it.
…but yeah, I’ve made up my mind. This is what I want for Christmas!
Who signs a writhing and screaming baby? Oh yeah, the former governor of Alaska.
