Q: How many surrealists does it take to screw in a light bulb

A: It takes two. One to hold the giraffe and the other to fill the bathtub full of brightly coloured screwdrivers.

Back to Texas.

Well, my advisor got a really good job offer from University of Texas at Arlington. He accepted and will be bringing the most of the research group with him, so it looks like I will be moving back to Texas.
I'll be getting an effective pay raise, because the cost of living is much lower there and I won't have to pay for my own health insurance.
With the extra money, I intend to get a car. Having a car again, will be so nice and convenient. I was thinking a light pickup, for the utility, but does anyone else have suggestions on a car? Remember my budget is somewhat limited.
Its a somewhat better research university than where I now am at, and its a public university so we should have more money at our disposal.

I miss Houston!

I miss Houston.
I miss the heat,
I miss the humidity,
I miss the friendly, pretty girls who would smile at you when you nodded their way or howdied them as you walked past.
I miss the brightness at night.
I miss the really, really good restaurants.
I miss the trees!
Florida doesn't seem to have to many real trees.
I miss free concerts in Herman park.

Well, enough nostalgia for now... I like Florida just fine, but I really miss Texas.

Your dream car.

Every guy has one, a dream vehicle. We all promise ourselves when we are old enough and can afford this thing we will get it. Somewhere along the way we forget because of bills, family, mortgages, etc. Then we hit our midlife crisis and realize we haven't fulfilled any of our dreams so we reach out and buy the car... because at 40 its one thing we can still do. With 600 horsepower and other amaisingly awsome goodies, well, here she is in all her beauty, the car of my dreams.
