Austin is always yummy. This year’s south by southwest festival has begun. And I’m drinking free beer and eating all the bbq that bikehugger will give me. REI also gave me some nice tire sticks, and crumplerbags.com are giving away bags (!!) Got one of those, some socks and a nice hat. Strangely they don’t have size xxtra fat, yet they keep giving me beers and bbq.
It’s been chilly for austin, but still much warmer than NY(short sleeves and sandals)
And sxsw continues to be the ultimate collection of ultra cool geeks. That means just about everyone would get their asses kicked in the parking lot at a pats game, but I feel comfortable (if not very old) in this crowd. They’re mit media lab kids, facebook founders, brains behind craigslist and many red bull drinkers who are their way to building the next great thing.
L and I are seriously considering moving down here for a few years (likely in a few years) as we both agree that its the perfect town: an oasis of culture in the sea of ignorance that is texas.
Oh- and there’s a dive bar here that sells deep fried pickles. Yup. You aint lived until you’ve eaten ‘dem.
Did I mention the free beer and free bbq?
…Not fat for nothing
