They look like our rabbits on steroids.

There are a lot of things in Texas that look they are on steroids... :D

oh.. and one more thing, Jack Rabbits, I'm assuming that's what they were, anyway, are the weirest looking rabbits I have ever seen. They look like our rabbits on steroids. I had to take a picture.

Yeah, our jackrabbits get pretty big. But they're nothing compared to the jackalope:

Yeah, I've never seen a jackalope in the wild before.  Everytime I go camping I keep my eyes peeled, but they sure are elusive little suckers (except not so little).   :D

Mek - no one has posted the mp3, but I found the transcript at

The mp3 will eventually be posted here:

Suzy -
1) Was that a real commercial?

YES!!!!  I searched hi and low for it online.  I laughed so hard when I heard it....and yes, I agree.  There is no such thing as being TOO proud of Texas.  Whenever I drive through the open country, I just sigh and think, "I love it here!!!"  You can almost envision the apache galloping across the plains, the settlers battling for survival...I do love Texas.

Bud Light Presents Real Men of Genius.

Real Men of Genuis

Today we salute you Mr. Way Too Proud of Texas Guy.

Mr. Way Too Proud of Texas Guy!

Men from lesser states might know their state's capital, but you? You know your state's bird, tree and even reptile.

Love that horny toad.

You display your pride with your Lone Star tattoo, "Native Texan" bumper sticker, and contempt for any state that doesn't start with "Tex" and ends with "iss."

That spells Texas.

Sure, there are 49 other states in the Union, but they are smaller, wussier, and the people talk funny.

Yankee wussies.

So crack open a nice cold Bud Light, oh lover of the Lone Star state. Because all that flag waving must have made you thirsty.


I was rolling when I heard it!!!

You'll learn to love Texas.  Hell, learnin isn't even required for some parts of Texas, you just fall in love immediately.  Practice saying this when people ask you about where you're from, "I'm not from Texas, but I got here as fast as I could."  Some ppl can't imagine that a person would want to live anywhere outside of Texas.

Just got back from Texas.. I saw my first roach in the airport on the way back and it was the most disgusting thing ever. I'm not good with bugs...

Aside from that, I cannot believe how big Tech's campus is. After seeing Lubbock, I'm really glad I only have to be there for 3 years. I think I'm more of a big city kind of person. I have an apartment though! Amanda and I will be in Hunter's Way. And she even brought me a "Don't Mess With Texas bumper sticker."  :)

And more updates on my attempt to Texify myself- I had chicken fried steak. It was... interesting. I also saw tumbleweeds alongside one road. Even though you guys told me they're real, I honestly didn't believe you. Haha. I think I could also get used to the weather. It was 100 or 101 on Friday and that was more comfortable than the 90 degree/ridiculously humid and hazy day I came home to.

...and people will try and tell you that Lubbock is a big city...

The heat is bearable in Lubbock, but the closer to the coast you get, the more humid it is. (duh)  I went camping this past week in Paris, Texas and it was 106 in the shade...luckily it wasn't THAT humid.

And you can laugh at me all you want when we hit winter in Lubbock.  I'm sure I'll be bundled up from head to toe and freezing still.

I'm going to run for SBA president on the platform of getting lockers. I don't know where they'd put them that wouldn't be in violation of the fire code or ADA, but I'll lobby for them nonetheless.

All the cool schools get lockers. Don't we want to be a cool school? Do we want others to sneer and say, "Oh, Tech, that school without lockers" as they take that $2,000 scholarship to Texas Wesleyan?

I say an emphatic, "NO!"

We are the students of Texas Tech University School of Law and we deserve, nay, demand, lockers. A car trunk is no place for book storage, as any serious archivist will tell you. We, as lockerless students, are forced to choose among the unsavory options of storing our books in our inhospitable cars, in our carrel where they are susceptible to thievery at the hands of unscrupulous competitors, or on our backs.

We may have one of the best bar passage rates in the state, but what good is being licensed to practice law if we are physically unable to carry out our lawyerly duties because of severe spinal compression from three years of toting casebooks on our backs that leaves us with poor posture and a tingling sensation in our extremities?

That we have gone so long without lockers is a travesty, and to go any longer would be a farce.

Stand up, people of TTUSoL, stand up! Rise against those who would make you carry your books or leave them susceptible to theft or corrosion!

We have lived without lockers long enough, and let it be known that we will not tolerate it any longer!

HERE HERE!!!!!!!  you got my vote!

I'm sure most of yall don't care, but... I met Gene Stallings!!  He's played football for the Aggies, went on to coach the Ags, 'Bama, and the Dallas Cowboys!  What a great and classy guy! 

My dad was joking with him that I would turn into a Raider and Coach Stallings replied with the utmost seriousness and a wink saying, "Oh, she'll never be a raider."  I just thought it was kinda funny.  We talked about A&M and his days playing for the Ags.  I was really impressed with him.

/attempt to liven up the thread on a dull day.

Wearing a "Saw 'em off" shirt or putting a decal on my car is a wee bit different than ripping a bumper sticker off of someone else's car in protest of their views.  To me, "saw em off," and other expressions like it, is a statement of a view, and does not deface anything or insult someone personally.  I guess you could disagree as to whether "saw em off" is insulting, but since it is in the realm of collegiate sports, I think those type of expressions are expected.

By the way....I got HECKLED this morning (coming out of Starbucks) for having a "W" sticker on the back of my car.  Now, I might understand if we were close to an election, but come on dude, I'm just trying to get my sugar-free-vanilla breve latte and get to work, give me a freaking BREAK! 

I can't wait to get back to Lubbock.

I didn't know you worked in Austin...

Haha!  Can you believe this happened in Dallas!?  I live near Cedar Springs and Oak Lawn, which explains a lot.  I absolutley LOVE to go in that Starbucks, or the Whole Foods, wearing my black "W" baseball hat.  Greatness. 

OH!  I DID have my Bush/Cheney 2000 bumper sticker ripped off my car in Plano once....THAT was hard to believe.

LOL!  That is unbelievable!  I don't care what side of the fence someone's on, I'm never going to deface property to express my opinion. 

Sheesh.  There's a right and a wrong way to disagree...

Chris - Yes, I would get on the waiting list for the law school lot (r21).  It can't hurt, although you probably won't get called.

As for the computer, I ordered the D620 and I like it.  I just received it yesterday! Granted, I've only loaded MS Office, and iTunes on it, but I like it a lot.  Its very portable, has 4 USB connections...

You can modify whatever you want on it, pretty much.  I got 1 GB of RAM and a 40 GB harddrive...

I'm also curious as to the cost of books...I really don't want to ask my parents for money, but I may have to.
