Texas Tech moved up in the rankings?

Well not yet.....I'm just saying getting rid of the forum art work is better than moving up.

Had I known sooner, I might not have transferred - the art was THAT BAD!!!

Georgetown right?

I was up in DC right after finals and loved that area.

I've gotta figure out a way to get the Army to assign me to Ft. Belvoir or the Pentagon after OBC.....norther VA/DC is gorgeous.
TexasTiger, are you going JAG?

what the hell? why dont any gas stations have 93 octane gas around here...and who uses 86?
i went to 5 different pumps today and the highest they had was 90!

secondly being a dry city is going to be a slight hassle. I guess i'll be going to the depot to stock up tomorrow.


I had to say those to things because everything else about lubbock I love:
the people are wonderful
it's slightly cooler than dallas
it has most of the major restaurants/stores that I'm used to from dallas.
it's not so small that it uncomfortable, it's just small enough that it has retained it's charm.

What do you drive?  Running up and down the highways out here makes it pretty costly to run the premium stuff, so we natives stick to the cheapest fuel available.  The farmers and ranchers that have diesel pickups are a bit more fortunate, since they can knock about 50 cents off the price of diesel by running non-taxable farm diesel.  Of course, if the government catches you running that diesel on the highway and not just on the farm, they'll fine you $10,000.

However, as for your question about the premium gas, did you check the Walmart on the Loop between Slide and Quaker?

Amen.  It's hard to beat West Texas: good people, low humidity, and a nice breeze.   ;)  And like you said, Lubbock has more than a sufficient supply of restaurants.  If you can't find a good place to eat in The LBK, you're probably just too picky.

TexasTiger, are you going JAG?

Yup. After I got commissioned they put me in the educational delay program. Once I pass the bar they'll switch me over to the JAG Corps basically. Actually quite a few ed delay guys at Tech. I'm friends with a couple Marine 2LT's who are doing basically their version of the same program.

secondly being a dry city is going to be a slight hassle. I guess i'll be going to the depot to stock up tomorrow.

I've heard a new rumor that the SuperTarget they're building around Brownfield Highway and Milkwaukee Ave. is going to be able to sell beer and wine because it's outside of the city limits. But this is just a rumor, and I thought that area had been fully annexed already, so who knows.

I was up at campus today taking care of some bidness, and one of the student workers said finaid would be disbursed for us law students on 8/14, FYI.

And TexasTiger, the reason you couldn't find the donkey show in Acuna is because it's in Nuevo Laredo. Duh.

Dudes,

Belvior is good.  There are a lot of positions in the N. Va/DC area but the one thing you must do is to join the Army Navy golf club as soon as you get commissioned.  If you don't the price goes way up.  Not only is this the consumate good old boy hook up place but, it is also a good course.  If the President plays this is his home course.
Cheers and beers,
Olds

thanks. i'll have to check that out. i checked at sam's today and they only had 90 so I didnt even check later when I went to that wal mart.
that new super target will be just a couple of minutes from me. so I'll keep my fingers crossed.

as far as what i drive, i like telling people i drive a 93 corolla. ;)

Don't go bagging on the Corolla now. It's a fine automobile.
