Yes, you get points for Disneyland.  Give yourself about 1,000 because I am arbitrary like that.

 

You are so awesome. But then you have "texas" in your name, and we Texans are just awesome like that.

 

Also sometimes arbitrary.

 

Which can be good or bad.

 

In your case, it's good.

Loyalist.  But I like you anyway.  66,000 points for starting page 6.  And another 1000 for liking Spalding.

 

I'm going back to the thread that doesn't exist, where nothing subversive at all is going on….

OneStep gets 1,000,000,000 because she is in Texas and cuz she's my favorite.  :D

 

(Don't look now, but I think we may have attracted spam, the highest compliment.)

Ok, you know what. This isn't fair. I'm crowning myself winner and Queen. So there. Also, California's better than Texas.

 

You can tell her that he will be five years old at the end of May, and that he is going to Disneyland to celebrate. :-)

 

Do I get points for Disneyland?

Awe man. We want to go to Disneyland! She'll still call him her baby.

Surely I can get some points for being THE VERY FIRST ONE to award points. I'm the one who started this points thing and the only thing I've been offered is the opportunity to mop a floor for points.  I mean, what????

I am an extra dose of arbitrary and random.  It is part of my charm.  Give yourself an extra 45 points for saying "Texans".

You are not a decent person.  In fact, you are the worst person I know.  I'm having a hard enough day, and you try to make it worse.  Minus a million points for saying that CA is better than TX.

Yes, I am having a terrible day!  I lost a contact, horribly sprained my ankle (again!), dh erased my browser and all of my favorites, and I had an awkward convo with my brother about my dad's future care and living situation.  

 

The upside for all of you people is that anyone who feels really and sincerely sorry for me gets as many extra points as they want.

 

P.S.  Today is my 16th wedding anniversary.

I believe that the appropriate exhortation here would be "Suck it up, Buttercup."  I mean, really, bootstraps are for firemen. Sweaty firemen. Wearing kilts.

 

It's 12:57 p.m. here. Is it close enough to call the end of the school day?

Hi Chelli. ;)

 

Hello! Thanks for the link to the Texas thread.......

 

I'm getting a late start to the points, but I'm going to do my best to catch up. I do have a few negatives to start with though.

 

1) I'm actually born and raised in Arkansas so not a true Texan. I just moved here 8 1/2 years ago.

2) I still prefer pork over beef for BBQ, but I do like the slow-cooked Texas method.

3) I do not like the part of Texas I live in (Houston) when it comes to weather and landscape, but there are parts of Texas that I do really like (Hill Country, San Antonio, Fort Worth).

4) I do not, nor will I ever cheer for UT in football. I would never be able to show my face in Arkansas again.

 

Now I plead my case for points.

1) Buc-ees and HEB are my two favorite Texas stores. I think every state should have them.

2) The pecans down here are crazy good and really big. Best pecan pies EVER!

3) When I lived in Colorado, everyone thought I had a Texas accent so even though I'm not from here apparently I talk like I am.

4) I received 85% on the How Texas Are You quiz. I failed when it came to gas station food. I just can't do it. I'm too much of a foodie.

5) The awesomeness of Texas highways with wide shoulders and high speed limits makes it like the American Autobahn.

6) While I might now like the weather or landscape of Houston, the shrimp is out of this world! So good and fresh off the boat!

7) The homeschool laws in Texas are the best in the nation. No argument to say otherwise shall even be addressed because it's too ludicrous to even consider.

8) I really want to meet Texasmama in person. I think we could get in a lot of trouble have a lot of fun together.  :sneaky2:

9) My very nicely numbered lists should count for beauty and ease of presentation.

Until the bluebonnets are gone, and then Disneyland trumps.

I have a similar problem with my badly sprained ankle.  Walking on crutches hurts one's underarms, yo.  I am pushing fifty and have NEVER used crutches.  Weird.  I had to borrow them from my dad.

 

True, sad and amusing story:  In order to make it to co op this morning to teach my class, I had to drive my boys to the Goodwill store, give them money, and ask them to buy me some crutches.  Well, they bought the only pair there, which were too short (I'm 5'10"), had one rubber stopper missing from the bottom and had NO handholds.  Then, when I got to co op, I had to call my friend to come park my car so I could walk right in the door.  After co op, I drove to my dad's house to borrow his crutches, which have HANDHOLDS.  Nice. :coolgleamA:

 

Taking a bath a bit ago was interesting, too, given I was trying not to hurt myself, suspend my sprained ankle out of the water and not wet the road rash on the other leg I got when I hit the pavement.  It's bad to be me today.

 

My plan is to sit here and waste time on the internet because I can't do much else.

It's likely they're not sized properly if they're hurting your underarms.

A native of Arkansas says you are free to pull for Rice, Baylor or A&M. According to the Anti-Longhorn Society of Arkansas, those cheering for UT are not allowed back over the border.. :laugh:
