Well, folks, I've arrived safely in Houston and am staying with the very generous mother of a very good friend of mine. However, upon arriving about 48 hours ago, I've had my blogging urges jump started in a slightly different direction--mainly, that of life in Texas as a Californian Coloradoan.
Therefore, check out Stranger in an Even Stranger Land. It's just getting started, and despite the unavoidable literary reference in the title (I can't help it--it's compulsive!), it probably won't have very much to do with literature, but it'll be chock-full of cultural observations which are sure to be at least somewhat interesting. At least, I hope they will be.
