Flaring my nostrils wasn't working anyway.

I got to work today and immediately tried to wiggle my nose in a desperate attempt to teleport back to Texas. When I left a week ago to go visit my friends from college, I knew I was going to be miserable when I got back home. I love Chicago, but I hate being one thousand miles away from my boys.

But then tonight, I was uploading some more pictures to Flickr and basking in the memories. I was on the verge of tears when I came across this one.

Lol, it's all a matter of perspective, eh?

Funny, I posted a sign today too.

Welcome home :)

Well, the best part is that the vast majority of Texans don't see a problem with that sign. In fact, I've heard people remark "Yeah! Keep East Texas purddy! That's a good idea" as they flick their cigarette butts on the ground.

God bless Texas.

I love ads/billboards that make fun of local dialect. There's one here in northern Minnesota for the local zoo, and it reads "Oh, FUR FUN." I groan every time I pass it.

Deus Ex Fimus - The lack of an apostrophe in "aint" was the cherry on that sundae of awfulness. I will now spend the next month twitching. Thank you.

Jamie - From my perspective, I would like to make East Texas literate. *shudders*

Thursday's Child - I wouldn't call that "the best part." It's more like "the worst part." God help Texas.

Tez - I would like to run around with a GIANT RED SHARPIE and correct all these signs. The people would love and adore me as a superhero.
