Five Things that Surprised Me About Texas.


Last night I got home from a nine-day trip to various parts of Texas. It’s a long story… but it was a longer drive. So, my blog has been abandoned a little bit this past week and a half, but I’m here to post a mini

1) Asian food! I had some really, really yummy Asian food in Texas. Specifically, Sonny’s Diner in Fort Worth, and the decadent Hong Kong Buffet in El Paso. Sonny’s Diner had fantastic Vietnamese, and the Hong Kong Buffet had lots of seafood and sushi—I had a whole plate full of sushi! Also, they had bacon-wrapped shrimp. I think that says enough.

2) There is wifi on the Interstate! Most big chain roadstops like TA or Flying J’s have wifi nowadays… but you have to pay $2.99 for an hour. You can also buy 24 hours worth of time or a membership, so you can check in at various stops as you drive. I however, didn’t really have the money to do this, so I stopped at various McDonald’s in the morning and/or evening to use theirs free.

3) There’s a yarn store in the small town I may or may not end up living in. This both surprised and relieved me, because I LIKE my yarn, folks. And sometimes Joann’s and Michael’s just don’t hit the spot. Yarn shops are hard enough to find these days, so finding one in this small town was nice… sadly it was closed the day I was there!

4) Texans like their flag. A LOT. Okay, this really didn’t surprise me, since I’ve spent my fair share of time in Texas before, but it always makes an impression.

5) There are a lot of undercover cop cars in Texas. And by that, I mean I saw a lot of them with their lights on, chasing after people at high speeds. I wasn’t there that long.

Seriously, though… my favorite thing might have been that plate of sushi and the bacon-wrapped shrimp. De-lish.
