Re: Quest for #1

Yeah. One of my best friends in Houston grew up in the Boston area. She lost her accent, gained a taste for Mexican food, warm winters, and she couldn't bear to go back for more than a few days..... but shhhhhhhhhh

Don't let them know that there are actually nice places to live, there are SO many of them!!

Re: Quest for #1

Not that bad?

I thought all those things were good.

Hey, I didn't like Mexican food when I first got to Texas either.

And here's something I've noticed. People in the northeast say, I'm eating Italian. Or I'm eating Chinese. But people from the west and southwest (can't really speak for elsewhere) always add the word "food" after the adjective. It's interesting to me.

Re: Quest for #1



The Westside Tennis Club is located at 1200 Wilcrest Drive, Houston, Texas. Houston Bush & Houston Hobby airports are both close to the club.

Why don't they say that both airports are equally inconveniently located to the club? "Close to" is a riot. I guess that new beltway helps, but everytime I go out there, I feel like I'm on a star trek mision or something.

Re: Quest for #1

Yeah..... I saw that too, and did not think the airports were close, even though I'm not exactly sure where the club actually is (after almost 4 years you'd think I have my bearings in the city by now). The airports are not close to ANYTHING

Re: Quest for #1

Hobby isn't too far from downtown. I used to fly in to Hobby all the time, but now I don't think it is used by any airline that I use to fly there. I liked Hobby, because I lived in the Montrose area and I could be home quick. And please....... don't draw any conclusions ... Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Re: Quest for #1

Oh, I'm content.

The only excusable loss is to Schuettler...so if he plays well he should make the semis.

It's no guarantee, but I liked fixed draws.

I say more stupid stuff at https://twitter.com/Hurleytennis.

Re: Quest for #1

That's one of the best draws Andy could have gotten. I am glad.
