Just Passing Through...

Betwen two trips (one to Austin last Thursday, one to San Antonio today), I just wanted a quick check-in.
Saw Serenity again Saturday (with two friends who havent seen it yet plus The Husband and The LQ because we like it)--and I still like the series better than the movie. I wish they had a chance for more seasons, so that the story'd unfolded at a better pace, instead of crammed into a movielength presentation...but still, it was much better than any of the new Star Wars movies.
I'd love to have Inara's apartment at the training house, though (without the obligations...) :-) That style is actually rather close to mine, with a bit less Buddhas and incense, and lighter wood tones. And I'd kill for the dining table at the ship. Yes, I know, it's strange what I pick up while watching something the second time...

Sunday we walked a lot, that being the day we finally made it to the Texas State Fair. Much fun. More food...no, we did not quite feel up to the deep-fried peanut butter-and-jelly-and banana sandwich, but had corn dogs, bratwurst, dolma and cotton candy plus root beer. And the butter Elvis is totally frightening.

There will be pictures soon-but first I need to survive another overnight trip. back later!

Hmm.. at our fair, its almost always a butter cow, or something. one year I went though, and it was a butter Dwight Eisenhower. That was also pretty freaky.

Anna hopefully has pictures as evidence. As an eyewitness, it was scary. A big, butter dog house with two, life-size hound dogs, done in butter. A life-sized wooden table with a hound dog sitting on it, all done in butter. And in the middle of it, a life-size, early Elvis, in mid-song-and-mid-gyrate, with geeetar -- all in butter.

I suppose at least it wasn't a velvet elvis
