Foodie Tour of Austin Restaurants Featured on Reality TV

2 Comments 09 September 2013

It should come as no surprise that Austin has been on a butt-load of reality TV shows. Why is it not a surprise? Because Austin is currently America’s shiny ball that they like to poke, play with and stare at. Many of those aforementioned reality shows are food-based. The culinary scene in Austin has grown [...]

*The Day I Drank a Bud Light Lime-a-Rita and Wrestled a Snake

7 Comments 29 April 2013

  We happened upon a snake ball yesterday. It’s not as cool as it sounds. Before yesterday, I always thought a snake ball is when prepubescent male snakes put on their bow ties, ask to borrow their ‘rent’s Caddy and impress the female snakes with their dance moves learned from watching Michael Jackson clips on [...]

4 Comments 30 October 2012

My boyfriend has a band. They’re called The Karate Kids. They sing about the Karate Kid movies including the ill-advised remake starring Will Smith’s son. They wear prosthetic limbs and perform each of their songs in the kicking crane position. If this doesn’t sell you on them already, check out some of their songs. Side [...]

Billy Bob Thornton, Won’t You Come Out to Sing?

No Comments 17 September 2012

There are so many reasons why I love Austin and now I have two more to add to the list: 1.) Billy Bob Thornton reportedly moved here and 2.) Club de Ville is trying to coax him out with a Billy Bob Thornton Welcome to ATX Karaoke/Costume Party tonight from 8PM to 2AM. Not only [...]

On Growing Up: When You Become Too Scared to Jump Into the Water

13 Comments 04 September 2012

Last week, a friend asked me how many jobs I currently I have. As I rambled off the list of regular employment and one-time projects for the month of September, I realized I counted all the way to 14. It took hearing this to finally legitimize the stress I’ve been feeling lately. Going freelance means [...]
