Alert: Nerds in Texas increased by 1

I really feel the need to add a drawl to my words 'cause I'm sure in Texas. Of course, the only thing stereotypically Texan about the place is the vast expanses and land, and the cows. But other than that, my good friend and host made Nabe (Japanese hot-pot) and took me to Olive Garden. I've also done a good deal of nerding out, from quoting Big Bang Theory to explaining the differences and similarities of The Lord of the Rings books versus the movies.

To make matters even geekier, my fiance informed me that NASA was bombing to moon in order to analyze the dust particles in the hopes of finding evidence of water. I responded "They must have figured it worked with the comet, so..." He was surprised I knew about it because many of the physics students he was with hadn't heard about the comet. Oh, the strange things I feel proud of for no reason at all...

Traveling always gets my mind reeling. My friend I'm staying with is an avid gamer and decided to play me the soundtrack to Silent Hill 5 (which I've never played). I was blown away by the vocalist, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn. It rekindled my long-standing dream of someday singing for a video game.

On a sillier note, while in the bathroom of Einstein Brothers' Bagels, I spotted a poster of one of the infamous (and fictitious) brothers holding some papers and saying "The acoustics are great in here."

And yes, yes they were.
