Pete's Log: Everything's bigger in Texas

Entry #1240, (Travel)
(posted when I was 23 years old.)

So I spent part of spring break visiting Annie in Dallas. Mamie and I drove down there and Mom, Dad, and Diana flew in. So we had some fun family time. We stayed with the Sisson's in Dallas. They've been hosting Annie during her theater apprenticeship there. They have a huge house.

We got to tour the theater Annie worked at, meet her friends, and so on. It was fun. One of Annie's friends took us on a brief driving tour of Dallas. We got to see the spot where JFK was shot; grassy knoll, book repository, and all. Morbid tourism at its best.

We also saw a performance of "The Burnt Piano," a play put on by the interns of the Dallas Theater Center. Annie had a part in this play as a young boy. It was a good production, I thought.

Dallas roads are crazy. And I'm unimpressed with the drivers there. I also picked up a new power supply for my powerbook while there, because mine had decided to die ("Dear Apple: please, for the love of the gods, learn how to make powerbook power supplies that don't suck. Love, Pete"). And we got to eat at a California Pizza Kitchen. Yummy, yummy.
