Austin Highlights I Previously Didn't Mention

(to be continually updated as people send me photographic evidence and the "oh yeah!"s set in. co-austiners, please chime in in the comments)

  • Seeing Zack from Gilmore Girls in REI and Book People
  • Learning that Saddam Hussein had been killed from the announcer at the Yellow Rose
  • Running into Chris Snyder in a random bar downtown
  • Cooking a traditional New Year's Day feast for everyone for good luck in 2007
  • "Angel Crotch opening up for the Faceless Cocks" and the plethora of other band names developed and album covers shot throughout the weekend
  • Joey -- soberly -- jumping into the hot tub, fully-clothed
  • The Day of Four Burns, a Rope Burn, and Many Side Burns
  • Distgusting facial hair and gradual isolation levels by most of the guys, culminating in the cermonial burning of Reed's and Sam's 'staches in the bonfire
  • The misinterpretation of my "my mouth is full" sign language as, "I have already cried enough tears for all of Austin"
  • Front rolls with big finishes
  • Fergilicious
  • Peppermint Ice Cream
  • T Shirts
  • "I miss Annie," "Annie's so nice," "What's Annie doing?"
  • Everything associated with everything Stegmaier did on New Year's Eve
  • Intentional and unintentional matching outfits that cropped up throughout the trip
  • Countless hours spent dancing and singing in Chris' pool room
  • Sequined speedos
  • Chris' ribs (like, bbq ribs, not like the part of his body)
  • Emo's new years party with Starlight Mints, Black Lipstick, Octopus Project,Flametrick Subs + Satans Cheerleaders, and Hotrod Hillbillies

There was a strung out guy outside the Whole Foods selling compilation CDs from 1997 for fifty cents a piece, which he'd clearly nicked from a garbage bin outside of a label or publication. We bought them mainly because the crazy look in his eyes said that he might kill us in our sleep if we didn't.

There is (was?) a great place called Cheapo discs that dealt in scratched CDs. They had more copies of R.E.M.'s Monster than I think were originally printed.
