I think it will be lit up through Saturday. I took pictures, but they didn't turn out as good as the ones I posted.

Uhh...Houston's City Hall was bathed in Pride colors for Mayor elects Annise Parker as the first lesbian mayor in US history. This pic was taken in June of last year. You're a little late to the draw Dallas.

Houston's rainbow covers the whole building & can be seen for miles away, not just a small flag on the front.

They revamped the lighting shortly before Christmas. Everything is new. It's never been able to change color before.

Congratulations, on the LASIK! I stepped on my glasses this weekend and Im still getting used to my contacts! Yes it's pretty easy. It's on Main street just down from Neiman Marcus. I parked near main street park, got a cup of coffee and walked down to it.

If anybody should know it would be you. It seems like for the love you have for Houston you would know what houston is doing in this regard and yet you know every single detail about this building in Dallas....a city that you PRETEND to hate.

Super cool. Makes my heart happy

And awesome news about the LASIK, BigD. I've been wanting to do that myself, but the thought of someone messing with my eyeball really freaks me out. Especially since you are awake for the procedure!

Thanks! I was worse than 20/200 prior to surgery; my prescription was -9.5 to -10 in both eyes. I couldn't even see the big E on the chart! I was checked 2 weeks after surgery and was at 20/25.

If I'd known how much the procedure was going to hurt, I might not have done it. I won't lie, it was agonizingly painful. I think they forgot to put in the numbing drops because I felt everything. But even so, it only lasted a few minutes and it's been totally worth it.

OMG, they forgot the anesthesia? Don't go there for an organ transplant! GEEZ!
