pimps and prostitutes at the truck stops. It is the worse city I have seen
in that regard. So you wouldn't consider Dallas' summers to be intolerable?
Whose summers would you consider to be worse, STL or Dallas? Iowa or Dallas? What's it like for bike riders in Dallas? Is there much going on in terms of bike trails in the Dallas metro? I don't like riding on the side of the road.
Your life is just 12 inches and one distracted driver away from being over.
It's too risky.
There are biking trails around, but I would NEVER suggest riding in traffic here....you're right, your life would be over in an instant.

I just went through my first summer in the Metroplex. I was used to the weather on the west coast, where there isn't any humidity. Of course we had much more rain than usual last summer, but it does get quite hot, and the humidity makes it seem even hotter. It's not intolerable though unless you're out in it for a long time.

I'm sure I will get used to the humidity.

I see people ride in traffic and I always think they are insane/brave. Saw a guy yesterday on the 75 service road, turning left onto Beltline. I'd be terrified!

lol Well, on the accent thing....as you know I'm a Californian...I was in a store the other day where the cashier asked if I was from New Jersey of all places! So much for no CA accent, huh?

New Jersey?! I think some people hear something that they think is different but they may not have a clue as to where it must come from. Obviously, the checker falls into that category.

That's what I thought too. I don't have a nasaly sound to my voice.....which is characteristic of people from NJ.

I'm from St. Louis, and it wouldn't be my first choice.

Default God bless Google!

I typed in 'crazy crystal', and Google got me to you within about 3 pages!


I'm currently working on a production of THE MOST HAPPY FELLA, and for the last several days we've all been saying to one another, "Okay, I know what Nieman Marcus is... but what on earth is 'Crazy Crystal'?"

Could you possibly enlighten me? I can't tell you how much I'd appreciate it!
