We had a great time in Houston, as always. Good to visit the family, good to visit friends. Austin is a great city to live in, but nobody else is here.* If only all of our loved ones could be here, too. We need 350 mph maglev trains connecting all the cities, so the trip to Houston or Dallas would only take half an hour.
* Sure, there are new people we've met in Austin, but they can only supplement and never replace one's old friends. Unless they're super-awesome. Naturally.
