Goodsh*t: Austin, Texas

Before I was a New Yorker, I was a Texan!
And I fully intend to get mah "twang" back!

Yawl check back with me now, ya hear? I will have extended my vocabulary in the meantime thought I would list a little Texan Terminology while I'mmatit:

Fixin' - (fix-in). About, when used with to, pronounced "tuh", as in "I'm fixin' tuh go to the game." Or, the whole of the side dishes included with a meal when made plural "fixins", as in "We're havin' turkey and all the fixins."

- (big-oh). Big ol', big ole, or big old, as in, "That sure's a big'o truck."

Whole 'nuther - (hole-nuther). A whole other, an indicator of something altogether different, as in "That's a whole 'nuther can o' worms."

Kerr's lyte - (Coor's-Light) Beer. "How's 'bout nother round of Kerr's Lyte?"

Yawl - (You-All) the pronoun of the second person plural "Good to see yawl!"

And of course, a little Waylon and Willie and the boys:

And rest assured, we gonna Honky Tonk when I get back! YEEEEE-HAAAAAW!

I just got back from TX last weekend also. My mom was so psyched to take me to eat at Fernando's, where not only Kay Bailey Hutchinson but also George W. himself have recently dined. She was in Republican heaven, and I was in queso heaven, so we were both happy.
