Yeah. I haven't lived there since I was 13, and I was so sad to leave it back then. But I wouldn't leave Houston at this point. Partly because I still consider NOLA a disaster area. Every time I have been back since Katrina, it still looks like a storm rolled through the day before. I love that city, but in more of a romantic sense. Just standing in Jackson Square still just overwhelms me. On the other hand, Houston is my home now. I have been here for almost half my life now. And I know that now I am old enough to make a decision about whether or not to go back. And I have no intention of going with them if they do move back.

Like for us, we have a set payment, the economy went down and we are still paying the same that we were originally quoted. My mother in laws home is right smack downtown, and where she is, it started to really boom over the past few years. No real change to her Mortgage either.

Yeah I am not sure, to be honest. My parents have awful financial logic for a pair of accountants. Maybe they are just looking for an excuse to move back home. Because if you think about it, why not just move to a cheaper part of Houston if that was really the case. But the more I think about it, the less I think they are doing it because of the money.

Well, you have 2 years to figure things out Pat.

So, no rush.

And Paul ... yes, you and me both need to work on our cars.

So, I don't think I mentioned this in here or not, but as some know I am planning on selling My ST in favor of a drift icon. That initially was an 81 Celica GT. But that looks like it is going to change, and in a direction I have been dreaming about since I was a child. I am about to acquire an 86 Corolla. So, it's looking like I'll have one less car to check off the old Bucket List. AE86=ftmfwwtfbbqdslr!

Yeah, they're both pretty sad, no? But truth be told, I never thought I'd live to see 40 and I'm 37 now, so I'm getting what I can out of the way now, lol.

Oh, and yes Paul, I have seen Fist if the North Star, both the manga and the movie, lol. Manga=ftw.
