For Spring Break this year we headed off to venture in the wild, wild west. Ok, it was just Palm Springs (but with all the old people with eastern accents, openly gay people walking down the streets holding hands, and Europeans who insisted on stripping down and changing in front of you at the pool- it felt a bit WILD!!) Rodney had a convention and so we all piled in the car and headed out with him. While he worked we enjoyed many hours at the beautiful pool. The flowers everywhere were gorgeous, and the weather was WONDERFUL. One night Rodney said "The weather is wonderful here, we should move here". I cracked up and said "You would die living among all of the gays here". He almost died because we were in a restaurant surrounded by them. I could have cared less. They want to make out in public, I can voice my disgust in public. We enjoyed doing a little shopping, looking at art galleries, and even seeing Michael Maloney from Extreme Makeover Home Edition. To bad the food in Palm Springs is HORRIBLE (I am not kidding, every place we ate was bland, gross, and disgusting). You would think you could find ONE restaurant with 1/2 way decent food. I can see why people in California are so skinny- I would never want to eat either!!!!! We have always enjoyed our get aways to Palm Springs, and this time was no exception- but I think I will keep my home in Texas surrounded by good food, unsnooty people, and more heterosexuals per-capita!!
