So I thought I'd take a second and show all of you who are interested my truck. This is Medic 82 stationed at Woodlands Fire Dept. Station 2. Woodlands is the only fire department in the area that has Intermediates and Paramedics on their trucks, as well as the hardware and drugs to support ALS calls. Kind of cool.
So I'm gonna be a fat guy here for a second and talk about the food that's in Texas. First of all, I've found I don't really care for Texmex. It's really rather bland... I mean seriously. There's very little spice or seasoning in it. There is an odd fascination with Queso here - it's basically cheese dip with salsa. You can get it damn near everywhere. Thankfully there's a lot more than Texmex here. . See, in Alaska we have only four or five choices... Fast food, Acapulco's for Mexican food, Pizza Boys for pizza, a couple of chinese places, Froso's for Italian, and Sal's for 30 minutes sitting on the crapper (seriously, if you live in Soldotna try it... but plan on the 30 minutes immediately following to be in your bathroom... it's like clockwork.).
Here they have an Olive Garden along I-45 that's quite good, Sonic - which is pretty much an "All American" fast food place but very good. Denny's, IHOP, Waffle House, Jack in the Box (damn how I missed Jack!). They also have A&W, Dominos, more barbeque places than you can shake a rib at, and a local fast-food restaurant chain called Whataburger. I grabbed lunch there a few days ago... actually it was a pretty darn good hamburger. I have yet to try a BBQ place, but I was thinking of heading to one down the road called "Texas Roadhouse." It looked fairly good. On the other hand, I don't really wanna go out... I'll probably just order from Dominos.
So this is it for today. I need to get some laundry done so I have a clean uniform for tonight. I miss everyone really bad and can't wait to see you all again soon!
