“The friendliest people and the prettiest women you’ve ever seen”

I had nothing short of a goddam blast in Austin—four or five days hanging out with a variety of terrific people, and enough of a good time that I’m wondering how much longer I’m going to last in San Francisco. I still love a lot of things here, no doubt about that, but Austin completely whips S.F.’s ass on a couple of crucial fronts. Mainly, the folks there are so welcoming and unpompous that it was easy to drop my own bullshit—all those impulses honed by spending too much time around hipsters and the vagrant, shaky egos on the Internet. Anyway, right now I’m caught between catching up on my work and falling fast asleep at my desk—I’ll have to write more later.

    Yeah. I know exactly what you mean. My home is only about 40 miles from Austin; I visit often, but I get totally wiped-out from visiting friends and enjoying excellent Tex-Mex, excellent music, and excellent friends there. I end up having to drag my ass out 290 to get home and it takes me a day or two to recover. Truth is, if it weren’t for all of the above in Austin — friends, food, music, attitude, politics, family — I would be living in Marfa or Fort Davis, instead.
