You know you're in Austin when...

  1. You own both formal and informal tie-dye
  2. Your summer shoes are your Birks, and your winter shoes are your Birks...with socks.
  3. The food at the company holiday party is all vegan, organic, soy free, wheat free, dairy free…
  4. You drive on Airport freeway for an hour before you realize that you are never going to get to the airport
  5. Your next-door neighbor has polka dots painted on their lawn.
  6. The mayoral candidate wears a silk thong, leather bra, and really needs to shave.
  7. The streets and freeways all have more than one name.
  8. You know that anyone wearing pants in November is just visiting from Ohio.
  9. You keep a list of companies to boycott
  10. Your hairdresser is straight, your plumber is gay, the woman who delivers your mail is straight and your Mary Kay lady is a guy in drag.

From the Mix 94.7 Happy Hour show.

And you can't wait for Christmas because you now have an excuse to eat tamales for breakfast.

#3 is pretty weak. not only would that piss me off if it were true, but there were more veggies/vegans where i grew up (chicago) than there are here. this IS still texas, remember..

everything else is cool tho!

there are definitely not more vegetarians in Chicago then Austin, we still may be in Texas, but Austin is in it's own little world.
