Houston, Texas or Jacksonville, Florida?

I’ve been in the Houston area for two weeks. I’ve noticed a few differences between it and Jacksonville.

  • Jack in the Box. They serve breakfast all day long. Can you hear me now, McDonalds?
  • Fry’s Electronics. Best Buy, Radio Shack, and HH Gregg dumped into a Costco building with Walmart prices (not to mention it looks like the International Space Station inside. Seriously.)
  • More comics stores AND more game stores.
  • It’s cooler. The temperature, I mean. Just a little bit.
  • They take hurricanes seriously. Stop being apathetic, Jacksonville.
  • Guns. Lots of ’em.
  • A renaissance fair that isn’t over a hundred miles away. And it runs for eight weekends!
  • My girlfriend lives in the Houston area. Schwing!
  • I ALSO live here now! What can I say? I’m biased.
