"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

Question: What did Texas in Africa do on this lovely, humid evening in scenic Austin, Texas?

If you guessed that she was lured out under false pretenses, dressed in a muu-muu and given advice on avoiding crow's feet and proper moisturization along with three other friends who also just turned thirty, and then taken to dinner at Luby's (still in the muu-muu), then congratulations. Clearly you were in on the plot.

(I haven't been out in public dressed that ridiculously since a certain ritual at the end of pledging. Of course, then we were "part of a group of friends" who were "playing a game." Because of course all Baylor girls like to dance around the fountain at Taco Cabana at 3am while wearing spandex and blue eye shadow.)

(We were one of the first classes after hazing became illegal in Texas.)

Yes, there are pictures (of both events). No, they will not see the light of day, and certainly not the lights of this blog. And yes, I enjoyed my LuAnn plate very much, thanks for asking.

Also, if you're in need of a royal blue (with brightly colored flowers) housedress, have I got a bargain for you.
