Other amusing things from Texas so far:
There are hooters, twin peaks (same thing as hooters) and bone daddy's (worse than hooters) every block. And they are considered family friendly restaurants.
Evangelical christians make up approximately 1/3 of the radio stations here, and 1/6 of the TV stations.
Cattle drives still take place in the middle of the street. (okay, just downtown Fort Worth at the stockyards, which are pretty awesome.)
Ribs = amazing!!
Drivers seem fairly laid back and so it takes a while for people to go when the light turns green.
They sell key limes at the grocery store. Maybe since we share the gulf they are easy to get?
There are like, 5 million power companies here and you can pick and choose what you want.
Ed hardy is apparently the state sponsor of clothes. I have literally seen their stuff in just about every single store. Also, the girl in front of us in church (by girl i mean 12-14 year old) was doodling his name on a notepad during sacrament meeting. I guess i just don't get it.
The lower the lakes get, the more our water starts to taste like fish.
