Hi, Anna-Liza here.
I just recently discovered that Marin, Lyda and I have all lived in Texas at various points in our lives. Well, I already know about me and Lyda–we met each other at the University of Houston. I found out about the Marin-Texas connection here. Marin and I even lived in the same area (but at different times).
So, let’s see, we all are book fiends, we’re all serious fiber addicts, we all have had … colorful … romantic histories. (And when I say romantic, I mean sexual). We all love Good Omens, good theater, and Monty Python. We’re all geeks.
So what is it, something in the water? I mean, none of us are precisely what people think of when they’re thinking “women from Texas”, but we are damn near separated-at-birth status.
I love Texas, bless its big ol’ goofy heart! Anyplace that can produce Molly Ivins, Janis Joplin, Gene Roddenberry, Tommy Tune and Ann Richards has some serious good mojo working for it. Then again, Texas also produced Bonnie & Clyde and George W. Bush (but not his father).
Oh, one other thing we have in common–none of us live in Texas anymore.
