i love you, dallas

I love my fair city. It wasn't until I lived in London for a year that I realized how special Dallas was. If you're not from Dallas (or only visited for a day), you probably have no idea what I'm talking about. Because Dallas just isn't known for being spectacular. But the last decade has brought many spendid things to my city, adding to some already-fantastic bits of culture. I'd like to thank D Magazine for arousing my lust for Dallas today. I just completed the magazine's Best Things in Dallas poll, where they've randomly paired the best things about Dallas against each other (like the Nasher Sculpture Center vs. Snuffer's cheddar fries or The Arts District vs. The State Fair of Texas) and force indecisive residents like me into picking one over the other. Voting ends in a couple of weeks. I encourage all my Dallas buddies (past and present) to vote!

I love you, Dallas. Thanks for making me feel so at home.
