just mish mosh

The picture at the top is the Dallas skyline during the daylight. It takes on quite a look after dark as seen to the left here. The second largest building on the skyline with the ummm ~unusual~ shape to it is Reunion Tower. As you can see...it ummm looks even more interesting after dark. So yes....everything pretty much IS bigger in Texas... LOL (oooh bad bad). The one with the interesting angles is Fountain Place. That one's a pretty one to see at dusk with the sunset reflecting off of it. The goldish looking one is called Bryan Tower. It's actually got gold reflective glass on it. The pix of Fountain Place and Bryan Tower are ones I took on our trip to the Dallas Aquarium. I found a great interactive map while looking for that picture I have at the top of the page. For those of you interested in the history of buildings and such, it's got the details and background on each.
Hubby and I had a wonderful night last night. He surprised me by calling about 20 minutes earlier than I expected and told me he was on his way home Just a nice meal out at Olive Garden and back home. I had the seafood fettucini and a sangria while he had the parmesean crusted tilapia and a frozen margarita. Poor guy had had a long day at work and I was pretty much tuckered out when we got home so we both headed off to bed as soon as we returned from supper. We were so tired infact, that my peepers didnt even stay awake long enough to see 10pm on the clock. Needless to say I was up bright and early this morning (630am....damn) and couldnt go back to sleep....now Im tired. LOL. I've read all my email, all the blogs, commented, responded, written my blog entry here and reworked the layouts on two of my areas and it isnt even 11am yet. I still have laundry to do, work my music (proof some, re-rip others) and possibly finish up 2 more of those horses. All I wanna do is sleep now though! Maybe a nice nap first....

I love the pics you added! When you said the goldish building, I thought you said the goldfish building, and I was looking for one shaped like a goldfish! I couldn't figure out which building you were talking about! LMAO

I'm glad you had a nice night with Ranger, and were able to get a full nights sleep.

Love the pics and I love the olive garden especiallly the bed:)

Thanks Tori!

LOL@ Chicago...no the only ummm ~unusual~ shaped building that looks like anything is the Reunion Building. I think in one site I'd seen while looking for the skyline it referred to it as a fiber-optic phallus...

The most interesting for me is the 5th tallest building in Dallas, Fountain Place. I love the angles on that one.

My second would be a tie between the Bryan Tower (the gold one) and the 4th tallest in town, the JP Morgan Chase Tower. That one has a hole engineered right into it.

Reunion Tower, however, just makes me want a cold shower....Maybe that's why the JPMorgan was built the way it was? ~evil grinz~

Umm that strange building looks like an extra large penis. Well, I was thinking it so I typed it!!! I love the Olive Garden...so yummy. Belated anniversary wishes to you and your hubby.

LadyStyx said...

LOL @ Deb...now ya know why I need a cold shower everytime we go into Dallas!! LOL

Debby said...

Yeah I would just make sure I attacked my hubbie if I saw that "thing" glowing in the Dallas skyline.

Thanks for the pics. I enjoy seeing the different shapes and sizes of buildings that make up the skyline of our cities. Philadelphia has an interesting skyline, too. I have lots of pics from our many trips thru there but none are digital.

Sorry I didn't comment to this before now. I'm still trying to recuperate from Monday and Tuesday. (when I feel up to it, i'll blog about it)

LadyStyx said...

Yes it does...so did NYC at one point *sigh*.

You may want to consider either scanning the pix you have (if you have a scanner) OR bring them to WalMart and see if they could put them to disc for you. I always get my prints from film cameras put to disc as well as get the copies. That way if anything happens to the hard copies I still have something to fall back on.

I hear ya on the recouping...I aint felt quite like myself the last couple days either (hense no blogs).
