  1. Toured 16 potential new office spaces for the company that employs me
  2. Consumed a taco that contained both bacon and fried chicken
  3. Imbibed a margarita on Dirty Sixth Street (okay two margaritas)
  4. Ran nine miles along the Colorado River, around the Texas State Capitol building and through the University of Texas campus (Hook 'em Horns!)
  5. Saw more than one million bats
  6. Went to a gay bar (my first ever in Texas)
  7. Purchased a razor at 7-Eleven
  8. Stayed in a grand old hotel where future President Lyndon Baines Johnson and his wife had their first date (oh, and the hotel's haunted)
  9. Had orgasmic brisket at a restaurant called Lamberts
  10. Sweated through my clothes whilst walking down the street
  11. Drank multiple Topo Chicos
  12. Ate a Jimmy John's sandwich in bed while texting and watching the US Open
