Texas hosted a St. Paddy’s Day party complete with bagpipers, green beer and Big Tex in a kilt. At least we think it was Big Tex – we might have imbibed a wee bit much o’ the green beer.
Flush with the success of that, we hosted a beach party for spring break. It was attended by Big Tex, Bearries, and the crew of Voyager. Again, we blame the brew for the hallucinations.
And in the ongoing Chat Box – we have discussed missing people, war and the lyrics to odd sixties songs. Once again, we blame the drugs.Interregional Events
Texas opened its borders to the friendly nations of 10000 Islands for the 10KI Getting’ to Know Our Allies Tour, March 18 - 20. Texas held a Lone Star Stock Show & Rodeo, where the beer never stopped flowing, chaps were in fashion, and a lasso was your only means of getting yourself a cowboy.
Recently, Texas was invited to Liberty Alliance for a meet and greet. We brought over truck loads of Texas Beer, Texas BBQ, and our world renowned Texas Breakfast. Both Texas and Liberty Alliance are busy losing the pounds we gained over the weekend.Texas Department of Space Affairs
The Texas Space agency is proud to announce a new uniform. All departments except for security are expected to fully transition to the new uniform by June 09, 2010. The two piece uniform is designed to be more user friendly with division colors predominantly displayed on the shoulders and the rank insignia placed over the left collarbone.Role Play
In the Recreation Center, Trecdom and CHW are finally fulfilling their desire to nuke the heck out of each other in role play. Darned if we know what’s going on. We just wish we had the arms contracts for both countries. We also think recreational stimulants might be involved.
Statement from the Commanding General of the Trecdom Military.
