19 January 2009

We all know the well-worn phrases “Everything’s bigger in Texas” …along with “Miss Texas, the new Miss America…” and “President George W. Bush, from the great state of Texas…”.

Faux Socialites© , with this in mind, we can count on The Black Tie and Boots Ball being BIG. Larger than life. More fun than a bag of rattlesnakes…

Jessica the PA slaps The Faux Socialite© to arrest hysteria and corny phrases. The Faux Socialite© thanks Jessica the PA profusely. Jessica the PA is sent out for Kombucha.*

The Texas State Society is holding The Black Tie and Boots Inaugural Ball at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center.
