Kentucky home

Yeah, my folks are moving to Kentucky. Mom, Dad, you're crazy gypsies. :) In honor of Kentucky, some facts:

1. Cheeseburgers were first served in Louisville.

2. Cumberland is the only waterfall in the world to regularly show a moonbow. It's near Corbin, KY.

3. A couple of sisters in Louisville created "Happy Birthday to You".

4. Pikeville leads the nation in Pepsi consumption every year.

5. A Kentuckian invented the radio.

Thank you, Kentucky. Good luck, folkies. You'll do great wherever you go, but dang it (!), I wish you'd try ATL!

Random Thoughts

Recently, I bet someone $3.00 that "clonkus" was in the dictionary. Am I really the ONLY one who uses that word? I thought for sure it was authentic American English! Argh. I'm still not really over the loss. Webster needs to get on the ball. ehem.

TI is in jail. What a punk. Can't anyone "represent" with some level of excellence?


Phooey! Who IS that girl ruining the perfect lineup? C'mon, woman! Get your face in L I N E. heh. A was a princess-- utterly beautiful. It's nice to see a couple building something really worthwhile together. That's the good stuff. Yeah, baby.

Scary, Angry Toll Man

Ok, calling all men for some insight:

I'm driving up 400 as I'm prone to do, unfortunately.

I'm heading toward the toll stop and realize I need a cashier (I'm changeless as I'm prone to be).

There are a few cars in front of me in the cashier line and I'm looking around (I'm a social driver, what can I say?).

So, I just happen to make eye contact with the dude in front of me in his side mirror. He looks so ANGRY that I'm almost scared. I look back and confirm: Yep, he's still super angry looking. I pull down my visor so I won't accidentally look again. I nickname him "Scary Angry Man".

Then, when I get to the cashier, she says, "You're good, honey. The car ahead of you paid your toll."

EH? WHY would Scary Angry Man (SAM) have paid my toll? Is hiding behind my visor because I think a man may be possessed considered FLIRTING?

Maybe it's a lesson that sometimes, expressions can be misleading.
...or maybe I shouldn't be such a social driver...

You can take a girl from the country, but... dooodedooo

Duluth Fall Festival


I think maybe this is the first scene from Hitchcock's Birds.

A genuis at work: FAIR HAIR! Mohawks, glitter, Suess-like creations, and voila! Business was booming!


There's nothing like boiled peanuts, muscadine, and sasparilla to ease one's way into a southern evening. eerrr...yeah...

Could the weather have been more perfect? Let me answer that.... No.
