Charlottesville On My Mind

My excuse for lack of comment on the burning issues of the day? Um, I’m in Virginia, where there are… no newspapers? No computers? Distracting swarms of giant killer bees? I don’t suppose any of those seem that convincing. UVa is very pleasant, though. Apparently Edgar Allen Poe once moped here.

I think that this is my favorite story of the week.

(Off now for some southern hospitality. I am assuming that someone around here will know how to make a mint julep.)

    You’re all wrong. Kentucky, Kentucky, Kentucky. Home of bourbon and a certain derby involving fast horses with silly names.

    MS or LA, mayhaps. not SC.

    Go to South Carolina and you should be drinking juleps with impunity.

    Edgar Allen Poe on a moped! It’s times like these that make we wish I had Photoshop on my work computer — and a half-hour to waste on cropping Poe onto a Vespa.

    Did I say waste? I meant to say … well, yeah: waste.

    I think you’re probably right, anonymous commenter. Dammit! How far must I travel before I can drink mint juleps with impunity?

    Back in Eugene next Monday, other things being equal.

    actually, i don’t think mint juleps are a very virginia thing to drink. VA isn’t deep enough south…but enjoy, nonetheless!

    Come back soon, Olly…I’m going to 6th Street without my favorite English guardian 🙂

    In Ole Virginny? Hell yes they will.
