Carnie Love Affair

Dogwood Girl is not here. She renewed a love affair born early, a love of Tilt-A-Whirl stomach lurches, and Van Halen Himalaya rides. She and LouLou La Loush ditched their husbands and children and ran away with the carnival. They are carnies, now. They ride the Himalaya every night. They ride like the wind.

Where I’m From. Where I’ve Been. Where I’m At.

I’m a little drunk. Ish. So, i have been thinking about my neighborhood a lot today. A friend from my old neighborhood is grappling with the whole educating-a-kid-in-intown-Atlanta-schools issue.

Five Adjectives

I’ve thought about the “what five words describe you best?” question often, but never remember to blog about it. Then I read Pioneer Woman’s post Five Adjectives and was reminded.
