I went to Richmond, Charleston, Nashville and Charlotte for reading week with a friend.  America is amazing even if the accents were no where near as heavy as I expected.  I really wish I'd gone on that exchange to Chapel Hill - REGRETS, I HAS THEM.

* Waffle House is like if Denny's and Ihop had a retarded love child with high blood pressure.  That is not to say it wasn't amazing.  I researched it thoroughly certain fanfictions and freaked Chrissy out by ordering all confident-like.  

*What is this food, grits?  I had it at three different places and i swear to god it was different each time.  Fuck you,, grits.  you are the reason we came here.

*Certain people need to stop having creepy feelings about the civil war, srsly.  I don't want to be educated, kthx 

*Charlotte Airport has a shop that sells vibrators.  I am amazed.

*Nashville's airport is the nicest I have ever slept in; anyone who goes to the Starbucks in the domestic terminal - do not sit on the couch.  I'm pretty sure I drooled all over it.

On my way home now.  I have succumbed to the pressure and downloaded Merlin.  Chrissy is not impressed, but then she downloaded the new 90210 for the way home so she can't talk.

Of course you go to Charlotte when I'm not there to take you out to lunch. :(

I'll go back - or go to Winnipeg and drag you to the Louis Riel exhibits I want to go to.

Basically, all I remember of Charlotte is a sketchy bar and the motel toilet. And possibly a line of shots.

That sounds just like Charlotte.

I'm probably moving out of Winnipeg in April or May, and I'm hopefully moving to Korea. So you can visit me there!

Oh good lord, I now have the biggest crush on Arthur. It's because he's a jerk, I can't help myself.

Srsly, it makes JRod look like people who are in touch with their feelings.

I love the South. When we were in North Carolina in August, it was like 40C degrees and my mom said, "No wonder the white people had slaves, it's too hot to work." Oh mom.

Hah, my mom always said that if she lived there back then she would have a little boy-slave to follow her around and rub her shoulders. And she sounded kinda longing.

*drive by comment by random fan* I consistently mourn the fact that the nearest Waffle House is 75 miles away from me in Pennsylvania. Why no Waffle House nyc?? WHY.

Because obv Waffle House is to cool for nyc - or the other way around, you know. I only went once, even though the motel was right across the street. My arteries couldn't handle anymore. But now I am craving it *so* *badly*
