miscellany monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1. I am at work on Memorial Day and I work for the state. How about that for supporting our troops?! :) I'm okay with it, I guess. We do get an extra day around Christmas to make up for it... I will enjoy that when December rolls around. There has been word that we might be able to leave early today, but we haven't gotten the news from the president of the college yet. Cross your fingers for me! I would love to be by the pool, BBQing it with the rest of them.

2. Speaking of Memorial Day.... this particular weekend here at the beach is Bike Fest weekend. There is an insane amount of bikers (and their unruly behavior) cluttering up our streets. I love living by the ocean, but sometimes I really hate the tourism of it all. It brings in so many people & there isn't anywhere to put them all! I have seen nearly five people wreck this weekend by bikers weaving in and out of traffic.

3. Speaking of tourists... I will be glad to play the part of one next weekend in Charleston. :) We are going down next Saturday to see Zac Brown Band and I am so excited I can barely stand it!! I have been wanting to see them FOREVER and they are finally nearby. HOORAH!

4. Speaking of Charleston... I love the historic feel of the city... with the fabulous cobble stone streets and markets. The book I am reading, South of Broad, is set in Charleston in the 50's and 60's... and I love reading about the southern-ness of it all.

5. Speaking of Southern... I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned how southern or country my accent is... If I ever get up the nerve to "vlog" one day... you might see for yourself. I'm not really sure where it came from because no one in my family talks the way that I do. It is quite hysterical to hear me and my boyfriend from Boston carry on conversation. But, that's one of the things I love about us! ;P


  1. it's great to have you! i love all of your "speaking of's" .... it's so cool to see how our brains work like that. : ) i must admit, charleston is pretty pretty! i should enjoy it more than i do! so sorry you have to work today - that is ironic! but, yay for the extra day at christmastime!

  2. Working Memorial Day is a fair exchange for time off at xmas. My old job we used to work Columbus Day in exchance for Black Friday - sounds fair to me!
