In a Car

Just spend five or so days in a car, traveling through parts of the Bible Belt and hanging round in Arkansas. I think this counts as the South, maybe. Either way, I saw a lot of flat, empty land, which had its own charm to be honest, ate some catfish, and met a lot of people, all of whom were pretty nice. I was later told that the majority were well armed, thanks to a conceal and carry law. I had no idea.

It was a trip of bad health care, guns, and buffets.

Oh, and I picked peaches.

(I may have also eaten a Twinkie, which I suspect will be the sustenance that roaches live off when the world goes to complete shit.)

Is this like Fargo country? I lose track. Nick Cave's God is in the House was written in response to a honeymoon through such terrain as well, if I remember rightly.

I didn't even know you had a girlfriend. One of these days we need to play catch-up in email or something...

you'll probably want to know about the circus then, too.
