Memphis, day two

Been here two days and I've seen one other Asian. Caught him on Beale St. He was wearing a pink shirt and seemed pulled together in that metrosexual style. Way to represent bud!

So far, nothing but really fabulous fatty food. Biscuits and gravy for breakfast, BBQ for lunch, dinner on Beale. I might have to pretend I'm pregnant this summer.

Walkin in Memphis

Put on my blue suede shoes and I boarded a plane
Touchdown in the land of the delta blues in the middle of a pouring rain...

You know the song. It's a little something like that.

I arrived in Memphis today with Turnipseed. We're going to rule this badass town. The air's real thick here. You know, like a sauna. Lord help us.

Our hotel's pretty cool. An old, beautiful art deco building four blocks away from Beale Street and overlooking the Mississippi. To celebrate our arrival and the next few weeks here, we went to see 1408. So if I call you in the middle of the night all freaked out, you know why. There's gotta be ghosts around here somewhere.

It wouldn't be a day in the South if we didn't O.D. a little on the soul food. Today we shared fried dill pickles, hush puppies, cornbread with super yummy honey butter, and chicken fried chicken over white mac and cheese. You are jealous, and I'm in trouble.

One day down, and no sign of any other Asians.

The Return of Friendship


You all deserve better. Friendship's been a little lacking lately, but I feel a resurgence. My iweb blog was fun for a minute, but this blog has been endless amounts of fun. Worldwidejag isn't going anywhere, but Old School Friendship Night is officially back.

And so, to kick off our return, let's do what we do best. Bring on the pictures!

Last Saturday we had a Mega-Summer-Kick off-Bash at Jeffrey's. Friends from all over came to join us, and it was a night of drinking, laughs, dancing, and more drinking. I think it's great when several different worlds collide.

The CoHosts
Jeff and I and I don't know how many Jager shots later...

Killing the Pinata
Killing the pinata filled with 99 cent store goodies such as candy, scrunchies, condoms, lube, and thongs.

More fun can be seen on my flickr

And if you want to see even more fun, Lorelei and Ian's pics are posted in our flickr group and Jeffrey's are on snapfish. Find one of us and we'll let you share in the crazy.

I can't even tell you how much fun that weekend was. Partly because the insanity lingered until Wednesday morning. Mostly because some of my favorite people were there.
