This morning I was driving the Volkswagen to work, as I do 1-2 time per week, and was reminded of Saturday’s drive I took southwest of Franklin on some beautiful backroads through Leiper’s Fork. The twisty roads & open windows made a necessary trip very enjoyable.
I saw many homes. Some were large. Some were beautiful. Some were large and beautiful. Later I downloaded a .kmz file mapping out the celebrity owners of these homes. I didn’t recognize many of the names. In fact there were probably more names I recognized closer to our home.
I can’t recommend stopping in Leiper’s Fork but the drive to it is great.
At my destination, the landfill, a gentlemen approached me and my car. He has a ‘09 TDI and had only good things to say about the first 50k he has put on it. He took a look at mine, pointed out the differences, and reassured me of our choice.
It’s like a golf ball on the edge of a hole. *blow*
A Facebook friend shared a wonderful article about Neko Case being back in the studio. She is being followed throughout the album creating process and I believe this is the second update.
The problem with relying on a service like Rdio is that I listen to a lot of different music and forget about some treasures like Neko. This song, Thrice All American, is a love song to Tacoma, Washington that makes me swoon.
I can’t mention Neko without crying about her canceling a Nashville show a few years back that we had perfect tickets for.
I took evasive action this morning when my on-ramp lane was going to take me into a sea of stopped traffic. Google Maps told me it was jammed for at least two exists. I quickly found an alternate route north I had never taken before. 40 minutes later I pulled into the parking garage and thought the traffic may have not been that bad.
A woman sighed in the elevator a woman and asked if I had been caught in the traffic. I said I avoided it and asked her how long it took her to drive in.
“One and a half hours.”
Commuting during spring break is like a dream.
I finally had Jamaica Way today. Curried goat, yellow ride, sweet potatoes & pineapple. The spicy sauce was much better than the oxtail sauce I tried.
The desire to create a Tumblr of Nashville locations in ABC’s Nashville goes stronger with every episode I watch.
Today I drove to I Dream of Weenie for “hand crafted chorizo from Porter Road Butcher topped with jicama-tomatillo slaw, sour cream and avocado slices” and pumpkin chili. The sweet slaw, creamy avocado, & spicy meat was a great combination. The chili had 3 types of beans, bell peppers, and some fake ground “meat” for vegan friendliness. The pumpkin and spices barely came through but it was a very satisfying bowl.
