I'm coming, Savannah

OH you guys - I'm so excited! R. and I are going to Savannah, Georgia in exactly a month. He got the tickets this week. I have always wanted to go to Savannah, ever since I read (then saw the movie) Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Have you guys read that book? No? Go read it!

I am envisioning big hats, iced tea, wraparound porches, magnolia trees, peaches (?), and parasols. Am I close? I've never been. If you aren't from Texas, you probably think that's odd. I know my New England friends can just take a walk outside and oh! Look at that, I'm in a different state. Totally not like that here. Back when the U.S. invaded Iraq and was all pissed off at France, frat guys used to wear these moronic shirts that said "Texas is bigger than France!!" Which is...true. We are Gigantor. Territory-demarcation-wise, I mean.

So I live in the south but not The South, like antebellum south. I can hardly wait to go see it.

One of the best books ever!

I hope Savannah is everything you dreamed of -- I'm building Paula Dean into my Savannah trip too. It's fitting.
