October 2010

It might be a bit of a generalisation, but it seems that early American settlers followed a fairly generic formula when it came to naming their new settlements. Driving through Virginia in particular, it seems that every second town is a burg, with Blacksburg, Gettysburg, and Fredericksburg coming and going on the highway markers. After a trip to two of the great villes of Tennessee, it seemed logical to turn my attention a couple of the more famous villes east of the Great Smokey Mountains, in particular Asheville, NC and Charlottesville VA.

Everyone has people they know of, but don’t really know. These people are the less-than-acquaintances. You’ve possibly been introduced, but will never really learn their name. I have many of these relationships, thanks to my almost complete first year at university. (AHH) I realize now that I have given each of them a nickname in order to remember them. Now, instead of remembering their name, I can only remember the nickname.


'cause I'm a redneck woman
I ain't no high class broad
I'm just a product of my raising
I say, 'hey ya'll' and 'yee-haw'
- Gretchen Wilson

Although it was definitely on the list, it wasn’t until a couple of the other exchange students got the ball rolling that I finally got my head around a weekend jaunt to Nashville. And I’m glad I did – nothing quite beats it and all its cowboy kitsch.

Game day

7 Oct

How can you tell that God is a Tar heel? Because he painted the sky Carolina Blue.

It's truisms like this that make it hard not to love the patriotism, pageant and general excess that make College football so damn good. A couple of Saturdays ago was the first home game of the season which, given the controversy surrounding the team this year, was a must see event.


After a long three month summer break, I'd forgotten how fast-paced classes in the quarter system are. Only a week and a half deep with classes and I've got a series of midterm exams coming up in a couple of weeks as well as a few homework assignments that I've already submitted.
