Read Vile’s thesis from grad school when I woke up. Was an interesting read, not least for all the typos! *giggle* No, seriously, it was! Amusing too though, as some of the theory he touched upon I would have then encountered several years later at university, made me feel young. Mused over it for quite some time, (knew Bill would want a review).

Emerged from the bedroom to find Bill playing on the pooter with his head phones on. Snuck up behind him and jabbed him in the ribs! Muahahaha!

Got taken to Fat Matt’s Rib Shack for lunch today. Not a good place to go if one is a vegetarian, not that I am anymore, but it’s certainly a carnivore’s delight. Couldn’t actually face the ribs, but luckily, I now happily devour poor defenceless little chickens and the bbq-ed variety there was great. I have no idea what Bill had to eat though but it looked disgusting. Some kind of horrid stew thing? *shudder*

Sat facing Bill when I suddenly noticed how he almost had no pupils! His eyes were just really vibrant blue disks. Scary.

Kati and Bill bickered about what to do next, with Bill adamant that he did NOT want to go ice skating. *giggle*

After feasting we clambered back into the car and I was amused that the decision to show me some of the nicer parts of Atlanta meant driving around the city with Bill and Kati pointing out various buildings and things. You just wouldn’t really do that in England, in fact I don’t think you could drive around a city so easily! Was surprised to see that there didn’t appear to be any buses on the roads either. Weird.

Ended up at Virginia Highlands and had a wander around some of the shops there.

Seems that in Georgia you can’t buy alcohol on Sundays so that meant we had to stock up in advance and a trip to the supermarket was called for. Ahh, that was fun. Got stuck in a quality stressed couple moment!

Got back to the house and Loretta was being even more boisterous than usual, watched poor Quince get mauled and the room destroyed until Kati shook the penny jar at her and crated her! Discovered Loretta had stolen, gnawed and hidden some of my stuff behind their bed. Didn’t really mind too much, Loretta’s too much like a hyperactive toddler to get too annoyed with her. Very good job she’s cute.

Curled up on the sofa with Quince and watched Sixth Sense with Bill in the evening. Odd moment when Vile when he was sat next to me on the sofa, turned around and starting talking about the difference in our ages. Sat out late on the porch, drinking, listening to the rain and talking.

    – I was eating Brunswick Stew, sorta a BBQ chowder(yummy!)
    – You can’t buy beer etc from shops but you can go to bars, buy and drink it there, As long as the bars serve food, clubs like the StarBar are not allowed to open. Bible Belt law.
    – You forgot the nice little argument that Kati and I had over grocery shopping. We almost broke up several previous times on shopping trips. Sorry you had to see that. :\
    – We did a lot of drinking but I don’t think I managed to get truly drunk during that entire week…
    – Not many buses run on the weekends as they are mostly for work commute of those who don’t have cars. Not saying that’s a good thing
