My longtime BFF and her family moved to [ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME] Nashville, Tennessee this week; her husband is doing post-doc work at Vanderbilt, which is awesome, but it's in Nashville, which is basically the poopier side of awesome. Oh, I'm down with visiting Tennessee (Dollywood, here I come!), but it's more expensive to get there than if she lived in, say, Seattle. Right next door to me.
I was lucky enough to have some time to say goodbye last Sunday, and spend a little time with her wee one, The Nogg (nicknamed for her ginormous, carrot-y noggin). I made a birthday cookie cupcake for her first birthday, which was on New Year's Eve, but better late than never.
The stupid crappy snow cut our visit short, but it was still nice to see Kim and The Nogg before they left. I miss them already, and think they've been gone long enough, thank you very much.
I hope Tennessee is ready for Snotty McSnotterson, because I plan on tearing that place up. Did you know that there are more churches there than actual people? At least that's what I heard (I may be exaggerating). I'm excited to hear Kim's stories about her foray into the religious underbelly of Nashville--it's not really an underbelly, more of an above-board, standardized way of life you must conform to, which I understand. She'd better not come back with big hair and fake boobs, although I think that's a Texas thing, and not Tennessee. Booo, Texass.
