New York, New York, you're a hell of a town

Hi, y'all. As most of you know, I'm relocating from NYC to the deep south, and this whole tearing-up-of-the-urban-roots is taking place in about a week. A week!

Holy SHIT!!!

I have been so busy wrapping up my freelance job, packing up my crap (sweaters and snow boots going in storage at mom's, kick ass!) and drinking heavily that I have hardly had a minute to stop and think about what I'm really doing.

I will probably start a new blog once I'm settled with lots of funny (sad? pointless? retarded?) anecdotes about what it's like being a transplanted NY girl living in the wilds of southern Louisiana.

What should I call it? I need help, you guys. Give me some ideas for titles.

Anyway, as I was waiting in line at Starbucks this morning, and a girl with a headset walked up and down the line of itchy, undercaffeinated city folk taking drink orders, I thought, goddamn, I am so not gonna miss this. Really, I'm not. I have told my boyfriend repeatedly that the drive-thru Starbucks alone is worth the move to Baton Rouge, and I meant it.

I will miss a lot of things about my beloved city, though. I won't lie. I just can't think of them right now. Let me get through this Venti iced coffee and I'll blog more about that later.

So...the adventure continues...stay with me, folks. This is just the beginning...

New blog title: Southern Comfort

Hey, you might could get corporate sponsorship, just like them NASCAR racers!

I'm Scooter, but I might be a troll. said...

Fried Oreos and Fertile Fields. That's a good title.

Just say mean things about socialists and you'll be fine.

Welcome to the south, baby! I'm so excited for you. Hope you will really like it. I've never been to Baton Rouge but did visit New Orleans once for Mardi Gras. Unfortunately the only thing I remember from the experience was barfing up coffee and beignets in an ally somewhere in the French Quarter, but it looked like I had fun in the pictures from that trip.

How about calling your blog Sex in the Humidity?

You should ask Cajun Boy in the City since you two seem to be swapping roles!

I live in LA... Lower Alabama so I will like to see what you say about living down here in the deep south.

Things to remember down yonder:
1. Everything's better with butter.
2. If it ain't fried, it ain't done yet.
3. Sweet tea is a legal high.
4. Every day is a bad hair day.

Yeeeeehaaawww! :)
