Shallow Thoughts

King St., Charleston, S.C.
  • I buy the occasional powerball ticket but never remember to check it. Never. I simply buy a day or two of fantasy. I assume that if I really win something I'll read a headline in the P & C saying, "King St. Convenience Store Sells Winning Ticket" and I'll hope to find it crumpled up in the bottom of my backpack.
  • Someone landed on my blog after googling "elderly women to date". Sad.
  • Someone landed on my blog after googling "parks in Afghanistan." Amazing. I walked through parks in Kabul many years ago. 
  • True shallow confessions - I watch Tosh.0. He can be so awful with a happy smile.
  • Isn't it amazing how people believe your entire job consists of the one tiny project that relates to them? Sorry caller. I know my tone was icy. 
  • I went to bed perfectly happy and woke up wanting a black trench coat.  How do these things happen? 
  • The end of tomato season is scaring me. 
  • I need some of Chef Nico Romo's curried crab soup soon. Mmmmm.
  • Am I the only one that finds the Charleston Farmer's Market claustrophobic? There is an entire park available. Can't we move the stalls back a few feet so people can actually walk? Huh, huh, huh? 
  • It's already dark too early to take pictures on my evening walkabout so you get the leftover weekend shots. I wouldn't advise climbing over this gate on King St.  
  •  G'night kids.

I hear you on the Farmers Market! I don't go for that very reason! We took my dog a while back and it was so so bad.
That gate is intense, reminds me of the inside of a sharks mouth!

Laura - You can't even walk without tripping on strollers and dogs! I don't get the reason for it. Does that make people feel like it is popular and crowded? It takes forever to order anything to eat and impossible to find a place to sit. I sneak in to the back of a stall and buy veggies and escape. It's too bad, isn't it? I used to look forward to going to market.

I am watching Tosh as I type this. I have to wait until my wife and son go upstairs. She can't stand him, and I am afraid of what he will repeat if he watches.

Charlestonjoan said...

Les - Hahah! I know. It really is awful. My brother got me hooked when he was visiting so I hold him responsible.

I had to look up Tosh dot O. (Is it O as in "oh" or zero?) Anyway, I liked him. He's warped....my kind of guy. ;)


Charlestonjoan said...

brattcat - that is because you are an upstanding citizen. I shouldn't know who he is either.

lowandslow - don't tell your wife I introduced you to him! He is warped. It is Tosh point Oh.

I like warped but doubt I get Us'ian (current) shows DownUnder. This list made me giggle.

Sleep well, my friend.
