Here’s what this guy just wrote in reply to my post about looking for a room to rent in Nashville: “We are seeking a FEMALE caring nanny/care giver. We do not have kids. My wife is 45 and she has breathing trouble,  has trachea and uses partial ventilator and oxygen at home. I am seeking a nice care giver […]

Ubud cafes were full of middle aged women writing books on macs. Nashville cafes are full of cute young guys making music on macs. I know where I’d rather live now.

“PUT YOUR PENCILS DOWN! PENCILS DOWN, NOW!!!” Dumbledore boomed. I almost jumped out of my plastic chair, nerves shot to sh*t. I have a problem with authority.
