Wahoo... I am in Biloxi

Well, after ending my time in Starkville on Thursday, I had another pretty relaxing weekend. I drove to Auburn on Thursday night, and saw a few friends. Friday, i took care of a bunch of errands during the day.
Friday evening a friend of mine took off to Montgomery to visit the capri theatre to see Fact-ot-um, a movie about Charlse Bukowski. It was pretty good. In proper Bukowski fashion, we snuck a bottle of Jim Beam into the Theatre.
We hit the 1028 club for a ying ling then headed over to El Ray's which i would totally recomend. We had a black bean buritto, and a portabello mushroom quesodilla.
I still have not yet learned to spell.

Anyway, i spent the rest of the weekend in Auburn helping my mom stuff envelopes and watching football.

I left for biloxi at 4:50 this morning. I arrived here at 9:15. Not a bad drive. It was really nice to see the sunrise behind me.

So now the adventure in biloxi begins!!!

The Slap

Northern lights
this is beautiful

I love City Bagel

I love city bagel here in Starkville. They have saved me in these last few weeks with out a kitchen. It is the only place to eat in starkville mississippi that is affordable and not greasy. I love it.
i ate every meal there yesterday, and probably will again. yesterday i had crawfish quiche. How awesome is that. It was delicious and just spicey enought.
They have these great energy bagels that are made with whole wheat, and have raisins, molasses, apples, and walnuts in them. All of those good things in one bagle. mmmm. and their coffee is good too. And their soup. I love city bagel. THey are saving my life, or atleast my health right now!

Back in Starkville - being nomadic

I am back in Starkville. That trip was very energizing. It is incredible to see community members take the planning of their homes into their own hands. I met a group of amazing people too.

I got to see the new parsons building
it was a design build program. I will write more about it later, but i can tell you that this is where i will be doing my laundry when i finally get down to the coast.

So now to the being nomadic. I am refering to it like that because when i think of being homeless it kind of makes me a bit sad. I am not going to be able to move to the coast for 2-3 more weeks. ahh.... my lease ran up at the end of September and I have been going all over Mississippi since then. I went to picayune for 3 days and biloxi for 3 days. This weekend I will be leaving for laurel mississippi, which is right north of hattiesburg. I will be going back to auburn on tuesday I think, and taking a few days off. then I will be coming back to starkville to work for a week, just to wrap things up, and i will be heading out to the coast after I get all of that done.
so, really, I cannot wait to get down there but this living on peoples couches is an adventure.

Ha ....
oh, and news update, i will be at Pasaquan on November 4th selling my tshirts. I am pretty excited.. Jake Fussell and Precious Bryant will be playing, and i have always wanted to see Pasaquan, the home of St. EOM.

another thing:
I finally got to meet Felder Rushing and Dr. Dirt. They are awesome! I want a Garden again!!!!! I am gonna take a trip up to Jackson to play in Dirt's garden soon I hope.
Well... That is all for now.
I will for sure write more soon.

Picayune Mississippi is where i am at

I am in Picayune Mississippi right now and i am using prepositions at the end of my subject lines today. oh well. i guess it just be that way sometimes.

We are putting on a workshop right now in picayune. It is pretty neat seeing all of these community members learning about design and taking a proactive interest in their community.

It is also pretty fun cause i have my own hotel room. This is only the second time in my life to have my own room. Sweet. (the first was when my car broke down in hattiesburg)

So...I am going to the Picayune Arboritum with students from LSU(sorry we kicked your butt a few weeks ago, and how could you let MSU score on you... come on. i guess we did the same with Buffalow.)

alright, so my comments are scattered like my brain and an order of waffle house hashbrowns .
