In Which I Am a Weirdo

So in my pre-Hurricane Hanna preparations I photographed every last damn thing in my home to prove to the friendly insurance adjustor that I had a lot of nice shit before the Atlantic swallowed it all.  Luckily I haven’t had to use those photos yet, but they are a fascinating study in the stuff I accumulate.  It blows my mind that when I got married nine years ago I didn’t own one single toy, and now I have maybe 3,000 plastic figurines from McDonald’s, 1,500 Pokemon cards, 60 Webkinz, etc.

My favorite picture is the one above, though, because I think it perfectly captures what a redneck I am.  If you’re going to cook up a nice White Trash meal, why not photograph it, you know?  That’s peach tea in the Ole Miss cup, BTW.

    But you’re eating off a plate, and using utensils! You’re too fancy for redneckdom.

  8. myrtlebeachbum Says:

    That’s right, Dotty, that’s HOMEMADE mac&cheese. So good. And Trixie, peach tea is just sweet tea (mmmmmmm) with peach flavoring.

    Thank you, Nadarine. I got all fancy that night b/c the UT/UCLA game was on, but even this meal didn’t bring the Vols the mojo they needed.

    also, the vegetables on this plate are just as they should be: smaller portion than anything else. just my style.
