So you bushhogged and you archived in Jackson, Mississippi. Which was the vocation? Which the avocation?

This place Tres Leches keeps coming up? Tell me more. I thought that was a sickly sweet kind of cake.

And The Chapel of the Black Madonna, where Patina said their vows. Does that exist in The Real World? I mean can I see it on Google Earth?

End of Bushmania. End of Bushdepression. Two sides of the same mental disturbance.

San: Neither vocation nor avocations: they were both avocados: elegant fruits. Jacksonmiss is where most of the familial Texans in exile still live (another branch is in Nashville); it's also where I graduated high school before I matriculated up Cambridge-way.

Tres Leches just seemed a very fine "pseudonym" for San Antonio; it ain't sickly sweet, just sweetly sticky.

The chapel she exists, eastside on Beethoven, run by a little tribe of Polish nuns. If that ain't the Real World, I don't know what is.
