Seriously, the people in Nashville are so nice, I can't get over it. Milton, my food delivery guy, just called me to tell me they're out of bottled water, but that he'll stop in at a convenience store and buy me some on the way here. Seriously? Seriously.

Cute Animal of the Week: Pygmy Goat

From Wikipedia:
Pygmy goats are adaptable to most climates. They enjoy having items to jump on and may be able to leap onto small vehicles. They are also in need of a shed and open area accessible at all times. They also need a companion that doesn't necessarily have to be its own species. Pygmy goats should not be introduced to another species or they can be harmed by the other animal. They are prey animals and should therefore be sheltered in a predator-proof area -especially at night. Goats require fresh water at all times or they won't drink it. Pygmy goats are often affectionate if they are treated with respect they can be quite easy to look after if you train them which requires quite a bit of work.
There's never enough time.

Not cute, Nasvhille.

Slow Blogging Movement

I've been thinking a lot lately about getting rid of my Blackberry. I know, it sounds crazy, doesn't it? To disconnect from the world like that, especially now that I'm properly working in new media.

But lately, I find nearly all the emails I get are pitches, work-related, or spam. When my friends want to reach me, they call or text. Hardly any of my closest friends even have Blackberries anymore, so I can take or leave BBM.

There are only two reasons I can think of to keep a Blackberry:
1. For traveling, to avoid having to use internet cafes.
2. For blogging on the go.

Lately I've also been thinking about taking a more thoughtful, edited approach to my personal blog.

Is there such a thing as a Slow-Blogging Movement? 

I feel like I always want to take a quick photograph and post it right away without consideration for much else besides immediacy (I think it's a panic-instinct left over from my NY Post days). In turn, this blog looks really haphazard and totally lacks focus -- not that I ever intended this blog to be tidy and focused. It was always meant to be a bit all over the place.

Maybe I could take a vacation from my Blackberry and see what happens.
