Nashville was never on my list of places to visit. First of all, it's located in the bible belt, and I wasn't sure if my sacrilegious ass would spontaneously combust as we headed deeper south. Second of all, it's the home of country music, something I reflexively and irrationally abhor thanks to the celebration of ugly polyester plaid and delicious pancakes that is the Calgary Stampede.
I'm a true desk jockey: a willing corporate drone. I find comfort in the simple satisfactions that punctuate the monotony of adulthood -- like the feeling when you find a new pen, cook your instant noodles al dente, or create the perfect pivot table.

What do Setos like anyway? To be honest, not much/nothing. We are a mean bunch and we are especially harsh when it comes to each other which is why we are all Very Well-Adjusted Adults. So what do we do when we're all home for the weekend? Have a showdown, of course, involving the only thing in this rotting world that matters: Vietnamese subs AKA bánh mì.
Hello! We are finally back from our month-long sabbatical older, wiser, taller, and smarter. If you're wondering what I look like now, find an old picture of me and stretch it slightly.
