Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Our New Business Mentality

I think everyone knows what Soylent [green] is made of by now. :D

I keep hearing about this Citadel portrait yet no one places it in their post, what's up with that? Was the screen shot too difficult? I guess I need to watch this episode, but the recaps from here and Island Packet are too much fun to read!

Good job as per the usual! BZ

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Letting Ourselves Down

Good night, I agree with Patricia for once. Dinner party meet cutes work. They do.

When I was in my late 20s-early 30s in Charleston we had "Supper Club" once a month on a Wednesday night. You had to be legally single, you could bring a friend but not a date, and you had to dress nicely and show up if you RSVP'd that you would. We met at various restaurants around town. The restaurants would offer a special or a couple of free hors d'oeuvres. It was started by some lawyers in town and was by invite only. It fell apart after a great four or five year run, when someone from N Chasn took over the reigns and put a freaking ad in the paper! When it was all phone trees and emails and word of mouth invites, the method was seamless and fun and a few marriages came out of the experience.

It just hit me that we were kinda the Southern Charmers of the early 1990s! We had movers and shakers, people with money and boats and beach houses, and we went on boat rides and drank a LOT and met up at houses and docks for parties ... I was the poor chick they let ride along because I had organization skills, sat on the committee for the March of Dimes Bid for Bachelors, and looked good in a bikini! LOL, hahahahaha

Re: “Populism, belonging, and inside jokes

I'm happy to say I didn't understand half of what you were writing about. Which makes sense as I tend to be right down the middle of conservative and liberal, I should only "get" half of it anyway! O.o

Oh hahahaha, you made a vegetarian laugh at something she should not find funny, i.e., eating meat ...

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: The Pain of Memory

Great recap.
These people all need to learn some basic manners and tact. O.o I know it's all for the show, but sincerely, kindness matters.
I love the HooDoo part of the episode! I grew up in Pinopolis, and in The Corner (Moncks Corner for you non-BC [Berkeley County] people) we had a HooDoo/VooDoo guy. He lived near the middle school. He had pie tins hanging from the tree in his front yard and a bottle tree, of course, ... he also sold liquor on Sundays, back during the Blue Law days. In order to be allowed to purchase said alcohol you had to know the password. The password was - you had to knock three times and say "fried chicken" three times. I know this because I, the SLED agent's daughter would go there with the Mayor's son and the Sherriff's son (the only one we were missing was the preacher's son, but he was a pussy) to purchase illegal drinks for all of us to indulge in whilst waterskiing in the Hatchery.
You gotta love the Lowcountry of SC!
