    I think I finally found a way to get rich. Yep, I’m going to hang around down at the Little League field and hope to get hit by an errant baseball.

  • kazek, kelly.jpg It's so hot, Jersey Shore cast accidentally got real tans

    Here in the South, the birthplace of heat rash, we’ve always peppered our conversations with commentary on the weather but we can’t leave it at that. No, it’s at times like these that Southern one-upmanship becomes a true art form.

  • kazek, kelly.jpg Think writing is glamorous? Come see ...

    Don’t hate me because I’m glamorous. I can understand why my life as a not-so-highly paid journalist and single mom may seem glitzy on the surface but this work is hard, people.

  • Kelly.jpg Some dogs sense calamity; Lucy the beagle senses baths

  • kazek, kelly.jpg In Athens, Ala., grease is the word ...

    I think the festival is a great idea. On that day, we can unabashedly show our love for all things Southern, as well as all things Greek.
