Jebus Mews: Princess Leia of Alderaan

About 18 years ago Princess Leia of Alderaan woke up and found herself in our Universe. She remembers her ship passing by an undocumented nebula and a worm hole opened. Her ship got sucked through and hit rough turbulence. She can’t quite remember anything before landing in New Jersey in a country called the United States.

It was very weird at first but being the adventure Princess that she is, she got over it. She can’t quite figure how her feet turned to paws. It was like she was in an alternate reality. On this thing called TV, she saw herself in human form in a documentary about her world by LucasFilms. “Okay,” She thought. “WTF?” Continue reading

Sweet Savannah, GA

These Yankees have been charmed by sweet Savannah. There’s so much history buried and thriving in that city. Southern hospitality gives it that extra special something. Food is amazing. The preservationists worked hard at keeping their history intact and it shows. That’s what Victor and I loved.

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil & Bonaventure Cemetery

This is the reason why we flew to Savannah – Bonaventure Cemetery.

We learned cemetery enthusiasts have a name – taphophiles.

Originally we planned on taking a cab to the cemetery so we could take our time and take pictures but we decided a tour would be less headache. We booked a tour with Dash Tours. We had the pleasure of meeting Don Teuton, a 5th generation Savannahian, future resident at the cemetery and a stickler for history. If you have a question about Savannah and it’s inhabitants or history, then he’s the guy to go to. He was also friends with Danny Hansford, a man who met an unfortunate end that was documented in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. I have to read the book. I tried watching the movie but it was too slow for me. But the book cover photo of bird girl. She’s the reason why I’ve been wanting to visit for years. Continue reading

Ghosts of Savannah

Savannah, Georgia is one of the most haunted cities in America. There are more dead than living in the city. There used to be a lot of cemeteries but due to erosion and development, many have been lost to history.

We didn’t know what to expect. We booked this trip on a whim to see a cemetery and decided to do something a little different – a ghost tour. This is how we met Adam from Philly, a SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) graduate, and tour guide with Blur Orb Tours. Continue reading
