I am leaving for New Orleans in the morning. I just really wanted to visit a place that seems to be in the path of every single hurricane. Actually Shannon has a conference there this week that ends tomorrow so a bunch of us are going down there to meet up with her and explore the drinks, I mean, city.
I've never been there before, but I have heard from numerous sources that it is a really fun and exciting place. Plus I think it's where "Girls Gone Wild" gets most of their material so it can't be all bad.
I actually think it will be good for my diet since it is about 100 degrees there and 7,000% humidity. The weight should, quite literally, just melt right off.
Another interesting tidbit about New Orleans: it's below sea level so all the bodies in the cemeteries are above ground. So currently the image I have in my head of New Orleans is like at the end of Poltergeist where all the caskets/corpses are coming up through the floor and the swimming pool (holy crap-remember the swimming pool part!?), and while the bodies are coming up through the ground they are throwing beads at college girls who are lifting their tops. It's an interesting image.
I hope everyone has a great weekend, and I'm sure I'll have some stories for you when I get back. Hopefully none of them will be about me getting stuck in a swimming pool with a bunch of corpses.
