Long weekend in the Big Easy
Tuesday. 9.9.03 1:35 pm
Mike and I went to New Orleans this weekend to attend a friend's wedding. We flew in Friday and attended the rehearsal dinner that night. We were an hour late so we missed the parade through the French Quarter. Too bad, it sounded like fun! What wasn't fun was this wacko guy sitting at our table at dinner. We were never introduced but apparently someone told this idiot where I work. (I won't tell you the name of the company I work for but I think it is the best software company in the world.) Anyway, this idiot went off on a tirade about how monopolies spoil everything for the consumer. Then made some lame analogy about the automobile industry. I really couldn't follow his ramblings but I was pretty sure he didn't like me or my company much. I tried to defend myself for a bit but this guy wasn't listening. Then my husband leaned over to me and asked if I wanted him to take a picture of this guy for my blog. Of course I said yes. (Here's his picture.) When this guy saw the flash go off he went balistic. He was convinced we were trying to intimidate him for speaking out about the truth about the company I work for. What an asshole! The reason I wanted the picture was to post it on my blog and say what an asshole this guy is. Some people really should think before they speak.

Anyway, the rest of the weekend went alot better. The wedding was a traditional Catholic wedding so it was too long for my taste. The St. Louis Catherdral was beautiful though. There was a very loud jazz band at the reception that was fun but ended up giving me a headache. We stayed in New Orleans Sunday night because it is much cheaper to fly on Monday than Sunday. I am very glad we did. We attended a three hour class on Cajun cooking at the New Orleans School of Cooking in the morning. I learned to make gumbo, jambalya, pralenes, and bread pudding. It was all yummy!

In the afternoon, we decided to waste some time at Harrah's casino. Apparently, gambling is illegal in Lousianna but gaming is perfectly legal. Gotta love that state! Anyway, while Mike and played Texas Holdem I went over to the craps table. I started with a small amount and ended winning about 8 times the amount I started with. The high roller standing to my right was on a huge roll and the rest of the table was really cashing in. I think my winnings ended up covering our hotel bill for the whole weekend. Yipee!

Monday's flight was long but with the time change, we got home around 6:00 PM. I was so happy to get home and couch out in front of the Tivo.
