God has a sense of humor

the basin street station visitor's center has a mini replica of the city of new orleans as it would have looked circa 1900. it was created for the movie "pretty baby." when it was created, it incorporated the entire city's 1900 boundaries. at one point, the display went to paris and was stored in a warehouse there. the warehouse had a leak in the roof and i am (giggle)sad to say that most of the mini new orleans was lost to the ensuing flood. the french quarter remained in tact. it is on high ground after all.

observation number two

freedom of speech allows you to say whatever pops into your head but it does not protect you from the negative reactions of others, so do not complain when people call you names or you get fired.

observation number one

today, i saw a woman walking down the sidewalk wearing a shirt that read: "POSSE life skills" that proceeded to list them. 1.positive
3.socially skilled
4. self motivating
5. enthusiastic.

she had curlers in her hair, fuzzy slippers on her feet, and a bottle of beer in one hand. it was noon. hmm.
