New Orleans is a teenager... by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

New Orleans is a teenager, all full of potential looking forward to the life standing in front of it. It’s hard to imagine middle aged from that vantage point. Middle Aged being a little more mature, a little more knowing, a little more than it was. Mistakes are made, paths that are followed for some time and abandoned for better paths showing that show themselves with the acquired knowledge of the passing of time. Few people know who they are or who they’re going to be as they move forward into the world. Some think they know and are wrong. Some seem to be right but there’s this nagging feeling that with more exploration; more mistakes, they could have been something else – not better or worse – just something else.

Reasons why today is a good day for me...

1. I sold my 11th pre-order copy of "Dont Worry Honey, I Live Here: How Locals Celebrate Mardi Gras" (click here for more info)

and

2. I got the greenlight to produce a short online film for a local arts organization. The topic is one of my favorites: the local media!

I'll interview journalists on their experiences covering the storm, as well as their thoughts on why the city should be rebuilt.

The film can only be 6-10 minutes and even though the group who is sponsoring me considers the pay low, it's good money this pauper!

"Do you know much about chocolate? You make it by combining white milk with dark chocolate and you end up with a deliscious drink!" - Nagin to WDSU reporter.

I think our mayor has lost his filter, like most everyone else down here these days. His statement was one of the many crazy things that you just have to laugh about. I can't decide if he's out of it or if he said that line to get more national coverage of the city. Who knows. But I smell a cush job waiting for him with the NAACP (like our last mayor currently has) after he's not reelected this year.

Man, I love this city and all its characters!

Arrested!

This morning I made a color copy of my passport at Kinkos for a tv game show thing a friend and I are trying out for... and when the Kinkos guy spotted my copy he came over and said he was supposed to call the cops b/c I was creating a false ID card!

I laughed, thinking he was making a joke. But he continued on... saying it was serious and he was under orders to call the police if anyone makes a color copy of their passport. I just kinda said "ok, thanks for the info" and wrapped up my project and left.

The last thing the cops in this city would respond to right now is that!

I don't know what I find stranger... that Walgreen's sells five different flavors of Diet Coke, or that I bought them all so I could take this picture:

I'm watching SNL right now - I didn't wanna miss Scarlet Johansan who out of the blue became my #1 celebrity crush a month or so ago (replacing Kelly Ripa who is still high on the list). She's so charming and pretty!

Death Cab is playing right now... what a great episode! This is the first time I've seen SNL live in years. I usually catch it on reruns on E or something.
