New Orleans, Day One

  • I arrived in New Orleans last night at 10:30pm.  
  • Rented fabulous new company car.
  • Got lost in a sketch neighborhood.
  • Locked doors at an awkward moment between me and a dude yelling at another dude.
  • Found new apartment.
  • Struggled with luggage.
  • Told a bum I didn't have any cash and please don't help me with my luggage.
  • Met Summer and Ashley and Edie, watched some Project Runway.

  • Slept on uncomfortable too-short couch, since landlady inexplicably still lives in what is supposed to be my bedroom.
  • Showed up for work.
  • Learned that we do not say "B" at work.  We say "Bravo".  We do not say "F". We say "Foxtrot".
  • Had first (and definitely not last) fried shrimp po'boy for lunch.


  • Got a badge card.  (Check out my company car)  :

  • Accidentally made fun of boss' accent.  By repeating his exact phrase about Walmart in a mocking tone.
  • Finally the landlady moved out.  Our apartment couldn't be more adorable.

  • Balcony!!

Summer is purposely making a weird face here, if you were wondering.


Porch living room!

  • Fell in love with the neighborhood.  (It looks just like it's supposed to.  From my imagination.)

  • Had rabbit and shrimp jumbalaya, deep fried oysters and crab claws, a beer and went to bed.

when i read the bit about not saying "B" or "F" i thought that you were using euphemisms for cuss words at work. i get it now. but it would be funny my way too. lovely apt, lovely ladies!

Mom said...
