well, i’m off to New Orleans…

yep, going to Mardi Gras. got viewing stand tickets (on St. Charles) for the Saturday parades (Iris, Tucks and Endymion) and tickets to the Bacchus Rondezvous on Sunday (nothing like an excuse to wear a tux, right?).

i’ll be taking the MacBookPro, so i hope to be able to blog a little while in NOLA, with a “full” report sometime next week.

quote of the day:

“It is a thing that could hardly exist in the practical North….For the soul of it is the romantic, not the funny and the grotesque. Take away the romantic mysteries, the kings and knights and big-sounding titles, and Mardi Gras would die, down there in the South.” – Mark Twain, Life on the Mississippi
