well, i’m back…

in the Atlanta airport.

i didn’t manage to blog any while in NOLA (obviously) – but it wasn’t because of a lack of time. had plenty of “down time” between parades and events that wasn’t spent wandring the streets. but the hotel (which was otherwise very nice) only had wired internet access (being addicted to wireless, that made it right out) and was almost three times what this wi-fi connection in the airport is costing.

plus, the only public wi-fi network i could find had so poor a signal, i couldn’t use it in bed – it only came in (and weakly) in front of the room window. well, maybe it was a sign.

i do have quite a bit to report on, and sometime this week i’ll get pictures and my perceptions up.

    ….and I thought you were going for MG! Isn’t that tomorrow?

    yes, the actual day is tomorrow. but Carnival has been running since the tenth. Fat Tuesday (from everything i’ve been given to understand) is not the day to be in NOLA. but the weekend is fine – great, even. even considering how much you hate crowds, much less crowds of the great unwashed, you’d probably have even enjoyed the weekend.

    So?! Do tell! We’re waiting.

    hey! i’m still sobering up.

    well, not really. but i haven’t got all (any) pictures uploaded or resized yet, or even time to write anything. been catching up for the missed day at work…

    Did you have fun? I went in 2005. My cousin rides in the endymion parade, so we got to go to that ball. I had a blast. Well the parts I remember, I had a blast.

  6. Stewart Says:

    So you’re back.

    Sorry, you’ve *been* back.

    For, er, around two days less than a month or so.

    Do these pictures in fact exist?

    Inquiring minds want to know!

    uh, *ping?*
