Hello crazy jazzfest people. Behind the sound booth at the
gentilly stage, here.

getting fixed

Call up IBM, "my burner is dead send me a new one," they say
back, "OK, done." The hardest part of the call was spelling
my street name.

Still no word on the deductible from my insurance, though,
might end up having to eat the cost thanks to the first adjuster
being really, really stupid. Talked to the regional manager
at Progressive about the whole deal and someone else is working
on it now.

pictures in motion

This place looks worse than it did after the storm. The bar next door is back.

lonely tree

storm surge gut job

This one I have an older picture of as well, it hasn't changed.

long boarding house

These are from the lakefront down in Mandeville, where I drove
through with my parents after having gone to eat Vietnamese
food at the Saigon Grill. New place, and really good food.
On the approach right before you get into Old Mandeville.

I had to scrub a couple hundred dead mosquitoes off the front
bumper of my car today. Welcome to springtime.

a non-post

I should take more pictures. Got none at French Quarter Fest,
but that is ok. It was fun, and the weather was awesome.

I'll try to have the camera around my neck for Jazzfest.

family history

August Willis

Heard this story for the first time on Easter at my grandmother's
house, this was her grandmother's brother. They never did figure
out who shot him, and he was found dragged off the road, with his
money and watch and other jewelry intact. Crazy.

music: Goldfrapp: Strict Machine

(Oh also, there was a Batt in politics here way back then, too.)

rampant consumerism

plasma tv = used motorcycle

That is the basic problem with my attempts to buy a nice
hdtv setup. Or a Mac mini to replace my 8 year old kitchen
laptop, which at this point can't even run Firefox since the
C library on the Linux install is so old. I'll probably buy
the mini before the tv, but the point is still there.

A friend asked over here, what do you really want?
Short answer: "love, a Ferrari, and cool shoes."

This year, the tax man does not require my soul, just the
first estimated payment, which alone is worth celebrating.

music: The Soft Boys: Song #4
(Ray, the song is all your fault.)

bright green alligator

green shoes

I've seen at least two other pictures of these shoes from the
same party, the nola bloggers' geek dinner III. They belong to
Michael Homan. The ice chest, at that point, was not yet out
of beer.

much better

Little black car is back in my possession. Back to driving
with two feet and fun with corners and u-turns.
