Away Again

I depart for an extended weekend to one of my favorite cities to visit: New Orleans. (I interviewed for a number of jobs there - not that the jobs were in New Orleans, merely the interviews - none of which were offered to me, but I don't hold that against the city. Still, I continue to associate the city with a nervous knot in my stomach nearly twenty years after the fact.) Good food and drink, unusual architecture, history, and did I mention good food and drink?

This is my first visit back since the Unfortunate Events of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 - indeed, I had airplane and hotel reservations for the week after Katrina hit which were hastily cancelled. It will be interesting to see how the city has changed.

Travel safe, M Jameson

Thank you, ma'am! Despite teleportation issues and the possibility of airship catastrophes, I think I prefer travel in Second Life to the real thing.

You should take a look at Left 4 Dead 2 (or at least the trailer) as that is all set in New Orleans - I'll never look at the city again without thinking of terrfied running through the streets with hordes of zombies chasing me!

Ha! I just watched the trailer - I particularly liked the chainsaw - and you're right...come to think of it, some of those college kids looked very much like zombies, though perhaps it was just too early in the morning for them. :)

The game is as much fun as the trailer, seriously!
