- Out of form for myself, I actually gave the GPS in our rental car a chance and as typical for those devices, it did try to get us lost/killed a couple of times on the first day. However, after adequate threatening, the damned gadget smartened up and played nice for the rest of the trip.
- When sampling a nice Mom-and-Pop diner, my buddy Andrew cautiously asked a waitress if the restaurant’s jambalaya had shellfish, explaining that he is allergic, only to send the dish back to the kitchen to the tune of a loud and concerned southern black voice exclaiming, “Really?!? Shrimp is shellfish?” It was a shocking had-to-be-there moment, which landed on the safe side of the line between dangerous and humorous. In spite of the incident, I still highly recommend Duffy's Restaraunt in New Orleans who, in my opinion, has a charming wait-staff and the BEST damn pancakes in the south! =)
- 2-3 AM on Thursday, I briefly got into Rockstar Games’ after-party party which happened to be just down the hall from my hotel room. Unfortunately, I quickly found myself at the realization that no one there was up for networking with a guy like me at that hour. Still, I gotta hand it to them, pun/cliche or not, those guys really do party like rock stars!
- In my last blog entry, I noted that we had an unusual layover traveling from central Florida to New Orleans. Well, on the way back, we flew through Houston of all places, for a complete route that looked like this...

For anyone who was concerned by my last blog entry: The comment about my buddy Dwight in the last entry was because he had arranged for us to stay with different people on the way down and on the way back. However, on the way back, we almost got lost and were delayed both by a redneck speed trap and a GPS with PMS. Thus, the people who lived in the mansion where we stayed on the way back were all fast asleep in bed by the time we got there and it felt like we were breaking and entering when we quietly arrived very late and settled in for the night. Fortunately, when the sun rose, the residents all turned out to be incredibly nice and hospitable people who I still can't thank enough.
All that, along with an unconventional church service, too much fast food, more artistic nerd banter than you can shake a stick at, a mini Dexter marathon and a road trip playlist that mixed ska with Irish rock... No wonder I had a hard time catching up on Monday. :P

As I write this, I am in the middle of another slightly adventurous weekend... and while I intend to write a substantial blog entry explaining it a bit... for the time being, I am simply going to quickly use the wifi connection available to me right now to tell the world:
If I get arrested or killed this weekend, it is my friend Dwight’s fault! :P

Secondly, as a follow-up to my Superbowl Sunday post this year, I've recently seen that I'm not the only one who's been having question mark thoughts about how Gatorade conducts itself in the promotional sense. While stumbling the web, I found this blog entry from a photographer with a very familiar name (thanks yet again for the creativity Mom and Dad). - Chris O'Connell Photography: Ain't Nothin' but a G Thang

...one of the few occasions you can actually get me to have a beer. ;)
