I started off with the intent of writing humor; kind of like putting notes in a bottle and sending them adrift. Not that I'm especially funny, but trying to be. I believe it's a good idea to write about things one knows something about, so I write about being a girl, growing up in New Orleans, sex, psychology, and whatever creeps into my awareness at the time. Even sports. There's no particular chronological order I'm subscribing to. I love New Orleans; it was an interesting place to grow up in; and blessed with a panoply of interesting characters. My recurrent characters, the Prophetess, the Lucky Dog Guy, Crazy Chester, the Ninja Fairies, the assorted street corner preachers, cops, and others are based on New Orleans types. Although we're a bit insular; we learn at an early age that we have to take an active part in making our lives interesting, and that if we do, life can be fun.
Yes, a former Governor of Louisiana had a stripper girlfriend.
I mean no harm to anyone. Even when I go off field with my opinions.
I must confess to preferring the Times-Picyaune to the New York Times or the Boston Herald or the Washington Post even though I'm now in The Big Elsewhere.
Why did so many people get so shook up about a former prosecuter and television news harridan accidentally exposing a breast while dancing?
What do the Occupy Wall Street People have as a plan? Have they worked anything out? Or is it a "Look at Me" moment?
I'm glad Amanda Knox got off. The legal case against her didn't seem to make sense.
"Moneyball" is a great movie. "What's Your Number," not so much. I'll go see "The Ides of March" sometime.
There's a cute little girl song in "Moneyball."
A shameless GEAUX TIGERS! after the win Saturday over Florida.
Why do sandwiches seem always to have the default mayonnaise spread. I hate that white crap!
