Christian thinks that I don't love Mardi Gras. Simply because I occasionally opt to miss out on a parade here and there or because maybe I don't flip out over beads and wave at every single float passing by does not mean that I do not love Mardi Gras. I do. I absolutely do. I realize that nobody can love Mardi Gras as much as he does and that his perspective is a bit off but I think this picture that Nana took shows that I clearly have Mardi Gras spirit:
La Luz and Christian did not make it to see Obama at Tulane this morning. Christian seems to have caught one of the many illnesses circulating around the city and has been low on energy. It was probably a good thing that they didn't go because there was a huge turn-out and they likely would not have made it inside of the auditorium. Richmond was there and has a nice post about it at www.theperiphery.blogspot.com so check it out.
