The Mind Wobbles

So many things to absorb, think about, deal with and put up with - it simply makes the mind wobble...

Musings from The Big Easy

Monday's Highlights - except for the Virginia Tech Horror

  • We slept in late, woke up and watched TV only to hear a major *low light* - the horrific shootings at Virginia Tech - I can't even begin to wrap my head around this.
  • We went to Harrah's casino - it's supposed to be the largest casino in the world. We had lunch at the all-you-can-eat buffet. It was really good - I had wonderful BBQ brisket and turnip greens.
  • We were at the casino for about 4 hours. We played video poker and then I played a ridiculous 2 cent slot game. I started with $5 and ended with $20! Plus there were lovely complimentary cocktails - that's always a happy thing.
  • We had dinner at Felix Restaurant and Oyster Bar. I had a wonderful "sampler" with red beans and rice (a New Orleans tradition on Mondays), jambalaya and crawfish etouffee - it was good!
  • After dinner we strolled on Bourbon for a bit until we stopped at "Blues Club" where we spent the next 5 hours, drinking and enjoying great music. I accidentally had a shot of Jagermeister - it was interesting and strong. I actually thought I was ordering Goldschlager, which is cinnamon schnapps and very delicious. I don't know that I'll order Jagermeister again, but now i can say I've had it. I eventually also had the Goldschlager, a jello shot and some peach schnapps - a good time was had by all!
  • The music was fantastic and hubby was completely in his element - I was happy to see him so happy.
  • A guy threw several strands of beads at me from a balcony and I didn't even have to flash anything!
