candace and i decided on a whim to drive down to south louisiana to visit my parents for a few days. i also had a gig last night in new orleans, so i was here for that as well, but that was my secondary motive for going. we’re going to visit some people and check out the quarter today while my parents are working. we haven’t been to jackson square or café du monde or anything since before hurricane katrina. then we’re going to come back and have some fried catfish. but the best is tomorrow. boiled crawfish. yes. *laughs three times* i didn’t think i’d be able to have any this year now that i live in the atlanta area.
