Happy 100

My blog reached a milestone today. This is my 100th entry. It took me longer to get here than many of my friends, but hey, I write when I feel like it, and I don’t feel like it every day. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t.
Today there is a lot of good stuff to write about. Last night, we went to Riverstreet to gawk at everyone, and it was fun. From our perch on the balcony of the Hyatt, you could see the crowd stretching back out of sight without having to be in it. The people all looked like ants whose hills had been kicked over. Just a sea of heads moving, intertwining, getting jammed in a spot then moving again. We saw a girl flash a guy for a hat, then today, saw another girl flash -apparently just for the attention because no one gave her anything. Right next to where we saw the girl flash for the hat, there was a cluster of religious zealots with bullhorns and signs reading “God is Angry.” Indeed.
We left the balcony and headed for city market, and the crowd was big but not unruly. We danced outside Malone’s to some frightening tunes. It was all of the stuff that used to be popular in the 90s, but is sooooo not cool anymore. Baby Got Back followed by Ice Ice Baby. Songs we all knew the words to but were embarrassed to sing along.
We had to park pretty far away from the action, but Dave was kind enough to give us a ride back to our car when he finished his live shot for the news. Saved us some considerable shoe leather.
Today, the weather couldn’t have been more different from yesterday. A sunny, cloudless sky and warmer temps. It’s still a little chilly, but nothing like yesterday. We went to the beach and ate at Fannie’s then walked in the sand.
Tomorrow, it’s back to the grind. But that’s tomorrow. Today is good.
