Never Can Say Goodbye

I've never been a fan of goodbyes. It always feels like a tiny part of my soul just disappears into some void and never comes back. They're not all forever, but my mind sometimes just doesn't know how to file the feeling into the proper box and put it away.

Today I said goodbye to my friend Julie and her husband Andy. She's moving to the U.K. to finally actually live with her husband after shuttling back and forth for several years between two continents. I'm extremely happy for them, but at the same time sad. I'm sad that I won't get to see my friend anymore. I'm sad that I won't get to share my summer lunches with her. On the other hand, I'm happy that she'll finally be with her husband every day. She'll be back she says. (fingers crossed!)

She's not the only friend who's moved. J.K. left New Orleans earlier this year and that was tough too. He moved to San Diego to greener, or browner, pastures. (It doesn't rain much there.) He's happy there,  and I'm happy he's happy, but I miss him too.

My mind will eventually help my heart feel better. After all, my friends are only a FaceTime call, a Facebook text, or an email away.

Clueless Teenagar part 1 - Kim Wilde - Say You Really Want Me

Every once in a while I stumble across some videos that, as a teenager, I used to just LOVE. They follow a pattern of containing not such great music, but BOY do they have some good looking guys. How did I not know???

Here's one of those videos.

Happy Mardi Gras

A few pics from a day in the Quarter.

Boutte Nights


Lots of ice for lots of cocktails. Have you ever!?


Miss Yvonne and Pee-wee. Miss Yvonne asked if I wanted Captain Carl, who was down the street, and I said no. I was really obsessed with little Pee-wee's look. Loved his whole outfit.


Would only let me take her picture if I said I was the "Baby Daddy." I did and you benefit from it.


Zulu passing by.


I love me tee!
