New Orleans, LA

Swampland in the dark, Parkway Po’boys & fried pickles, Naps in City Park, St. Louis Cemetery #3, Bayou St John & Esplanade (jasmine, gardenia…), Snowball @ Hansens the day it opened for the season (my flavors: wedding cake & lavender honey), Explorin’ the Bywater (Pizza D!), Crescent Park, Tulane & Loyola, Beignets at Cafe du Monde, Po’boys at Avery’s, Local jams in Siberia

Shrimp & Grits: $13.25
Notes: Surrey’s–see picture. ‘Nuff said.

Unexpected Highlight #1: Revisiting my past love of Sailor Moon

Unexpected Highlight #2: Sleeping in a bed underneath the stairs Harry-Potter style

Unexpected and BEST Highlight #3: Seeing Zadie Smith (OMG) speak at Tulane University. She spoke eloquently on re-appropriation, humor, literary strengths, and most importantly this conversation happened…

ZM: Ahhh, okay, I’ll take one more question.
Audience Member: What’s the meaning of life?
ZM: *pauses* To get over yourself.

Don’t quote me on this, but I might want to move here.
