Back from New Orleans

I've actually been back since Monday night, but been too tired to post, with going back to work and everything. I've been totally exhausted all week and yesterday started to feel like crap, like I was coming down with something. I got home around 6:30 and went straight to bed. I slept until 7 this morning and called in sick. That's not like me, but it felt good to just take the day off. I feel much better already.
So about my trip...this was my best vacation ever, even though Louisiana highways suck. They don't mark their exits very well. So on the way back, we missed the exit from Baton Rouge to Alexandria and it took us about 2 hours off course. We ended up taking some back roads from Iowa, LA to Alexandria and one of my travel companions was afraid to go over the speed limit...something about being black in LA.
As for New Orleans itself..I can't imagine when it's actually Mardi Gras. It was so much fun just in August. And you're right, did rain off and on, pretty much the whole time we were there. We didn't do alot of touristy things, except go to the aquarium and we went on a riverboat. The riverboat was a waste, if you ask me..but it was relaxing. The best part of the whole deal was the Hand Grenade. What an awesome drink. It really does take out your inhibitions. It takes about 2 for me, but I became very friendly..which is unusual for me, even with alcohol. The clubs there were ok, the best one for me was Razoo's...where I met this guy named Skip. We danced a bit and kinda made out in the club...then one of my friends came up and told me that my roommate was leaving and was taking a guy back with her...what could I do? I'll have to finish this later...
