Happy New Year 2007
I'm dumbfounded by how much money people around here spent on fireworks. When this display ended, Rachel and I could hear the loud cheers of people from all around. We joined them for, indeed, it was awesome. And we didn't have to leave "home."
Now it's time for black-eyed peas and cabbage rolls. Between rate hikes from Entergy and the insurance industry, looks like all of us here in NOLA are going to need lots of luck and money this year. And since no one waits until Twelfth Night / Epiphany / King's Day anymore, tomorrow I'm getting a King Cake. Mmmmmmm!
Happy New Year, everyone! 2007 is definitely going to be better than 2006 was. It HAS to be.
