Update Saturday – pictures & still wondering if the rumor about Mayor Nagin holds any water.

I did my share this evening and contributed to the Abita Beer fundraising for the front entrance of our subdivision (thanks Troy- he works there). My fantabulous Lakewood Heights(awesome website) neighborhood in Mandeville of about 120 homes, had at least 50% participation in this neighborhood block party. This is paradise here, seriously, we couldn’t have ordered up a better group of neighbors! Kids ran around an entertained each other, neighbors met each other for the first time, burgers dogs & chicken were flipped by David deGeneres with his super-size grill (hubby had grill-envy). His wife Jennifer supervised and sampled the beer (and she did it so well). The Bra Genie greeted everyone at the table and gave them nametags. My neighbor, Brian Strand, MD, took his usual ribbing from me as his shirt color matched his door (lime green and I love it). Chat Stockstill from Atmosphere Movers took his dose of verbal abuse from me too (my kid slept over their house)! Such great people!

Then Terri & Sandy O’Donnell got me so fired up that I almost (almost – but I didn’t) put down my beer and ran home for the puter. They told me that Garland Robinette had someone on today that was convinced that Ray Nagin would resign on Monday. Whateva – I think he mentally checked out from that position a long time ago. Hey, Chulo the Stupor Dog (my mutt) is looking for extra income to support his stomach – can he fill in? Nobody would know the difference -except for the photos.

Hey – we have room for 5 more families if you want to join this wonderful neighborhood! Click here and here. I’ll share pictures later – too tired!

FYI: Dr. Phil is solving all the problems in Jena – so you all can sleep better now! Actually, if anyone can settle things – he can!

  1. Landrieu is the repubs best (only?) Senate pickup chance in a cycle where they’ll be trying to hold on to twenty-two (22!) at the same time.

    Not a good place to be.

    Not having a candidate at this point is also a sign of desperation, as is getting a nominal former dem (Kennedy) to switch parties in an attempt to get him to run.

    Landrieu’s a piss-poor excuse for a dem (she caved on FISA in August; the ridiculous resolution concerning MoveOn’s calling out of the political general, and the Liberman/Kyl non-binding resolution)

    If she’s gonna vote like a wingnut, she might as well call herself one. I hope she gets primaried, but chances are she’ll get re-elected. Change is hard.

    Came across your blog at my lil’ chickee Rightwingsparkle’s place. Are you the one who joined her in harrassing the gay folk in N.O., captured on video? after watching that footage, and comparing Sparkle’s image to the one she’s had posted on her blog, I gotta ask: has she put on a few pounds, or what?

  2. Why are you so concerned with RWS’s weight Zed? She is a beautiful human being inside and out – and she is skinny as a rail. As for politics – not going there on this post.
