The Windsor Court Hotel had a nomination open for the top 140 New Orleans characters (get it…140 characters….that is the max that are allowed in a Tweet on Twitter). Anyhoo, I was watching and voting as I saw some names of my friend and people I admire get listed. I was excited to recognize so many on the list – seriously.Then my friend (formerly from NOLA), Tammy Munson got some wild idea to nominate me. Well, I’m not sure if I got any votes or if they only had 140 nominations, but I made it to the 140 cut. Tonight, the Windsor Court is holding a receptions to all those who made it. Not sure who is attending, but this is pretty cool! They will also name the top 7 ambassadors tonight as well. I’ve only lived here a little over 3 years and live on the I truly have no business even being listed…but this is way too fun. I’ll be there with bells on!

  1. Why doesn’t it say “The Notorious” Greta Perry?

    Just kidding. Congratulations. People get listed in these sort of things by making an impression. It seems like you’re pretty easy to remember.

  2. Hey — Nothing wild about it ! You deserve it and you are definitely a character! Have a great time and have a drink for me! 🙂
