Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Back from New Orleans Edition

Pop-Culture-608x500

Apparently my going on vacation has caused Hell to freeze over, because I returned from my trip to New Orleans to the winter weather that we largely avoided all winter. Let me tell you, nothing brings you back to reality faster than having to clear your car off  in a hoodie at the airport at 2 am. That’s too bad too because I had a really fun time in New Orleans. The weather was mostly great and there are a ton of things to do. Most of the people we encountered were super friendly; other than one kind of cranky Uber driver, we had a good time meeting new people. We did all the things that you need to do in New Orleans – Bourbon Street, Cafe Du Monde, the Garden District, etc. – and ate and drank all sorts of wonderful things. I’d definitely go back to scratch off the few things on my list that we didn’t manage to squeeze in. It’s going to be hard to get used to not having etoufee and crawfish on the regular.

But all good things must come to an end so now it’s back to work and blogging. Having to write the pop culture roundup this week actually helped me catch up on what I’d missed while I was away. So while I adjust to these wintery conditions and life back on Eastern time, check out some of the pop culture that might have slipped through the cracks.
