A Few Notes on an Early Weekend

Today was officially Friday for me, and a short one at that. I'm leaving tomorrow to visit a friend in Florida for the weekend and will return on Monday afternoon. So if the blogs appear to be slim this weekend, that is why. It's Mardi Gras weekend down here, and things have been rather quiet for it being so. I haven't been to any parades yet, but I've driven down Veteran's many times while parades are going on. It's been really empty out there. Not entirely sure why. Just not as big of a crowd as usual. Though I haven't been uptown yet, and I'm sure the parades there may be bigger in attendance. Throws have gotten better from what I understand this year. Lots of Fleur de Lis beads, and I heard that glass beads are making a come back. Pretty cool. One float that I saw being transported the other day that was hilarious had a giant Ray Nagin on it holding a chocolate bar. That was great. Sorry to those not from New Orleans if this paragraph made absolutely no sense.

In other news, Subterranean Press has posted a slew of new titles being published soon. Very excited about the Orson Scott Card and Charles De Lint books.

The blog officially went over the 1000 visitors mark today and is only a month and a half old, so thanks to everybody who stops by to read and leaves the occasional comment. I feel cyber loved....scary

Wow! My New Orleans clock is off... I had no idea it was Mardi Gras already, although I knew the date a few weeks ago. February has flown! Enjoy Florida! (I don't expect it's any warmer than TX or N.O. these days...) :)
