Seafood Gumbo & Stanley Kubrick

Dad and I went to the French Quarter Festival again. We caught the latter half of the Tulane baseball game. They swept Austin. Tonight’s final was 7-3. April 24: Like many Monday’s past, Dad has been unable to take me to the Metairie office to work because I wouldn’t be able to get to class on time in the evening. Dad dropped me off downtown on Poydras Street sometime around one this afternoon. I’ve always wanted to go to Mother’s Resturaunt, a rather famous establishment here in New Orleans. I finally got around to doing so today. On Dad’s advice, I ordered the gumbo, which was quite good even though I’m not much of a fan of the food. I had to wait in line a little over a half hour to order, which I would guess isn’t bad by Mother’s standards. The place is wildly popular. After lunch I walked over to the Tidewater building to catch the Tulane shuttle uptown. On the way I walked through the Place St. Charles high rise tower, just because I was curious what was in there. On the ground levels there is a tiny mall sort of thing with a couple stores, a hair salon and a food court. I had time to go to the library for a while before heading to class. This evening’s persuasive public speaking class was the last for me. Tonight students gave their last speech with the assistance of a PowerPoint presentation. Sadly, the projector professor Hanemann was atrocious. It spit out a ridiculously distorted image. This was especially disheartening for me as I created a brilliant and beautiful looking PowerPoint for my presentation on Stanley Kubrick and a couple of movies. My speech went ok, I got an A. After class I caught the 7:50 shuttle downtown. Dad picked me up at the Sheraton. I can’t remember what was for dinner, but I do recall watching 24 later that evening.
