I took the day off of work today to clean up around the house and get some things done this afternoon before Krystle showed up at the house this evening. She drove down to New Orleans today to take me back up to Ruston for Bianca’s graduation at Louisiana Tech on Saturday.She arrived at my house at about 5:30 this afternoon. We originally planned on going to the Tulane/Rice baseball game but it started earlier than I thought. She was tired from the long drive anyway so we didn’t bother going anywhere far. We did go out to eat at a Vietnamese restaurant on the west bank that my mom recommended called Hoa Hong 9 Roses. I don’t think I’ve seen a bigger menu in my life, they have an overwhelming selection of Vietnamese and Chinese food. I couldn’t begin to choose so Krystle and I both had recommendations from the waitress.After dinner we stopped at Oakwood mall for a little bit. I had not been there since their post-Katrina reopening a few months ago and I wanted to have a look. We looked through a good handful of stores but didn’t buy anything. The mall looks pretty good, a lot brighter than I remember. The light fixtures are a bit childish through. Later tha evening after we got home we watched some TV and Casablanca.
