I should have worn earplugs to sleep, I was given fair warning last night. I left work early and wanted a nice quiet night at the cafe on my corner with my computer. Instead I came home to mayhem in the neighborhood. There were people everywhere, streets were blocked off. The Jews for Jesus were giving away free hot chocolate. I questioned their motives, then I questioned if they had put drugs in the hot chocolate. I was disappointed when they said, "No, that would be too expensive."
Anyway, I went to go investigate the commotion, turns out the balloons were around the corner from my building. A few were tied down and uncovered, but most were squashed and strangled under nets, which was bizarre and slightly depressing.
Some of the balloons looked like they'd had a bit too much to drink, especially these guys...
Bizarre for sure.
There's a Saints game to watch. Me and Jenelle are cooking Indian food and drinking rum. I don't have to wake up early tomorrow, and there aren't any parades that I am aware of. Things are looking up.
