USA trip: Jenna and I finally managed a New Orleans trip that we had been discussing for a while. This was sans kids but, with Jenna managing to get pregnant shortly before the trip, it was a little less raucous than it might have been. After a night of sazeracs, my choice of just a Bloody Mary for breakfast was viewed with some suspicion but I think the photograph validates my decision. I also chatted briefly with the fabulous Xena Zeitgeist whose geeky “nerdlesque” show was a decided highlight. Jenna may or may not have been dragged on-stage.
