In 2006 (post Hurricane Katrina) I was an extra in the movie Deja Vu which was filmed in New Orleans. I recently saw the movie on cable while flipping through channels and caught my main scene. I was reminded of when I first saw actress Paula Patton on the set and was immediately smitten. It was my first time ever seeing Paula. I have been a fan ever since. I truly got such a big kick this week upon flipping to the channel right before my big scene came up.
I cannot wait for lovely Paula’s next movie to come out. Also on my mind is that now, with Carolina meeting Denver in the Super Bowl in February, I want to update my article on the playoffs.
Over the weekend, I somewhat accidentally caught my first Mardi Gras boat parade on Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans. The parade was lovely and I had an excellent time. The parade was by the Krewe of Bilge.
I also love my University of New Orleans. When will the state and the LSU Board stop treating the University of New Orleans like a stepchild. We were supposed to have our Division 1 football team by now, but Gov. Bobby Jindal and the LSU Board killed the funding. I am #mad. Can the team plans be resurrected now that we have a new governor with vision and are now governed by a new/different board, the University of Louisiana System?
I was working for the Shuttle program when the Columbia accident happened. I will never forget the shock at watching from the NASA plant at work the Shuttle go down.
