Louisiana...wow.

A journal entry from: Colorado

If you live in Louisiana, I'm really am not trying to offend you.

 

If you're looking for a good time, come to Louisiana!! (If you look closely, you can see the words dripping with sarcasm.) 

 

We arrived at Dan Blennis's house last night around 10 p.m central time and met his absolutely adorable cat, Bej. He reminded me of a sand dune. He was this perfect sand color and tall and skinny. We had pasta and watched Friday. Neither Daniel or I had seen that movie but it's freaking funny and if you haven't seen it, you need to. We got tired really fast though because what was midnight felt like 1 a.m. to us so we went to bed pretty soon. This morning we went to Waffle House and dear God everyone in there wanted to kill me. You know why? Well let me remind you of the scene in Talladega Nights when Jean Girard, the French Formula One driver, turns on the jazz music in the bar. Yeah I was Jean Girard only I was in a Waffle House in Louisiana and I played "Sunday Morning" by Maroon 5. BIG mistake. Dan just looked at me and said, "You're going to get us killed." Oops. So after that I played their most popular selections, "It's 5 o'clock somewhere" by Alan Jackson. Yeah.....

 

Well there is no starbucks here either. Or well paved roads. Which there is a fun story behind the crappy roads that I didn't know. Apparently when the U.S. wanted to make the legal drinking age all over the country 21, Louisiana would have nothing to do with it. They wanted to keep the drinking age at 19, God bless their souls, and so the great old American government decided since Louisiana wouldn't do what they wanted that they would take away all their money so that finally Louisiana would have to give in. So since they had/have no money, they can't fix the roads. It does provide some entertainment though. If you go "aaaaaaahhh" while driving is goes up and down and sounds funny. 

 

We will have some really neat pictures up here soon because Dan took us to his school where he's learning to fly helicopters. I got to sit in a helicopter :) They were really cute too because they were these little bubble looking ones. We got a video of one taking off so if there is a way to upload videos on here we will. If not, I'll put it on you tube and give you guys the link. 

 

We are on our way to Texas right now listening to Linken Park and drinking the one and only Red Bull. 

 

Love ya'll.

While you can't add videos directly, you can put the video on either YouTube or Google Video and then embed the video directly into your 'blog post. Thank Bryan for that one. By the way, if I recall correctly, Montana got itself in a similar pickle with Uncle Sam. Instead of bucking the Age 21 To Drink rule, they told the feds to shove it over speed limit caps. Can everyone say "overreaching Congressional powers?" But that is a rant for another day...
