TUE JUNE, 28
NEW ORLEANS, LA
10:30am: Woke Up, India House Hostel
11:30am: Walked to Starbucks
12:30pm - 4:30pm: Blogged
I'm digging this song as I write, Kill Em With Kindness
. I love the message - love is more powerful than hate.
4:30pm - 6:30pm: Programmed
7pm: Ate at Subway
I overheard a conversation between a black mother and the sandwich maker. The mother said her boy is fat, which she told him is a good thing because the girls like bigger guys now and she showed him pictures of famous fat guys, like rapper Rick Ross. He then ran home one day and said, "Mommy, mommy, all the girls do like me!" She is trying to do him right, but at the expense of his future well-being.
7:30pm: Watched Youth in Revolt then Sang/Drank on Front Porch, India House Hostel
11pm: Uber to Siberia Bar
I was told this is where the locals go. When we got there it was empty. I liked it though because the 7 of us could just talk about life, which inevitably led to politics. I explained why I don't like Obamacare:
In simple terms, I prefer a healthcare system where the government provides tax credits to all Americans so everyone can afford to shop in a privatized health insurance market. This has the benefit of providing full coverage to everyone in the country while at the same time letting the market do what it does best - drive down costs and drive up quality. Obamacare on the other hand will drive up costs and drive down quality. And if you disagree then please point to a government bureaucracy that is well managed and I will point to 50 that are not.
1:30am: Marched to Frenchmen Street and Drank at Bars
I was taught how to salsa dance in place and then some guy with tap dancing shoes came out of nowhere and had to one up me in front of the ladies.
3:00am: Ate at Krystal Burger on Bourbon Street
I immediately regretted eating there. Never again. The girls asked me, "Is the meat suppose to be purple?"
4:30am: Sleep, India Hostel
