Sorry for missing my Friday deadline, guys – I’ll try not to let it happen again. This week I got my hair cut, went out for cocktails & a goodbye party with my team at work, presented a marketing plan, spent an evening hanging out with clients (which was strange, but fun), and still managed to watch a lot of TV, read most of a book, and start planning my upcoming trip to NYC! I took a bunch of photos, but not one every day, as planned. In fact, most of them are from the end of the week.
On Wednesday afternoon, I got my hair cut. It was getting out of control! If you’re in the New Orleans area, I can’t possibly give enough of a shout out to my stylist Babette Liebenau at Stardust Salon on Magazine Street. She’s a genius with curly hair, but also works on boring straight hair like mine.
After my hair cut, the plan was to take my coworker Nathan out for a goodbye happy hour at Domenica Restaurant (which has half-priced pizzas from 3pm to 6pm nightly). Unfortunately they were all booked up, so we did a tiny pub crawl instead, hitting up The Sazerac Bar, Victory Bar, and The American Sector.
I spent some quality time on Thursday reading a great new book, “Death In The City Of Light” and hanging out with Murphy, who has needed much more love since The Man went away on assignment.
On Friday I did the seemingly impossible and CLEANED MY DESK! Actually, I usually like to keep my desk tidy, but over the last couple of weeks it just got out of control. It’s been affecting my concentration, so I decided it was time to take on the mess. Here are before and after shots.
Notice that I’ve added a second painting to my desk – another portrait of a woman by artist Amber Leilani – and in the “After” shots I also moved the red painting on my wall down to a better spot. In all, very pleased with the way this turned out. Don’t know where I’m going to put all the new origami I end up making in June, but we’ll figure that out soon 🙂
