Sometimes It's Best To Just Laugh

I've been working on a gi-nor-mous spreadsheet for the past couple of days. Here it is printed out, and hanging on my office wall. Even at poster size, the print is like 6pt. It's a cost spreadsheet that's got all the costs for my project on it.

I came aboard in the middle of this project. So, there are significant portions of the costs that I'm not familiar with. I ran across one of them today. "Erection Aids" for $3,600,000.00.

Not having any idea what this was, I yell to the guy in the adjacent office "Hey, what are these erection aids, and why do I need them?". Of course this happens as three women that work in my office are are walking past my doorway. About the time the words crossed my lips I realized what I'd just said... we all had a good laugh about it! Man $3.6mil sure will buy a lot of "Tri-Mix"!

Got a package containing painting supplies for the car.

More about the tools later, because I'm...

I'm in a hurry to get to New Orleans for the Voodoo Music Fest. The Toots and the Maytals play at 7:30. Gonna be close...

Others I hope to see this weekend include:
Ben Harper
Toots and the Maytals
Porter-Batiste-Stoltz (aka PBS)
Trombone Shorty
Kings of Leon
Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk (one of my all time favorites!)
Henry Butler (who played quite possiblty the best JazzFest performance)
Leo Nocentelli

The entire line up is HERE.

To top it off, Karl Denson Trio (KD3) - Sunday night at Tipitinas! Saw the KD3 about this time last year at Chelsea's Cafe in Baton Rouge, and was flat blown away. If you've ever seen Karl Denson play - you get that joke! Here's what I mean...

Erection aids - they really couldn't think of anything else to call them?

Have fun in NOLA! Eat lots of good food.
