Even policy dweebs love Mardi Gras!


I am pictured here with AALL's fabulous Associate Washington Affairs Representative Mary Alice Baish and this year's winner of the AALL Public Access to Government Information Award Cathy Hartman. Mary Alice and Cathy deserved a respite after conducting heavy discussions regarding archiving of government information and Congressional funding for the Government Printing Office--and New Orleans is just the place to relax!
    

We passed a good time!


This is a picture of me (center) throwing beads in the Mardi Gras parade that followed the Closing Banquet. As you can see, we had a wonderful time! Also in the photo: Denise Uzee and Fran Norton.
    

Swamped


What to do before heading home from the conference? A swamp tour, of course. I wasn't the only one who had that idea. I ran into another AALL conference-goer coming off a tour as I started on my adventure. The swamp was - as promised - extremely hot but fascinating. I even got to hold a gator.


    

Sumo Brain


Sumo Brain (my name for the Sumobrain.com freebie figure) seems to have been the hot item at the Conference this year. I just made a flickr.com group (aptly named Sumo Brain) to record his travels. If you got one of these freebies, please join the group and post your pictures of Sumo Brain doing his thing.
    

Beignets


I don't care too much for do-nuts but when I heard about the Beignets I decided to try them. Wonderful! Served fresh and hot with loads of powered sugar. Usually you can find them in New Orleans for about $2 for 3.
