Laissez les bon temps roulette
Marilyn keeps saying she thinks she won't win the EPIC award because she's up against my book, and I keep saying I won't win because I'm up against hers. Not to mention that she is the real pro in this business and I'm a novice. But regardless of who wins, being in New Orleans with Marilyn and Billie will be great, and Holli lives there, so I imagine we'll all be getting together for some famous New Orleans food. Now that I think about it, if I didn't know Billie was from Illinois, I would have pegged her to be from New Orleans. She has that easy-going, you only live once, do-right-but-enjoy-it-along-the way philosophy that defines Nawlins. I can picture her riding one of those floats and tossing doubloons.
