Hollywood, Florida vacation

Sunday, April 14th, 2013

Back in January, Noah and I visited his Grandma Mary in Hollywood, Florida.  We get to hang out with Mary, plus get in a little vacation on the Hollywood Broadwalk on the Atlantic ocean.  Lots of Quebeçois, sun, nifty beach towels and just the two of us sitting  on the sand.

gluten free chocolate donut

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

YUM, a gluten free chocolate donut, made by my friend Janet Q (married to Al Q).  Janet always makes me gluten free foods (you should try her gluten free banana bread with chocolate chips!) when I visit.  What is astonishing about this particular donut is that it has spinach and beets in it! Janet didn’t tell me until I’d already happily munched on three donuts.  I would say that’s a successful donut.

SXSW portrait 2013

Sunday, March 31st, 2013

Noah in all his wrist band glory, at his old dartboard stomping grounds, The Grackle, to watch a Saturday showcase during SXSW. 

For SXSW this year, I worked while doing duty as chauffeur for Noah.  I would drop him off at 1pm somewhere near 6th Street, then pick him up again at 2am, usually at Red 7, dodging traffic and zombies (drunk people on cell phones hailing taxis).  Then we would go get barbacoa tacos from the taco trucks on South Congress by St. Ed’s.  You would be amazed at the line of people waiting for tacos at 2:30 in the morning
