  1. An excellet photographer can make wonderful use of color and form. Your photos are a great example of what a creative photographer can see in a place where everything already looks like a postcard. Great job, Stephanie.

  2. Hi Stephanie: I'm going to be in N.O. this spring and I have reservations at a hotel on the other side of Canal street from the International House. I'm actually going for a wedding and not only is the International house closer to the wedding, but it's less expensive than the hotel where I currently have a reservation. I know this isn't a travel blog, but I was wondering what your thoughts were on that hotel?

    FROM STEPHANIE- I think the International House was fine. A few caveats- There is construction going on right next door and the noise in the AM is not conducive to sleep. Also, we booked a room not thinking it doesn't default to a king size bed. The Queen room was shockingly small but for $20/night the King works well although still on the small side. The hotel is centrally located. No concierge but the desk were incredibly helpful in helping us navigate a city neither of us knew.


  3. Totally random: My mom always used to say that phrase you use as your hed! But she said "Home again home again jiggety-jog." Weird. Did anyone else grow up with either phrasings? Where does it come from?

  4. Actually, it's "To market, to market, to get a fat pig. Home again, home again, jiggity-jig" It's an old nursery rhyme.

    FROM SK: Yes, I know. In Straight Up & Dirty, when invited to restaurant MARKT, I wrote:

    To Markt, to Markt, I am a fat pig.
    Home alone again, home alone again,
    Will it always be my gig?
