january road trip 2008

this past weekend, I went to new orleans with 3 friends: aaron, kyle, frank. I'm all about tradition (my friend evan has driven home the importance of tradition), so after our road trip to bill's wedding in corpus christi, texas, january of last year, we decided to make another road trip january of this year. (corpus christi, by the way, is where people tattoo the word "texas" in cursive along the front of their neck)

so this year, we went to new orleans, and suits were required for part of the trip because suits were part of the deal last year. people asked us why we were in suits and we told them we weren't sure. a girl on the street told us we were freaking everybody out and that they all thought we were FBI agents. and I thought that was ridiculous because FBI agents don't wear skull caps and vintage $5 sunglasses from the french market. and then there was this parade and beads were falling from the sky. gotta love new orleans.

That first one is pretty sweet. Frank would look a lot cooler if he were diving sideways and shooting a nickel-plated 45 with a pearl handle.

Not that he's ever done anything like that.

the shot on the bed is fantastic. i'm thinking of a movie plot already.

St. John glances at the pics and says, "Those are silly boys."
I say, "Yeah, very silly."

New Orleans has king cake and king cake is delicious.

Did Frank's second lung have a good time in NOLA?

The Edge=Guitar
The Coach=Keys
The Coach is my hero.
Especially in a suit and cheap sunglasses.

I don't know if the blog world can handle all that hotness you boys have going on!

hey there BTM. Did you get my comment on your flickr? If not, this is what i said:

Jeff and I were at the state Fairgrounds around Christmas and he said "I bet brian could take some really cool pictures here"

So I thought i'd let you know! Fair Park looks like it used to be a really cool place... for a fair

Frank would look less cool getting up from said sideways dive with a broken rib.
