Wrapping Upchuck: 4-21-10

I am always amazed at how quickly time slips by. It seems my last blog posting was this past Saturday, and now it is Wednesday morning. And I don't even know where the time went between then and now. This won't be a long Wrapping Upchuck, just a simple, short one hitting on the highlights. First was the Celebracion Latina that happened on Sunday. It was a day-long, outdoor, festival-style event celebrating Latino life and culture in New Orleans in conjunction with the Children's Resource Center of the New Orleans Public Library. The weather was perfect, lots of kids were out, and the music was great. The puppet show wasn't bad, either. All in all, a successful, fun event. Monday and yesterday were just regular university work/school days. Nothing so spectacular happened on either day. I did, though, play racquetball for the first time in a long time on Monday morning with a good friend and current graduate student. The only other real out of the ordinary event was my book club meeting which took place last night, where we discussed Christopher Moore's novel, Fool, which is a spin on Shakespeare's King Lear tragedy as told by the Fool/jester character. Anyway, that's about it (or about all I feel like mentioning).
