I would like to buy some cheese.

Another pretty dreary day here in Floodville. I think the weather is supposed to improve before this weekend, which is great as it will also be French Quarter Fest. If you’ve never been, I highly recommend it as it’s a much cheaper alternative to JazzFest (cheaper in that it’s free), and you won’t get ripped off quite as much for food and drink. Sure, the acts might not be as "big," but you certainly don’t have to watch them from a quarter mile away. If you go, be sure to try out the prime rib sandwich from the Rib Room.

A rather disappointing day with the LRA yesterday. Long story short, the woman ("Patricia") who has allegedly been helping me, has been lying to me this entire time. What’s worse is that when I tell other people with the "resolutions team," what she’s told me, they treat me as if *I* am the one making it all up...because she couldn't tell me that. Uh huh. There is apparently nothing I can do to make someone look at our file and generate our options letter so we can then begin the months-long task of waiting for closing. My solution: I’ll just stop calling. To quote John Cleese, "it was an act of pure optimism to have posed the question in the first place. Tell me, do you have any cheese here at all?"

Oh, but those who are lucky enough to have no problems with their LRA application, the state is now going to give the awards out in a lump sum. Smashing idea!
