NaBloPoMo Advice Column - Day 19 - Drink Great Wine with Old Friends

I'm writing 30 thoughts in 30 days for NaBloPoMo. In no particular order, I'm giving you my worldview - as it comes up.
Total Facebook score. A friend of mine from my college days showed up on Facebook a couple of months ago. Turns out, he's in New Orleans - and I was already planning on heading to New Orleans for work. (Anyone want to guess what I do for a living?) So I asked him if he wanted to get together and yes, he did. So he picked Ed and I up at the hotel room on Saturday night and took us to a fantastic neighborhood restaurant. Clancy's did not disappoint. Nor did the wine. If you're ever in New Orleans, I highly recommend it. Just close your eyes when the bill comes and hand it to your partner!


Day 1: Surround Yourself With Brilliant People (though my friend Susan makes a good point that clever is pretty good, too).
Day 2: Whatever, it works.
Day 3: Surround Yourself With Beauty
Day 4: When You Go Through Something New - Drag Someone With You
Day 5: No sweatpants.
