September definitely seems like the time to get back to business. I am continuing to go through my shareholders list and follow folks on Twitter. I’ve been pleased that I am getting followed back fairly quickly. Who knows how long it may take to get back to where I’d been on my old account, but progress is always nice.
Yesterday Ron and I treated ourselves to Popeye’s. Their shrimp po boys– while not exactly like what you would get in New Orleans– are absolutely scrumptious and the fried chicken is so, so good. Short of actually travelling to the Crescent City to eat for a week, Popeye’s is definitely one of this New Orleans boy’s favorite dinners.
I have been surprised that my Empire Avenue share price continues to go up, up, up every single day. I am almost back up to 151/share, and if the trend continues I will soon be to a price higher than I was before I took some time off and had my fall. I am firmly resolved that this week I will begin working on revising Walking Down The Avenue. I am thinking that I am going to recommend that most players start out by accumulating wealth so as to be able to use Empire Avenue missions to guide social activity and build their followings across the various networks.
I suppose it could be argued that that last paragraph discusses a bit about the business of using Empire Avenue as a social network, though I would be the first to admit this argument would be a bit strained. I thought about including an aside about having once been a tiger– the years I matriculated at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, but at the moment I can not think of a single shareable anecdote from the years I spent on that campus. When the blue moon came the other night, I thought about the reference to the blue moon in one of my friend Susan Wells Bennett‘s Brass Monkey novels. But mentioning Susan primarily serves to remind me that I never did get around to writing reviews of most of her novels on my book review site, which I have quite neglected for ages now. (Adding that as yet another item on my ever expanding fall agenda.)
Here’s hoping it’s been a nice Labor Day weekend in your world. And finally today, my thanks to Wayne Hurlbert who suggested today’s words.
