Sean Taylor's July Newsletter; a new mid-summer classic

Better Late-r, than GATOR!!!

If you promise to eat it, I will bayou alligator - I ate gator...in New Orleans, not this cute fellow but someone who looks a lot like him (no offense). I took this picture on Avery Island, Lousiana (home of the Tabasco sauce factory). I also ate frogs' legs for the sole purpose of saying that I ate them. And, well, I just did. So, all bragging aside, I prefer crayfish, shrimp, andouille, and everything else I ate in that delicious town. Did you know that Cajun people are descendants of French peasants displaced from Nova Scotia? Yeah, like pilgrims, they came over to the "New World" seeking a new life away from religious wars and sucky Europe. Ha! You can learn a lot from a newsletter!

Can I...Play?! - I did my first play in years. You are probably wondering "Did you have an accent?" and "Was there a kiss scene?" and "Were you barefoot and wearing black?" to which the answers are..."Yes," "Yes," and "Of course!" I played Sylvia Plath's husband, Ted Hughes. The play is The Lazarus Yearsby Kate Mulley and was part of the Jamboree! created by Olivia Gilliatt (she played Sylvia Plath). The run is over but there will be more plays in the near future from Odyssey Productions.

It's Up, and It's Good...in my opinion - Check out the new look to the Magnet website that Justin Moran and I launched this past month. Let me know if something doesn't work and I'll find a way to pin it on Justin. If you like the site, you should see the SQL (pronounced "sequel"). Not every programer will let you see his backend. Nope, I'm a unique member of that array!
