Sonny Tries Gumbo

As some of you may know, I went on a vacation a couple of weeks ago, taking flat Sonny with me for several photo opportunities. If you are traveling around your hometown or far away, print out flat Sonny to take pictures with to post to our Facebook page! Learn more about the contest here. (You may enter as many pictures as you'd like).

In the pictures below, Sonny and I went to the Old Town in San Diego, where we stumbled upon some old buildings. Two small wood buildings side-by-side had once been an old drug store and general store. Now, one building is a kitchen and the other is a dining room as the Creole New Orleans restaurant.


We ordered a bowl of gumbo and a bowl of spicy jambalaya...which was a bit too spicy for me. This was the first time I had ever tried gumbo, and it reminded me of the bowl Bess gets to eat in Legend of the Crystal Skull. However, instead of shrimp, I had sausage in it. I count this as a Nancy Drew moment in real life: getting to try delicious gumbo!


On another note: today is Nikola Tesla's birthday! Head over to our Facebook page and check out the picture we posted, because if you use that promo code, you can get 25% off your purchase of The Deadly Device! Hurry, Nikola Tesla's birthday only lasts 24 hrs, and so does the sale!

Mmmmmmm.... gumbo!!! I had a bowl of it once and it was awesome.(: (I could go for a bowl of it right now :P) I just finished secret of the old clock... one of my favorites(: But this was an achievement for me because it took me not that long,( I started yesterday afternoon and finished this morning) I did have to go on the message boards that much, AND I didn't have to ask anyone to play with me in the scary parts. :P Oh, I have one question. Is the song on Emily's record from CUR? the one about Brigitte? Cuz I was looking at the credits and it said something about "Brigitte's theme".
Until next time! (as Bess says in ASH)
