"Chere Nouvelle Orleans, patrie de ma jeunesse, berceau de quelques-uns
de mes ancestres, tombeau d'un grand nombre de ceux que j'ai aimes. Je
demande a Dieu de te proteger, de te garder, de te benir. Par une Creole."
("Dear New Orleans, home of my youth, cradle of my ancestors, tomb of
many I have loved, I ask of God to protect, to preserve, and to bless thee.
From a Creole.")
~ Helene d'Aquin Allain, Souvenirs d'Amerique
et de France par une Creole, 1868

'New Orleans - Elegance and Decadence'

Mardi Gras 2012 - 21 February



You are probably a New Orleans Native if...

You're out of town and you stop and ask someone where there is a
drive-thru daiquiri place, and they look at you like you have three heads.

You drive your car up onto the neutral ground if it rains steadily and
heavily for more than two hours (and you know what neutral ground is...).

The four seasons in your year: crawfish, shrimp, crab and oyster.

You greet people with "Where y'at?" (or maybe "Howzhyamomma'an'em?") and hear back "Awrite" (or "Dey fine, dahlin!")

Someone asks for an address by compass directions and you say it's
uptown, downtown, backatown, riverside or lakeside.

Your burial plot is six feet over rather than six feet under.

You know the Irish Channel is not Gaelic-language programming on cable.

You can pronounce Tchoupitoulas but can't spell it.

You don't worry when you see ships riding higher in the river than the
top of your house.

Click for more......


So. You have some questions, no? You might need a little help, yeah.
Please read on.....

Hey, where y'at?

According to my favorite New Orleans web site, (thanks to Chuck Taggart) this
is the traditional New Orleanian greeting, and the source for the term "Yat". The proper response is, "Awrite."  Chuck's Gumbo Pages will assist you in becoming fluent in "Yat-speak", in addition to offering enlightenment on all manner of other goodies indigenous to South Louisiana.  Enjoy!

More excellent words of advice from Chuck:

"New Orleans.  La Nouvelle Orléans. The Crescent City.  La Ville.
The City That Care Forgot ... the greatest city in the world!

(Just do yourself and us a favor and please DON'T call it
"The Big Easy" or "New Or-LEENS" -- ack!"

Confused about "Cajun" and "Creole"? For example, New Orleans
isn't actually a Cajun city, but a lot of Cajuns live here. Here are
some answers for you:

"On Being Creole"

"Acadiana: Les Paroisses Acadiennes"

Merci beaucoup, Chuck!
