So with Lent almost here, today is one wild and crazy day in many parts of the world.
Mardi Gras / Fat Tuesday is not a day to be taken lightly if you are of the boob baring / bead wearing persuasion — at least that NOLA tradition often the first image that comes to mind when thinking about today’s various drunken debaucheries.
Christina from the San Francisco Metblog has a killer post on different pre-Lenten celebrations around the world. I’m particularly taken by the Pancake Day tradition – even IHOP is in on it this year, offering a free short stack to each guest from 7am – 2pm today (oops… which ends in 40 minutes, sorry dudes).
Sadly, it looks like the most excitement I’ll be getting into is going to school to take an exam — but man, pancakes sound good tonight. Maybe my boyfriend will flash me for some maple syrup or something. WOO HOO.
Any other suggestions?
