Happy Fat (Pancake) Tuesday!


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).

I know all about the 12 day / 11 night Galveston festivities (althought the Mardi Gras Museum is news to me). But what do YOU do for Fat Tuesday? How sinful do YOU get anyway?

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?

    Will flash for syrup? Something in my mind just doesn’t connect with that idea.

    BTW – Have you noticed the increased number of traffic accidents around the area? What’s up with that? Change in weather or something?
