...but not too late for Mardi Gras. That's right, cher! The "pre-Lenten religious observances" (as they are referred to on my official annual leave request) begin this weekend -- in big cities and little hamlets all over the state of Louisiana, as well as in various and sundry places outside her boundaries. It all culminates this coming Tuesday, after which we get our hairshirts out of mothballs, and spend forty days giving up something.
I just got me a big-@$$ mortgage to pay. What more can I give up? Oh well... laissez les bon temps roulez!
