TBH, I didn’t even realize it was Mardi Gras until I was watching the news this AM. I’m kind of sad because since I was a kid my family has always done a pancake dinner (AKA, Brinner) for MG, but Fiance & I are both doing our own thing for dinner tonight.

Of course, I’m not catholic so I guess we could do it tomorrow, but it’s not the same?

I’m sitting at home with an eye patch on. Yup.

I woke up this morning with a red/irritated eye that I couldn’t keep comfortably open. I called in sick to work because there’s no way I could teach like this. I only realized afterward that it’s Mardi Gras, so to be festive, I ate two pieces of pizza and am watching Whose Wedding Is It Anyway?

To be honest, I don’t think I would be doing anything differently if I weren’t wearing the patch. At least now I can have fun pretending to be a pirate.

I have no concept of time anymore.  I had no idea it was Fat Tuesday until a co-worker was talking about Ash Wednesday.  I was born and raise Catholic, but I really don’t practice it anymore.  I try to stick to knocking something out or doing something better for Lent.  It’s more for the challenge if anything.

I’m making a King Cake…and that’s about it. I didn’t even remember until this morning, which as someone who lived in NOLA for almost half my life makes me sad.

Being Catholic AND Cajun I am eating fish, king cake and drinking some beer when I get home. This is my favorite time of year.

@reginaphalange:  Ahoy!!

I am trying to use it as an excuse to not eat healthy today because I’m having cravings for something sweet and bad. (I am not Catholic though, just love eating lol!)

Fat Tuesday?!?!?! What a funny name. I thought it was like a new Weddingbee tradition until I realised it was probably an equivalent to Pancake Day.

I had pancakes. It’s really the only option for Pancake Day. 😛
