Today is Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras, the end of Carnivale. Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent. Easter is late this year, on W4D's birthday in April. That's really late. I don't plan to abstain from meat or to fast during the 40 days of Lent even though I could use the discipline and a low cal diet. I have an online friend who gives up his Sapphire martinis for Lent. Now that's a devoted, dedicated man and a serious sacrifice. I used to give up wine for the entire 40 days but that was before I turned 18. Eighteen used to be the legal age in Florida.
I've been watching off and on, the live NOLA BurboCam and BeadCams online for the last few days. I keep looking for someone I know. Anyone I know. Hey! I just saw a man in a pink afro, a green, purple and gold (GPG) striped shirt wearing an animal print crinkle skirt with tennis shoes and white crew socks, and he's wearing a GPG necklace of metallic colored beads the size of grapefruits. I have never seen such big balls on a necklace. Oh, my! Here comes more people with them on. I need one of those necklaces. There goes a butterfly with hairy legs. I see a bald man on the balcony with a giant penis painted on his head throwing beads to the babes. Whole lotta dancin' goin' on and it is still daylight in New Orleans. I want that marabou trimmed pink cowboy hat. Pretty lady with a painted top. Oh, she's wearing skin and paint. Period. No top.
Click here to see some live cam captures from this afternoon.
Sorry I didn't think of it sooner.
Pix could be clearer but you will still be able to see some of the above.
Tune in to the live cams tonight. It should be fun.
I'm glad the good people of New Orleans are trying to get on with life and have a little fun.
Party On NOLA, Party On!
