Laissez le Bon temp rouler! *
Did you get your Mardi Gras on today? Have some King Cake and wear your beads? I have never been to Mardi Gras. I went to a faux Mardi Gras parade once. It was in another coastal city, not the real thing. But it was pretty wild for a faux Mardi Gras, so I can only imagine what the real thing is like in New Orleans! If you want a peek of New Orleans tonight, just click here and go to one of the parade cams. I just checked and all I saw was a dump truck and some guys shoveling up party debris. Not very exciting! (But then it's early as I write this.) I wonder if all those partiers realize that to party "historically/accurately", they need to fast for 40 days after today?
Sometime I will talk about how much I love, love far away web cams. I routinely travel on a river ferry across the Rhein. I sit in the little German coffee shop and watch the river all day. Yes, I do. Sometimes I do. C'est la vie.
(Okay, I've used up all the French I know, so I'd better go study some more!)
