Happy Mardi Gras, y'all!

I enjoyed seeing a few of the blogger crowd at Krewe Du Vieux and now I get my chance. Candice and I got invited to ride in Pygmalion today.

I've been running around trying to get everything sorted out for Friday.

That's more that 50 gross of beads. I hope I won't run out before the end.

All those beads ain't cheap! $450 for cheap plastic Chinese shit I'm going to throw away to complete strangers. Ah well, that's how these things run.

Could be an entry into the truck parades...

I'll be on Float 16 towards the back on the neutral ground side. Let me know where you like to set up and I'll look for you and bombard you with beads.

Oh yeah, did I mention my 24th birthday is also on Mardi Gras day? It's going to be a hectic couple of weeks.

This is the time of year I'm fraid my floors are going to buckle from the weight of the Plush Appeal purchases.

We'll be at St. Chuck and St. Mary as is our annual bead-catching position.

jeffrey: we may be out and about in that area for the rest of the parades, too.

Also, Maitri, that load had my car two or three inches lowered and struggling to accelerate... We were not carrying them up a flight of stairs, therefore they are in the truck bed.
