How awesome is it that it’s Mardi Gras?! Yeah, it’s dreary outside and it’s been raining a lot, but it’s not too cold. At the same time there have been people walking around in costumes, especially over the weekend and just a few hours ago, a kurent was running around our building.
And let’s not forget about the doughnuts. That’s the most important thing, right? Not that I can’t get a doughnut throughout the year, or make doughnuts myself, it’s just different these days. All the stores and bakeries sell so many doughnuts you’re basically buying them out of the fryer, they’re super fresh and so, so cheap! The prices go down around even before Fat Thursday and I love it. My hips not so much, but I don’t care, not today anyway.
