Anyway, the exciting news for the day is that I'm going to ride in a parade this Mardi Gras! Woot woot! It's called Muses - it's an all-women krewe and my boss and a bunch of her friends ride in it every year. One of their people has to go out of town so they needed a sub. I'm so pumped!!!! It costs a fair amount of money but since I apparently think I'm a baller already w/ the credit card debt, I figure another $1200 shouldn't hurt too bad. They've only been around about three years but they are definitely one of the funnest parades to attend b/c they throw a ton and always have really clever floats and themes. So I'm betting that riding with them will be a riot.
I'll have to send you all little packages of beads,etc. Maybe I can convince your mailmen to throw them to you, like a little mini-parade.
