Ok guys, this is the BIG MARDI GRAS WEEKEND! So you know what that means, no dissertation writing will get done! I've just sat down in a little corner of our local coffee shop to hopefully grind out some good work today so I can feel better about slacking this weekend. But seriously, if you lived here you would understand.
Do you know what is possibly the most annoying thing ever? When ONE person takes up one of the big, nice tables at the coffee shop. But in today's case, all the nice tables are each taken up by one person. I'm by myself today, so I don't mind sitting at one of the little "cafe" tables, but when Jeff and I come here together this drives us absolutely nuts! It's the little things that will make you crazy...Jeff said I should just walk up and sit down next to someone. Wonder what they would say?
On a less grumpy note, I'm getting another King Cake today! Instead of being lazy and picking up the grocery store variety, I actually ordered one from a bakery and will go pick it up this afternoon. It will be filled with cream cheese and all that is good about New Orleans. Don't worry, I'll post pics of it before it's devoured.
I can't wait to share some parade pics with everyone!
