HAPPY FAT TUESDAY!
February | Li'l ol me

Posted on 02/28/2006 6:17:59 AM PST by LongElegantLegs

Alright, who's going out tonight? Where are you going? What will you be doing? Does your mother know?

Remember, Allahtm hates costumes like this, so Bedazzle your bikini, celebrate Catholicism, and flip the bird in a generally eastward direction!
According to internet sources:
In the Christian calendar, Shrove Tuesday is the English name for the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, which in turn marks the beginning of Lent. In many solidly Roman Catholic countries in Europe and the Americas, this is the last day of Carnival. In some historically Francophone places it is Mardi Gras, French for Fat Tuesday; the most famous Shrove Tuesday celebration is the Brazilian Carnival.
Also, something about pancakes.
Whatever.

What are you giving up for Lent? Are doing it because you're Catholic, or because you live with a Catholic, or because it's tradition? Or are you ignoring Lent altogether(sinner!)?

Not going anywhere. Unless you count my BRAND NEW WORKSHOP as going out. I got a fridge full of beer out there.

Nights out during special events are for amateur drunks. I am a professional drunk. You know that.

But it's also an excuse to dress in drag and pass out in the street- Who can say no to that?

Mardi Gras or Fasching Dienstag..... means tomorrow is Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent. What should I give up for Lent? Smoking? Nah. Probably sex as the GF and I have split up.

To answer your question, going to a business dinner tonight. If there are any nice looking female attendees, I'll throw them a few beads and see what happens.

That should go over pretty well. You never know what can happen after a few stiff drinks.

Try calling everyone dude or hot mama. And excuse yourself and duck under the table and curse your imaginary friend loudly for looking at that ladies cleavage.

Only on special occasions, Max. And darn it, we have a bunch of Roman Catholics living here, along with all of the New Orleans evacuees...It's going to get NUTS tonight.
Let me know how the beads at a business dinner thing works out! ;-P

During the Motorcycle rallies I go to, they do the same thing. Beads for peeps. I usually give my camera to my girlfriend and send her off for pictures of flashers. Women have so much more luck with that.

Last time I had one, I broke a filling on the beads and the string got caught in my teeth. I really hate getting the string caught in my teeth.
