Laissez les bon temps rouler!

It’s Shrove Tuesday, also known as Fat Tuesday or, as an old buddy liked to call it, “Fat-ass Tuesday.” Until Easter, depending on your predeliction, Fat Tuesday represents the last opportunity to get Fat, to indulge, to eat jelly donuts, beignets, étouffée, Shrimp Po’ Boys, gumbo, crawfish stew and jambalaya … plus, of course, your adult beverage(s) of choice.

Personally, Joey Porter’s Pit Bulls lament that every day isn’t Fat Tuesday, but that’s just us.

Laissez les bon temps rouler! (“Let the good times roll!”)

“Down south in New Orleans, the prettiest girl I ever seen
Sparklin' eyes, lips so sweet, we make the love to the rhumba beat
Ship's at anchor, my suitcase packed
Got a one way ticket, I ain't comin' back
Life's a pleasure, love's no dream
Down south in New Orleans

“My green-eyed baby, I'm on my way
Back into your arms to stay
I'm tired of work, I want to play
And I love you night and day”

I have the best birthday ever. :) I am 90% certain that I might meet a beautiful woman tonight that is willing to engage in carnal acts with me.

You may need to throw her some beads and doubloons first, but it COULD work.

I will throw my dog at her. That seems to work every time.
