Fatuous Tuesday

Mardi Gras in the midwest is so tough. This is the one time of year when I get to let my inner freak OUT, but my inner freak gets cold, and just wants to huddle under a blanket. All the hipsters on 18th street tonight will put me to shame. Last year they had some amazing costumes. I need more beadage and funkage in my wardrobe, but all I can imagine wearing out there in the cold, waiting for the rag-tag little parade to make it from Y J's to the Blue Room, is something itchy and bulky, totally killing the spirit of Mardi Gras.

Let New Orleans have their party now. We midwesterners need to hold our Mardi Gras in May. Just imagine the crowds we could get, if the weather were warmer! I guess that's why we don't do it. We need the cold to keep the freaks in check.  

Sure, easy for them to dress this way. They're in Louisiana, where it's 80 degrees!
