“Fat Tuesday” Terrific Mashup



Welcome to Tuesday Terrific, where we celebrate getting over the Monday bump and picking up speed for the rest of the week.

Today, we have a lot to celebrate, since it’s Mardi Gras, aka “Fat Tuesday.”  For a lot of us, it’s a day to indulge in goodies before the Lenten go-withouts kick in; for others, it’s Donut Day (for more info, see my ROW80 post that mentions Fasnacht Day); and for a lucky few, it’s a chance to be at “Ground Zero” in New Orleans for the parades and festivities.

But how about a non-fattening, sit-in-front-of-your-computer, won’t-get-you-arrested/hungover survey of how to celebrate Mardi Gras?  Easy-peasy!



Here’s my Fat Tuesday-themed

Mashup of How to Celebrate Mardi Gras in front of Your Computer


1.  Have some laughs.

So, how are you celebrating Mardi Gras today? I’d love to hear from you!

Until later,

    Thanks for the laugh! I don’t celebrate Mardi Gras, but yesterday was the start of Tim Horton’s Roll-Up-the-Rim, so I’m celebrating a month of being able to justify my coffee intake. Does that count? 🙂

    LOL I didn’t even know Mardi Gras was today! So obviously I’m not one who celebrates it – except, it’s Beer Night after work, when a bunch of coworkers go out for $2 draft at a nearby sports bar. So it’s particularly appropriate this time!

    I did most of my Mardi Gras celebrations this weekend for my birthday when I chose Papadeaux as one of my restaurants of choice…it was JAM packed with people celebrating. We wore beads, drank Hurricanes, and had some oysters on the half shell. YUM!
