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!

3. Sin a little. (Uh-oh, can’t stop? Try this product, from Jenny Hansen’s post): “Help Prevent Sinning with the ‘Sin Collar'”
4. And, finally, be daring (vicariously):
So, how are you celebrating Mardi Gras today? I’d love to hear from you!
