“Yes, but only in a small way … I have to work in the morning.”

“I really don’t, honestly … I don’t really know the detailed history to it, so I don’t really have a connection to Mardi Gras.”

“Not really. I am an international student and haven’t really gotten into that much of Mardi Gras and other American culture.”

It does look like Steve needs sleep. Take care of yourself, man.

Anyway, any way you look at it, probably not. I don't take part in lent, so I don't need to gourge myself on anything beforehand, I'm generally not that fond of huge crowds of drunk people, and no one will give me any beads to flash anybody.

Nope. It has no relevance to my life. Plus, it's now just an excuse to drink, and I don't really care for the taste of alcohol or the stupidity of drunkenness, so there's not much left to appeal to me.

I am French also, but I do not speak it. You go autie, I think we will have pancakes too. R_I... abhor is a little strong isn't it?

This reminds me of that Truckstop Honeymoon song, "Mardi Gras in Kansas," which the wife and I happened to catch at the Bottleneck last Friday. They (Mike & Katie) live down the street from us and are some of the best neighbors anyone could ask for. Go out and get their new album, "Great Big Family," unfortunately it isn't available on itunes... yet.
