My camera cord was on top of my microwave!
Wait.. that wasn't the answer you were waiting for?
Oh, right, my LIE from Wednesday's post. I'll run down my truths and lie really quick, because I've also got Mardi Gras pics! YAY for my super-awesome Friday post!
#1 I really can touch my elbows together behind my back. I seen videos of people doing it on YouTube, so at least I know I'm not the only one. I am the only person I've ever heard of who has a divergent sacrum and two pairs of coccyx bones. I'm thinking about donating my body to science. ;)
#2 I really did win two copies of Liar Society, one from Kimberly Derting (which I decided to keep for unforseen future purposes, mwah ha ha), and one from Elana J's blog (which I graciously declined). Of course, I was already knee-deep in the nook version by the time I learned that. :P
#3 Toes still blue. Krispy had the lead on that one.
#4 Ah, Melissa, you clever boots, you sensed my lie right off the bat. I've never even been skiing or snowboarding. I actually hate the snow. And I'm a little ashamed I didn't do more research on this lie, being as how I love research and am usually a stickler for accuracy. So there you go, folks, behold the power of proper research.
#5 I confess I have a deep love for organ meat. I was born in Germany (thanks to my Army Dad), and my German godparents were always feeding me weird meats and wursts and things. And no, I don't speak German anymore, even though I grew up speaking both German and English. So yes, I love sweetbreads, headcheese, and liver paté.
Okay, now that's done, on to the main event!
There was a lot of rain the rest of the weekend—no surprise there—but Sunday was beautiful, so I wanted to share some pics from the Thoth (pronounced Toe-th) parade.
Here's a pic of me on a ladder enjoying the view! Ignore my flipped out hair, it was under a hat all morning. Until the sun came out, it was pretty chilly.
Aren't they gorgeous? Burled (or boiled, however you want to say it) by my own sweet husband. Delicious! And yes, that's pineapple you're seeing in the bottom left. Spicy, juicy love!
Well, it's good bye carnival season, hello festival season! We've got the Tennessee Williams Literary Festival coming up (which I will post about at the end of this month), French Quarter Fest, JazzFest, Seafood Festival... it goes on and on, which is part of the reason I love living here.
Hope you liked my Mardi Gras pics. I had a blast. I wish all y'all could have been here with me!
