...when you have pancakes with silly hats and old people at an Anglican church? Today's Shrove Tuesday a.k.a. Fat Tuesday a.k.a. Mardi Gras, and so I went with Meg and Karl to their church's pancake supper and carnival. Good times. There were some awesome old people there: one lady was dressed up like a cowboy (with black polka-dots) and the old man serving the breakfast sausages had a straw hat with cloth flowers sprouting out of it. It was very surreal.
And then we watched the two hour finale of The Amazing Race. It was awesome, except for our favourite team coming in second place, because of a train suddenly going across their path! So close. It wasn't our least favourite team winning, but Kendra of the winning team made some racist comments in Dakar ("they keep breeding and breeding"). It seemed like going to Ethiopia after that changed her a lot (she had an asthma attack, and a bunch of children helped her out, even carrying her backpack for her), but still.
So, now I get back to work. New strategy: I'm dressed up, wearing make-up and heels, and I'm working at my desk. It helps that I'm all excited after the race, and I feel like I need to do things quickly.
