I have Mardi Gras brain right now. In case you're not from the South/don't know what that means, it means that my brain is not functioning if it doesn't have to do with Mardi Gras. We've been playing music quietly behind the desk in the morning to help us function, and today's music is straight Mardi Gras music.
Although I'm not headed down into New Orleans this year for the parades, and I haven't really been to any parades here (hello, school work), it's still one of my favorite times of year. I mean, does it really get much better than the 'drink every weekend, have a good time with family and friends, eat king cake every day' mentality?
Some of the songs we've been listening to are the Mardi Gras Mambo, They All Asked for You, Iko Iko, and There's No Place to Pee on Mardi Gras Day. There are so many different, fun Mardi Gras songs that you hear walking down the parade route, but those are some of my absolute favorite.
So now, I'm going to go and attempt to concentrate in my last few classes before driving three hours down to Cocodrie (I can't even contain my excitement!).
