Happy Lundi Gras aka Shrove Monday aka The Day Before Mardi Gras

Today, while all my friends are out acting a fool in New Orleans, or vegging out on the couch I'm sitting at work attempting to get things done for school while a monsoon is taking over outside. Now, we've got off school until Wednesday at 1:30, so I'll be making it worth my while. 

Now, don't get me wrong, if I wasn't at work I wouldn't be doing much else. You see, I love Mardi Gras, it's one of my favorite times of year, but I also was born and raised in southern Louisiana, going to every parade we could get to growing up. So if I have to skip one year, no skin off my nose (plus it's GOING to rain; this whole '60%' thing is just code for please still come down and party with us). Plus, I went down there Saturday (but more on that later). 

So for now, I leave you with my favorite performance from last nights awards...well one of them, because let's be honest. How can you pick just one? 

What was your favorite performance if you watched?
