Today is Ash Wednesday, so hats off (literally) for all who are celebrating.
This means I forgot yesterday was Shrove Tuesday. So I
missed Mardi Gras, and more tragically, Pancake
Tuesday, as I love pancakes. Well, I blew my chance to get plastic beads for
flashing my goods, but at least I can still get some pancakes, so I'll have to
content myself with that.
