Bon temps

lassez03


Happy Mardi Gras, y'all! Last weekend at work someone brought in a King Cake, and I was shocked to hear how many people in Orlando didn't know what it was. I suppose we are a good ten hour drive East of New Orleans, but I thought Southern culture encorporated some of this… I guess not, eh? For those who don't know, it's an apple strudel made festive by a sprinkling of colorful rock sugar over the top. Within, there is a baby or a coin hidden, and it brings luck if you find it. I hope you all have your own ritual on this day, one final celebration before Lent.

So what are you giving up for Lent? I'm still undecided about this one myself…

I'm wearing gorgeous masks by Illusions in honor of the day. The red one is for men, the rest are for women, but my gay-as-a-peacock avatar can probably pull them off, eh? I love Siyu's ability to construct, and her ingenuity and attention to detail with these masks is truly outstanding. (SLURL to Illusions)
