Topless Mardi Gras
If I was still living in Pennsylvania, today I'd be celebrating Fasnacht Day with a few high-fat lumps of dough shaped into rings and wishing I could have even more. Instead, I live in Maine and went with the all-America holiday of National Pancake Day (AKA Shrove Tuesday) by having lunch at the International House of Pancakes (iHop). Mom had a waffle and pancakes. My brother had a burger and pancakes. No, I didn't have pancakes. I really don't like them much. Sort of in the spirt of the thing, though, I sniffed the maple syrup and stole a bite from every plate of pancakes on the table then tucked into a delicious country fried steak with sausage gravy, buttery mashed potatoes, and crisp steamed broccoli.
Normally, Mardi Gras is not my thing and I don't do anything for Lent starting on Ash Wednesday, but since others seem to like a party and it is Topless Tuesday, I'd say it was worth a picture, at least. Check out more in the Topless Tuesday in SL Flickr group.
