Having lived in New Orleans for the past four years it is very weird not to be properly celebrating today. There are no massive parades in Los Angeles (although there was a dog parade over the weekend at the Grove), the city is not shut down, and everyone still goes to work. Luckily for me my employer takes the day off so there is no pressure for me to work too hard.

The afternoon was pleasant so I went for a walk to make sure I cast my vote and when I returned I noticed a package on the stoop. My King Cake had arrived.

Despite having branded boxes (with beads and a Happy Mardi Gras wish) , FedEx managed to damaged the cake slightly. Still, the ingredients are still there so I'm sure it will be delicious.

On a side note, I realize I haven't posted in a while. I've traveled a bit and just got lazy about posting, my bad, I will try to make sure I put up more pictures and such.

Happy Mardi Gras!
