Mardi Gras Parade, Updated
Everyone should come to this thing. It'll be great, and if it's like last year's parade, the whole thing is short enough that it goes around the block a coupla times so if you can view it more than once and, you know, revise your opinion of it as it goes by again. And you get enough beads thrown at you that at some point it becomes hazardous. Boy, what fun!
Meanwhile, the Godzilla-King Kong float is under construction in an abandoned body shop...
These are from more than a week ago. I understand Godzilla and Kong are much further along now and are practically ready to join polite society.

Is this for real??? I live right near there! And where are your posters put up? You know, just in case, well, one falls down as I'm walking by...
That poster would look great on my wall.
Parade too far away, alas.
Sure it's for real! They've been doing the parade for a number of years (not a large number, but still...) You're in Arlington, HereToday? Me, too.
And I'm pretty sure I can get some extra posters. I'll let you know.
I would pay for an autographed one. Really.
If you can get some extra posters ....
oh my gawd...I thought you were kidding about the float!
Ok, I'm there. Anyone want to meet up before hand for a drink?
