miscellany monday

happy monday everyone – i’ve added my random ramblings to carissa’s miscellany monday party!  check out carissa’s blog here and join in on the fun. 

{one} mardi gras.  do you celebrate mardi gras?  i celebrate it every year.  i mean, i don’t go to new orleans each year to party it up, but i usually try to have a last hurrah.  i eat a meal or food that i won’t be able to eat for the next 40 days.  sounds tough right? mardi gras is french for “fat tuesday,” referring to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the lenten season, which starts on ash wednesday.  lent is a 40-day period of piety, repentance and introspection as christians reflect upon the coming easter holiday.  this year ash wednesday falls on march 9, 2011, so tomorrow is fat tuesday.  if you want to learn more about the lenten customs, please check out this catholic update newsletter (here).  i’m looking forward to tomorrow because one of my co-workers is bringing in a yummy king cake.  i can’t wait to feast on this cake with a nice hot cup of coffee. 

{two} my 15k.  i’m getting ready for my 15k this weekend.  i plan to run again tomorrow and wednesday and then i’ll take a break for a couple days.   i can’t believe that the race is already here.  i’ll let you all know how i do. 

{three} the bachelor. so, i’m a little obsessed about the bachelor.  next week is the finale, but today is the reunion episode where the rejected bachelorettes tell all.  the previews look really juicy and i’m pretty sure that it will not disappoint. 


  1. Good luck on your upcoming 15K! That's a big deal!

    As for the Bachelor, I think I am seriously the only gal in the world who doesn't watch!

  2. Thanks Lisa...I'm getting a little nervous about the race. And I don't normally watch the Bachelor, but there was something about this season.
