Fat Tuesday, Shenanigans & Stories
Are you doing anything for Fat Tuesday?
Any of this?
Beads + Alcohol can make people do crazy things.
Just ask Kitty.
I will not be going out to celebrate Fat Tuesday because I will be working. The thought of going out and having drunk 22 year olds slam into me in a bar, while spilling their cheap beer all over me, as I fight for parking, witness a few bar fights, and get asked to flash someone for a string of 3 cent beads doesn’t really sound like a good time to me. How about to you?
Ok, that makes me sound like a party pooper, doesn’t it. I promise I am not! Need I remind you about?
See, I can channel my inner wild child streak. It just isn’t going to happen Tuesday night.
What is going to happen is that I’m going to make some Coconut Rice with Garbanzos & Veggies (and Peanut Butter)
And I’d like to make some No-Bake Rum Cake Balls (Vegan, GF)
I also have a Caribbean-Themed Recipes Post so even if you’re not in the islands, not going out for Fat Tuesday, you can still bring the island fever into your kitchen.
From my last post, on Phobias & Fears, thank you for sharing what gives you the eebee-jebee’s. <—-Never typed those words before.
At least we can talk about what we’re fearful or phobic of, right? No shame in admitting what creeps me out, that’s for sure. Like some of the neighborhood animals I saw. It seems the post struck a nerve with you all too and the most frequently mentioned fears were: spiders, insects, big (unleashed) dogs, birds, snakes, worms.
I’d like to snack on one of these bars tonight. Rather than be in a bar.
No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Energy Bars (with optional coconut oil +protein powder; Vegan, GF)
Or maybe one of these bars.
Creme de Menthe Bars (Vegan, GF, No-Bake)
1. Are you going out for Fat Tuesday?
No, I’m working.
As an aside, I used to love the slushy drinks at the bar, Fat Tuesday. I lived near one in Minneapolis (inside the Mall of America) and also in Myrtle Beach, SC and their 190 Octanes were always fun. I only needed one.
2. Would you describe yourself as Love to Go Out and Party or Love to Stay Home and be a Homebody?
I am a mixture. When I was younger and before Skylar, I loved going out. But I also loved coming home, closing the door, taking off all the makeup and the smelly, smoky, going-out-clothes, and having quiet chill time at home. I have a strong desire to have calmness, order, and peacefulness when I am at home and I do love being a homebody. But it’s also fun to go out and whoop it up.
But with a child, working 50 hours a week, running a household, keeping up my blog, my workouts, cooking, cleaning, errand running, and life’s day-to-day tasks, there is very little whoop it up time for me these days. At least I have the memories. Wouldn’t trade them for the world.
3. What are you craziest going out stories, bar stories, or fun shenanigans?

Here’s one of mine…
My friend Amber and I went out for sushi years ago. We were minding our own business when a man sent over a bottle of wine and offered to pay for our very pricey sushi tab.
The lushes that we were The smart women that we were, we didn’t say no to the lovely bottle of wine and a free meal. However, nothing in life is free.
The man wanted our phone numbers, he wanted to date us, and we gave him the old, we need to use the restroom story. Once out of sight, we hightailed it out of the restaurant and across the parking lot (who says you can’t run in heels) and we were outta there! Thanks for the wine and sushi, sir.
What are your shenanigans and stories?
If you are going out Tuesday night, don’t drink and drive. And ladies: make sure your friends know where you are and stick together! Be safe out there!
