Today is J'Ouvert, meaning "The Opening" or "The Beginning". If you would like to hear about last Carnival, go back to last February 2nd-6th or thereabouts. And please, search "Trinidad Carnival" and check it out!
I should be playing J'Ouvert, but I pinched a nerve in my neck this week and this year, I am playing "Pretty Mas". So trying not to overdo it. Yet. Will overdo it later today. J'Ouvert is nasty mas: mud, grease, paint, sweat. Pretty mas is bikinis, body glitter, makeup and sweat. And that's where I'll be as soon as I can get Rachel and Beans to wash their mud off and get pretty!
Theresa, we miss you.... Go on, post some pictures from year-before-last and get in the mood. You'll be here next year, okay?
We are going to dance all day today and tomorrow, and I am going to look like a million dollars because Debs made me a whole new top that FITS and is SKIMPY and Beans brought gel inserts for that extra-boob look. Some of us need help, y'know?
I can hear the music truck coming....
