Carnival Goings On

Carnival Goings On - 02/28/01 02:09 AM

Dateline: San Pedro, 6pm, Carnival. Hi everyone: A short report on the goings on on Barrier Reef Drive, Mardi Gras Day. Its a mess. We got a couple hundred kids, young and old, out here smearing themselves with paint. The good news is that, so far, us upright, serious "journalist" have been spared the indignities of the huddled masses. So far. More later, I'm going out, close and personal. Wish me luck!

Well Bill
Are your clothes stained beyond repair? I have a hard time imagining that your didn't get caught up in the moment and haul out your paintball gun yourself? Where was party central? Hope you had a good time.

Just recieved a report that one of the crazy kids with paint and eggs was my son Eric. Watch out! I heard he was loaded for bear!

There's more damage to the town center from Carnaval than Hurrican Keith... paint smeared and thrown everywhere! Signs, murals, windows, storefronts, post office boxes, tile and flagstone walks, street signs, EVERYTHING! It's a shame... like graffiti in the ghettos.

It happens every year. You should have seen a few years ago when all they had was oil based paint. What a mess! People were working it out of their hair for days.

Miracle of miracles. I attended the festival and nary one spec of paint soiled my impeccible clothing. Guess they thought I was "someone". Fooled them. Perhaps da sawed off shot gun may have helped. Now we wait for St Patrick's Day!! Belizians acting Irish, what a scene!

Hope,
I'll cross my fingers for you to be there the same time. That would be wonderful. The more the merrier.

I also agree with you..... Jane MUST be there. She's still working on Frank. [Linked Image]

f mentioned he'd like a vacation in april somewhere. so, i finally came out and asked last night. i did NOT get a positive response. in fact, it was closer to f**k off. dont worry gals, i dont give up that easily!! the trick is to let him think it is his idea...take it slow. and i'm pretty good at that. i still have time. he later apologized for his "abrupt" answer, and i said i'd drop it for now if he'd think about it. dont count me out yet!!! men hate to think we run things, don't they? (we know better!)

Jane,
*pouting* with a big lip, but not giving up!!!! Won't do that till I get there and don't see your smiling face. Yes. You have time...... Hubby wouldn't take me to Mexico one year... I said okay. That's fine. Then the travel agent returns one of my calls and he answeres the phone. He asks, "What's up with that?" I told him none of his business, you didn't want to go so I invited my sister and told him when we were scheduled to leave. He was pea green with envy and demanded I change my plans and take him. Never entered his mind that I'd consider going without him. Ha! [Linked Image]
