10:59 AM: Anybody who’s anybody is doing the Hokey Pokey right now.

10:53 AM: JayCee just got done checking out the Fourth Annual Family-Friendly Mardi Gras. “Best chili dogs in Lafayette,” they say. There’s one way to prove that for sure. (Check ’em out in Downtown Lafayette across from the Federal Courthouse.)

10:20 AM: A couple gals from Tyler, TX were just telling JayCee out on the parade route why Mardi Gras is their favorite holiday.

Why? “It’s the only holiday where you can wear martini glasses as a bra.”
