I write an event calendar for parties and celebrity events in LA and NY 
and am trying to figure out why in the world anyone throws a Mardi Gras 
party this late in the year?  Clearly, not observing Lent, but beyond 
that, the cycle is OVER.  It's like scheduling a Christmas party in 
January, just wrong.

I promise not to eat yummies in front of 'Lainie.  <hand over heart>

Perturbed, Selene
