Fat Tuesday

In celebration of Mardi Gras, some people go to New Orleans. The rest of us can get free pancakes at the IHOP. You can go anytime between 7am and 10pm on tuesday february 24th for your short stack, all they ask is that you consider making a donation to a children's hospital through the Children's Miracle Network or another local charity. You can find out the details and an IHOP near you here: http://www.ihoppancakeday.com/

I'm not really a pancake person, so I'll have to think of my own way to celebrate. Any ideas for a Compact-y Fat Tuesday? Is that a contradiction in terms? By the way, Compact-y is my new favorite word. As far as I know, Katy Wolk-Stanley over at The Non-Consumer Advocate (my favorite blog) coined the term. Check out her excellent blog: it's entertaining, thought-provoking, and funny. She's been a member of The Compact since 2007. I just joined this year.

How will you celebrate Fat Tuesday's, if at all?
