not me, but yes it is one of my dream halloween costumes.
i don’t drink anymore for cinqo de mayo, i celebrate with mexican food, or as it’s known in mexico: ‘food.’
( festive artwork that was a precursor to the night’s joyful celebration)
seeing this painting upon entering the room
where my dear friend
finally had the chance
to have the wedding she’d always wanted
delayed by two long years of pandemic
i knew it would be a memorable celebration
that really lived up to the artist’s vision
and then some.
“all great celebrations break away from the mundane.”

this is someone else (who is not me)
goofing off to celebrate one holiday,
while actively ignoring the clutter of the other holiday.
how incredibly lucky
that right after i realized it is
‘clutter awareness week’
i found out it is also
‘international goof off week’
so i decided to go all in on the goof off celebration.
i’ve never been one to shy away from honoring a holiday
but i can only spread myself so thin.
happy holidays to those of you who celebrate one or both.
“but i love to feel events overlapping each other, crawling over one another like wet crabs in a basket.”

which one… which one… which two?…..
Fat Tuesday is here and bakeries and grocery stores area ready!
Paczki Day, also known as Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras, (leading into Lent, for those who celebrate), rolls around every year accompanied by its calorie-heavy treat. One Paczki is actually called a paczek, but you can never have just one. The fried doughnuts are known for their Polish roots. More traditional styles contain fruit fillings but jellies, custards, creams and glazes have made their way into the holiday.

in a snow bowl game
with rivalry roots from way back when
that hadn’t been won
the university of michigan over the ohio state university
in so many years
at last the wolverines bring a victory home
and with the win
michigan stadium is filled with jubilant fans
spilling out onto the field
and into the very, very happy town of ann arbor.
“you don’t have a real rivalry unless both sides are great teams.”

why limit happiness to just one hour?
note: happy hour began as an event in the military.
it is believed that the term comes from events organized
by a club called the happy hour social for the United States Navy in 1913.
“fair thoughts and happy hours attend on you.”
