Consoling Myself

Well, it's Fastnacht Day and I can't make any fastnachts because I don't have a functioning stove.

It's Carnival Tuesday in Trinidad and i can't be there enjoying the sun and music.

I'm just going to console myself by staying in bed this morning and playing with my new laptop.

I had my first fastnacht a couple months ago and they are damn yummy,

No functioning stove? Ouch. Time to bust out the grill. Drive your neighbors nuts with the aroma of sizzling steaks!

Or something.

New laptops are so much more fun than functioning stoves.

Well, we had our paczkis this morning, but we cheated and store-bought 'em. . .

But a new laptop is good. . .

It will always be Shrove Tuesday to me, even though I've long since left the church.

I'm sure you played with that laptop till you were totally sick of it, and now you won't touched it again for two or three days! Is that you? It would be me I think! - Dave

Ah. . . 'Consoling [Your]self'. . .

Good one! I get it!

'Cuz, like a computer has a console, and you got one for yourself! And the whole 'double meaning' thing, 'cuz yer life has been crazy, and you could use some 'consolation'. . . I get it!

(Just three days late. . .)

Never saw a fastnacht. But I'm sure I'd rather eat one than be one.

A new laptop!!!! Can I come over and play?
