Y@ Speak: It's Carnival time

comment


Last night was the Epiphany, meaning Carnival is officially here — and as you start your morning over your daily breakfast of cafe au lait and beignets, it might be tempting to contemplate your fleeting New Year's resolutions as they give way to the endless parade of office kitchen king cakes, daydrinking and other Carnival vices. But instead distract yourself with tweets about New Year's, the 60 Minutes special on the Times-Picayune, Downton Abbey and more. You always have Lent to repent.
