Utter Disillusionment

Are you serious?

How did I not know?

Why did no one tell me?

Where I have been for the past 30 years?

This is devastating.

An entire day which I could reasonably and rationally devote to eating donuts and/or pancakes...

And I had no idea.  Honestly.  I had no idea today was referred to as Donut Day...Pancake Day...Paczki Day.  No.  Idea.

Talk about disillusionment.  I feel like I've been lied to.  Nothing makes sense anymore.  Up is down, left is right.

And now I'm wondering what else I don't know about. 

Are there other things I don't know about? Please, tell me, blog friends! Don't leave me here in the dark! No matter how much you think it may hurt me - if there's something I don't know, something which could potentially change my life for the better, especially if it has to do with delicious food, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT'S HOLY, TELL ME!!!

Please.  Don't make me find out on the street.  I'd rather hear it from someone who cares.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

And now you'll have to excuse me. 

I have 30 years worth of donuts to catch up on.

I know I'm a little late on this, but....

Every ethnicity has their own story here, it would seem. German Americans call it Fastnacht Day. The child who sleeps in the longest on this day is jokingly called "Fastnacht" for the rest of the day. This losely translates to Shrove Tuesday or Carnival Tuesday, which Americans simply call Fat Tuesday. You may know it as the day before Lent, when everybody shoves their faces with foods that they are about to give up until Easter. :)

I'm writing for you. I'm speaking to you.

So I would like to hear from you in return. Did that story make you laugh, or think? Does that recipe look good? Do you relate to me or totally disagree?

Let me hear what YOU think!
