    . . . I love his song American Girl . . .

    Not only am I not familiar with Tom Petty, but none of his music sounded familiar or interesting to me, either. I don't mean to offend any of his fans, but I thought his music was bland but, maybe it's just me.

    I have always LOVED his music, but have thought he shares a slight resemblance to Riff Raff of Rocky Horror Picture Show.

    I do like him better without the beard he was sporting last night though.

    Tomorrow is Fat Tuesday right? I'm really in the mood for pancakes, so am trying to think of a good excuse to have them for dinner, but maybe I can wait until tomorrow and tell everyone its in preparation for Lent. Which they will all ask me "what's lent?" because we're not Catholic. But I do rememeber fondly the pancake breakfast we got on Fat Tuesday at Catholic school. However, the nuns did NOT call it "Fat" tuesday.

    Easter's early this year hmmmm?

    Heh. I used to have a wicked crush on Tom Petty, but that was back in the "Refugee" days. I also really, really wanted to go to his concert here - it's in August and the tickets went on sale today - but $99 each is just too much.

    Oh, excellent. I've been having a huge hankering for pancakes lately, and I feel entirely comfortable using my lapsed Catholicism as an excuse to dine on them. And then I will go whole hog (no funny comments, please :nono) into Lent. Let me see...I believe I shall give up all sweets for Lent, with the sole exception of sugarless Werthers (need them to keep me from smoking).

    Thanks for the reminder, mrd. I haven't been keeping up with the calendar.

    Geez, I saw him in 1980 and I think I paid $10. Stevie Nicks made a surprise appearance at that concert.
    My favorite songs of his don't get much if any airplay. I like Southern Accent and You don't know how it feels. I like all his stuff, but those are my 2 favorites.

    I think possibly the first song of his I heard was Breakdown and this had to be back in the 70's because it was before Refugee.
    Damn the Torpedos was a great album.

    Easter is quite early this year. It's the 23ish of March. Tomorrow's Shrove Tuesday and then Wednesday's Ash Wednesday. For me that means no meat of any kind of Wednesday. So I'll be having some type of seafood. If I were at home, it'd be fish and chips! But since I'm here, it'll most likely be some type of shrimp dish I cook up. I'd love to do pancakes, but no mix and it's not worth buying for one.

    Easter is early, and by luck of coincidence we loose a free day. Normally we get both May first and Ascension Day off but this year they coincide and we loose one day off . I hear the odds on that are very, very low...

    But tomorrow, for Mardi Gras, we'll make the traditional Swedish "Semla". A wheatbun cut in (almost) half, with a layer of almond icing and one layer of whipped cream in it. After you put the top half on you sprinkle it with icing sugar. Delicious .
