ok well I will tell you all how I know I have Carnival fever – you see I at home trying on my Monday wear (time reaching midnight) when I hear knocking at my door – I figure it the girl who live across the hall (the trini who just stock me up on fruta), so I simply throw my bath robe on top of my costume and answer the door – this girl looking at me like I mad in my head asking where I am going, this prompts me to look down and what to I see upon my feet – my damn running shoes!!! Oh how I and everyone else heard about my mad self from she for days LOL

Now I know I have Carnival fever!!!! Well that and that fact that I flying down in 3 weeks to work on my base tan. I am scared to see how I will be the 10 weeks between the time I come back from TnT till Carnival hit – ALL BE WARNED AND STAY CLEAR :)
