I hate it, but then I live here and have to deal with the traffic... You can't get anywhere. It takes two hours to go anywhere. People are drunk for an entire week (at least), which means everyone is obnoxious. And I will never understand the joy of screaming and hollering for a 2 cent bead. My husband drags me to at least one parade a year and I'm usually pretty miserable over it. LOL If I didn't take my vacation at other times of the year, I'd leave the city during Mardi Gras to avoid the insanity.
