And if you people really want to try to arrange something like an "Iwaku-trip" to Mardi Gras, go ahead. From what I've seen & heard; Mardi Gras is all about drinking, dancing, fucking, smoking and getting robbedhaving fun. Just don't make it seem like you're already there if you want something arranged and organized, shit gets retarted otherwise.
I'd say you get a "pardon" either way, Ryker. We're only young once.
We'll just all try to avoid any negative life altering effects whilst enjoying ourselves, yeah? Which reminds me. If you don't want to hook up with anyone while you're there, or just want someone to look out for you, it'd probably be best to raise such concerns at the beginning so people can keep an eye out for you.
I'll remember such a statement no matter how fucked up I get for instance, so I'm willing to chaperon. In fact I might even take it easy for that specific reason depending who goes.
