Transcript Mardi Gras in O.B. Dolph Chaney Junior creative writing major, wolfs down a piece of king cake as Angela Lashbrook, senior Spanish major, details some of her Mardi Gras exploits. Photo by Danny Dalstra. Mardi Gras, or in En glish, Fat Tues day, is the last day before Lent, a period of fasting. Catholic people take this opportunity to have one last feast of sweets or other decadent treats before they enter the 40 days of fasting and reflections on the sacrifices Christ made. University of Houston students are eager to participate in the revelries of Mardi Gras celebrations. R.A. Angela Lashbrook was aware of this sentiment and hosted a Mardi Gras celebration in her room in O.B. Hall on Tuesday, February 15. Several residents dropped by Lashbrook's room to see what she had to offer for those who took part in the celebration. Lashbrook told them tales of her own Mardi Gras exploits and displayed beads that are often thrown from the huge floats that characterize Mardi Gras parade. She also displayed cups that she had gotten while attend- 154 63) ing Mardi Gras festivities. Lashbrook also brought to residents the tradition and story of the "king cake." In days of old, when people tried to get rid of all their sweets before Lent, they would bake these king cakes. Later, the tradition of placing a small, toy baby in the cake would emerge. Whomever gets the piece of cake with the baby would have to buy the next cake. Lashbrook was happy to reveal her motive for bringing Mardi Gras here. "I became interested in Mardi Gras when I attended the New Orleans festivities," she said. When asked what Mardi Gras and it's celebration meant to him, Dolph Chaney, junior creative writing major, replied cryptically, " To those who know, the knowing is not knowing what is to be known but what was to have been known." - LaGuana Gray PAQUIRRI Y1YO-R SORO North Tower 2nd Floor- Barbara Simon, Valerie Butler, Gretchen Haynes, Heather Del Verne, Shirley Hollingsworth, Evelyn Robins, Regena Jackson, Cindy Bryan, Kady Boyd, Pleschette Fontenot, Amanda Square- Briggs.
