Well, Carnival ’08 came and went. I enjoyed myself and drank far too much.
Carnival Sunday night (Dimanche Gras night) I was in Woburn until the wee hours. I couldn’t face Jouvert (I’m old!) so I went home and caught this sweet shot of daybreak creeping over the mountains while the jabjab jumped up in town..
And DIS IS JAB-JAB!!!!
“spit it out.. spit it out…” Hilarious!
I took Little YY to the National Stadium on Monday afternoon to catch a part of the Fancy Mas Competition. We didn’t actually go into the Stadium but stayed outside jamming to the music and dodging the rain.

And a little video –
Monday Night Mas met me in bed but the music was slamming! I heard the bands were gigantic!
On Carnival Tuesday I took Lil YY down to look at the final Parade of the Mas Bands on Lagoon Road.

And for some video –
Girl on girl wining (!!)
Stunner, this is for you!
Pan. Sweet Pan! Republic Bank Angel Harps, panorama champs.
And some controversial religious peeps who decided to “take back” Carnival for Jesus. *eyeroll* More like just looking for an excuse to jump up in the road if you ask me!
The Soca Monarchs were Luni Sparks & Electrify repeating their win from last year. Clear de way is here. The Road March was won by Miney, singing 10,000 Masqueraders. (Doesn’t she sound a bit like Destra?) I liked both those songs so I’m happy. I haven’t the foggiest idea who won Calypso Monarch though.
So that’s it. Carnival 2K8 is over and looking forward to next year already. Meanwhile poor me is trying to start a detox programme before my liver explodes (but ending in time for Christmas boozing festivities *wink*). 😀
