The Jolie Pez Project: Jolie a la Mardi Gras: The MuseQuest – 2012Posted: March 5, 2012
The Jolie’s adventures continue with a trip to LA. Since we last saw her in California, she thought that meant Los Angeles. She was very happy to find herself in Louisiana in time for Mardi Gras! Her host for this visit is long time Blurt reader, Jane. Jane offered to have the Jolie down for Mardi Gras last year, but schedules didn’t really line up. Thank you to Jane for sticking with us and having her stop by this year!
That didn’t get in the way of a good party, though. In keeping with her celebrity status, the Muses decided to include her in their official ride through the city.

“I need to cross the bayou to get to headquarters.”
“These huge geese are nothing compared to nesting gators. How can I get across?”
“I can use one of the stunts from my movies to leap this bayou.”
“Those woods don’t scare me.”
“Let me through, you blue giant!”
The welcoming committee served a traditional King Cake in honor of her arrival: That’s where she rescued the first baby.
“I’ll have to buy the next King Cake, but I can’t let that stop me from rescuing babies. Whoever will adopt this child?”

“I need to load the beads on this float, but who’s that huge woman in the distance flashing her boobs like that? Is she talking to me?”
“Oh yeah, Ms. Censored? You think you’re all that? Well, watch this!!
“Damn!” What idiot in wardrobe painted this shirt on me? Heads will roll for this!!”
Thursday, February 16, p.m.
“Goddess Nectar? Give me one of those, and one for my backpack, too.”
“That ‘goddess nectar’ has given me the strength to throw beads that are as big as my head. Can YOU do this Ms. Censored???”
“Where are my bodyguards?”
“Oh NO! Paparazzi! All I want is to have a little fun. I’m really just a Mom, you know!”
“What’s that on his head??? Is that a baby in your head piece??? Hey, give me that, Mister!”
“Don’t worry little one, I’ve got you now! Why are you in a takeout carton from ‘Wombs to Go’, anyway?”
“That goddess nectar has given me great strength and the ability to dance, dance, dance!”
“Yeah, I’m dancin’, yeah . . .”
February 17, 3:45 a.m.
Lagniappe: The Jolie had no idea that “goddess nectar” has the power to turn frogs into princes.
The Jolie is now accepting applications for adoption of the King Cake baby.
What an adventure! Thank you to Jane and the Krewe of Muses for having The Jolie as a guest.
As always, you can find all The Jolie’s adventures here.
A little administrative business – I’ve kept a list that I’ve used to keep the Jolie moving around. The list has a lot of people I haven’t heard from in a bit, so I’m asking all who are still waiting and those who haven’t spoken up yet to please let me know in comments or email. Thanks!
