MONDAY 4TH MARCH 2019

ON ASH WEDNESDAY IN MADRID, THERE’S A PARADE CALLED ‘THE BURIAL OF THE SARDINE’ (YES, IT’S EXACTLY WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE), MARKING THE END OF CARNIVAL SEASON AND THE START OF LENT. ‘MOURNERS’ DRESSED ALL IN BLACK (NATURALLY), CARRY A LARGE PAPIER-MÂCHÉ SARDINE (OFTEN IN A COFFIN, OR - RATHER TERRIFYINGLY, IN MY OPINION - LEAPING OUT OF ONE) THROUGH THE STREETS WHILST MOCK-WEEPING AND WAILING. TO QUOTE: “IT SEEMS QUITE A GLAMOROUS FISH”

ESSENTIALLY, IT’S THEN A BAR CRAWL FOR WINE AND TAPAS UNTIL THEY (PRESUMABLY PRETTY PISSED BY NOW), REACH THE “BURIAL GROUND”, WHERE THEY LIGHT TORCHES, PROMPTLY BURN THE THING AND PROCEED TO GET ROYALLY FUCKED. BRITISH FUNERALS ARE SO DAMN BORING - COUNT ME IN FOR THE FISH TREATMENT! - VIA (I SHIT YOU NOT) AN INSUREANDGO ADVERT AT THE BEGINNING OF THE COMEDIAN’S COMEDIAN PODCAST’S FIRST EPISODE WITH TODD GLASS!

AND

THE WORLD DIDN’T NEED ANOTHER AGENCY. IT NEEDED TO MEET SOME INCREDIBLE WOMEN. TODAY MARKED THE LAUNCH OF THE UNINVISIBILITY PROJECT. AND IT’S JUST AWESOME. JANE: YOU ARE A FUCKING LEGEND - VIA FORMALLY “INVISIBLE” BADASS WOMEN EVERYWHERE… #IWD2019 #LEADTHECHANGE #BETHECHANGE #ROLEMODELLING #DISRUPTAGING
