I am so special, so special.. so special..

TRIBERS finally got the email on distribution yesterday, and even though I already had this information I was quite intrigued by this bit of info:

TRIBE is having a DISTRIBUTION LIME! I see they will be offering "section cocktails" plus eats... nice one, since distribution isn't the liveliest of processes!

In addition a lil birdie whispered to me that ALL Front Line masqueraders will be getting something a little extra special in their costume box this year! Aren't we special?

Anyway I am liking the little extras that TRIBE is putting out for their fifth year anniversay, I am just hoping that the "rolling road party" promised has even MORE "GOOD" surprises for us masqueraders!

Congratulations to our winner!!!!

The winner of a Silver Pair of Picadilly Boots is:

Christina Mc Elhone

Christina submitted the best 100 words stating why BOOTS are the best choice for Carnival, I thought it was quite witty and she was also one of the few that actually stuck to 100 words:

"Chipping down da road" in my mas boots! Reasons why meh mas boots are the way to go: They lasting right through, from "J'Ouvert Morning" to "Las Lap" evening taking the "presshah" off my feet. The little raise they give me helps my "Heavy-T Bummpa" keep shape and looking fine on the road. I doing my "jab jab" "hard wine" all in "wining time" with my "rum and roti" in hand. When I whining on my man these boots give me "cold sweat" and the comfort they give me ensures that I am "not going home till the morning comes!!"

Second prize winner of two pairs of DUPE flip flops is:

Sada Creese
Boots are the preferred choice for masqueraders because it adds a dimension of daredevil satisfaction and rebellion for the wearer. It is not the preferred wear for other occasions (in Trinidad) because it prompts a people to ask “Does she feel she in d cold or wah?” However at Carnival time, that time where one can feel absolutely free to express their fashionable yet unique individuality while feeling comfortable in a pair of Piccadilly boots, the self-consciousness temporarily disappears and the beauty of Carnival appears like a natural mist, evoking euphoria.
