Hawaiian Shirt Burning


As promised, the Hawaiian shirt burning.

I wanted a controlled burn so I went to the only pro I know - former fireman Tommy Mack. I knew he could do the job and I figured he'd have a fireman hat to boot. I was right about both.


Abby D to the rescue!





I even got a firefighter patch after we finished. Just like the girl scouts but with beer. Good stuff.

Hawaiian Shirt Burning






Thanks Tommy Mack! You da bomb!



Burning stuff is cool. Burning stuff with hats is even cooler.

Breathtaking

Holy ginormous orange moon. Spun around on the pier and it literally took my breath away.

It continually amazes me how some things can be so beautiful...

Happy Solstice!



Sign surprisingly said "Peace on Earth". I expected "Will Pray for Beer".

Holiday Party Maddness


The coolest baby, EVER. Look at that beer grab!


The "My Little Miracle" trademark pose.






Holiday Party Maddness











Kayaked the tundra yesterday morning and finished off the evening with my last shift at Louie's. Oh and one more holiday party. Good lord, am I relieved to be finished at Louie's. For many, many, many reasons.

Party time is over - time to get back to work! In the meantime more ghetto-fabulous pics from the Lazy Dog party. That was such a good time.

IMovie Magic.

video

So I'm getting ready to work with video for a client. I started playing with Imovie which is a lot of fun and I can't wait to get into it all. It's been on the back burner for a while and is finally heating up.

To show this client I could figure out the editing process, I took an old video I shot last September of Lama G paining in the temple. I love his singing voice and he used to sing all the time while painting. So soothing...

It was shot on my tiny Cannon powershot camera. If I actually got a real video camera in my hands, imagine the possibilities. Crap, I love technology.

Speaking of cameras I just bought a cool new one to play around with as well. One I found on a blog and couldn't help but buy even after quitting. Oh, cameras of all types, how I love thee... You make me sooooooo happy.

The Quote of the Day is...

From our chef when I responded to someone calling me a "lady" in the kitchen.

"You're not a lady, you're a BROAD!"

Hell yeah I am, and this Broad is having a celebratory Hawaiian shirt burning in two weeks.

December 2nd - Oh Lord.



I first noticed Christmas music blaring in retail spaces and bars the last days of November. After stopping into a few places today to pick up some supplies, it was clear...

The Capitalism Clockwork Orange is upon us.

A few thoughts spring to mind while reaching for taco seasoning at the grocery store:

1) Did the U.S. government cultivate Christmas music as an anthem to subconsciously drill into people's head that they need to buy everything in their sight?

A very scary image of Alex from Clockwork Orange popped into my head. He was strapped in a chair with his eyes pried open watching a screen flashing all these things he thought he liked and wanted. Oh yeah...those are called commercials.

2) Did little baby Jesus want to be a showgirl? Does a Christina Aguilera Christmas song really portray the birth of a spiritual savior?

3) Why doesn't Key West have a Drag Queen manger scene? I bet the Virgin Mary would be fierce!

That's all for now. Time to go bedazzle my baby Jesus.
