Tornado Talk.

24 July 2008


tif: I WANNA SEE A TORNADO DAMN IT

ben: Don't say that!

tif: Why? We need some excitement round these parts. And it's the perfect reason to not
work.

ben: Fine. Keep them over there.

tif: I'll see what I can do. Just a small one... like a F1. Not a F4 or 5.

ben: You're an F6.

tif: That's because I'm off the charts!

Laaaaaaa La La La Laaa.

23 July 2008


I'm completely and utterly burnt out (creatively) right now. I'm dragging ass to finish a four-page layout. My brain has signed off. All I want to do is dance around to Crocodile Rock.

But the biggest kick I ever got
Was doing a thing called the crocodile rock


So freaking true.

And because the Muppets make everything that much better...

Horoscope of the Day.

21 July 2008


Rather odd and pertinent to how I feel today.
Your work activities get in the way of your real purpose today. It's not that you are a bad employee; it's just that right now your mind is not on pleasing your boss. You are ready for a real vacation or, at least, for a quick getaway to take your mind off the same old mundane tasks that prevent you from living out your fantasies.

Number One!

20 July 2008


Texas can claim the number one foam hand as their own. The foam hand isn't as old as I thought it would be. But the creator of the foam hand has a sweet story that involves rags to riches and that determined spirit for success.


In 1978 former high school teacher, geral fauss came up with the #1 foam hand, since then it has become a universal symbol for the phrase 'we're number one' and is among the most popular pieces of US sports merchandising.

The foam hand history.

(I couldn't resist posting the kapow in there.)

Red.

17 July 2008


I've had this un-gawdly itch to go back to red for the past year. I think I'm finally going to do it this weekend. I was holding back originally because I had worked so hard to get my natural back but since I already dyed parts of it brassy and that now needs to be gone, might as well go red. It's been over six years I think. A little scared.

Dark Knight.

I WANT TO SPOIL THIS FOR YOU!
BUT I WON'T.
YET.




Last night I attended the screening of the Dark Knight in IMAX and all I can say is "holyfuckingshitthiswasamazingandicannotbelievehowgreatitwasandicannotwaittoseeitagain."

That's all I will say for now.

Missed Connection: My Period (Crampsville
Date: 2008-07-03, 9:55AM EDT


I saw you a couple of months ago, but since then you haven't shown up at your regular place. Is there someone else standing in the way of us hooking up? Is there a fetus blocking you?

Please come back and show me you care. I can't rest until I know where I stand with you.

Bikini Man.



You haven't seen all that San Antonio has to offer until you've seen Bikini Man. Within the past few months I've noticed him more and more. Riding his bike, buying lumber and running straight into him at The Mix. It's a little hard to avoid him when you're on you way to re-open your tab for another Red Stripe and he's standing in the doorway. Blue package and all. I, personally, have never spoken to him aside from the soft spoken "excuse me" as I make my way to the bar. But he must be a great guy because he is always surrounded by friends. This little sideshow gave me more info on my mysterious Speedo wearing friend.

The story of Bikini Man.
