Sad.. I like to remember him this way (above)

Summer Plans

This weekend Greer, AZ for Ania's wedding. I'm a bridesmaid.. I've been having nightmares as well... me and Dana being late and my dress being see threw are a few of the dreams I've had. I'm sure Ania's even more nervous.
Chicago in July. Still trying to get Pitchfork Tickets for free.. anybody have connections? The two day passes are sold out. At least my plane ticket was free. I had a voucher from two years ago when Jaz and BK were going to take me with to Tulum, MX but the hurricane ruined that. It better not do that again tho bcuz...........
They are taking me with in August for this I will be the nanny for a week. I have to babysit the kids for 4 hours while Jazmine does yoga in the morning. Then I will sit on the beach and drink pina colada's. I hope I can entertain the kids (3 and 4 yr old) for 4 hours straight-any tips would be great!

Anybody else have any summer plans? I always say I want to travel more but I never seem to save any money. I'd still like to hit up so many places. I've been lacking on international travel these last few years. It's so hard to take long trips when you have 3 dogs. It's so hard for me to NOT collect dogs. I may have to sell the new car due to the huge paycut I just took at work. Bummer.. I just need to get Mone to FINALLY start working on my 4-Runner so I have another car if I do have to sell it. You know he's had it for over a year now and hasn't touched it. I guess I can't complain because he's fixing a blown head gasket for free and as long as he's in there he's going to put a new clutch etc.. etc.
If anybody works for a company that needs printing-we do it all-brochures, pocket folders, postcards, etc- my work is in desperate need of some jobs. I will try to get you the best deal possible and I can get commission if I bring in a job so any thing would help. I don't usually get commission bcuz I'm just the receptionist but if I bring in a job I will.

Rolling stones - Far away eyes

I was driving home early Sunday morning through Bakersfield
Listening to gospel music on the colored radio station
And the preacher said, "You know you always have the
Lord by your side"

And I was so pleased to be informed of this that I ran
Twenty red lights in his honor
Thank you Jesus, thank you lord

I had an arrangement to meet a girl, and I was kind of late
And I thought by the time I got there she'd be off
She'd be off with the nearest truck driver she could find
Much to my surprise, there she was sittin in the corner
A little bleary, worse for wear and tear
Was a girl with far away eyes

So if you're down on your luck
And you can't harmonize
Find a girl with far away eyes
And if you're downright disgusted
And life ain't worth a dime
Get a girl with far away eyes

Well the preacher kept right on saying that all I had to do was send
Ten dollars to the church of the sacred bleeding heart of Jesus
Located somewhere in Los Angeles, California
And next week they'd say my prayer on the radio
And all my dreams would come true
So I did, the next week, I got a prayer with a girl
Well, you know what kind of eyes she got

So if you're down on your luck
I know you all sympathize
Find a girl with far away eyes
And if you're downright disgusted
And life ain't worth a dime
Get a girl with far away eyes

"In a 1978 interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Jagger said, "You know, when you drive through Bakersfield on a Sunday morning or Sunday evening - I did that about six months ago - all the country music radio stations start broadcasting black gospel services live from L.A. And that's what the song refers to. But the song's really about driving alone, listening to the radio." On influences, Jagger stated "I wouldn't say this song was influenced specifically by Gram (Parsons). That idea of country music played slightly tongue in cheek - Gram had that in 'Drugstore Truck Drivin' Man', and we have that sardonic quality, too." Asked by the interviewer if the girl in the song was a real one, Jagger replied, "Yeah, she's real, she's a real girl."

Thanks Char!

Charlene sent me a care package full of goodies. I like to give the stickers out to kids-they are always so hyped on them. She also sent me the Where the Wild Things Are sweater she designed for the Crew of the film. I love getting packages in the mail.

Up on the Rim

Saturday my dogs and I drove up to the Mogollon Rim for a mini camping trip to join in on the celebration for Lee's bday.
Chi Chi found a lil patch of grass I love my mini espresso maker. Check Them Out


Wez's crazy button jacket.
My dog Atilla loves to smoke. If somebody is around her with a cigarette she'll follow them around and lick the smoke in the air.
the boys had this game where they'd tape the empty beer to the bottom of a new beer and by the end of the night the one guy had "wizard status" (charlene corrected me) . He drank 16 beers!!!! Skaters seem to always come up with these crazy beer games. I remember another beer game where they tape 40's to their hands and they call it Edward 40 hands or something like that. I can't play these games.
The dogs and I slept in the back of my lil car. Amazingly I can fit lengthwise w/o bending my legs. It was pretty comfortable.

A steagel (half steak, half bagel)

This was after Pringle threw a beer can into the fire and it exploded. crazy.

I can't believe this guy drank 16 beers. He said he's had 20 before. I'd be on the ground unable to walk prob after 5 beers. Pringle introduced me to a new drink. Whiskey and Apple Juice. It sounds gross but it really is delicious!
This guy Al was smart and brought light sticks and attached them to each of my dogs so I could keep track of them at night. Smart guy.

Wakey Wakey Eggs n Bakeeee
The beer snake.

We made a pit stop at Woods Canyon Lake on the way home.

You can't really see her but that splash mark in the water is Ruby. She thought this big tree that was sticking out of the water was the stick we threw for her to catch. She tried SUPER hard to pull the whole tree out of the water and it was pretty funny. She finally tired out and gave up. Poor thing.
This lil shit climbed up this cliff to the very top. She's a brave Chihuahua

The Mogollon Rim

He He.. an old Meat Store that was turned into an Adult Cabaret and they left the original sign.
