i broke down and bought a plain black fez, because as nice as they are, the fez-o-rama fezzes (fezi?) are specifically not available without some kind of goofy logo on them, and so far they haven’t produced a goofy logo that i feel is representative of me (at least not all the time)… but i still really like wearing a fez, for a variety of reasons. the logical alternative, at this point, is to acquire a blank fez, and, with the help of Master Payne, (who gave me the secret information needed) i have now done just that. expect pictures when it arrives. 8)
i still haven’t gotten started painting my car. i’m pretty close to it, though, but i had better get some paint on it pretty soon, because SACBO is coming sooner than expected: i.e. the 16th, and not the 23rd, as i had thought originally… although, strangely enough, i’m only going to be able to make one day at the fair, because i have two snake suspenderz gigs the second day of the fair, and one of them is at a competing fair in burien – the wild strawberry festival (the other one is at the can can, with the wanderlust circus). fortunately, i, literally, “have to have some paint on it” to get into the fair, so i think i’m going to be able to come up with something.
cedar (the person, not the tree: son of reverend chumley) and i removed the large juniper bush at the top of the driveway last weekend. he took pictures, but i (for some reason) did not. now we have a twenty-foot crater where the bush was, and moe and i are discussing what to replace it with. the current fanasy is bamboo (i would actually like to rip out all of the juniper and replace it with a bamboo hedge), but that’s likely to change. i’ve made tentative arrangements with cedar (the person) to come back at some point and trim the cedar tree at the bottom of the property. i found out it’s a deodar cedar, which is the basis for a lot of tibetan incenses, so it’s my guess that, if i do it right, i will probably be able to end up with a fair amount of deodar resin incense after all this is over.
