Summer Is Almost "Ghost"

Today was yet another day declared "A Great Day to Be Outside" for the mainstream public.  I am a firm believer in being outside (although the weather is rarely a consideration for Dad as he knows nothing of staying warm, dry, or safe) and that while outside one should take advantage of the opportunity to celebrate Nature's kindness. 

The "artifacts" in the pictures above were possibly the fruits of said celebrations.  A personal favorite is the "Easy Chair with Box of Empties."  Imagine the fun you could have with a case of wine and a recliner in an alley next to a dumpster.  Somebody did imagine all the fun, then went that extra mile and actually HAD FUN. 

The picture on the bottom is some Raw Vegan Sushi I made for part of a friend's photo shoot.

An observant Reader pointed out some glaring exclusions from my "tribute to P. Swayze" blog a few days ago.  Bullshit.  Write your own goddamn tribute. 

Until next time...Stay Classy, Interweb!

A World Without Swayze.

Today a great celluloid luminary passed from our plane of existence.  The man who cried "WOLVERINES" while taking out a Soviet attack helicopter with an AK47 shall cry no more.  No one is left to protect Baby from being placed in the corner she so doesn't deserve to occupy.  The throats of errant scalliwags misbehaving in roadhouses are safe once more. The man who taught us there are only two emotions has created a third in our hearts, Loss (which according to the Love/fear matrix is very far to the "fear" side of things).  Patrick has joined Chris Farley in that great Chippendales tryout in the sky. 

Rest In peace Mr. Swayze. You fought long enough.
