will: "is that a richard prince?"
maux: "i don't know who richard prince is. i just googled nurse pirate."
(why? because i was thinking about dream jobs.)
i have schooled myself. now i know who he is. this is richard prince:
Richard Prince is obviously a Cherry Ames fan too!
this is exactly what i wear to work, down to the sheer hose, white pumps, and hand cocked on hip attitude.
here is our dead bug. it's just printed on regular good quality printer paper, taped together on the backside, and tacked to the wall in the four corners. it would be better mounted on foam board or cardstock, but, ya know. will printed it with black and white ink on cream/yellowish paper so it would look old and sepia toned.

open road, convertibles.
kayak rolling. not in a pool.
rope swings, mountain lakes.
waterskiing ladies. and one pieces.
favorite swimming spots. this is my seattle favorite.
2. dinner with Will & Rob at Nickel Diner, downtown LA.
Three words: bacon covered donut. Three more words: you want one.
3. Maux, driving home, sees some guy riding his bike through the middle of an intersection doing a wheelie and spinning his handlebars around while doing so. Speaks outloud to herself in the car: "Look at this freaking jackass in the middle of the street. Cool handlebar tricks you hipster." It was not a hipster. It was Rob.
4. Rob & Maux recline on couch drinking beers while Will is dispatched to put on some music. Moments later the apartment is filled with strange, hypnotic sounds.
Maux: "Will, what is this? It sounds like baby whales singing."
Will, scoffing: "well, I doubt these are the babies."
all of the above, including downloaded singing whales, PLUS flight of the conchords reruns ("we came, we saw, we conchorded"), AND proving to the boys that i do in fact have a collection of newspaper clippings about men who died immediately after bowling a 300 = just another tuesday.

Maux: "well, the problem is that as soon as you said that it made me want to write a blog post about it."
elaine: "i forgot to tell you. we're going to san diego."
maux: "well, then so am i."

To make a picture mural like this one:
Is Reebok going to do for aerial circus arts what they did for Step Aerobics? I hope so.
I am so jealous of these people right now.

First, this came out in winter 2008. The long lost collaboration between Kerouac and Burroughs.
After reading it, I was inspired to read:
Interesting to note: in the original scroll, the aliases (aliai?) are not in place. Ginsberg is Ginsberg. And Then i wanted to see how it compared, so I re-read the original. And Then listened to it on cd while driving/moving from seattle to los angeles.
And Then (this is getting nerdy), I read Carolyn Cassady's book (Neal Cassady/Dean Moriarity's wife), aptly titled Off The Road, about what was going on at home with the kids while the men were out zooming across the country with other women.
p.s. carolyn cassady is a fellow university of denver alum.
