Joe Gets A New Tattoo

On the bus to Central Square so Ian Adams can put a new tattoo on Joe.
Are my eyes even open?
I was so tired that I fell asleep in the tattoo place.
I'm sure I snored like a bull.

A new Joe Show!

Throwback Thursday: 2008

That time we had a house guest for a week.
I loves me some orange cats.
This orange cat loves him some Joe.

This photo was taken an hour after BaileyCat arrived.
Bailey and Joe had never met.
Joe makes everybody feel at ease right away.

Today I made a Tree Man out of Sculpey clay.
I use a big overturned ceramic mug as a sturdy base.

Top Ten Tiger Beat Stars, Redux

This one's for my girlfriends who were teenagers in the 80s, my big-haired Gen X comrades-in-legwarmers, my fellow teenyboppers, a delightfully shrill roving army on rollerskates that launched the careers of our Tiger Beat Star boyfriends. Oh yes, Rick Springfield, nee Springthorpe of Australia with the pouty lips and the bull terrier named Ronnie that you put on all your album covers, you're nothing without us! Same for you, Johnny Depp, Will Smith and all of these dreamboats whose faces wallpapered our bedroom walls. Pulpy pin-ups clipped from from magazines, all coiffed and pouting and posing along with deathly important articles such as, "Be The Girl Who Understands Him Best!" Let's call it something dumb that fits the topic, like Lexi's List of 80s Crushes Who Are Aging Gracefully.

I Met Peter Sagal

[Peter Sagal, Boston MA]
Two weeks ago I had a chance to meet one of my favorites, writer and public radio personality Peter Sagal. I was at a marketing conference, and to my utter delight I found that Mr. Sagal was going to deliver the final keynote.

I mean...what would you have done?

Invited this guy to share my table at Panera, since it's a 4-top and has an outlet.
Dude's been absentmindedly kicking the table leg for like two hours.
Trying to write here, Kicky McJitters, how about switching to decaf, son?
