orly? - adventures of a red-headed stepchild in the house of love
mermaid on the mic

funny thing... I feel fatter in town than on the playa. I'm sure this has nothing to do with the general lack of mirrors, and everything to do with the high prevalence of friends and people who generally give a damn about me camped nearby.

now that I'm back in town feeling fat again, and packing for a camping trip next weekend, this just strikes me as schizo.

dood... you have not been paying attention! yr very own HOTT lady has a set of similar (but more predominantly purple) HK hot pants of her own!

as a matter of fact, not long after this photo was taken, she rolled up to camp wearing 'em and we danced around together like giddy little schoolgirls!

I bet if you ask her nicely she'll bust 'em out for you.

Oh, I know all about Fourth of Juplaya Hello Kitty Hot Pants Day. And I am mighty appreciative of that part of her wardrobe!

It's true, Erich loves the Hello Kitty hotpants so much he learned how to say "hotpants" in Italiano (hint: il hotpants).

"il hotpants" - I love it!!! (then again, there could be "ILL hotpants" - maybe not so good...)

yeah, HK hotpants day was one of the high points of my trip! the funny thing is, my friends had me put 'em on for the photo, and then C-L (er, I mean you! sheesh, which comment am I responding to here anyway?) rolled up...! it was tits!!

i know what you mean about being in the city and feeling fat. when i'm out at faire i feel beautiful. when i'm at conventions i feel beautiful. in my every day...i feel like a fat ball of crappers. hopefully we can both change our view of ourselves and know that we *are* beautiful no matter what others think.

hope you had fun!

hahaha, nice butt!!! ;-)

yeah, con-space, campouts and the playa all seem a world apart from the judgmenatal "IRL" we are used to.

I do think that subcultures like burning man and furry are becoming ever more mainstream, so perhaps there is hope for a more tolerant zeitgeist!

1) Butt icons FTW!

2) Nobody can EVER say you're not fucking DOWN for your music. That tattoo is the bomb. Just sayin'.

why thank you! yeah, let me tell you, tattooing anywhere *near* the tailbone is just bad news. I was on the table gritting my teeth and thinking "I sure hope Disco appreciates this!" then again, it probably does. ;-)

I dont see anything in the pic other than a beautiful back that has been sunkissed maybe a bit too harshly. Sunburn=oww!

Oh, and the shorts are cute with the bright backsie mark. EEE!!!

Re: Huh?

thanks. :-) I somehow managed to get a lot of sun on my shoulders at the pirate festival despite slathering on sunblock as soon as we got out of the car, and now I have really dumb tan lines. oh well!

have fun out there this year.

Re: I think you look gorgeous!

why, thank you! it is certainly one of my favorite shots of me in recent memory. (most of my other faves, like the icon here, are older.)

this was taken just a few weeks ago at "4th of juplaya" - a non-organized campout on the Big Playa that seems to happen every year around 4th of july weekend. it was SO much fun! it pretty much made up for the fact that I am missing the Company Picnic for the first time since I started going in 1996. :-/

Best Tattoo EV4R

Holy cow I LOVE that tattoo on your lower back! That has to be one of the most fantastic things I've seen!
