Merry-Land - and BellyButtons

So I am back at work. Definitely did not take enough time off..... but have you ever known me to sit still very long? Booked a trip down to Maryland and DC area days after the surgery, very last minute. Figured that if I could suck in my stomach and pretend to be pretty for awhile, I could raise enough money to move down to Austin in November..... so far, so good....

Been an incredibly busy week, hope you have not held it against me - Have not been able to blog in quite awhile..... Stopped in Harrisburg on my way down here, shot with a 20 year old named Corwin Prescott... He is the cutest little thing ever - right out of photography school, sporting a Gilligan's Island hat. IrisSilks hired me for their new line of PJs. Went out to dinner with SlyHorse Studio.... Kevin, the owner who runs the studio has literally changed the MD/DC/VA area so much by setting that place up - All the amatuer photographers who used to shoot with in their dirty creepy livingrooms, now pay the $35 an hr fee for the studio.... Few days ago, I shot with Antar, a 23 year old photographer here in MD who actually knows the lyrics to the Little Unicorn soundtrack... yup, that is correct... AND Antar is not a homosexual....! Totally rocked out those tunes.... while his MUA kept saying, "Stop moving, stop it, stop moving..." And the music kept playin.... Last night I worked with Mickle Design Werks till about midnight, we got some beautiful images that I am really proud of..... I just love that he gets to work with Mosh so much, we looked at pretty Mosh photos all evening, and I was so happy....

My mornings here always start late - Like right now, it is 2pm and I am still in bed, eating a peach, trying to figure out if I want to go to the costume store and buy a wig or if I want to continue to lie here and eat this peach? ..... Peach wins..... I love coming to MD because I stay with my friend Richard, he lets me lay around the house all morning....

Have to tell you this!! So earlier this week I worked with a model who kind of looked like me. Same height and weight, tiny waist.... I was amazed and blurted out something stupid like. "Wow, I never meet girls who are built like I am..." And she goes, "Oh hunny, no no no - I am not natural! Got my waist through liposuction - see *she pulls her thong down and points adamently to an indentation just above her pubic hair* See that? That is my real bellybutton, the one right here *pointing to the middle of her stomach* is fake. They had to make that one..." Wow, so let it be known that.... fake bellybuttons are just as creepy as real bellybuttons....

London, PLEASE take it easy! We dont want to hear you getting dinged up again. But... God bless you. You don't let the dust settle. Moving to Texas. Well, whats New York's loss, is Texas' gain. I'm a bit jealous. From what you have told us about Texas, it sounds wonderful. If you can get away with starting your day late, do it. Yes, mornings can be beautiful, but also aggrivating as all hell.
I've said this before, & I'll say it again: London, when don't you look good? Why pretend to be something you already are? Please be careful. :)

I am taking it easy, well in my 'own' way.... like.... I don't carry my own bags up the stairs this week... : )

Texas is wonderful... well, except Dallas, Houston, Odessa, and El Paso... but the rest of it - is golden.... : ) Austin is particularly an oasis in the middle of the state. If you ever go down there, and I actually find this 'job as a bartender' that I keep talking about - you are more than welcome to pick up a few free drinks at my bar.... ha

CORWIN! Adore is the best word for him.... god, he is talented. And so shy and cute and huggable looking in his little skipper hat.... Heard he traveled all the way out to Brooklyn to come visit you. See, now that is love... whew!

As (almost)to be expected,

up, stick out the head,...

... no one looking....

... no one knowing....

dash !!!!

and awayyy...

!!!! like a wizard and on the road again!

A definite proof for almost overcharged batteries, believe me!

Not quite sure how to interpret the comment with the stomach and "pretending...for a awhile",
That can only be in Y o u r eyes,....?

Doobie bros send their love:
....What a fool believes, he sees...
Doesn't everyone?

You might let us know about further proceedings of this bartender dream......,sounds very nice....,

..eventually extending opening times to 24 hours and and setting up a waiting list to buy a drink....
( not sure when You 'll have time to sleep)

....having long queues of people all over Austin that stop most of the traffic....

...booking extra flights worldwide to cope with the additional visitors that want to pay a visit in Your bar.....

Isn't life wonderful?

Excuse this little peep into the future, sometimes it is too tempting to take a look......
for those who can.....

Thank You for the welcoming invitation, only time will show......

Any news from the porch today?

Saw the IrisSilks catalog- just marvelous! And while red seems to be your color, green really is a close second. The stuff really looks comfortable to wear, if that doesn't sound too gay of me.

Take care of yourself.
