My caucasian friend in the red t-shirt says, “no more white presidents”

20 October 2008

I don’t photograph well–occassionally I’m not even visible.  Still, sometimes I get lucky.  To wit: I’ve been featured on Ugly Overload! (or, “Ugly Overlord” as I like to call the website in my head.)  Fame, fortune and naughty mermaids all will no doubt follow soon.

As long as I have your attention, this one goes out to Randy, to whom I drunkenly raved about Ethiopiques before imploring the patrons of the hip-hop club downstairs to vote and attempting to rally them with an empowering round of “¡Sí Se Puede!” above the strains of “BOYZ” which, it turns out is a waaaay better song than “Womanizer.”  All of which goes towards explaining why I was so wan and hoarse at the paleo-bloggers lunch and why I was never able to get around to making a joke that I’d been saving up for weeks about microecos being the result of a thought experiment where an infinite number of adapids were placed in a room full of selectrics and a mason jar full of mescaline.

Um, yeah.  So you’re welcome Randy.

And one more thing.  Hesperornis is totally a marine reptile and anyone who says otherwise can suck it.

p.s. (she’s in the hot tub.)

    Yes! Aw, I wish I’d been there.

    So, any time you want some east coast fun, J and I would totally love for you to come stay with us.

    It was really nice meeting you. In person.

    Thanks Amanda, at least you got to stick it to the man. Although I guess she was a woman in your case.

    Just catching up with emails. Not sure why you didn’t make it into one of those photos (did you have to discreetly turn away and chunder into a paper bag?). Great as always to see you at SVP, and you make sure you get one of those spiffy student travel grants to come to Bristol.

    So that’s what “chunder” means…

    Awesome. ThHanks for reminding me – which volume is supposed to be best?

  7. Neil Says:

    Volume 8 – Swinging Addis is my favorite.
