Was a regular laff riot. Thanks to everybody for making it such a great party!
And a Nick Cave Pajama Jammy Jam.
Madame Maraschino and Odessa Lil.

I'm walking down the street towards Go Go Sushi (because the insect index is WAY up at Lee's Deli) and this guy carrying a huge bag of flowers and presents stops me on the street. He wants me to bring it up to his wife's office for him so she'll be surprised for her birthday. I kind of don't get the concept at first, probably because it's 2:00 pm and I haven't eaten yet and maybe because I'm still functioning on the whole October-entertainment-lack-of-sleep thing and possibly because I've taken 2 Midrin so far today and it could be because I'm still going over a case from work in my head...but he waves a ten dollar bill at me, pushed the package into my arms, and soon I'm in an elevator in a strange building, delivering a bag of birthday surprises to an electrical engineer. She's happy, he's happy...I go to vegetarian sushi on them. Lee's still sucks.

Today was going to be my rare opportunity to sleep in on a week day, but at exactly 8:00 am enter THE ROOF REPAIR MEN! Argggg! I was forced to get up and be productive so I worked out a pretty elaborate gag for Thursday's Little Minsky's show. I think I've got that under control now (note to self: wash blood and bone fragments out of carpet before roommate gets home. KIDDING!), so I'm thinking I'll head to the beach and get away from all the roof noise.
Or maybe I'll just look at this picture all day:

Ok. I didn't really write a song for you, but I can direct you to a few good ones if you are interested.
1. First, I'd start of with "King Tut". Everyone knows that he was buried in his jammies and that he died for tourism, but did you know that The Hamboogers covered this Steve Martin classic while opening for The Donnas in Pioneer Town (a ghost town of a film set of a ghost town in Yucca Valley)? Strange-but-true fact. The Donnas' fans loved it. I loved it. King Tut loved it.
Here are The Hamboogers:
Russell Quan: Stud.
And this guy is Steve Stiletto, but doesn't he look sort of familiar? OH! It's Bowser!
The Hamboogers' groupies. (Where's our drink tickets?)
And The Donnas. What nice girls:
So of course, now I want to move to the desert and start my own Alien cult...the other American dream.
I wish Darin would stop convincing Brett to eat the scenery:
2. Bombshell Betty's Pin-Up Class was a ton of fun and an unexpected workout! (I think I'm going to break my whole song-month-theme for this blog entry. Didn't last long did it?) Sucking it in and rapidly moving from cheesecake pose to cheesecake pose proved to be quite aerobic. The class ended with a photo shoot (Yeay! Joe Niem!). I haven't seen the photos yet, but I'll post them when I get them. I did manage to steal a few pictures of the super cute Sweetcheeks on my own camera:
3. Day at the Races with Mr. Lucky! I never thought I'd find myself at beautiful downtown San Mateo's Bay Meadows Race Track, but what an interesting afternoon!
4. And there was also a UFO West in September! Freakout!
I am always destined to be sweaty in a UFO picture!
