2011 Texas VW Classic

Posted by Cindy on 16th April 2011

This was shot yesterday (Friday), which is/was load-in day. The big big big thang goes down today. You outta go take a lookie-lu. Lady Bird Johnson Golf Park is heaven, the folks with the Vee-Bug craze are good’un’s, and it’s a perfectly divine day.

I woulda stayed longer, but there were too damn many bugs. Huh? HUH? Too many “bugs!” Get it?!? Man, I crack me up…

Oh boy oh boy…oh boy-o-boy-o-boy…

Posted by Cindy on 12th March 2010

I’ve been laid-up with the “worst case of Rheumatoid Arthritis” my Rheumatologist has “ever seen in her entire career…” as of late, which led to becoming extremely behind at work.

But I’m happy to say that after numerous medications and a series of (ongoing) injections, I’m much better and REALLY excited about the big St. Patrick’s Day party on Greenville tomorrow! I can’t wait!

…not…

…my illness and old age has really magnified my obnoxious sarcasm…burp…

How I Spent My Morning…aka…The Scabby Project

Posted by Cindy on 19th December 2009

“Scabby” lost his balls last week. I know it’s wrong on so many levels, but we’ve been posing him as a satellite dish, a martini glass, a plunger and various other things while that stupid thing is attached to his head. No worries. He doesn’t mind. He pretty much adapts to everything in a few secs….

PS- this was shot on my Flip Video thingie…

Boo

Posted by Cindy on 30th October 2009

So here’s what happened…the boychild saved up a good deal of cash cuz he wanted to purchase a Pug. One Saturday, several weeks back, he set off to Rockwall to meet with a potential new pup’s owner/seller. He returned home with…well…supposedly this pooch is half chihuahua and half pekingnese…and he had this circular scab from where he’d scratched himself due to an enormous amount of fleas…sigh. So I called him “Scabby” straight out of the chute, and Scabby has stuck…the fleas, however, are gone.

My sister is a really talented pooch photographer, and she gave me this beauty this morning. I give you…Scabby…oh…and ironically, I’ve recently been referring to Scabby as “Boo” Very fitting…

I’m so freakin’ behind on blogging ’round here, not that anyone really cares, but whatever. So here’s some quickie stuff…

Speaking of quickie stuff, this week’s Quick features the mag’s “50 Favorite Things We Love About Dallas Nightlife.” There were some great picks, but my favorite one of all goes…

“Deep Ellum has a ways to go before achieving glory akin to its heyday. But the reopening of rock venue Trees …as well as the draw of hip-hop acts to the Lounge on Elm St. go a long way to help. Art destinations such as Kettle Art and the gleaming new Traveling Man sculptures, as well as the Deep Ellum DART station are also promising developments in the neighborhood’s evolution.”

Other notable picks: the Granada, the Double-Wide, Jack’s Backyard, Adair’s, Good Records, Lee Harvey’s, the Fallout Lounge, and lots more, including a great spread on The Naptime Shake’s debut album, Blood and Panic.

Speaking of The Naptime Shake, Noah and the boys are throwing down tonight at Bryan Street Tavern. It’s, how them young’un’s say, a CD release paaaartaaay. Nicholas Altobelli opens. Be there.

Don’t forget about the Taste of Greenville Avenue tomorrow. You can read more about that on my Art&Seek Friday Roundup post over at the day job.

Jeff Liles and I are getting together with Bucks Burnett tonight. Can’t say why. Not just yet. Soon.

Pegasus News scored a video interview with Star Wars: in Concert conductor Mark Watters. Check it here…and yes, this one’s for you Paul Adams.

I’ve been on a solid, whole foods only, no meat of any kind diet this entire week and I feel like crap. WTF?

My neck hurts…

Ugh…

Posted by Cindy on 17th October 2009

Yeah. I know I’m on the fast track to becoming a really old, really bitter, really cynical, really crabby old woman. But, really? I had to spend a bit of time in “Uptown” today and a bit of time in Downtown Dallas today and the only words that kept shrieking from my mouth was, “TOOLS!!!!” “DOUCHEBAGS!!!!” “DUMBASSES!!!” “WTF YOU MUTHA-EFFIN ASSHOLES!!!”

I hate Texas/OU weekend…with every inch of my cold hard heart….
