What's more fun?

Just a smidgen of the weekend (you know how Mondays are)...


Learning about the diverse and elegant world of Ikebana at the 2009 Ikebana Flower Show.

Peeking into the private parts of orchids at the Pacific Orchid Expo at Fort Mason.

Sneaking around places you aren't supposed to be, with Chipmonkey.

Chipmonkey took this photo of me. I was looking up to make sure the Hazardous Waste sign or that rusty thing didn't fall on my head.

I wish I had more time today to share more... but gotta keep the day job, while there is one.

You lead such a varied and exotic life...and falling signs, too!

Ps: Tom Jones is going to be in NYC in July...I'm trying to get together a few panty tossing friends to join me!

I considered going to both shows but it just didn't work out. Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos. Please tell little Miss Chipmonkey that she did a great job photographing you.

Oh how I love your photos. You have my favorite things posted today. I am a huge orchid lover. Are you wearing character shoes? or are those just mary janes? Love them!

Yoli love,

I AM a character. Or at least my shoes are.

These are my beloved Deco shoes from Remix Vintage Shoes... my favoritest place in the world for shoes:

Beautiful shots, as usual. Had you not made that comment about the last one I would have thought that you were posing :-).

Greetings from London.

hahah - love the comments about the orchids - my neighbour's an artist and has a painting of an orchid hanging above his fireplace. I can't help but think it's quite a 'private' painting and could NEVER hang it in my lounge!!

Great snap of you too! Sue

Oh, geez!! I'd love to go shopping in your closet. You look terrific. I love the contrast between your completely "done" self and the nearly undone setting. This is a wonderful portrait. I hope it's the author photograph for your My SF book.
