dear yan, the secret studio opening party is almost upon us. all our friends in the area will be getting their secret invitations - you know, the ones plastered on facebook and our blog. my only regret is that i wish more strangers would come. i wish they would read the blog and decide to come of their own volition. (you know, they could come to one east center street ste. 207, friday @ 8pm). then they could be our new friends. or better yet, since it is a secret party, our old friends could disguise themselves as strangers and we could have two friendships where there was once one. insert a picture of garth brooks next to one of chris gaines.
tonight when i took the scouts to the wildlife museum, one of the museum educators held out a snake to me (in case i wanted to pet it). i did not. he did this as he explained how this snake regularly eats rattlesnakes. he also told this group of impressionable 15 scouts that if you happen upon a rattlesnake it will probably not bite you at first, since biting is a last resort. the creature is a head and a tail! it can do nothing but bite you! this i did not say. instead i thought of what a fun party game it would be to have a rattlesnake wandering around the studio. then if anyone looks nervous just say, "don't worry, biting is a last resort."
you bring the disguises. i'll bring the snake.
