A most excellent time and a FANTASTIC BOOK! It really was like a "yearbook signing" party! I stayed up waaaay too late trying to read the thing! See you all soon again.

HOORAY for Jay!
and Holden!
and Billy!
and all the others who helped make this event and book
a total BASH!
Plus, the bookstore at laLuz is my dream library!
tried to hit the Ghastly Ones afterwards
but there was a huge stupid line
and we couldn't get in with our contacts or dashing madcap looks
so we hit the TikiTi and chatted it up with all the crew there!
Incredible place,full of loads of cool stuff!
including a coconut downs syndrome hula girl!
and if that weren't enough...Miles Thompson paintings ALL OVER the walls!
Great night!
I even met Munktiki!
wowz...
Thanks everyone!

Kinny, you mean you've never been to Wacko or Tiki Ti ? By your post that's how it sounds, but that can't be right.

Anyway, Wacko is a great place for books. My tiki geekiness started there when I used to get Tiki news there in the mid 90's.

WoWeEeEeE....That was fun!

Jay- Congratulations on a beautiful bit of eye-candy! Stellar work, mate! Here's to the sequel.

Big props to JonPaul and all the other photogs who did some major justice to those mugs!

Fun stuff I got to do:

I finally got to meet MILES!
I got to meet FALIN!
I got to sign all the kids' yearbooks!
I got to see Notch really hammered and totally hilarious!
I got to see Tikiyaki moderately hammered and totally hilarious!
I got a book! Then I got another book!
I went to House of Pies for the very first time! (It's a culinary "toss-up" between H.O.P. and Pioneer Rat I'm sorry to say. Next time I'm stickin' to Fatburger)
I got back to my car in the Circuit City lot just in time, with the tow truck right behind, ready to start hauling off the Tiki Ti leftover vehicles! (Thanks Ski!)
I got to see a guy dump his bike which turned into shards under a cop car and an SUV on the 101 because LAPD ran a bonehead traffic break and cut him off! (He was OK)

I lost an hour of sleep!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Life is good...

Dude- You bought books with lots of WORDS? Sheeeesh. They had a really cool MUG BOOK there. It has pictures of MUGS in it. Hurry up and get back there before they're gone!

i ordered mine on Amazon 3 weeks ago hoping it would get to the house before the show
but Nooooooooooooooooooooo!
Will get here before the 15th!
Amazon sucks!
i should've save my shekels and bought it there!


that's why...

and why didn't YOU bring a mug
instead of that froggie planter you made?

at least it looked better than Cass' "mug"
