"a Rockabilly Elf is delivering some keen prizes for the Jet City Junket" -dogbytes-

Hmmm..."elf" has never been used to describe me.

I should let it be known that due to unexpected family (my Uncle Sam) obligations in far eastern Washington I won't be attendin' the JCJ2. If my trip goes well, yuh'll hear nothin'. If thinks get crunchy look fer headline tales of fantastic gun play, rumors of alien invasion, and possibly reports of zombies. Or somethin' like that.

The usually cobweb covered work benches at Woofmutt Stuff & Junk Like That have been a flurry of activity, hot glue, and fake snow these past coupla weeks. Despite my absence there will be many keen things (plus some useless vintage nonsense) fer JCJ2 attendees to win. (And remember: Those lil spider web like strands of hot glue are how yuh know yer piece of Woofmutt Stuff & Junk Like That was hand made by American hands!)

So get ready to exclaim "What the hell is this?" as yuh head to the garbage can. (Though don't be too hasty...A piece of Woofmutt Stuff & Junk Like That makes the ideal revenge gift. Perfect fer tellin' cousin' Elizabeth just what yuh thought of the Kittens On Parade calendar she gave yuh last year.)

What a BLAST! This was the most fun I've had in a LONG time! I got a lot of pics but I have to get my kid to download them for me - I'm not very savvy when it comes to that! Everyone was soooo nice and so much fun. I'm only sorry I didn't discover Tiki sooner! Thanks SOOO much to everyone who made this possible - you all know who you are! I would love to help out with the next Tiki event. Loved every minute (well, maybe not so much when the bus nearly went off the cliff!) LOL

What a great great event! Mucho Mahalo's to Dogbytes for all the time
and effort in planning this awesome event! I haven't seen that many
fabulous prizes since watching Wheel of fortune...


Monkeyskull is definitely the "Hostess with the Most-est"


Todd hurriedly removing the wrapping to avoid the oncoming stampede


The Shag room before all the shagging began


Do Marlow, JoDavid and Sweetpea ever not look fabulous??


Heathers Chihuahua is acting cool, but really enjoyed the junket...


Enjoying the delicious libations offered in the Rongo Rongo Room



Sweetpea mistakenly thought the baby she won in the raffle was edible..


Some of Ken Pleasant's amazing artwork that sold very quickly.


Just a couple of the glamorous ladies on the Junket


Monkeyskull faking narcolepsy in an effort to avoid conversation

THANK YOU EVERYONE!! the Second Jet City Junket was an absolute success! we overpacked the bright yellow schoolbus ~ evidently, the stated capacity of 72 (children) does not quite equal 52+ adults ~ and hokey smokes, that doesn't include the hosts that followed the bus in personal vehicles! the bus was quite cozy! thank you all for squishing in, playing nice and being on time. oh and not getting left behind somewhere along the way.

i took no pictures ~ too busy having fun! IF YOU TOOK PICTURES, PLEASE SHARE!

The Hosts::
All of this would have been impossible without the overwhelming generosity of our home bar hosts. Your Aloha Spirit astonishes me, thank you for opening your homes to us.

Dawn (Sophista Tiki) served quiche and fruit and fantastic drinks at her uniquely stylized, art-filled, witco enhanced, midcentury modern home. The Shagalicious home of Paul & Kendra (Mr & Mrs Tiki Riviera) was as delicious on the eyes as it was on our tummies! The sweeping views of Lake Washington at Carrie and Lori's home were as amazing as the sensational Thai Food and the drinks poured from the vintage built-in bar in the rumpus room. Plenty of Chinese BBQ pork and desserts at elicia & Frank-Todd's . in the Rongorongo Room , Space Needles and Chief Lapu-Lapu's poured freely! we ended the night at Pete's (Monkeyskull's) Voodoo Lounge with a Hawaiian Buffet and plenty of Punch.

The Volunteers:
Woofmutt, Andy (Tiki Joe's Pop), Dawn (Sophista tiki), Jesse Elliott & Iggi Green, Jonelle, Sweetpea, Frank Tamburine and Shani (Tiki Wahine) thanks for stepping up where ever and when ever there was a need!

Donations:
Tiki Daze (Swanky) ~ Calendars
Bad Mojo ~ Suburban Savage ~ Plaque and Pendants
Woofmutt Stuff and Junk Like That ~ BILLIONS of handcrafted and vintage items, gift-wrapped prizes!!!
TIkiyaki Orchestra ~ CDs and coasters
Tiki Riviera ~ a signed SHAG PRINT
Sweetpea ~ Booze Leis
Ken Pleasant ~ HUGE Carved Paddle
Sophista Tiki ~ Designed and Produced the Swag Bags
Heather Watts (Travelin Tiki) ~ beautiful art Prints
Tiki Joe's Pop (Andy) ~ Jet City Junket 2 CD

Vendors: Sweetpea, Jonelle, Bad Mojo and Ken Pleasant (email me for contact info if you want to purchase more stuff!)

Geez, i hope i remembered all my Thank You's ~ i look forward to JCJ3!
edit to correct Bad Mojo's business name Suburban Savage.

Thanks to everyone involved, especially Elicia, Woofmutt and Sweetpea for their extra hard work and also thanks to all the hosts. Your homes and bars were incredibly inspiring! I had a fab time indeed!

Thanks also to everyone who purchased tiki pendants, hair flowers or hawaiian shirts from me. Since this was my first attempt at carving pendants, it was quite swelligant to sell some!

I took lotsa pics of all the stops which I will post soon. In the meantime, here is a shot of my first attempt in "Pendant Making 101". I sold all but nine! Yay!

Thanks again everyone!!

Wow! They are so different yet so the same!

I saw one on the tour that looked the the Abominable Snow Monkey...all white and sparkly! Very cool and very elusive!

i actually forgot the Monkey's name. on the bus i called him The Snow Monkey of Death. but he sorta looks like that, when you tip his head back and it's all cranium-y inside.

Hey Folks, Miss Jonelle still has some of these for sale, but NOT the Tiki Bobs, because one belongs to Tiki Riviera, and the other one was bought by
SHAG!!!! Super coolio!!!!

Also, thanks muchacha to all the hosts, and Miss Elicia for just doing so much to make it happen and to Woof, who shoulda been there, and to our favorite bus driver yet... and to my giant hips that allowed me to have a seat between the seats without my rump touching the floor ( I think ya had to be there for that one) and to everyone whoo came on the bus and sang along with the songs I made ya sing....
Sweetpea

This was so much fun. Big THANK YOU to all the hosts who allowed us to rampage through their houses, eat their food, drink their booze and ogle their stuff. All of you are so generous with your time and efforts.

Also big THANKS to everyone who supplied raffle items and goodie bag items. The goodie bags were without a doubt the very best we've ever had. The hand made bags themselves were just so fantastic that it made you clutch them to your chest and swoon. And the cookies... exactly what we needed...lord knows there was no food to be had at any of the houses *smirk*....

And there is always one comment overheard at these things that just sticks in my mind. This one was from Kim who was talking to Pete "and you're such a nice boy".

Thanks again everyone. This was worth twice the price!
