I'll second or third all of the above. Thanks again to the Smiley-Hags for hosting on Saturday. Obviously the place is as wonderful as ever. And it does look like JT is having a great time exploring roadside americana on his book tour.

Friday night was great was well. Good to see everyone again. No Cal knows how to represent. Especially those from the (ahem) Petaluma area, who we always love to see, whose company we enjoy, and who will hopefully shut up about being left out of the loop and start reading the Tiki Events forum!

I'm reading, I'm reading!

I had a ball on Friday as well, didn't I say we should get together every weekend? Craig and I finally put face to name of Tikibot, and discovered that he works in the building next to Craig's. Crazy stuff.

I still think the Tiki Real World, located at that apartments next to Vic's, has real potenetial. Tiki's hot and trendy, I saw it in the Pottery Barn catalog. The time is now! We must strike! All we need is some manufactured drama--say, we all fight over the same Tiki Bob cup or something.

Sorry, couldn't help it. I've got Hunter S. on the brain this week.



"We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold. I remember saying something like I feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should drive. . . . And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, which was going about a hundred miles an hour with the top down to Las Vegas."


Lisa, between this and the Python stuff, I think we're losing everyone else here!

On the contrary, you're getting me cranked up for my own road trip. I've gotta dig out my old Hunter to bring on the road. I've got a Duke action figure from Doonesbury somewhere, I should find him and stick the little bugger on my dash.

You may be right.

I guess this means the next time we're all riding the Tiki Bus, I shouldn't leap out of my seat as we pull up to the crushingly crowded, claustrophobic Bamboo Hut and scream, "We can't stop here! This is bat country!!"

Er...

Humuhumu, I have one of those somewhere too! Thanks for reminding me! You know, he'd look just fine next to the hula girl and Tigger.

Now if I could only find Obi-Wan.

Hey everybody -

I've been so busy making off-topic Monty Python, HS Thompson, and Star Wars jokes with Tikivixen that I forgot the most important thing on this thread, which is thanking Mig for starting it, and more importantly thanking all the TC'ers who showed up at TVics last week.

Someone said that "No Cal knows how to represent", and you guys really do. Every time I make it west, there's a Tiki posse rolling out the welcome mat. You guys rule.

The Vics management were thrilled with the turnout, and they were asking me if having a regular event (monthly or weekly or whatever) for the Tiki crew would be a good idea. I told 'em hell yes!

Aloha and big Mahalo!

Oh, and Mig...

"Teitel-schmooze"?

Back in my wasted youth, the kids on the playground came up with every possible evil mutation of my surname...

I thought I'd heard them all...

Leave it to the gorilla to come up with a new one!

Thanks, James! I was hoping you'd post those.

Looks like Jen and I are ready to drop the acid and hit the road for Vegas!

um ... yes. and by "dropping the acid" she refers to an act which is completely and categorically legal. such a term has been found to be a new phrase meaning: planning a trip, in the modern parlance of our times, and is not to be construed as referring to illicit drug activity of any kind.
Furthermore, I plead the 5th (and 6th, as the case may be).
(don't you know -- we have a *secret agent* in our midst!!)

Planning a road trip? acid?

How long could we maintain? I wondered. How long until one of us starts raving and jabbering at this boy? What will he think then? This same lonely desert was the last known home of the Manson family; will he make that grim connection when my attorney starts screaming about bats and huge manta rays coming down on the car? If so, well, we'll just have to cut his head off and bury him somewhere, 'cause it goes without saying that we can't turn him loose. He'd report us at once to some kind of outback Nazi law enforcement agency and they'll run us down like dogs. Jesus, did I say that? Or just think it? Was I talking? Did they hear me?
