A Full Weekend

The weekend has been fashionably busy and full of charming people, art, pokerless poker parties and many, many cheese bits.

The first item on the agenda was the Tampa BOOTY Art Expo, which featured a selection of young and emerging area artists and coincided with the much more traditional show at the Gasparilla Art Festival. BOOTY's opening reception was very fun and included attractive people for ogling, free booze, and oodles of cheese bits and things at each location. I wandered around with organizer Carrie Mackin (Covivant Gallery) and basically just tried to be decorative-and-not-too-inebriated. Some of the featured artists and artists collectives included Kathie Olivas, Brandt Peters, Theo Wujcik, Mernet Larsen, the Fluff Constructivists, Experimental Skeleton, Underground Rising, Voshardt/Humphrey, etc, etc, etc, etc.

Saturday night was the farewell party for Brandt, as he and Kathie are both Sadly Leaving for the West Coast. It was supposed to be a poker party, but for some mysterious reason no one ever played poker. Instead we stuffed ourselves silly, tried not to cry, gossiped cattily, giggled insanely, gave each other weird hair massages, traded sexual innuendoes, and looked at even more art. In fact, we have had art coming out the wazoo this week! We may never look at art again.

To-day we are doing nothing in particular.
