03/24/2005: "Rick is here!"
Rick and I walked down to the Douglas Harbor to meet Rozinante.
Then I forced him to pose ala "I'm the King of the World" and promised him that no one else would ever see it! :laugh:
There was another gorgeous moon rise as well. After our walk and after jump starting my tracker because he left the lights on...(people in Alaska leave their headlights on at all times, even on sunny days) we went out for burgers across the street at the Douglas Cafe and then next door to louie's for a beer.
He's jet lagged from the 4 hour time difference but we still made it through the US version of "the Office"; it isn't *as* funny as the British version but it wasn't horrible. They follow the original program's dialog to the letter, except they use North American references. Anyway, tomorrow we plan to head up to Anchorage. Yee haw
Oh yah, today's lead story in the Juneau Empire says that the Friendly Planet (where I was to have my show) is going out of business and closing for good due to the road construction. That totally sucks and seems very unfair; I'm currently writing a letter to the editor and would encourage any Juneauites out there to do so as well!
There's a chance I can show my work at Centennial Hall during the Alaska Folk Festival (that's the building where folk fest is held), someone is looking into it for me. I think that would be wonderful but it starts in roughly two weeks so that puts some pressure back on to get things finished up. I've kindof already changed gears, I haven't painted since I found out about the show being cancelled and it has been relaxing.
