05/25/2006: "Pimp your face"
So, I've volunteered to work at our university's Community Day Sat. afternoon doing...face painting! I've practiced a few times on myself (see below) but I have no idea if I'll be any good doing little kids. I'm going to set up a table with a big sign and balloons next to the marine petting zoo. I'm only giving them their choice of sea creature (whale, dolphin, crab, starfish, jellyfish, mermaid, etc.)
Also, I know I should probably start a second blog to write about my sailing adventures because a few readers have told me they find them "boring" but I can't help it, I LOVE to sail. Last night I went out with M and K as part of the Wednesday night racing series and it was perfect. Sunny skies, lots of strong wind, there were 7 boats out there and everyone went out to the Douglas Island Pub afterwards for beer and pizza and the requisite race related trash talking.
Tonight I'm going to Juneau Jazz and Classic's Puttin' on the Ritz which is going to be really hoity toity, then Friday night I'm helping sail the High Noon from Fisherman's Bend to the Douglas Harbor. Then Sat. face painting, sunday work, and Monday I'll have the day off and plan to meet for coffee with that naturalist I mentioned eariler. Seems like a really interesting character...should be fun.
So, when do I plan to actually get any painting in? Good question!
