back to the blogorelli collegiate stomping grounds of cincinnati, OH...this very afternoon!
no posty has been the result of 1) extremely hectic work schedule 2) fitness class time/day switches 3) personal prep for today's trip. i will be back in full force come monday!
the catalyst for my first trip back to the farmland since graduation 3 years ago are the nuptials of my design studio-mate and friend Kimmie-O. she's marrying nate...and i approve, because he's kind of like the hard drinking, slightly ruffian older brother that i never had. you know, the kind who will get you a glass of rosé wine because, you know, "it's what you should have", and then promptly defend you in a fist fight should need be.
K-O and i met one fateful day in drawing studio. i was with my (only) design school sidekick at the time, The Junglecat. the studio was too small for our whole class, and 3 people had to move to a different studio...so that's how K-O, The Junglecat and I (The Machine Gun) found ourselves spending 6 hours together every week. we learned things about each other. i couldn't draw anything square OR rectangular in perspective. The Junglecat wore little boy underpants because they were cheaper than men's and his butt was small enough to fit into them. Kim had a fake eye. in fact, she was the only person ever born with whatever caused her to have a fake eye that had any vision at all. so she's not only a slick dresser, but also a miracle of science. A MIRACLE OF SCIENCE!
for 10 weeks, The Junglecat begged K-O to pop out her eye and show us. she refused. we all went home for break and forgot about the whole thing. but many quarters later, after we had become close friends, she DID pop her eye out. FOR ME! while we were watching the Survivor finale at her house. and, oh, it was cool.
while back in the 'nati, i will also be eating Skyline Chili, checking out the new Contemporary Arts building downtown, getting intoxicated and singing karaoke with the old gang, and going to MY FAVORITE thrift store e-v-e-r! i shiver in anticipation.
stay outta trouble. see ya on monday.
