Tour Funzone

Belated Easter

So I know this is a little late, but being on the road and working hard, I've been a little behind. For Easter weekend, I escaped the bus and hopped a flight to Vegas to spend the holiday with Dad and Carey. The sun was shining and the Blackjack tables were calling.

After a day of relaxing and winning $300 from a single $25 chip (thanks Red Rock Casino!), D & C surprised me on Easter Eve with tickets to the Criss Angel Cirque du Soleil. If you know me, you know I love magic as much as I love snowboarding, popcorn, and possibly my cat Jyme, so it's obvious i would be excited about seeing this fast-paced, goth inspired celebrity magic show. I ignored the disapproving quips of my bus-mates and skipped over the section of the wikipedia article that reads "The show opened to equally harsh reviews, citing a lack of the magic Angel is known for as well as a confusing and uninteresting theme." Oops. Maybe if i had been more willing to BELIEVE I'd have those 1.5 hours of my life back.

Since it was Rabbit themed, it seemed extra poignant.

These are our post-Believe faces. Sarcasm.

After the show we all agreed that it was the biggest waste of time in the History of Time. I was not excited by his tricks, nor amused by his lack of a 6-pack (aside from the 2 he drank before the 7:00 show). Boo Criss. You are stupid. At least I got to spend some quality MST3K commentary with the fam.

The next day Denny and I did what we love to do best since his move to Vegas last year: Play Tourist!

Went bowling (and scored free socks!)

The score was fun to fun.

We went to Paris!!!

Experience Freemont.

And last but not least, we got our picture taken with a MILLION DOLLARS! Then we won $20 of that Casino's million dollars and spent it on the stupidest movie ever.

Thanks for the great weekend guys! (...Believe)

This was a photo I just found on my computer that I took in Argentina. It really says it all.


Fiji Outrigger

So hey! Remember way back when I was living in Fiji and working as a graphic designer? Well, I almost forgot until stumbled upon fijioutrigger.com... About 6 months ago I designed this sucker and it's finally be web-coded and polished to perfection! I'm super excited because this is one of my favorite designs ever, and the best part is i didn't have to code it!


Meet the Crew!

This is a post from my CRJT blog with some more personal additions that I thought you guys might want to check out too! We all live together on a 40 foot gutted out greyhound bus (we'll save the tour for a different blog entry) and get to spend every waking hour and sleeping hour together.

PAT- Our resident musician-turned-snowboarder. Loves: trading things, snowboarding shirtless. Job: bus driver/bracelet trader. Calls computuers Google Boxes, which i think is hilarious. Also, iPhones are Superphones, cell phones are Text Phones, etc.

DRAE- The Three Pee: Poops, Pyramids, and Passing out. He's involved in some pyramid scheme that I get to enjoy each and every day! He;s our MC and makes really funny faces when dancing.

LOGAN- Newbie on tour. We'll see how this goes. He gave me the sweetest hat in the world.

KAIT- Can usually be found making the tour look pretty or complaining about how gross the bus is. Everyone gave me crap for including a good picture of myself on this entry.

TAY- He's in charge of things going down. Enjoys high fives and a good whiskey. You guys all know him...silly kentuckan belle.

DOM- Bus driving love kitten. Makes a bomb Bus Fried Rice. He's pretty much got the best attitude in the world.

ERIC- this kid will do anything for floam. Also, he talks dirty to his girlfriend on the bus at night and doesnt realize everyone can hear him.

DAN- don't stare at his mustache too long or he'll start licking it. This is my boss, and it's really hard to take him seriously...

BIG AL- aka Albatros aka alberstons aka al la mode aka root canal aka all alone aka reverend al aka allegra aka weird al yankovich aka alvis aka alvin and the chipmunks aka allegory aka alliteration aka altimeter aka altitude aka alligator aka al in wonderland. Obviously he has a lot of nicknames, but back when I met him in 2004 he was plain old Duff. And that is where he stays. He has a Big Sky Bistro, just like me, which earns him a lot of my respect.

DREW- Needs kitty litter. Last seen with no beard. Drew recently got blackout drunk and peed his bunk (right under me)... proceeded to strip out of all his clothes and throw them on mine. Took him a week to wash them for me.

ADAM- Collector of hearts and precious stones. Like every other Adam in my life, this one is totally awesome.

JON- Whaaaaaaaat. Don't give this one sugar. Or do...? Jon is constantly hitting on women and somehow is very successful. Beware! He Also snowboards with a dumdum in his mouth and consumes about 10 redbulls a day.

RYAN- best hugger on tour. This is another of m bosses. He's strong and sassy- just the way i like them.

BRUKE- If he hasn't already, he might find you on couchsurfing.com.

SHAUN- Goofball who hates me because i took over the CRJT blog. Currently back in PDX not living on the bus.

GRADY- This guy is hot, and he knows it. Ladies, beware.

So I was randomly searching online and found this totally epic illustrator who did a "state series." So f'n cool. Dreaming of being so creative...

Spokane is for Lovers...

...of Giant Wagons.

Josh came up for a visit. Almost won Spocompton (adorable local's name for this terrific town!) 80's trivia and made friends with an ex-meth cooker who was on parole and working at a bar populated only by us. Spokane isn't the best of times, but it certainly has it's flair. Our event goes down tomorrow, and aside from that Pacific Northwest Chill that's enveloped me since our arrival, it should be a pretty good rail jam.
