So my april fools joke of the day was waking up on the floor with my head under the bed. I don't know how that happened. eh. *shurg* Yesterday was a good day. Raye, Chris, Christine and I went to see the movie where Adam Sander stole Bob Dylans haircut. I cried. Not becasue of the hair, but becasue it was a sad movie. Yeah, I'm a dork. Then we went and had Thai food and headed out to the Dunnes where we met up with Samuel and Christian came down to the pub with his lady friend. Apparently it was national kilt day yesterday, so the Welshman made up another excuse to wear the kilt, an excuse he can't use again or I'll have to call him on it. Actually I should just look that up come to think of it. We've given Samuel a mission to find a nice oder sugar dady with a boat so we can have the Pirate themed birthday party for Raye in July. Apparantly you're not alowed to rent a house boat for a weekend in the city of Seattle. What a let down. Chris still needs to wear his navy whites, boat or no boat. I so *heart* my friends, we haven't even had Christine weekend in Portland yet and we're planning an extravagent Raye weekend involvingg boats. These weekends are just getting more and more extavagent, I just went to the Dunnes on my birthday, now Portland, a BOAT. Shit, I should just tell the girls that next MIr weekend, we're going to London!! So today, I wasn't feeling so hot and I don't think sleeping on that hanger and comb helped any but Adam called me and we talked on the phone for about two hours. It was so good talking to him, I miss that kid a lot. Tried to get him to come to SEattle but he was having none of it and since he goes back to Bellingham when school starts I guess I'm going to have to wait until the summer. Lame. It's weird that there are some peps I only see about once a year now if not longer. Anyway this is a very boring kind of stream of consiousness blog. Oh yeah I apparently I wrote a novella, I'll be damned. Acording to wikepedia my word count of my story lies in the range of novella. Totally unpublishable but I'm still proud. Tomorrow no dragonfish. We're being good friend and helping Cathy move her shit from San Jose into her appartment. Movies at Cathy's one that big plasma TV is hooked up. and FONDU parties will totatly return!! Oh those imnfamous fondu parties...oh yeah and she's bringing us Makers Mark for manhattans. word.

My dad just showed me this article in the P-I and I had to share with the world. I *heart* modern art. :)

Nude chocolate Jesus sculpture nixed


NEW YORK -- A planned Holy Week exhibition of a nude, anatomically correct chocolate sculpture of Jesus Christ was canceled Friday after Cardinal Edward Egan and other outraged Catholics complained.

The "My Sweet Lord" display was shut down by the hotel that houses the Lab Gallery in midtown Manhattan. Roger Smith Hotel president James Knowles cited the public outcry for his decision.

The reaction "is crystal clear and has brought to our attention the unintended reaction of you and other conscientious friends of ours to the exhibition," Knowles wrote in the two-paragraph cancellation notice.

Matt Semler, the gallery's creative director, resigned in protest.

The 6-foot sculpture was the victim of "a strong-arming from people who haven't seen the show, seen what we're doing," Semler said. "They jumped to conclusions completely contrary to our intentions."

But word of the confectionary Christ infuriated Catholics, including Egan, who described it as "a sickening display."

The hotel and the gallery were overrun Thursday with angry phone calls and e-mails about the exhibit. Semler said the calls included death threats over the work of artist Cosimo Cavallaro, who was described as disappointed by the decision to cancel the display.

The artwork was created from more than 200 pounds of milk chocolate, and features Christ with his arms outstretched as if on an invisible cross. Unlike the typical religious portrayal of Christ, the Cavallaro creation does not include a loincloth.

Cavallaro is best known for his quirky work with food as art: Past efforts include repainting a Manhattan hotel room in melted mozzarella, spraying 5 tons of pepper jack cheese on a Wyoming home, and festooning a four-poster bed with 312 pounds of processed ham.
