A Bagel, a Mess, and a New Tail

design concept
went a bit crazy lol
tail is all cut out now
I'm not sure that I will be painting the neoprene patchwork tail.  I have begun construction on a spandex/lycra tail.

Tuesday I head to Creation 2011, which will curtail construction.  I return Sunday evening.  Monday is that American holiday with pretty explosions.  Tuesday I pack again.  Wednesday I should ship out to sea with my brother, headed for Maine.  My first swim test of the new tail very well might be in the ocean off of the side of a sailboat.

I'm researching graduate schools, it is slow going.  Not sure I have anything else to share just now.

Mostly Photos

Funky Formal Satine
Zombie Invasion Weekend
I make a delicious mushy stir-fry!
Watch out!  Danger when gingers unite!
Tomorrow I head up to the house of some friends.  I get to spend the weekend in their pool and swimming and chilling with a bunch of sexy women.  I just finished some tail repairs so that I can do this as a mer.  I'm terribly excited to get back in my tail and in the water.  I hope we can take some photos of it!

After that I head up to NJ on either Monday or Tuesday.  Hopefully I can gain access to a pool in NJ as well, and maybe finally finish things with my tail.  I might try and enlist the help of some artist friends to assist in painting it.  Then I'll be spending some time in PA at Creation 2011.  Followed by a large family gathering for the 4th of July.  Then, I should be aiding my brother in sailing his new house, a 30-some foot sailboat, North along the coast.  Then it's back to the faires, Bristol and MN.

Alright, I'm off to spend one more night in the heat of my house.
