Bad Wig and Ugly Tracksuit Walk

• HAPPY NEW YEAR 2009 !!! •

• Earlier today we did this in Seattle…

• Bad Wig and Ugly Tracksuit Walk around Greenlake on Thursday, January 1st. This is our second year establishing this as a yearly New Years Day tradition. We meet at Noon on New Years Day at the Kiddy Pool to walk around the lake, every year, so if you missed it, be there on New Years Day 2010.

What a great way to get the New Year off on the right foot.

Luckily, wigs do offer some insulation from hangovers and there’s no need to fret about bad bed-head.

Rain-or-shine, umbrella’s & kids ok. Meet at the Kiddy Pool on the North end of the Lake at noon. I’m pretty sure we’ll all be pretty easy to spot.

Paint-by-Numbers House

After seeing Robin Held’s show “Spectatorship & Desire: Lust, Loss, and Love” at the Frye Art Museum, hung cheek-to-jowl “salon style”, the Paint-by Numbers retrospective at the Smithsonion Institution and the current Paint-by Number show at the Corey Helford Gallery in L.A., artist JoDavid was inspired to create his own “Paint-by-Number Salon” in his home in Seattle.
