OK, how weird was this. There were So Many blonde girls at this
event. So many. And weirder still, they were particularly furry. Even
upper arms. Me and my fabu madre were musing that there's a ranch in
Ojai growing blonde girls for the next ice age. You know, pale so
they soak up the maximum amount of sunshine and furry to keep warm.
Stranger things have happened. The gig was a blast. I just wish I
could've criused the other booths. I bought a little shirt, a scrap
of silk, that I wore that day. And I won't be able to wear til next
year since Im Moving To New York(what a trip,being born 'n raised in
S.CA.) Things I learned: Spread out. What was cozy at 9am was
cramped at 11. Also....eat! And train that booth 'assistant' well.
Need a gregarious person for the job, that's fer damm sure. Eating
was something I forgot about as I was so into what I was doing. Must
Eat! And I'm so happy we had inexpensive designs, seeing young people
smile so big as they dole out their cash stash fulfilled me. I did a
couple designs for 4$ plus pocket lint, these were the most
satisfying. Every body should be honoured. Kari rocked. I rocked.
Ojai rocks. What a groove.
I'd do it again. In a minute. Mayhap next year I'll fly west for the
winter and play there again. The other lady doing henna was weird(to
Me). Totally hateful about us being there, so much makeup I couldn't
describe her face if you asked me too. When I went to introduce there
was absolutely No comeraderie, no kindeness. Maybe I expect too much
from people. Maybe I'm thoroughly done w/ steroetypical Angelenos.
Shoot me if I ever forget myself to fit in. A good, good day. Many
smiling faces. Overwhelming at times,the gratitude I saw. So. that's
it! A rockin success. Bought myself a huge coat at goodwill this am
in prep for the Adirondacks. I'm leaving home finally and am going
home.peace to all.
