"...the sweetest moment comes at last/the waiting's over/in shock they stare/cue fanfare...."—Cue Fanfare, Prefab Sprout
Saturday, that grand enigma Wildabeest lovingly organized a post-xmas picnic & kickball game in Elysian Park for friends & affiliates of the c Ha c Ha. Though sick and wearing flip-flops in cold, windy weather, master chef Hope Bailey charged like a bull through her own personal hell to serve the assembled horde lil' cupcakes, mini-burgers, banana pudding, mac & cheese, thai salad & noodles... a real feast at the end of the great salt mine of 2008.
a day watching Andy kick a ball in combat boots, flannel and stove-pipe pants did wonders for washing
away the xmas blues. And that baby Sig, wow. The sight of such a wonderfully weird father & wiggly, wild son nearly makes parenthood appealing. Their scarf/hat combo, mind warping. Thank God for Andy Coronado & Kevin Willis, life would be lesser without them.
