BalloonHQ Columns - Ralph Dewey file under: reseach material

BalloonHQ Columns - Ralph Dewey: "Bring out the balloon so that the smile face is toward the audience. The magnet should be toward the back of the balloon and therefore unseen. Explain that just like this balloon, many people appear to be happy on the outside. But people who don't have Christ as their savior, don't have true lasting joy. Without having their sins forgiven, they will some day go down and suffer in Hell with the devil. Let the balloon drop so that it falls downward, but catch it before it touches the floor. (If it hits the floor, the jolt might make the magnet fall off.) Explain that now you'll let the balloon represent someone that has the Joy of Jesus inside, a Christian. It will represent a person who has repented of their sins and asked Jesus to be their Lord and Savior. Hold the balloon so that your right hand (if you are right-handed) is at the back. Secretly remove the magnet with your right hand and hide the magnet hidden in your hand. Reach into your shirt pocket for your marker and secretly drop the magnet into your pocket as you take out the marker. Draw a halo above the smile face."

this thing is practically writing itself.

clowning tutorial - balloon twisting, balloon animals - file under: research material

clowning tutorial - balloon twisting, balloon animals:

"A few caveats first. Be aware that balloons can, do, and will pop. That's normal. Even though they're made of latex (not standard balloon rubber), and can therefore take a lot more 'twisting,' they will still pop. Never give a balloon to a small child (I use a guideline of three years old or less). If the child bites on the balloon (which small children will do -- taste is a significant part of how they experience the world), the balloon will pop, a piece can then fly straight down the child's throat, and the child will suffocate and die -- you will not be able to dislodge that piece of latex in time to save the child. Don't turn something meant to delight a child into something so horrible. Thank you."

Off the Kuff: RIP, Gilley's

The demolition tumbled a holdover metal apostrophe and cursive S from the Gilley's lettering on the arena's facade. Moments later, after being struck by one of the excavators, the dusty marquee, bearing the words "WELCOME RODEO FANS," briefly hung in limbo before crashing in a heap of twisted scrap metal.

a sad, SAD day...

Daily Kos: White House Falsifies Briefing Transcript

Daily Kos: White House Falsifies Briefing Transcript:

"Quite simply, the White House has tampered with the transcript of the Oct. 31 press briefing conducted by l'il Scott McClellan. David Gregory of MSNBC argued to McClellan that notwithstanding McClellan's assurances two years ago that Rove and Libby had not been involved in the leak, both Rove and Libby have admitted to taking part in conversations with journalists regarding Valerie Plame. In response, Scottie said 'That's accurate.' But the official White House transcript of the briefing available at has Scottie saying 'I don't think that's accurate.'"

And we have always been at war with Eastasia.

so, insomnia kind of sucks...

I was falling asleep on the couch at 10...
then I went to lay down...
30 minutes later I was wide awake,
and now here I am...


I've almost got on my bike 3 or 4 times to go somewhere,
but I've talked myself out of it everytime...



I can only remember last night in flashes...

I know I ended the night dancing.
at #'s.
wearing my wife beater.
and a red boa.

I suspect
there was
drinking involved.
