Well, Dakota, learning that stuff is good so you can always fix your own disasters. If you like that kinda shit. I was raised building homes. So it is a genetic disease.

I'll have to take a few pictures of the new place in Richmond and post.

Ignore the dirty floor. I was in the process of cleaning it when I found my new little friend.

I got it the day it was released in Kindle format, but could only access the internet from my phone, it is apparently not possible to take a picture of said phone with said phone, so here we are a few days later.

Aren't we all ignoring the obvious question? Why is Death looking over her shoulder?

That's not Death. It's just a skeleton. That's an original chalk drawing by artist and friend, Rik Verlin Livingston. I highly recommend checking out his website Zonoart.com. I've got so much of his stuff around the house, he does surreal art, gothic art, you name it. Incredibly talented, and incredibly nice guy.

EDIT: and his work is affordable, which makes it even cooler.

@Chester you're building a porn studio? Can you come over here and build me one?

But I won't use it for porn. I'm going to use it as my office. For writery-wroodling stuff. 

But go ahead and install the stripper pole, anyway.

 

@Averydoll HOLY CRAP that is the most painful thing I've ever seen!

Strippa-pose in every home!

That really is some of the most amazing gymnastics on the planet. My god. Spinning bodies. I love that shit!

So, it is going to be an Olympic event I heard.

Yay!

Courtney, if you put me up in San Fran, I will do contracting shit in exchange. I will just be passing through. I gotta a visit in Big Sur, then down to Santa Monica.

Strippa-poe!

@Chester When are you passing through? I might be able to offer a couch to crash on at the end of the summer, but not before. Someone else is crashing on my couch for the time being. But if I'm able, I shall.

@Avery I'm glad your finger has healed from the physical trauma, but has it healed from the emotional trauma? And will it ever?

@Chester- that sucks man. 

@Marius Hjelseth - fail sauce. 

 

Ok here is my last contribution for the June Picture Thread! Kitts and someone else asked for pictures of my new apartment.

I present: The hastily prepared apartment presentation! 

It is still a work in progress. Also I'm a bachelor so there is only so much "fucks" I give. 

Stairway, living room, TV ect ect

 

 

 

 

 

 

Everything in here is blue, but for some reason it looks yellow and green. 

 

 

Alright. I'm tired of uploading shit no one cares about. My last post will be how I started it, my new car, JUST washed and waxed. Sparkle Sparkle.

Usually the walls would be yellow, beer cans everywhere, and ash blasted floors.

And dog poop and panties on a bad day,

I'm staying in the most awesome Navy Lodge ever. I can't post pics because I left the cable to my phone at home...maybe Husband stuffed one in his bag. I can hope. You guys should be jealous of my digs. The hotel is on the beach, we've got a pool, and big for people who have to live in the desert--cool breezes, grass and foilage!

It's on base at Coronado, if we're being specific. They've really gone to town on that Naval Lodge. I don't want to think what a set up like that would have cost a few miles away in San Diego proper.
