Still Life

When I was in 8th grade I went on a band trip to California and one of the days was spent at the San Diego Zoo. I ended up putting my film to good use that day because I think I pretty much got a picture of every animal there (and then some). No pictures of me...or friends...just giraffes, elephants, porkypines you know... Once developed, I put each and every photo into my sticky album as a reminder of my fabulous day. Years later when I refound that album I remember thinking "Whaaattt.....was I thinking?? Who the crap are these animals?!!" I have a feeling this post might be slightly reminiscent of that zoo.......

But honestly, we just couldn't help ourselves. And this, my friend, is only about a fourth of the monkey pics.

"Who is he Jen?"

For Jayne!

(I'm talking about the twins)

(I knew it!)

Oh Michael where'd you go?

African American/Bulgarian American

Look at me when I'm singin' ta you!

This one's real. He was a lounge act at the Flamingo and he invited me onto the stage
to sing "Raspberry Beret!" It was sooo incredible and I sounded great! He asked me to go on the road with him (you know Apollonia II) but Nick said I had kids to raise (meanie!).

Adios hometown! Muah!

Wax museums freak me out! I am so glad you guys had a ball in there, because me, I would have my coat tightly wrapped around me and walking very slowy. Maybe not even walk in. Yes, I am weird, very weird. Looks like you guys had a ball down on the strip. Good for you! -Suzanne

Fun pic's! You definitely could be a Bond girl! Nick could definitely be gay. ;)

So cracking up at your post and at Jill's comment!

I too have many of those zoo pictures, and thought the same things you have..

The wax figures all look great!
I wish you would have posted Brad Pitt. My favorite...

Sorry about Prince. Maybe you could have talked him and Michael Jackson into doing a SLC tour?

And of course Simon is always SEXY!

Fun post Jen. I really liked that museum. I would have never touched one of them, let alone all of them.
Glad you had a good time in Vegas, it was fun seeing and being with you.
