Jello Wrestling

My band played an interesting show last night.
The dance floor was roped off and tarped because after we finished (early--yay!) there was Jello Wrestling for girls only. Grand prize was $300 cash, runner-up got a $100 bar tab.
Since the sports bar hosting the event is known for skanky waitresses with their boobs and butts hanging out I guess I was expecting bikinis and model wannabes putting on a show, but these "ladies" were hardcore!
The little one in the pink shirt was waiting her turn and looked pretty intimidated by the much bigger competition, but as the photos below show, when her turn came she fought like a tiger!

Everyone in the band was impressed, and I hope she finished in the money, but I have no idea whether she won or lost because the chance to get home long before 3-4am was too good to pass up.
Even the 69-cent beers couldn't keep me there, and that's saying something!

Due to all of the photos of critters I post to my blogs, our house has earned the nickname "Jumanji".
We're in a seemingly normal suburban neighborhood until you look close.

A list of the local animals I have posted photos of:
Deer and more deer, peacocks, possums, squirrels, toads, a horse, cows, four kinds of lizard, black vultures and other birds, praying mantis, cicadas, wasps, snails, butterflies, spiders, bees, ladybugs, plus cats and dogs.

This pair of whitetails were in the alley behind our house today.
We also have snakes, skunks and raccoons, but they have managed to elude my camera so far.

Bench Plus™

I spotted this polished granite bench at the Botanical Gardens today.
Your guess is as good as mine as to what the protruding phallic thing is all about.
There was no sign explaining it's purpose or the country of origin, but Greek would be my guess for both.

And hell no, I didn't touch the Plus™ part.

I think mimes are dumb. (If you got that, sorry.)
But really, they're of French origin so it can't be a good idea.
Electric blue ones? Strike two.
Corporate Mimes?
You're out!

The OctaPotty

Under the highway interchange where I was taking pictures tonight I noticed the subject seen here.
Didn't really know what I was seeing for a few minutes.

It's the OctaPotty, right?
Eight wedge-shaped portable toilets in a ring.
For the people who're waiting for a bus at the Park-And-Ride.
And for those who hook-up in their cars under the bridge, to dispose of the evidence.

But in a ring?
A little too cozy for me.
