I have returned!


You know how like when you wake up from a deep sleep and then you look down and realize that while you were sleeping someone came and cut off all your arms and your legs and you’re like “Fuuuuuuuuuuuck dude, I needed those.” and you’re like “This sucks. Now what am I supposed to do?” and you want to sit up and go find the bastards who did this and tell them to put your arms and legs back, but you can’t…because you can’t sit up, you can’t move, you can’t do anything except just sit there and stare and curse because you don’t have any arms or legs… and all the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

It was exactly like that. That is exactly what it was like the day I woke up and saw that my computer had died. I was in shock for a long time, not knowing what to do. Without a computer I can’t do my job. Is it all over, just like that?

Knit pickers will pipe up and taunt me with “It didn’t “die”. You KILLED it!”

I will have you know, my beloved Powerbook died of natural causes.

Water is natural.

Ergo, it died of natural causes when I flooded it with water.

I have been offline since the wonderful Aqua Girl parties in May. In fact, my Powerbook died of natural causes halfway through Aqua Girl. I never got to finish the job 😦 And it was a good one.

I have a new Toshiba laptop, I have serious Mac withdrawls, but most importantly I am making preparations to get back to work at Napkin Nights by the end of the month. In the coming days I will also be working on updating this blog and SobeStreets to bring everything up to date.

I look forward to entertaining you all again with my inane mutterings. I do so miss you all 🙂 and I see from the stats that this little blog ‘o mine has been having quite a party without me! Blast! Why am I always left out of the fun bits?

Soon my friends, soon we will be together again.

Aqua Girl 08 – Aqualicious Pool Party at the Surfcomber Resort.
Aqua Girl pool party

I think this is the best party I have seen yet in Miami. Could have used a few guys, but whatever. heh heh

Seriously though, the pool at the Surfcomber was PACKED. I would guess there was easily three times as many people there for Aqua Girl than there was for WMC. I was in awe. Amazing turnout. I wish I was a lesbian because there were some of the most beautiful women I have ever seen. Wow.

My one and only gripe: no shade. Anywhere. For WMC there were lots of places to get out of the sun and cool off a bit. For Aqua Girl the weather was much hotter but there wasn’t any place to escape. I didn’t last barely 30 minutes before I had to call it a day because I was so over heated. And you know you don’t fuck around with our sun when your body says it’s time for a break.

Keep in mind i am the one who likes being hot. I am the one who doesn’t use A.C. in her apartment because even the lowest setting is too cold for me. And I couldn’t take the heat. If there was shaded areas I could have kept working but there was nothing.

I am so disappointed because this was such an awesome fucking party. I could have spend hours working it and still not covered half of the people there.

Boo hiss! 😦

My only consolation is that there were hella lotta other photographers there so hopefully everyone got as many pictures as they like.

When the link is ready at Napkin Nights I will update this post. Then you will be able to view the pics bigga.
Until then, enjoy the little view…

Aqua Girl 08:

Havana Nights at Nikki Beach and Club Nikki with DJ Dezrock and Miss M showcased all the finest Miami has to offer: gorgeous women, hot, steamy temperatures and sexy salsa rhythms to get the hips moving.

The Aqua Girls took over the Penrod complex with parties both downstairs in Nikki Beach and upstairs in Club Nikki. My new favorite DJ played a mix of the best in salsa and merengue blended with a little house music.

PHOTOS – Aqua Girl 08: Traffic Jam at Score



Traffic Jam with DJ Brynn Taylor at Score on Lincoln Rd kicked off the first night of parties for Aqua Girl 08. The ladies wore colored glow necklaces to signal their availability. Green for “Go for it”, Yellow for “Proceed with caution” and Red means “Stop”. Go-go dancers and drag queens Spikey Dykey, Rico Suave and Teddy D performed throughout the night.

Caution!

Aqua Girl 2008


I will be shooting at the Aqua Girl parties this weekend. Pics will be available at the usual places; Napkin Nights Miami, TalkNightlife (in the forum area), and the left-overs in the gallery here at SobeStreets.

On the agenda for tonight:
Curve Magazine | Welcome to Paradise 6:00pm – 9:30pm
Surfcomber Resort
1717 Collins Ave

Traffic Jam 10:00pm-3:00am
Score
727 Lincoln Rd

If you are interested in attending Aqua Girl stop by the Surfcomber Hotel and check in with the welcome center by the pool. It looks like the VIP events are sold out, but some of the other parties still have tickets available.

And now for an interesting coincidence, news just came in from California that their Supreme Court has just ruled that banning same sex marriages is unconstitutional.

I have a feeling the ladies of Aqua Girl will be celebrating even more tonight.

Addition photos from that night will be posted in the coming days.

Keep in mind that tomorrow kicks off Aqua Girl 08. The annual 5-day party for women who love women. Gawkers will enjoy the bazillion hot lesbians roaming around South Beach.

Try not to look stunned, people. We try to be cutting edge ’round here.

Even if you’re not into lesbians, Aqua Girl is something we can all appreciate. All the net proceeds from Aqua Girl weekend benefit the Aqua Foundation for Women. AFW is a not-for-profit-foundation whose primary mission is to promote the equality, strength, health, and visibility of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender women.

What benefits one woman benefits us all, so get out there and support, dammit! 🙂
