Posters and penquins and ducks, oh my!



I am exhausted. With a friend, I posted 120 posters advertising our auditions for the next play.















There are strategically placed posting boards all throughout the downtown area, as well as slightly more unortohodox spots...













But it wasn't all work. While we trundled about seeking appropriate posting spots, of course we did some popping into shops to admire all the pretty things we can't afford and I did some Misty-style "oooh clicky" with my camera.

Some artwork lines the walls of one of the alleyways downtown.















A hockey game that even Mr. Scary Duck TM could sink his beak into was advertised on a bar door.














And I found the pinnacle of knapsacks. The penguin pack. They come in all sizes, from a full adult-sized pack down to an eensy weensy one. And the best part? There's a sqeaker in the beak.



And of course, we had lunch...

This all took about 6 hours... and now? Time for a nap...

That backpack is the biznis!

Imagine walking into a business meeting and pulling your laptop out of one of those!

...then squeaking the beak!

Haaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaahahahahaaaaa... :D

..hey, that sounds like a new dance - "just squeakin' the beak".

OK, time for medikashun...

Is it just me, or does the "i" in Oilers look like an afterthought?

And I don't know if the pic is of you or your friend, but in Pic#1 the posterer's posterior is most pulchritudinous.

TC - Isn't it? I'm still kicking myself for not having my camera the last time I visited that store, as they had the whole series lined up on the floor from littlest 'guin to the big'un. It was darned cute, I tell ya!

"Squeakin' the beak" It's the new dance craze, kids...

Nanuk - I agree with you and I'll tell her. But I have one question. How did an ugly word like 'pulchritude' come to mean "beauty, especially a woman's beauty?" I mean really.

And yes, that 'i' does look suspicious, doesn't it?

Kat - YES!! Aren't they splendid? Especially the squeaker.

R-wigglepus - You're asking the wrong person. Why does *anybody* have a hockey team?

And what kind of man willingly plays for a team named the Mighty Ducks? It simply can't be very macho to have your fans chant...

DUCK-IES!
DUCK-IES!

I mean really...
