Ginger & The Lost Boys: Three Strange Days...

April 22nd, 2006 (11:28 pm)
current song: The Golden Age, Beck


my god, i need sleep.

It seems, in this Universe we like to call Austin Texas, things happen in clusters of
Serendipity...Friends blow in at the same time--and drag you down laughing even
when you are trying to be a very good girl.

I have been out on the Town entirely too much.
Here are a few of the Usual Suspects:

Andy Porter, MatGas (yeah, it's one word) and 'Gigi'

Trying to get people in the frame of the camera, MatGas insists on representing
himself with a fist, the photographer--Porter, tells me my nipples are showing...

Marshal the Evil Twin, and MatGas

Ben and 'Gigi'

Jim. Fabulous Jim!

I need a new place to base pics, this tapped out my source and I have so many more...
But these were my favourites.

It is always when I am away from those who built the Church of Lovejoys, that sitting
down with them makes me know I have to record all of this. Andy and I and Ben went
to Alamo South this afternoon to watch "THE NOTORIOUS BETTIE PAGE"--I loved what
each of them had to say about it afterwards...

We sat around my tiny flat with Lone*s and told stories, mostly I listened. I learned a lot
today for a woman who is known as THE HISTORIAN...so much still to learn. So much
that needs to be documented--this strange experimental Family. A bar that became my
first real HOMETOWN.

My...Real Home Town.

The circles spiral and connect and my eyes get stars...like a comfortable blow
to the head.

Andrew told a story about his first night working at the resort he is at now, a couple was
sitting there, looking at him. Finally they said: We know you. We are here to
celebrate our ten year anniversary of our blind date. We are married now. You were the
bartender at the place we met at, in Austin. You were our bartender at Lovejoys.

That's enough, right? That's crazy and beautiful. He told me this story over and over on
his visit, I loved the light in his eyes when he did.

I was standing outside tonight, smoking a cigarette in front of the bar we can't smoke in
any more...talking with folks about their bikes parked out front--and Andy dragged a guy
out by his T-shirt--BEAMING.



Rick, I met Rick tonight, The same guy who...blind date?
They were back.

*shaking head*

Full Circle.


Andy...he just happened to be here again, too....

*still shaking head*

Folks, my kidneys hurt, my skin is slick with nicotine-film...
I have been in bars too much of late.

All the right bars.



I'll slow down, I'll catch my breath and my rhythm...
It is just so wonderful to be BACK.

To watch the magic again.
I had forgotten.

I had almost forgotten.

I have sort of a surrogate family back in San Antonio... They're the Montoyas. I was/kinda still am best friends with the 3rd of 7 children. His name is Marc. At two different times in my life I lived with them (for three months each time).

One of the younger Montoyas, Julie, escaped and is going to school at St. Edward's. This, I knew.

What I didn't know is that she now lives downstairs from me, and she works at Opal Devine's as a hostess. And she knows you. And seems to hold you in high regard. Which means she's alright, right?

I used to babysit this girl. (Well, once or twice).

Hah. Hahaha.
