monkeys: variations on a theme

22 06 2009

first, overall recap: weekend jaunt to MD & VA for afore-mentioned baby shower, jungle-themed. these are people who take a theme seriously, and there was serious monkey coverage at this shower. monkeys in the baby-room decor, monkey pinata, bundles of monkey-bait bananas, monkey finger-puppets, monkeys in the animal crackers, monkey baby clothes… kyneburh assured me that dave’s monkey-themed-ness had long preceded the planned arrival of the incoming small person and that the monkey mat in the bathroom had nothing to do with the adjacent nursery. the fact that their wireless has a monkey in its name does kinda back up her story… (more pictures can be found in her friend wendy’s flicker batch, which is where the above link will take you to show you the monkey–and if you go to the end of the batch, you can watch video of dave smashing a hole in the monkey’s butt, which will become also-thematic.)

driving home today from said event i got to meet up with metalmonkey (see?) for coffee in frederick, which turned into iced-coffees-to-go on a quest for arts-research and bridge photography, which turned into 2 hours of wandering awesome. i took pictures (and when you and another person are at a place both taking pictures, you end up taking pictures of object-with-the-butt-of-the-other-person-taking-pictures), and eventually i might get them off my camera, but there’s no hurry, because the ones you want to see are all here (scroll down to get to the slideshow if you’re in a hurry, or read the article to learn about our scrap-of-a-day, if you have three minutes. did i mention my co-wanderer wrote it? and took the pictures? his are phenomenal. GO LOOK AT THEM RIGHT NOW.)

and THEN i arrived back at the house to be mobbed by the two wet baby-pool monkeys who live next door, one of whom was in the pool in power-bandit underwear and the other who was all naked monkey-butt, and they dragged me into my own house to chase the cat and fight over paul’s exercise ball and chow on my chocolate chips and drop things on the floor and screech at their mom across to the other balcony while pushing buttons on my cell phone and otherwise monkey around (which depiction makes them sound annoying, but they were actually thoroughly adorable, and i have a couple of very cute photos of jonas with towel-cape and naked-monkey-butt escher leaning into the bathtub to poke the cat, but i have a vague sense that posting his naked monkey butt on lj might be rude, if not illegal…)

after typing all of the above, i can’t help but hear wahyagar‘s voice in my head from about 1993 saying “sheah, and monkeys might fly out of my butt.”

have you looked at the pictures yet? if not, you are TOTALLY MISSING THE AWESOME. & you wouldn’t want to do that…

it really seems quite all right. but i did tell her i had to take pictures because i was on a mission to gather proof for the incredulous (or the would-be-as-soon-as-they-found-out). 🙂
