chemical billy unmasked

today I had the opportunity to take a few shots of Chemical Billy in her Halloween get-up.

also present was her cat, Blanche.

never kiss a girl with bat wings

monkey 0 found out the hard way.

[udpate - for those of you with low-contrast monitors, click here for a detail. I woke up with a hell of a hangover, and one of those little bracelets that says "I gave blood!" and warns you not to operate heavy machinery...]

mexico: playa del carmen, quintana roo

when I was there, Playa del Carmen was an extremely pleasant place

where I did not take many pictures because I was wandering around sampling the invariably-superb margaritas and eating the world's best tacos at the Taqueria Gomez

(and yes I said "world's best" and yes I mean it and yes I'll go to the mat for that one, so if you have a problem with that I suggest you step up and say something).

the sea was a little ominous for much of the time we were there, what with tropical storm Stan blowing overhead (it wasn't a hurricane yet)

I'm afraid things are a little different now (AP photo, not mine):

shiny. so shiny.

help me choose.

I want to create a page with the viewer favorites from this site. If you can think of any pictures from the past that you feel should be included, please say so. You don't need to find them, just describe them, and I'll dig them out of the archives.

And, now and forevermore, when you see a picture you think belongs in the most-shiny page, please indicate as much.

Yours faithfully, in simian compulsion to take your stuff and eat it or break it,
