Boobies and Buses, down by the river and across the country
The SNL sketch where Matt Foley (Chris Farley) does his "living in a van down by the river" bit is one of the only sketches in history that makes me roll on the floor laughing every time I see it. His exuberance makes it timeless. I feel similarly exuberant about any living space wholly unique: converted school buses (above), converted schoolhouses, churches, treehouses, you name it. This bus even has a wood burning stove, making it perfect for frosty nights down by the river.
Wish me well, my friends, this is my final post before I get my boobies checked out (there seems to be a small lump) and with the masterminded planning of a genius, I leave right after the exam to drive 26 hours to Las Vegas for 14 scheduled photo shoots in 4 days. I'll be an exhausted bugger, but I fully intend to post some images from the trip (I'm driving through Colorado and the magical part of Utah) and some images from the shoot: it's a cowboy-kitsch-bohemian-wanderer theme, with costumes, props, and some lovely friends.
