Crayon on Parade (Part V) - Hooter's Edition

Poor Plum got lost on his way home, so GreenEggs and I went to Hooter's in his memory.

A moment of silence for Plum........ :(


I wonder what the crayon mortality rate is going to be in going from point A to point B.


oh Plum we hardly knew Ye.

GreenEggs248 08-22-03 01:06 PM

It was the Hooters in Frisco.
Please a moment of silence to reflect on Mr. Plum's short life.
A Father should never outlive his crayon...

Venusian 08-22-03 01:08 PM

wait, is that one waitress holding a crayon?

bigsoos, did you not get a crayon?

Canis Firebrand 08-22-03 01:09 PM

I'll have some more pics to post when I get home from work.

I got a pic of Granny Smith Apple(Vertie) buckled up in my passenger seat.
I also got some pics while driving back to work.

I have a couple of road signs I know I have to get a picture with.
8 Mile, Welcome to Michigan, etc.
One that I'm sure everyone will get a kick out of, and no spoiling it any of you that know which freeway sign I am speaking of :lol:

I used to mail my mortgage payment to that road (ABN-AMRO) in Troy. ;)

I would post a pic of it, but am too scared to search for it while at work. :lol:

Eh, if they did so what? :) Actually, it was a great way to get girls to pose for pics. I am getting a crayon too, but mine hasn't come in yet.

Another pic from last night. So chick came up to a guy at our table and swore she knew him from somewhere. She wanted to take a pic w/ the envelope too!:

I wonder if any customs agents thought wtf when they inspected the letters to find a crayon. :lol:

seester 08-22-03 03:31 PM

I'm pleased to say that "Cold" Magenta has arrived safely and was not at all melted even though it is still HOT here. Pics should be up in a few days,waiting on my other forum buddy to bring his camera.

Well, Tangerine Atomique and I had quite a day. First, I must confess. I was a bad father today and nearly killed him. I had an interview to go to, but rather than bring AT along, I left him in the car. It was overcast, and slightly raining, so I thought he'd be ok. Temperatures were probably in the low 80's. Sadly, while I was in the interview, the sun came out and very nearly killed him. I came back just in time to avert a tragedy. A few minutes under the air conditioning vent revived him, but I'm sorry to say that he is no longer extra pointy.

At any rate, here's today's pictures. We also hung out under a black light to verify that he does indeed posess quite the 'glowing' personality. Sadly, the lady at Spencer's didn't take kindly to me taking photos and I didn't have any cash to slip her to make her go away. Oh well, another time perhaps.

First, here is Tangerine Atomique outside Britannia Manor. For those who don't know, this is possibly the coolest house in all of Austin. It's owned by Richard Garriot, who founded Origin and wrote the original Ultima series of games. It's got a dungeon complete with skeleton, secret passages, an observatory, and gargoyles along the roof, among other things. Of course, I'm not allowed inside and you can't see much from the front.
http://65.65.104.50/crayon/crayon07.jpg

And this is the other side of his house. You can see the observatory easily and if you look closely, some of the gargoyles.
http://65.65.104.50/crayon/crayon06.jpg

We also went up to Mount Bonell park, which has some of the most scenic views of Austin. Here's a really good picture of Atomique melting on a rock, and you can see the unique Loop 360 bridge in the background. This overlooks some of the most expensive property in all of Austin. Atomique wanted to take this picture to show his french buddies that Texas isn't all flat, or all ranches, or all full of cows.
http://65.65.104.50/crayon/crayon08.jpg

Here's one overlooking downtown Austin. I need a better camera and day with less smog.
http://65.65.104.50/crayon/crayon09.jpg

And this is him back home, playing around with his sister Allie.

It seems that you are quite fond of chickens. Do they live in fear?

Doesn't Michael Dell live in or around Austin? You mean to tell me that some other computer nerd has a nicer house than him?

getting ready to take Blue out in the city today and i go to pick him up and realize.....

:eek:[gasp in horror]that my boyfriend wrote with him!!!!![/gasp in horror]:eek:

i was mortified. after the necessary yelling, i was glad to see Blue is still pointy and will hopefully overcome this horrific trama.



pics to follow later today.

I didn't say it was the nicest house, I said it was the coolest. From everything I've heard, Richard throws the best parties, and his house is filled with some of the most unusual stuff you'll ever see inside a private residence.

I had trouble finding a page describing his house, but here's a letter written by a guy who helped throw one of Richard's Halloween parties. It describes the house (and the party) fairly well.

But, I do know where Michael Dell lives now. In the picture with the Loop 360 bridge, it would be just off to the left. Perhaps I'll drive down there in the next few days and check it out.

He's taking out his girl hands frustration on Blue isn't he?

Cusm 08-23-03 12:46 PM

Is there a catch and release policy for these? Kinda like an exchange program? I have some sights I would be interested in sharing with a less fortunate crayola. Plus there are 3 Hooters in OKC.

Woman hands has got to go. Sometimes you have to break off a relationship for the good of the children. This is one of those times.

Oh. Well, all I needed to read was that he has secret passages in his house and I was sold. :up: Ever since I was a kid and I saw <B>Webster</B>, I've always wanted secret passages in my house. My friends think I'm crazy for wanting secret passages, but I think they're cool. :D
