It is that place
where blue bird
rests on callused
heart. Comfort
now. That empty
place. Hardened
fast. Past weak
tenderness of
yester’s dream.
It is that place
you wished I’d
softly stay.

Visiting the R.I.M. Gym

I have been barraged with postcards and flyers and emails from vendors in the last couple of weeks. The vendors are gearing up with promotional material for the conference in San Diego. Out of about a bazillion cards…20 trees later, one actually got my attention. I will visit the “R.I.M. Gym” (booth 1331) “for a quick workout.” It takes a lot to get my attention, but I’d say Kaizen InfoSource pulled it off. Kaizen gets an A+ for a fresh guerrilla marketing weapon. Are the services they offer any good? That’s to be determined, but after poking around some tonight, the business seems to be a trusted resource by ARMA San Diego. The business has been involved in some digital initiatives there.


Becoming Poison Ivy: Makeup Arsenal

After work I secured the final items needed to fully arm my Poison Ivy makeup arsenal. I purchased a few things over the weekend, but I needed to expand my “green” color palette. Today I bought an eye shadow base so the makeup will pop, but the lady from Ulta called me on my way home and said she forgot to put it in my bag. I’ll stop and pick it up on the way home tomorrow. I’m also planning on adding some glow in the dark touches to my makeup scheme!! Can’t wait for the January ComicCon in ABQ. Sadly, I will miss the SF ComicCon while I’m in Cali this weekend.

Jason Momoa did New Zealand’s Haka ritual as his audition for ‘Game of Thrones’

Awesome!!! I want to visit New Zealand some day. It would be cool to see Jason M perform the Haka battle ritual, but I want to see real Maori warriors. ~~~F

Originally posted on For The Win:

Game of Thrones fans will recognize Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo, the physically massive and usually grunting Dothraki warlord who made such an impression in Season One.

In this YouTube clip from 2012, which is just now making the rounds today because who knows how the internet works, Momoa auditions for the show by doing the Haka, an old Maori ritual typically performed before battle.

You all know it as what the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team does before games.

Momoa isn’t a Kiwi — he is from Hawaii — but he clearly nailed it, got the part, and the rest is history.

“I think I’ve had a change of heart. Quite literally. The animal-plant toxins had a rather unique effect on me. They replaced my blood with aloe, my skin with chlorophyll, and filled my lips… [she passionately kisses him on the lips] with venom.”
