  1. FANTASTIC picture! You’ve got TALENT! And as always, GREAT blog. I going to have to check out Stella’s bracelet (might need a set for myself)!

  2. Siddiq’s top 5 favorite memories from the best worst weekend ever:
    1)Funchilde’s views on WONDER Woman magic Lasso belt’s and other fashion anomalies
    2) Stella: “my shoes are made for gawking not walking”
    3) TJ: “How many drinks have I had? I think I’m drunk. I usually dont drink this much. Lets get another dirty martini?”
    4) Our Cop Hostess; “Three, sending in three. You ready for three?”
    5) Stella’s lessons on when/how to tip strippers. “Shes gotta work it… show some enthusiasm.”

  3. Stacey: Damn, I didn’t take that. That one is from Zen on Flickr… and as for the bracelet…DON’T DO IT…small armies of children were employed to mine the ore needed to make that big ass thing.

    Siddiq: Thanks for bringing up some of the funnier moments…LUVED the COP/HOSTESS and I totally forgot about stripper etiquette!

  4. Great Blog, Dia—I am impressed. I feel like I need to step up my game!! Perhaps one day I will be sending you my link for my travel blog!!

    Keep in touch-

  5. I always have terrible trouble with comment-related plugins that require me to put some line in the comment loop; I can never seem to find the right spot. Can anyone tell me where I should put the php line in my comments loop? I haven not modified anything much, and I would be very grateful. Thanks!
