So you want to fit a vagina sculpture

You may have seen in the news recently that an American exchange student got stuck trying to fit in a vagina sculpture in Germany.

The artist, Fernando de la Jara, had this to say, “It’s participatory art… It should be entered.” It’s just that, since the sculpture was installed in 2001, no one’s actually gotten stuck. “I believe [he got caught] because he had a lack of coordination” de la Jara said. “Or maybe it was a lack of sensibility.”

Leave it to experts, kiddo. THIS is how you fit a giant vagina sculpture.

Been there, done that.

I Can Fit in a Firetruck

This post has been smoldering for awhile. It took a few months to sniff out the photos (note to self: use only my camera).

A great thing about my neighborhood is that everybody knows each other. We have a neighborhood contact list. And block captains. And block parties. I have never experienced this before.

On Independence Day they (the block captains?) get a permit to shut down the street to cars, and everybody brings food, and one of the People With Children rents a bouncy castle for the whole neighborhood, and everybody gets drunk by noon on Chardonnay, and nobody has to drive anywhere. It’s fun, in a suburbia kind of way. And people seem to like us.

Anyway, there’s an initiative here on the peninsula to raise awareness about the dangers of fireworks – like hey don’t shoot off bottle rockets and accidentally burn down an entire wilderness area. If you contact the fire department and let them know that you’re having a block party, they’ll send a firetruck to visit your block.

As this is a Public Relations effort, only the hottest of firefighters are out representing the department. Kids love it!firetruck 2

The ladies love it. firetruck 3

I too approached the handsome fireman for a picture. firetruck 4

Note: The key here is Surprise. If you ask permission ahead of time, people tend to come up with a reason to say No. But if you ambush someone with a strange but innocuous request, they’ll say yes before they can think of a good reason to say no. But you have to be fast about it. Hence, Flash Fitting. Take this guy for instance. He’s like, “What the F is going on here in the suburbs?” firetruck 6   firetruck 7 Happy 4th of July!
