Meat Piñata

Piñata:

  • A decorated container filled with candy and toys suspended from a height, intended to be broken by blindfolded children with sticks, and used as part of Christmas and birthday celebrations in certain Latin- American countries or at children's parties.

Meat:

  • The edible flesh of animals, especially that of mammals as opposed to that of fish or poultry.
  • The edible part, as of a piece of fruit or a nut.
  • The essence, substance, or gist: the meat of the editorial.
  • (vulgar slang) The human body regarded as an object of sexual desire.

I think it was Dave's idea to take a piñata and stuff it with scraps of meat. I wish I had thought of it. It's one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

A party for the spoken word crowd somewhere in the valley (Pat was there.) After the usual party stuff we all gathered in the backyard to try and bust it open. Everyone took a turn --even the gimp... I forget the guy's name. His occupation involves going under people's houses to retrieve dead animals--I'm not kidding. He had been in a motorcycle accident and had a cast on his right arm and left leg, and used a walker to get around. It was really something to watch him take his turn at bat. Picture this: he's only got one good arm and it's his left. Pillowcase over his head, he's trying to hold on to the walker and the bat while they spin him around 3 times. Quite a scene. He managed to give that piñata a pretty good wack--meat flew everywhere.


La Notte

monica- (14k image)The first Antonioni film I saw was "The Passenger". The "b movie" of a double feature (am I old or what?) I saw with my dad. I couldn't believe he slept through it though now I imagine that most people would do just that.

Actually, I'm not sure if this was the first one --I remember seeing "Blowup" on late night television around this time.

It's kind of corny to have a favorite film I think --I mean, there's just so many good movies, how could one be a favorite? I saw this movie with Tim years ago "L'Avventura". It was pretty boring. At one point Tim went to the can and after he came out he asked "anything happen yet?" My answer was that a helicopter had landed, that was about it --we had been watching the movie for an hour at this point. We didn't finish it. I couldn't stop thinking about it though and later I had to watch it. I still consider L'Avventura" my favorite film.

Just got some email from Milan. This started me thinking [again] about another Antonioni film I saw a few years ago: "La Notte". Need a gift idea for me? Anything by Antonioni would work good...
