Hanging with the Sea Lions at the Saint Louis Zoo

I like going to the Saint Louis Zoo when it's cold out because then there aren't any humans around ruining my animal time. Sure it limits which animals are out and about but I'm willing to make that sacrifice.

I knew the penguins would be partying so we headed there first. Their enclosure is fun because there are lots of them playing around and doing penguin things. Unfortunately it also encloses their smell.

We popped into the birdhouse right when they were being fed. It was a hoot watching all the weird things the birds did while impatiently waiting for their lunch.

This guy's bill was so giant he had to turn his head sideways just to get the food out of his bowl.

The great hornbill has a weird lookin' horn indeed. It looked sort of like a fake papier mache thing up close.

The sea lions are by far my favorite. I think maybe they feel neglected or bored or something due to the lack of people around so they are super excited to play. I wish I could throw treats over the side.

These two were really funny, they were biting each other's tails and spinning around in a circle. After watching them and playing with them for a while they felt a lot like dogs that just happen to live underwater.

United We Brunch

I did a little side job with the Riverfront Times. United We Brunch was a fun little event at the Chase Park Plaza. Mimosas were had.

I helped with a little of the break down after the event was over. I was strongly considering taking an ice sculpture home with me and putting it in the bathtub. They were pretty heavy and I parked pretty far away... so I settled for watching the ice men murder them.

Warhol Meets Lichtenstein at the Saint Louis Art Museum

The whole crew popped over to the Saint Louis Art Museum to see some arts. This time the special exhibit was entitled Graphic Revolution: American Prints 1960 to Now.

I must've been startled by how lifelike Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup II felt in my soul.

Jenna was there.

Soulard Onesie Bar Crawl Strikes Back

We had so much fun at last year's Soulard Onesie Bar Crawl, also we bought onesies and so need to use them as many times as possible, in accounting that's known as a fixed cost and so the more times we wear them the "per wear cost" goes down on average, as opposed to say beer which in this case is more of a variable cost in that we buy it every time we go out, anyway we went to the bar crawl again. Fun was had.
