Crazy Is As Crazy Do

sometimes when you live in san francisco and 300,000 people get dressed up for a certain, internationally celebrated street fair, and that street fair just happens to be taking place RIGHT NEXT to where your friends live, well...sometimes you just have to join in.

and so when you hear that they are allowing people to enter said street fair with open containers, you might also think that maybe bringing a plastic cup of champagne with you on your walk to the fair makes a lot of sense.

and maybe you might ALSO think that since your friends don't live so many floors up off the street, that rather than go ALL THE WAY BACK INSIDE (once you've made the loooooong trek down a WHOLE flight of stairs) (after like, 917 glasses of champagne), there might be a more direct way to get that champagne into your plastic cup.

and maybe your friends might encourage your thinking.

now, of course, MY friends would never do such a thing.

but THESE people? the ones in the picture who i have never, ever seen before in my entire life? THEY might do such a thing:






but that's because these people are clearly crazy.

kinda like the freak girl in this photo below, who seemed to think that wearing a cowboy hat and fake plastic monster teeth was a good look.



ah, san francisco. they'll let anyone in.

  2. You look hot in monster teeth! You should wear them all the time!! But who's the dork in the bandana?

  3. Come on, Kristy, we all know those are your real teeth.

  4. This was what I bought my Camel bak pak for! Damn, I'm just sorry I didn't run into you. It was full of Vodka Cranberry. Oh well...next year. I actually like this pic (sans teeth)

  7. That's not the love parade she was went to. It was the ever so hot Folsom Street Fair. I'm sorry I missed you. Damn, it was fun!

  9. Oh, sure, they will let ANYONE in, but later on they won't tie you down and force you to stay... Stupid San Francisco.

  11. for those of you playing along at home and feel left out by the insider jokes:

    el gallo (k's ex)is the one in the window pouring

    ish (k's current) is the one catching (heh heh)

    k is, well you know that one

  12. It's very rare to find a woman who is naughty enough to wear a dog collar these days.

    Ish is lucky.....heh

    ReplyDelete
  13. K, you are seriously hot when your smashed... and Ish.. wow.. he's hot too... hot AND funny... and El.. he could have three eyes and real monster teeth and we would still think he's hot.
    Thanks for making me laugh!

  14. yes, only in SF. And that's why folks love it! You know you are drunk when you actually let someone take a photo like that... :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I want a street party! With lots of booze...and maybe some recreational substances. Halloween can't get here fast enough! These pics are too funny! That champagne pour is a nifty twist on the traditional beer bong get-booze-down-to-friend-one-or-more-stories-below method. And those teeth, rowr!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I just realized I may have abused the use of exclamation marks in my previous remark. And maybe I misspelled champaign. Please forgive me, champaign and street parties leave me with remarkable little restraint.

  17. You know you are drunk when you actually let someone take a photo like that... :)

    At 1:00 PM.

    On a Sunday.

    LOL.

  18. Kristy!! Hilarious as always! I'm going to be up in the city on the 6th, 7th & I leave the 8th. I'm meeting with soneone at my soon to be school, SFSU. My friends are always down for meeting new people & drinks!!

  19. Lalala:

    I'm in a grad program at SFSU and also finished my BA there a few years ago ... let me know if there's anything you need or would like to know, and I'll offer any help I can.

    Um, well, yeah...the whole point of my post was to mock myself for looking so dorky in that photo. I swear there are good pictures of me...
    ...somewhere.

  21. The leather people were awesome!! My favorites were a couple in leather hip-boots, cleavage everywhere, etc. that I saw on BART: they also had a 3-month-old baby, the trendiest/sportiest baby carriage you've ever seen, and they got off the train in San Leandro. Doesn't get more surreal than that.

    The guy in just a codpiece and harness that was hanging out on our stoop was fairly noticeable, too....

    ReplyDelete
  22. i love those pictures!! so sorry to have missed it... maybe next year!

    and, being a profoundly lazy person, i so appreciate innovative ways of making the basic tasks of daily living (such as getting champagne from upstairs to downstairs) that much easier.

    i also like the pictures because you're all hot. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm thinking I might like this San Fran, of which you speak.

    ReplyDelete
  24. That squid joke was absolutely hilarious! I do like the cowboy hat as well, but the vampire teeth by far set my heart ablaze.

    I know! I can only find the ones who wear bit gags!

  26. I know! I can only find the ones who wear bit gags!

    They wear dog collars too, someone just needs to tell them to do it (or put it on them).

  27. So as so many others here do, I read you obsessively. But let me comment on the apparent weight loss. I mean maybe it's the teeth -- or the collar, but I think the last pic you posted of yourself was with your friends before you left your old job...or maybe it was a last hurrah, but your face looks thinner. Congrats!

  28. I just coined a new term which I think may apply to you.

    BILF

    We all know what a MILF is but since you're a Blogger and not a Mother....well, you get the point.

    ReplyDelete
  29. y'all are brilliant. brilliant. And a mighty good pour/catch at that.

    I'm totally steeling this out the window move.

  30. Ok, so I've restrained myself from devulging any inside info, but since it's out there now...I had the privilege of meeting Ish, El Gallo, and another ex-boy of Kristy's, (who shall remain nameless since he hasn't been identified here yet). All in the same evening. All hanging out with Kristy, and all hot, super intelligent, fun guys. It says a lot about somebody when they can get their current and ex's to come to an event together and have a great time. I have to admit, if I ever walked into a room full of women I've dated, I'd think I was having an out of body experience at my own funeral. Good for you Kristy! That speaks volumes about who you are...and who they are!

    ReplyDelete
  31. If I ever walked into a room full of women I've dated I'd think 'Man, small room!'

    Seriously...I didn't play the field much.

    On another note, I've started a new blog called BILF! just for Bloggers I'd like to...well you get the idea.

    There's so many nice, funny, intelligent and sexy bloggers out there I thought it might be nice to have a page for them. No personal info, just a pic and a blogsite. And...since a blogger can be male or female it's open to both!

    (and if you don't like the idea, go to the site and complain. Don't start anything here)

  32. I'm just curious about the rest of K's outfit. Cause we all know it's got to be fab.

    ReplyDelete
  33. dan,

    i can't help but think your BILF thing is pretty funny (and kinda flattering). of course, i expect to be featured. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. shull,

    thanks for the sweet words. yeah, Ish, el_gallo, and TheBoy are quite something.

    for those of you who may be interested - TheBoy is the one who i dated most recently, who made me crazy, and whose breaking up with me resulted in the forearm poetry, etc. as a romantic match we were a TRAINWRECK...which is painfully obvious to me *now*. but is also why we can be friends.

    el_g just rocks for reasons you've all read. he's like a brother to me.

    and Ish? well...*blush* i dunno how much you guys wanna hear about how things are going, so i've been kinda quiet on the subject. but rest assured, he's awesome.

    and i really do love all three of them for putting up with my and each other's company. yay!

    ReplyDelete
  35. K,

    You're one of the first ones I'ld like to...feature! But I would only add you with your permission of course. I've just started so of course no one has stopped by to email a pic. You could be the first and break my BILF cherry!! HEH

    Oh, and I would feature Ish too of course.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Well it's been done! I can't believe I was lucky enough to give my BILF cherry away to someone so famous too!

    Thanks!!

  37. ummmm - is it pathetic that I follow Kristy's adventures, and am obsessed with figuring out who everyone is, including el gallo, ish, mejane, and the rest of your crazy friends????

    I love the inside story explanations!!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. is it pathetic that I follow Kristy's adventures, and am obsessed with figuring out who everyone is, including el gallo, ish, mejane

    Nope, in fact it's encouraged. Just wait until the action figures come out!

  42. Oooops...let me try this again..(damn happy hour)Oh jeez a whole new v-word now.

    Sweetone:
    "...or the porn movies. ;) "

    and they would have to be John Waters style movies to boot!

    and Dan...I like the BILF idea too. I just got a web-cam two days ago so this could be dangerous. I'm trying to figure out a way to put a breathalizer/ disabler mechanism on it.

    I actually laughed out loud when I read that! I think it should be the other way around. You should have a breathalizer/ENabler on it. Otherwise, what's the point of having it?

    ReplyDelete
  44. let me say - I would personally buy both the action figures and the porn movies hehehe


    And I need a breathalizer/disabler on everything, including my cell phone (drunkdials) computer (drunkmailing), and kitchen entrance (drunkcooking)

  45. PS - my mother got me a new fridge magnet. its a mini food-weighing scale with a small weighing area, cleverly monikered "All the Food I'm Allowed to Eat"
