Has anyone seen Tom?

BartWender: Last thing I saw he was grooming himself like mad just for Marianne's party.
Jeez, that tongue of his has seen places you just don't wanna know..

Mermaid Announcement


OK, everyone! Pool Party starting soon at the Salon! 9:30 pm Paris time, 12:30 pm Los Angeles, 1:00 pm New Delhi, 4:30 pm Tokyo, 5:30 am Canberra!


The men of Artwiculate are ba-a-a-a-ck reprising their now-famous Chippendale's dance for their favorite dame, the one and only Marianne whose wit cuts to the quick and has that uncanny way of capturing truth in but a tweet. She thinks she's not a poetess, she, but those of us who see the coruscating flights of her mind's fancies know better. We assumed she's watched brother Jon show his Chippendale's moves ad nauseum so Osmar Jardim gallantly offered (paid us) to replace Jon and dance for Marianne. (And on second thought, maybe the girls can use the Ice Bath we booked for the party too...)

Let's Mango! And Mambo! (Jumbo?)

Let's get this Pool Party started!!! BartWender stocked up on all the good stuff & decided to kick off the party with Fresh Mango Margaritas! So what are you waiting for? Order yours! Love, hugs and body shots!

Care To Join Me?

Oh, yes! The girls, (Katy @Kado56 and Miranda @Tralala56) specifically requested for the Party a Sauna and an Ice Bath (we think the latter's for the guys). BartWender can't say no to the girls, so here we are - cherchez la femme!

Update: Wanda in Texas II

Not too many bears have visited the Texas State Chambers. Leave it to Marcos to take Wanda on a Grand Tour.
Of course Tom, BartWender's cat, felt it needed some Good Ole Southern Karaoke, so turn up the volume, and sing along!

Maybe you should read the book first, before watching the movie. @marcosarroyos wrote:

Wanda signed in as a visitor, then we went to my office. After a few minutes I said, "Let's sneak out of here and go look around." She said, "Yeah, I've never been to Texas before. So we went outside and walked around the grounds. She wanted to sit on a cannon and see what it was like. I helped her up there, but she didn't see what all the fuss was about. "Why do they always have cannons at places like this?" she asked. I really didn't know unless it has to do with phallic contests, but I didn't tell her that. She sat on a bench to catch her breath for a little bit. She thought the Capitol was very pretty, and it is. In fact, it's taller than the one in Washington, DC. We take pride in that here in Texas.

I explained to Wanda that the Texas Capitol is the only Capitol that faces south. It faces that way, so that the Yankees (this is a Civil War and current term) can kiss our ass. Wanda laughed about that a lot.

We saw the rotunda where I took her photo sitting in the center which commemorates the Republic of Texas. Later we went upstairs to see the Senate Chambers. She looked around and said, "Nice place, but so much bad goes on here, I can tell." She's right. They say you don't want to watch sausage being made or watch the Texas Legislature at work. They're both pretty nasty. She took a seat in the back under some photos of recent Senators, but wasn't impressed.

We went down the elevator and ran into a lady I work with named Cheryl. I introduced them. Wanda liked Cheryl and asked for a photo. Before we sneaked back to my office, Wanda wanted to get her picture taken with a bust. No, not that kind of bust, a copper statue thing, you know. Anyway, she picked out this guy with glasses that was a Senator in the Texas Legislature for like 40 years. I told her that lots of dirty money probably crossed his palm.

After work we went home in rush hour traffic. We got home and met Zoe a little girl that Mrs. Arroyos was babysitting for the evening. We all went out to Que Pasa for some great Mexican Food as only you can get it in Texas. Don't tell anyone, but the Mexican food is better in Texas than it is in Mexico. I know, I've had both many times.

Update: Wanda in Texas

Wanda is having a field day with Marcos in the Lone Star State.
She gets a grand tour of the Capitol building in Austin, and a VIP peek into the Holy of Holies of Texan democracy.
Tom, BartWender's cat, did a song and dance about it.

And this is only part one. Stay tuned for more. Mucho more!
She may not want to leave…

Update: Wanda in Oregon

In her wanderings, Wanda spends quality time with Laura in Portland, Oregon.
Krafti_kit kept a visual record, all the way to the creation of a blueberry tart...

Larry King and Sarah Palin discuss Artwiculate

Well done, Planetchopstick (Australian, age 35)
He took the last nine winning tweets on June 29 and...
...well, watch it yourself.

BartWender: I addded a transcript of Lady Palin's musings in comment #2

Update: Wanda in San Jose.

For those of you wondering where Wanda's wanderlust had taken her, here's @ajeanne's update: 
(click the image to really get close to her new friends...)

1. Wanda arrived with her darling suitcase, full of fun things for her trip.
2. Wanda makes friends with Summer & Raleigh, two RagaMuffin kittens who enjoyed her company very much.
3. As she goes out with Mr. Moose, Wanda dons fashionable pearls.
4. She loved the kittens so much, she made friends with Rhapsody's new litter.
5. Little Rodeo, the cow kitty, took a special liking to Wanda. She was like a big sister to him.
6. Wanda and Patriotic Rabbit have a fabulous time celebrating the 4th of July.

We'll miss Wanda here in San Jose, but we know she'll have a great time visiting with Laura up in Portland.

Let the compotation begin!

Nothing but the best for EmmaExpress! BartWender has ordered too many cases of Champagne (hmmm... he's all too eager to keep refilling all the ladies' glasses, keeping an eye out especially for Emma - her glass that is). On the menu today, both boiled and grilled lobster, smoked salmon continental, Bar Twiculate's house recipe of shrimp perfectly cooked in a fragrant broth of root vegetables & cloves served with our secret cocktail sauce, Alaskan King Crab, oysters on the half shell (for Max), and of course, caviar!

A toast to Emma:

Congratulations on getting your Master's, Mistress of Wit! Wassail!

Stay tuned for more libertine debauchery including but not limited to a hot, hot, hot video of Emma dancing the tango... can you guess who with?

****BartWender here.... a glass of Champagne coming right up for beautiful Miranda. You are looking lovely again today, Mademoiselle.

Ready... Set... Tango!

EmmaExpress (looking red-hot!) celebrates getting her Master's on the dance floor with that consummate libertine MaxRaunchiness, showing off his moves. Oh, Max - is your dance card full? Gentlemen -if your ego can acquiesce to granting Emma her earned "touché!" her dance card may accommodate several more roués...
