It’s Friday evening, the wedding party is having their way with our backyard, and I’m doing my official duty as WNIC by guarding the house and working up an appetite (that’s what Lain hired me for, obviously).
What a perfect opportunity to blog!
Last night I put on my Thursday best and attended a gathering of artists, writers and other impressive characters in Decatur for the annual Decatur Arts Festival Poster Unveiling.
Hey! Does that mean someone important stands at the front of a crowd and pulls a big sheet off of a poster, amid gasping and fainting?
That’s exactly what it means!
As I stood with my new friends from the Decatur Arts Alliance and Lampe-Farley Communications outside the soon-to-be Depeaux (French spin on “Depot”) restaurant in Decatur, I watched with baited breath as a blue velvet drape was pulled off of this fine piece of artwork:
St. Petersberg-born Sergey Cherep couldn’t have captured the historic Decatur train station better. But the art of unveiling, my friends, is what really got me.
First I gasped. And then I fainted!
And then, as I munched on crawfish tails served in a complimentary upside-down Depeaux frisbee, I had a great idea: why not have our own unveling?! Wren’s Nest team Lain, Jeri, Miss Nannie, Star and myself are currently knee-deep in preparations for our own very special event, and we could use some hype.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Wren’s Nest Fest 2007 Flyer Unveiling. Right here on this very blog!
Okay. You’re going to have to bear with me for a second. First, please close your eyes. Now scroll down.
Wait, you can’t scroll down if your eyes are closed! Just scroll very slowly, while picturing a blue velvet drape being removed from the screen…
Wait for it…
Here it is! The official flyer for Wren’s Nest Fest 2007!
I know, you’re clicking your heels like Brer Rabbit over the pony rides. And I haven’t even told you that we’re going to have bunnies, and cupcake decorating, and a moonwalk!
Now I’ve really got you gasping and fainting.
Stay tuned for more on this exciting event, and please, don’t hesitate to print out the above graphic and flyer your school, library, post office or neighborhood park.
WNF 2007, baby!
