Chicken hat celebrates the Moon Festival!

Chicken Hat and Friends of Chicken Hat went out to the Steens to watch the full moon rise over the Alvord Desert. And a fine time was had by all. We had everything we needed:

The tea,

The mooncakes,

The Chicken Hat and the the Chicken Hat BFF,

The moonrise—I was really surprised at how well this worked—handheld at 1/60, with the flash lighting the desert floor,

(The bad compression job is by blogger, not by me.)

And the Friends of Chicken Hat,

Oooh, my first tag!

My Egghead over at The Last Bedroom tagged me, for 7 Facts About My Intriguing Self! Now, how about that? I'm happy to oblige, of course.

One: I'm a member of Hensa, a group of highly intelligent birds.

Two: My hobbies are looking pretty and going to the theater, but I have a Day Job too, and that is to keep my Egghead's, um, head, warm.

Three: I have no teeth, not even really little ones.

Four: My best friend is a tea cozy.

Five: My other best friend is a lumpy.

Six: I was born at Liv & Lotus's, and I had many sisters and, uh, more sisters.

Seven: I was custom made for my Egghead's especially large and oh-I'm-allergic-to-wool head! So you know I really am special.

Well, I guess my seven is up. But I think maybe I'll play this game again and tell you even more fascinating things about myself!

Chicken hat goes to a fancy party

It was as fancy a party as chicken hat had ever seen! So many people there. There was food, alcoholic beverages (but chicken hat did not partake), and there was even gamblin'! A very bright light was going off every few seconds all around chicken hat and all around the room. Chicken hat was getting a little confused what with all the bright lights, but she has recovered.

Chicken was served at dinner...hmmm.

But, on the bright side, chicken hat has a new fancy coat, which she wore to the party. Ignore the egghead between chicken hat and the coat, please.

Life of the party

A lampshade wearing chicken hat.

And later, chicken hat courageously rode the roaring lion garbage can. Kids, don't try this at home!
