CREATIVE MEET UP 

Kickstart Notes 7/21/2015

 We had a high old time, most of us were early and ate Chinese food together.  We started out discussing our news and status of different projects.  Dave O is back and he shared a great story about the history of a headless crash test dummy and a watermelon.  This dummy had a varied and busy career, and on this night, he was the center of a sting.  They were successful and he only needed a new melon.  Since he was on a roll reading, we had him read Dave the poet’s contribution.  They were so much fun I forgot to take notes, and then Dave O took them home to read again.  His pawnshop poem left us speechless, short and to the point.  We all agreed that his piece, The Market, might be one of his best so far.  Everyone got into that one, although I was also partial to Congress and his clever truth telling.  Orion wrote a clever piece about a classroom and bigotry.  The silver robots will learn that the crash test dummies deserve respect.  They have a difficult job and deserve acceptance.  Celena had a wonderful story about a visit to a mysterious pawnshop with an 80-year-old Elvis and strange merchandise.  Toni offered another chapter of Mildred the undercover casino security.  She has put together her third disguise, Bambi Hunter, who crawls through the bars in the darkest hours.  Rob/Bob surprised us with a new story.  Dr. Carl Manning is trying to work up an article, and it isn’t working.  As he answers the door, an apartment building explodes knocking him and his guest to the floor.
