How many of the rest of you hung out with Jesus clowns this weekend?

Jesus Loves you Clowns

No? Nobody? Well I did.

I also hung out with Slash, his busty girlfriend, Florence Henderson and Cheer Bear

Rock Star Girlfriend all right.

500 fesival balloon



Oh, where was I? That’s right.

500 Festival Balloon

That’s right, the 500 Festival parade, you know, the whole Indy 500 thing that happened on Sunday?

See, here’s Danica Patrick. She’s totally fierce.

Danica Patrick

Speaking of fierce, HOLY WINNER OF ANTM!

ANTM Cycle 10 winner, Whitney

Not so fierce…these dresses.

There were DOZENS of these.

Also not fierce. This job.

Ever feel like this is your job.

But alas, he was getting paid for this. I do it for free.

Speaking of free, here’s Uncle Sam.

Uncle Sam

He got a little tripped up just past Monument Circle. I was hoping he’d bust free but they got the balloon under control. Darn.

300,000 people go to this parade. I pretty much had the sweetest seat in the house.

Parade self portrait.

Unfortunately the first parade the moosh ever went to was the Parade of Dreams at Disneyland. She pretty much thought this parade was a snooze fest. Bummer.


  1. I know it’s childlike, but I love parades. LOVE THEM. You most definitely had a fabulous seat.

  2. Parades rock!

  3. I’ve lived in Indy almost my entire life, and I still have never made it out for the parade. Jealous! Great pics…

  4. I don’t get the Jesus clowns. Also, Whitney looks much less “plus sized” than when she was on ANTM. Hmmmmm…. I can’t imagine anyone in the fashion industry encouraged her to lose some of the weight that made her so “juicy.” OK… done with the snark. Did you go to the race?

  5. Nothing is going to beat the Parade of Dreams. Jesus the Clown kind of squicks me out, but to be fair, all clowns do!

    The parade was pretty good this year. Not as many stars as last year but, oh well. I guess you can’t have McDreamy and McSteamy two years in a row. We found great seats on the circle right next to some Jesus clowns. Gotta love taking the family out for a nice day in the city and being told they are going to “that bad place” for watching TV.

    Our family had a great time.

  13. I didn’t know such a parade existed! Too bad all other parades were ruined for the moosh, because that one looked like a hoot.

  14. There’s Jesus clowns, now? That is one wacky place you live in, my friend.

    andi’s last blog post..Ah, retirement

  15. I’m envious of your nice weather. We’ve had rain, rain, and more rain here. I need me some sun!!

  16. Yeah, there’s nothing quite so anticlimactic like having starting your parade-watching career with the Parade of Dreams.

  17. Aw c’mon. Florence Henderson in one of those dresses? Totally fierce. Or scary. Is there a difference?

    NotSoSage’s last blog post..Alter Ego Follow Up

  18. Um…Jesus…clowns? Is that what it sounds like? Seems a tad sacreligious, if you ask me. And I gotta say, The Parade of Dreams sets a pretty high bar. But some of those floats were awesome, and those dresses looked like they were made of frosting or something.

  19. Those are the Azalea Trail Maid’s dresses from my old stomping grounds in Mobile, AL!

    Yes! They’re hideous! And cost as much as a compact car to make!

  23. Okay definition for the loosers out there…uh, me. Fierce ANTM? Is it a text thing, cuz I am so BEHIND.

    good&crazy’s last blog post..How’s about THIS for dinner?

  24. The only parades we have are pretty much John Deere tractors and horses. Color me jealous.

    And Danica SO got the shaft. (My mom’s a redneck. I was forced to watch the race on cable.)

    Sweet shot on that last one. How creative.
