    I, too, would be happy to put someone up in my backyard and deprive them of food, for large amounts of money. Wanna start a business together?

  2. Claudia says:

    Wait, I want to be part of the business…can I inflict a little pain, just for fun…too.

    that photo made me lose all of my remaining bladder. I blame you.

    and God.

    That surgically enhanced cat-faced woman is creepy as hell!
    Friend of a friend has too much money and time on his hands. I prescribe a heathly dose of service (she said trying not to sound sanctimonious).

  5. citizen of the world says:

    Clearly, a true spiritual experience.

    BUT, let me just say that I have not even had my coffee yet and the photo of scary cat woman nearly made me jump out of my skin. Gah!

    I don’t know what to say, other than spurting hot tea through your nose hurts. It does.

    the phrase more money than brains comes to mind. i have a backyard full of oaks and hemlocks and a fire pit. maybe i should start my own vision quest business.

    I enjoyed this story. Ah, the romance of the story and your cynicism were brilliantly contrasted.

    i was always taught that when people told stories about ‘friend of friends’ they were really talking about themselves. but i don’t think that’s the case here…

    i hear you like my comments…check out my blog!

    If they don’t like your back yard they can come to Greece and I’ll introduce them to The Mysteries”
    Hell there’s loads of stuff I don’t know!

    (“liumm” – that is my word verification. Do you think it’s some kind of mantra that will make me a better blogger?)

    Wait. Do you have to be 12 to enjoy many-a-private-diddle? Because if that’s true, I’m really immature.

  13. Jonah K. Haslap says:

    Oh and you forgot Bette. For shame.

  14. heartinsanfrancisco says:

    The Bride of Wildenstein, also known as Jocelyn, is so terrifying that I was torn between reading your delightful post and hiding under my desk in a fetal position.

    Cub Scouts and Vodka, huh? Hmmmmm, the Cub Scouts have changed… When I hear about cub scouts, I’m always reminded of Robin Williams’ crack in “Good Morning, Viet Nam,” – “Errnnnt! What’s the difference between the Army and the Cub Scouts? The Cub Scouts don’t have heavy artillery!”

    If your single friend-of-a-friend wants company in Vegas, I’m available? Is he fit?

    Our organization offers a Prophetic Vision and Trench Digging package.

    Prophetic visions not guaranteed.

  18. Jen @ The Cubicle's Backporch says:

    Wow… I bet you could’ve offered it to him at half price and everything!

    If I ever did a vision quest, I better do it alone b/c if I don’t eat something after about 8 hours, I get REALLY cranky.

  19. Minnesota Matron says:

    I want to be partners with Jess. Good idea! I have some children who are good at posing as wild creatures. Hey, I’d also like to fly by my own volition. Vegas, here I come!

  20. Dorky Dad says:

    Crap, I’d put people in my back yard and starve them, but I’d have to charge a fee. Starving people is a lot of work.

  21. SQT says:

    What kind of vision quest told that woman to disfigure her face like that?

    Keep the friggin’ peyote away from me!

  22. chelle says:

    hehe silly friend of a friend!

  23. Karen MEG says:

    Great post!
    Vision quest… you know, I don’t think I ever caught that whole movie.

    Should be interesting should he hit it big on the circuit. What an interesting path (including starvation and hallucinations) to a career change.

    I heard that the past president of my company (which shut down local operations) went on something like that and came back looking gaunt. He’s still looking for work too, apparently. Probably picked the wrong backyard.

    Here is where you start muttering about a fool and his money.

    Unless, of course, you are now going to tell us that he actually WON the poker tournament and now is trying to figure out how to invest his 10 trillion dollars.
