Thanksgiving Weekend 2009

Thanksgiving Weekend 2009 kicked off on Wednesday November 25 with an awesome dinner with Anth and his mom Patty. The food and company were both KENtastic!

Thanksgiving Day I took Anth to the airport at the asscrack of dawn (5 a.m.!) and then went home and got some more sleep. I didn't have anything to do in the afternoon so I came to the radio station to get some work done. Shot promo pieces for the Mega Movie on the CW and then ended up being on KGUN9 On Your Side news wearing my super cool turkey hat (see previous post).

Friday brought a regular workday and live Kencast at Monsoon Nightclub for Mega. I did run into my friend Joanne and grabbed a Kenparazzi moment:

After work I made a trip to IBT's on 4th Avenue and ran into two of my friends: Andres and Jason. Time for a Kenparazzi photo! Which, after downloading the picture off of my camera today, wins the award for most unusual backdrop I have been photographed in front of this year. (For the record, none of those people's privates show on the poster behind me!)

Here's Andres and Jason with IBT's owner Mike:

And, in a shocking development, my friend Alex Aikin has returned to work there. He doesn't like it when I take his picture. Here is he running away from me as fast as he can:

I spent the rest of the weekend being lazy. I went to Cosmic Bingo at Casino Del Sol on Saturday night and spent today doing work at home.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Ken Carr on KGUN9 On Your Side with a turkey hat

Jennifer Waddell and Erin Christensen were kind enough to have me as a guest on KGUN9 On Your Side news at 9 p.m. on The CW Tucson Channel 58 on Thanksgiving night. I think it wasn't me they were interested in. It was my super cool turkey hat.

JP, from the Mega promotions department, gets down with glow sticks at Monsoon Nightclub at Desert Diamond Casino. The Kenparazzi captures the moment.

Ken Carr learns to rollerblade

When I lived in California back in the day I tried to learn how to rollerblade. In the house.

I sucked.

Muppets do Bohemian Rhapsody

The Muppets do a cover of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody". It's awesome.

Black Friday at Walmart

I ran across a partial list of items Walmart will have on Black Friday November 27 (the day after Thanksgiving). As you know, many big retailers have "doorbusters" to try and get crowds in early to give the start of the Christmas shopping season a boost. If you are willing to get up at the most ridiculous time on a holiday weekend ever and have a few bucks in the bank you'll score some amazing deals.

The list at Walmart includes:

Magnavox Blu-ray Disc Player, $78
Sanyo 50″ Plasma HDTV, $598
Tom Tom 3.5″ GPS, $59
Barbie Power Wheels Ride-On, $88
Kids’ licensed character sleepwear, $3
Fleece reversible jackets for the family, $7

You might want to take a helmet and wear something really padded to fight through the crowds!

Kenparazzi: Trip to Pinetop, Arizona

I took a vacation to Pinetop, Arizona! I went with Anth and we had lots of fun. And, it wouldn't be an event without Kenparazzi photos!

Driving north on Highway 77.

My own driving frightens me.

A little bit of Ken Carr car maintenance while stopped at a Circle K in Globe, Arizona. I wash windows!

I check my oil, too.

Now where in the hell do I put this again?

Anth and Ken Carr in our hotel room at the Hon-Dah Resort & Casino.

How does Ken Carr relax on vacation? Laying in bed reading the phone book of course.

The view out of the hotel room window.

I'm a sweater wearing ninja ready to pounce.

Little known fact: Ken Carr is the fourth Stooge.

It's soooo annoying that Marilyn Monroe tried to copy my sexy pose.

James Dean is almost as bad ass as I am.

Anth stalks Indiana Jones.

Ch-ch-ch-chillin' on a rock in the Hon-Dah Resort lobby.

We're under attack!

I face the fierce cat!

I can talk to animals. See?

Even fake snowmen get horny.

Anth and Ken Carr havin' fun!

Anth takes a shower.

Lookin' fierce in fake fur.

Does this bring out the color in my eyes?

Fireplace in the Hon-Dah Resort lobby.

The hotel parking lot.

My car gets its own Kenparazzi picture in the hotel parking lot.

We checked out of the hotel and drove about 15 miles east to go have some lunch. We encountered snow!

Since we rarely ever see snow in Tucson, we had to get to stop the car and experience the white stuff!

Throwin' a snowball!

Driving in the snow.

We ended up going to lunch in Pinetop because it was snowing pretty hard east of the hotel. Mama Bear's Restaurant was this cute little local place.

Anth duplicates Leslie's signature drinking move.

Dessert was the best part of lunch. Amazing hot fudge cake and ice cream.

We stopped on the way back to Tucson to take some photos of the amazing mountain scenery.

Anth gets silly for the Kenparazzi.


More scenery.

Noooooo! Don't jump!

We ended the weekend celebrating a fun trip and celebrating Anth's birthday with Jen. Cheers!
