Llamas are our friends.

When they don't spit on you, that is ... right? Having never been spat upon by a llama, I can say with some assurance that I'm wholly excited to go to the Llama Fest on Saturday. Never heard of it? Lookit! I'm so excited I could just spit. As long as the llama doesn't, that is. I hear they have impeccable aim.

I love llamas and I love the Llama Fest. God bless the Hare Krishnas, who throw Utah Valley such strange and wondrous parties.

My fondness for llamas was born watching Sesame Street -- that girl going to the dentist and taking her llama with her where they get their teeth cleaned by the same guy (!!!) The great little song: "Me and my llama, me and my llama, going to the dentist today."

Love me some llamas. I've wanted to go to that for ages. Or since last year. Didnt realize it was coming up already.

A baby llama spit on my sister in Peru. I hope to have the same experience.

Marie, I think I know the one you mean.

That's the one! What a trip! I need to remember that the answer to every desire is YouTube. Thanks for the flashback.

I guess the point of the bit was to show kids that the dentist isn't so scary (at least the llama dentist). I"d like to see a llama under the influence of novacaine. Spitting accuracy would go way down, I imagine.

Thanks for the link! I didn't even realize it was this weekend. I'll be there right after I get out of the lake. I love llamas because I have the softest llama skin rug in my living room and I lay on it every day. So I'm not 100% PC. I love that damn rug.

My three fondest childhood TV show memories are 1)Mr Roger's showing us the crayon factory and how crayons were made 2)"Hey you guys!" on the electric company and 3) "Me and my llama" on sesame street.

Sometimes I forget how great it was being 5.

Oh and Llamas are pretty cool too.

My bishop owns the llama farm that puts on Provo's Llamapalooza every year. He gets such a kick out of telling me that story...
