prize winning rubber sushi
we had an austinmodhouse karaoke festivus party. we gave out rubber sushi to the two top scores for the evening. Joy and Sarah are the proud owners of a set of made in japan sushi erasers.
the kids had the room first.
stephen in karaoke glory.
barbara and "I got you Babe"
the dude in his illuminated jacket working the Blue Monday (new order)
these two found my daughter's art work for sale. they purchased THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX and SOMETIMES, COLOR EQUALS JOY.
she tried to purchase one of mine but I refused all offers. austinmodhouse architect Mark Meyer found the scale between the pint and the protagonist to be off. Mark is an architect and if he has the scale wrong in his drawings, there might be some unsatisfied customers. not so in art. I stand by my work. I justified the scale by noting that most bars serve a pint in a 14 oz glass, so that drawing might just be a protest to my missing 2 oz x pints consumed.... it might add up.
another wave of kid karaoke. at one point there was a room full of kids SCREAMING "WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT! NO! WE AIN'T GONNA TAKE IT, WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT, ANY MOOOOOOORE!" I saw parents become uneasy as the future rebellion is now firmly seated.
the party went on till 2am. a cold front moved in and we ended the night with a nice fire in the screen room.
everybody (including baby) slept a good solid sleep. I woke up feeling better than I had in weeks! it was a festivus miracle. I let kat sleep in while I built a fire, made biscuits and coffee. the dude scores some points!
their enthusiasm is still dedicated to iphone games.
we watched I am legend in the afternoon. We thought it was a sci-fi, turned out it was quite the zombie moive. It was effective on a 100 inch screen via bluray player. the new sealed 15" 350 watt sub really flexed it's muscle. I witnessed kat JUMP and I felt the back wall of the media room deflect a good quarter inch from one HUGE thump when a zombie lunged at the hero. as the movie ended the sun started to set. it had all seemed SO real. it was a bit unsettling for us to consider going out into the dark. we managed. we were glad the kids didn't see the movie. I think they would have voted to boycott our evening plans.
we went to some friends house for caroling in the cul de sac. they live in an AD Stenger they just renovated.
daughter found some friends and they sang around this tree.
all the singing over the past two days had made our throats a bit parched, maudie's helped us out. kat enjoyed a huge bowl of tortilla soup made just the way she likes it; clear chicken broth and not too salty.
the little dude seems to have noticed his styrofoam cup does not have as much bling as a shiny stainless steel shaker.
