Birthday/weather report
Happy birthday to the incredible, often inscrutable (and possibly insane but always fantastical) chebutykin!

In news related to last night's storm: About 1/16th of an inch of ice encapsulated most everything before the snow started, then the snow turned into rain. It was worse up North where the birthday party was... once we got back down to my neck of the woods (about 14 miles South) it was 38+ degrees and slushy. What we're left with is like a stale powdered donut -- the white is deceiving, but it's pretty crunchy and not particularly fun but isn't causing any real harm either.

The party itself, however, was awesome. It was a small crowd... myself, lady_curmudgeon, the host and his wife, markvd (aka "the birthday boy"), asetwoman and one of the birthday boy's old coworkers from Addison. In no particular order our activities included: eating fatty foods, watching a DVD about puppets that swear, petting the lampshade cat, eating more fatty foods, mixing drinks and trading stories about old and inept managers. Once everyone was good and liquored up I introduced everyone to Apples to Apples. A-t-A has become my defacto and ultimately favorite game to play at any party where alcohol is involved.

I didn't even catch a buzz. Damn my Irish heritage with the tolerance it bestows upon me. The game was fun anyway, though.

Ditto on the lack of buzzitude. I was just relaxed and having a damn fine time.

Apples to Apples is an awesome game. doomsey's family own a game, but I think that one of these days, doomsey and I need to get our own.

So...a movie about swearing puppets? What's it called? I saw one about six months ago called Meet the Feebles. I guess the best way to sum it up is a very dysfunctional version of The Muppet Show. Oh...and it was done by the same guy who did Lord of the Rings. *boggles*

Ever since we played Apples To Apples at that party for you all those years back I've been hooked.
