Eleven Things I Learned at Last Night's Blog Party

  1. Besides the Blood family's general hospitality and good nature, their home includes the following features that make for an ideal Blog Party location:
    1. A dog to distract the little Fobs.
    2. Cookbooks to keep the conversation going.
    3. A Wii to distract the grownup Fobs.
  2. Everything is curry.
  3. After eight years of school and a master's degree, FoxyJ has found her true calling: cow racing.
  4. It's fun to have children at a party, but it's even more fun when after a couple hours and they're getting cranky you can send them home with your sister.
  5. Darrin and Samantha Stevens are even more delightful in real life than they are in the blogosphere. Enough so to keep us standing in the street talking for two hours after we decided it was really late and we should get home and in bed.
  6. In a room with three married couples--one married for more than twenty years--the two most compatible Bungee Buddies, as determined by advanced supercomputer technology, were two guys who'd never met before: Iwonder and Edgy Killer Bunny. Go figure.
  7. Although they may appear different on paper, Absent-minded Secretary is actually pronounced identically to Darrin and Playasinmar.
  8. Assigning random Wii names to a group of ten people who don't all know each other very well and already have two names each can be rather confusing.
  9. Playa spends way too much time practicing dance moves with his Wii.
  10. According to Attemptingthepath, even the Lord's Bookstore can have server problems.
  11. I am the master of electric hockey. Even when I lose.

Too late! Your secret is OUT!

HAHA you lose!

And technically, it was "Laser Hockey". Just to be technical. Plus, the word "laser" is so much cooler.

Yeah, so it was lots of fun. Which is odd, because I usually hate parties. I am thoroughly introverted and usually feel totally uncomfortable and asocial. So congrats on a party that even I could (and did) enjoy.

Me too.

I had to have Edgy explain all the names and nyms again to me after the party, because of the three identities that we had going on. :)

AND I just realized that we missed out on a great party activity. Yesterday was Bad Poetry Day.

So, sad. I really haven't been a good almanac lately.

"Playa spends way too much time practicing dance moves with his Wii."

This statement is even better when heard and not read.

It was a pleasure to have you guys.

And it warmed my little Nintendo-loving heart to hear her reconsider her video game ban.

bawb said...

Erm, Foxy, that is.

Edgy said...

That was just heaps and heaps and heaps o' fun. I am so buying a Wii now. I must have one.

playasinmar said...

Wii = Party.

And everyone loves Party.

oh no! I forgot!

It was great to see you guys again.

Also, you guys throw the best kind of parties. There's always good food, and the house doesn't look like it has exploded when all the guests leave, unlike when I throw a party. I think I need to start having Fob-style parties.

My old, married self had way too much fun. More entertaining than the Wii were the people playing it! I could have stayed in the street at least one more hour. Like my homonym, Absent-Minded Secretary, I had to have Sam tell me about everyone and their blogs later. I am such a bad blogger. Thanks for a great evening!

I, too, am an avid fan of cow racing. Scarecrows cower before me!
