Seattle. Frogball. [May. 19th, 2003|12:57 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
I spent the weekend (Fri-Sun) in Seattle with Dina (dina).

It was most eventful:
  • party at eli/kailani, erik, & Mike's (rodester) place. saw a bunch of people.
  • visited Amber (hellarad) & Joe (bostonsteamer) at the hospital and saw the twins. i didn't expect to see them moving, making noise, and opening their eyes... very cool.
  • took Dina to a bunch of my favorite parks.
  • spent a number of late hours with lisa working on LJ server maintenance. we're on the road to some kick-ass scalability improvements in the next week. gonna be fun.
  • got my two missing coats back: one from lisa, one from amber/joe.
And best, the weather was great.

Got back today and found whitaker with way less energy than me. We started to play croquet in the yard but eventually made up a new game:

Each player gets 3 croquet balls.
Players get on the side of the yard opposite the pond with spitting frog.
Players drive balls across yard, aiming for the pond.
1 point for in the pond. (balls float too!)
5 points for knocking over the frog. (automatic win... play to 5 points)
If you lose your croquet ball in the dense plants and can't find it in a reasonable amount of time, you play without that ball in subsequent turns, without taking extra shots. (incentive to not lose your balls)


Fun game. It needs a name. I hereby name it, uh... Frogball. Yes.

Hahaha.. that is a wonderful game! But does it only work in your yard or anywhere where they have spitting frogs and dense plants?

Fake frog, but I got a real cherub! I knocked it over and its head fell off, though, so now it's a dead cherub.

I thought a cherub was an angel, so I looked it up...

I knocked it over and its head fell off

Re: hmmmm

Let's make up some drama, eh? That's always fun!

No,

a) I called Leanora while Dina was still there. She lives in the same building. She gave me crap last party for missing her, so I was calling her to tell her I was there.

b) I helped Dina chase down the cab and gave the cab driver instructions. I offered to go a dozen times but she kept telling me to stay. If that's a girl thing (say one thing, want another), well, too bad.

What happened to defending my honor?
I know what's happening- somebody wants to watch the Buffy/Smallville finale on Brad's big tv tonight.
I understand all too well.

Re: braaaad

Okay but only if I can do a load of laundry there. I am going on vacation and there are so many things to do. It's too bad Greenbriar is so SHADY. Dina and I were thinking we could make dinner - she wants you to take 4 chicken breasts out of the freezer.

BUFFY! BUFFY!

holler back
