Pillowfights and the Un-welcome

| 36 Comments | No TrackBacks

Angela arrived today. Flew in on a big jet plane.

We ran a few errands and came home to a house full of Africans who were rapidly spiralling out of control.

Marc was downstairs trying to make pizza with Dave; Natalie and Charmain were upstairs in Marc's bed having a pillowfight with Tom.

South Africa had just beaten Australia in tri-nation rugby (SA, Oz + Kiwi) and the Africans were jubilant and boisterous.

Later, we went to a party...but we got thrown out because, um, certain members of our party were obnoxious and loud. Not me, of course. I'm an angel! Oh, Angela's an angel, too. :)

We came back to my flat and were having a good time - and one of my upstairs neighbors yelled at us for being loud. At 2215.

Okay, fair enough, she was trying to sleep, but who goes to bed at quarter past ten at night? The sun is still almost up, for Christ's sake.

Natalie and Charmain attempt an early assault on Tom...and it goes horribly awry. Tom takes the upper hand.

Natalie, Charmain and Tom take a brief rest between rounds.

Even as Natalie and Charmain are celebrating their early victory, cracks in the alliance are beginning to show.

Tom realises that sometimes the losers are winners and dances the dance of the vanquished, celebrating with Charmain.

Natalie charges in with a surprise comeback, betraying her previous sister in arms...

and emerges as a clear winner!

does anybody else check the blogs (besides kristen) via the last modified button link (yes, you can bookmark the page after clicking "last modified" and then you will always know which was the most recently updated and then you can work backword from the most recent until you hit one you're familiar with.

What? where? How?

Oh! It's great. Across the top of the blogs page are the links Name, Last modified, Size, & Description. If you click on Last modified, the blogs are listed (you've guessed) in order of when they were last modified. I bookmarked the page like that, and it allows me to be that much lazier. : )

The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it'll do even better in those areas, but for now it's a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard.
