Laying down the Wax.

Here we are in the beginnings of the dance party, before we realized layers were unnecessary.

Here is the unveiling of the holla back shirt. Those ties on the sides were later knotted so mike could really bring his milkshake to the yard.

Here are mike D. and vivienne playing a little DDR with Irene doing some commentary. I am still learning about video editing, so bear with me, the sound may be a little off.

Schuyler and vivienne are discussing something really intensely, probably postulating as to how mike d. got all those moves.

all photos/videos kindly taken by Irene.

Get ready for the hottest party.

This Sunday marked the first Dance Dance Revolution dance party. The evite was created, the guest list chosen, the date and time set. Irene was gracious enough to host, and to even make snacks. As soon as I walked in I knew this was going to be a good time. I had come in sweatpants, but mike d. took dance wear quite a bit further. When I first saw him he had on blue polyester leisure pants with a navy blue bike jersey, one that has pockets in the back, apparently to carry subs, which was pretty awesome. So, we set up the Wii and we started to dance. Quickly we all became way too hot to continue in our early spring wear and mike d. took off his jersey to reveal something that made his outfit even more magnificent. It was a shirt made for a prepubescent girl that was white with blue sleeves and had scrunch ties on the sides. Needless to say it was a bit tight and showed a fair bit of midriff. The crowning glory of this shirt was what was written on the front, "Holla Back". You can imagine the cat calls resulting from the unveiling of this shirt. We dance for at least four hours, with mike d. spurring all of us to dance harder and faster than we ever thought was possible. I will soon post some videos of the event. Stay tuned.

I have done it finally.

Today I have done what I thought was impossible, I have beaten Whitney H. Barnebey at Scrabulous! It took me two bingos, tossing and remained. Tossing was so simple once I saw I could make the word squint. Fantastique! I held him off for the rest of the game, going out in a blaze of glory with remained. I could tell he was on the edge of his seat on this game, trying to put something together, but I could not be stopped.

Ah. I am still riding on this high.

I am digging Al Green

Al Green is awesome. I think his facial expressions are a little crazy in this video, but, that aside, I am rocking out in the laboratory today.
