Random Snapshots

Not photographs, mind you. ;)

All you need is:


Dance of the slightly naughty fairies:


This one made my eye feel weird afterwards and was probably bad for my lens. I don't recommend trying it at home.


Counting pendulum cycles: 12, 13, 14. . .


Uh, start over :-P


We got together last Friday to do a late Christmas with friends. The kids all got Nerf dart guns. Woo hoo!!


Of course, MuNKi and I have been playing, too. I decided to leave the devil eyes on Fishy because they're appropriate for war.


No one is safe.


And you may find yourself under fire at any moment. (See how handsome BILLY is, standing so suavely next to the Mollusc?)


Friendly fire sometimes goes astray. But so far nothing's broken.


I highly recommend stocking up your armoury with these things as well as with a passel of the nifty novelty darts such as the whistling darts (so your enemy can hear his fate just before it catches up with him) and the velcro ones, which stick in a very satisfying and amusing fashion to fleece, socks, and the random peeking out G-string. Don't bother with the glow-in-the-dark ones. They fly poorly.

We had a huge class tonight and then 11 people stayed for sparring, so we got to free spar. I clonked knees with at least 2 of the guys I sparred. My knees both hurt a LOT, but at least it's only bruising, and you should see the other guy. ^_^

I think my brother and I (or maybe it was friends of ours) once had a Nerf gun or two. It was fun until we managed to lose all the darts.

Great pictures as always, C.
Your home is quite the warzone.
And somebody is trying to hypnotise the cat.
Have a lovely weekend.
And be careful with that nutcracker kick. ;)

ARM said...

Love the pics. Your kids are adorable - Fishy looks like he's a terror. :)

I take it the net is back up & running? :)

Billy is erect and the cat is now unfrozen. Life is good in the Tall Chick household.

ldbug said...

Nurff wars!! Fun!

I'll bet that other guy has more than just sore knees!

It's easy...

kids will be kids. And that goes for Munki too.

~d said...

I mother effin LOVE the nerf guns!
How cool is that?!

Candace said...

Kitkat - yes, I think if MuNKi hadn't rushed out to buy all those extras we'd be out already!

Winters - thank you. :) I will be sure to only use The Nutcracker on Terry. Actually, for a while there, there was a running joke about "Candy's cup kicks: better with icing" which was really quite unfair, I think, considering that I never scored a Match Ender like some people have. O_o

Arm - thanks! It's a wild crew. :) The net is still flaky but definitely better than previously!

Egan - I couldn't have put it better myself. ^_^

Snow - well one for sure has a nasty blue lump on his calf. :-P It was one of those freak-timing thing where we we're both trying to kick each other at the same time. Argh!

Joe - "Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be in time" - boy, I could have used that is sparring! ^_^

TG - so true! There's nothing like a full-on Nerf war to bring out your inner child. ^_^

~d - I now believe that no household is complete without them. And they're pretty reasonable at Walmart. ^_^

If I ever get invited to your house I am going to wear a cup.

Diesel said...

Your house looks like a fun place to be.

Candace said...

Mr. Fab - Even though I would never INTENTIONALLY kick you in the bajollies, that is probably a sound policy. ^_^

Diesel - I'm certainly enjoying it! ^_^
