Girls' Game Night - How one elderly woman spent New Year's Eve
The Rogue Speaks:
I left Rod in front of the t.v. with a steaming bowl of something that I created from the last of the standing rib roast we had for Christmas dinner, some onions, peas, carrots, some wild rice, a little sherry, and the last of the gravy. When I clean a cooked roast, there's nothing left but very clean bones, so I hope he didn't mind a little gristle in that stuff. I kissed him good bye and headed for my BFA's house (Best Friend Artist) for Girls' Game Night. Di's sister, Devon, has a friend in Phoenix who always comes down to join us for these grand affairs.
When I arrived, the table was already laid in great holiday fashion:
Yes, that is Frida Kalo by the curio case, and she's a chair, but we don't sit on her out of respect for her divine talent.
First, we had a little pre-game game that Diane created. It was loads of fun, but I can't tell you what it is because you might try to steal the idea and make a bunch of money on it. Let me just say that there was a LOT of off-key singing, and some pants-wetting laughter. A die that we're sure was loaded was involved as well.
Di's sister, Devon, either laughing or singing, or BOTH!
Linda, giving us a task/clue.
Di, thinking and singing at the same time. She's really clever that way!!
Time for one more drink before dinner. Diane ADORES bacon, so in case you can't read that label, it's BACON FLAVORED vodka! BLECH! and BLECH again! Not for me, sister!!!
I was too busy eating fondue to take any photos during dinner. That game made me soooo hungry!! After dinner, we went outside to light a paper lantern and watch it fly up into the night sky, but that's a post for another day!
Be sure to head on over to Jenny's blog, and read the other assignments for Alphabe-Thursday. This post took me so long to compose that I am ready for a NAP!
