Yesterday saw my apartment invaded by the Keepers of the Candle (the all-about-me candle, that is). They devoured enough fondue for an army and generally kept me thoroughly entertained!
Notice Lydia who was having hair-clip issues, Rachelle who was apparently the victim of some kind of fondue-induced trance (the medical term for it is Acute Boyetic Romantia), and Linnea who seemed to be hoping an eligible male model might be seeing this picture. If that come-hither look doesn’t do the job, nothing will! And then the ladies tried to blend in with my Christmas angel collection (around the tree in background). What do you think? Did they come anywhere near succeeding?? My vote goes to Christine Cho.
(The Princess Bride)
The movie apparently wasn’t quite action-packed enough to capture the attention of the Korean contingent! While Daniel and Mary slept–cutely, I might add….
…Josh tried to escape dressed in my jacket and scarf. Doesn’t he make a cute little babushka??
But one of the highlights of the evening, without a doubt, was Mary punching a guy for the first time in her LIFE. She chose Collin as her victim (a young man who is always deserving of a little abuse) and I think she smiled more widely after landing a solid punch than I’ve ever seen! Her eyes actually disappeared into her face, with is the international symbol for very-very-happy-Korean. Congrats, Mary–if a career in writing doesn’t work out, you might have a brilliant future as a pugilist! (Note: Collin actually said that the punch was painful, so there’s no play-acting here!)
Bottom line? I’m WAY too fortunate to have such a fascinating small group and such an entertaining (and talented) class of…uhm…Platos, Aristotles, and Socrates! I love you all!!
