Three Rocks Stars, A Birdchick, A Director, Some Bird Banders, Maddy and Me...
Such a fine couple days! This was the scene when I got into work, earlier than I was ready for today. It looked like a birder Garage Sale, with the Banders, and Birdchick already up and going.
I know there are a lot of questions about last night, with Jonathon, Paul, Storm, Birdchick and Bill.
Yes, whiskey was drunk, Maddy, Birdchick and I were not however, a part of that. Yes, a podcast was done from the Sauna, but no, the Bourbon was not IN the Sauna, they had moved on to water by that point.
Yes, my Twitter account was hijacked briefly, while I was in watching Twilight with Maddy, who was feeling poorly, but NOT by Jonathon, Paul, Storm and Bill, as I thought at first. They didn't stop it mind you, (who could stop the Birdchick?) but it wasn't them.
And yes, the Birdchick did leave her computer still logged into Tweetdeck, and yes, Maddy and I got her back good, while she was busy hobnobbing in the Sauna.
Yes, Storm attempted Grilled Cheese at 10:00pm, having missed my Mexican Food earlier, but I have NO idea how he managed to not only spill my leftover hot chocolate all over himself, the walls, and carpet, but break the cup into a million pieces.
And in conclusion I would have to say that tho whiskey was drunk, at no point did anyone act drunk, get out of control, toss a TV set or otherwise create chaos. Some Rock Stars they were.
I would, and hope to, have them back at any time, as I am pretty sure I haven't laughed that much in ages. A fine time was had by all. I love those guys. Wish the Boss had been there. (see what he is missing being in China?)
You can hear the Podcast HERE.
And oh, there was much trampolining done, and then a visit to the Bees, with Woodsman Hans along (all pre-whiskey) We had to give them all new feeder buckets, and who would bother with Bee Suits for such a small thing?
Heh. No one got stung, but we had some Bee Moments. A little, perhaps, bold on our parts.
One of the coolest things about having the Banders out is that they will happily talk some Birds and share the experience for as long as you will hang with them. They also let me hold and release a bird, in this case a Lady Goldfinch.
I got the holding thing down, but where the Banders, and Jonathon, released their Birds, and watched them fly indignantly away, my Bird simply stayed put in my hand. They said it was because I was nice and warm, but I think we had bonded, and she was my New Friend, and she Did Not want to leave me.
I explained what would happen tho, if she came home with me to the Spooky House, and we agreed it might be better if she flew on off. One of the Banders gave her a nudge, and she did fly on off, but we have agreed to Tweet from time to time (oh, I slay myself)
A very fine weekend. I am sure Merry Housekeeper will no doubt faint when she comes into work tomorrow, for all I tried to keep things picked up, (Sorry Merry! Does Hot Chocolate come out of carpets? And yes, I think I did use every pan in the house)
I am really looking forward to the Concert at the Guthrie tomorrow night. If they bring half the hilarity to the stage that they did to our house, it will be well worth the trip. If you are in town and have not yet got tickets, go, you, now and get them! If they come to your town, go and see them.
If you are very lucky, they will come to your house too.
Love and Fun,
