I Got the Cup!!! (20 Nov 2005 at 17:40)
I Got the Cup!!!
Here are some pictures, both from my new flash experiments and from the punch and pie party.

For reasons unknown, much of this party revolved around a game where you stand on one leg and try to pick up a bag with your mouth. Because I start closer to the ground and am pretty flexible, this was totally easy for me, so I upgraded to the cup game, where I do the same thing with a Dixie cup. This was just barely out of my reach for several tries throughout the evening, but I eventually got it!! See above. I think this picture is so hilarious (particularly the genuine excitement of the guy in red); big ups to Marcus for capturing it. Sorry it didn't make the Post-Gazette.

Tomorrow afternoon Mike and I head back to CT to visit the dad and the rest of the family and to eat the thanksgiving.

What an excellent picture!

I have to say, the bag and cup games were surprising to me -- a pleasing surprise. Hilarious! You dominated the cup game. Strong work, man, strong work. But now we all know party games for cheap -- just get out the paper bag and let 'er rip!

That is not the kind of flash experiments I was expecting!

I am still not tired of Red Shirt Guy's facial expression.

I like how if you look closely at your eye in the blown-up version, it is like a real-life version of the trademark anime "squinting with happiness" thing.

J: I know, it's the gift that keeps on giving!

C: The only downside is that you might need to also supply liquor in order for these party games to have appeal. Wait, one more downside: a lot of people put their lips and teeth on the party favor.

I think 50 cent plays the cup game in his new movie.

On days when I'm sad, I look at this picture to remind me of the joys of the simple pleasures in life -- like picking up a cup with only your mouth.

also, happy pi day!
