It's the inaugural post-Christmas Pyjama Day here in the Zombie household, which, if it proves to be a success, will be established as an institution. A while back, Phlegmfatale was waxing eloquent about her plans to spend the weekend sometime in pyjamas. That idea has since become firmly planted in my imagination, so I stole it!
We first established some ground rules: (1) showering was allowed, as long as one changed back into a pair of pyjamas or reasonable fascimile afterward, (2) workout clothes were permitted if one was to partake of exercise (also allowed) - oddly, nobody had to use that option, and (3) meal preparation not allowed. I did boil up the turkey carcass to make stock, but that doesn't count.
We started off the festivities by listening to Grant Lawrence from CBC Radio 3 describe being harassed by Ruhee's band, Henri Faberge and the Adorables, (the entire venue chanting "Grant Lawrence, take your shirt off!"). Still hard to believe that our sweet Ruhee would belong to such a band of ruffians, but I understand that she was not in fact present at this hazing. I am so relieved.
We still have about 40 hours of South Park episodes on dvd to get through, but we seem to be stuck on watching episode after episode of What Not To Wear. I'm just not used to watching this much tv, particularly during the day. I am overwhelmed by it all.
We're planning to listen to the Radio 3 podcast of the Bucky awards on NewYear's Eve while watching the crap countdown programs on mute. Okay, I'm really just blowing out me arse here, as I'm not even certain if there is a podcast of the Bucky's, but hey, it's Radio 3, they're cool like that, so there's bound to be. Some of the nominees include Islands, Great Aunt Ida, Joel Plaskett and the aforementioned Henri Faberge and the Adorables.
Bring me right back to Junior High dances, they do. Standing in the corner desperately hoping that someone asks me to dance that all-important last dance, but praying it won't be that guy.
Party on Garth.
