drinks, fun, and poetry

my friends birgit, babs and andi came over last night for food (baked potatoes with two different fillings), sepp's legendary mulled wine (the first of the season, and yummy as usual), some more drinks after that (of course), and games. about ten minutes after everyone was here, i thought i'd die laughing. for a while, simply everything was funny. like andi saying "see-HUND!" (ie seal) in a funny voice. (oh it was a funny voice, andi, stop arguing with me ...)

so yes, we had a good time. i got some nice presents too - *hugs* to b&a, and birgit! we stuffed ourselves on healthy food like chocolate, and crisps, and more chocolate while playing "nobody is perfect" (i won! oh and how i won! *L*), "zoff im zoo", and "outburst!" birgit left at midnight, but babs and andi (who live close by) didn't start saying goodnight until 2 a.m, and they left nearly half an hour later.

here are some pics:

andi, creator of the weisswedelhirsch (don't ask for a translation)

ever seen me think that hard before?

is babs trying to find her nose? or beckoning like some witch?

one of us is either having more fun, or has had more to drink

the collaboration, as you can see, is progressing. i am loving it. the character is taking shape in my head, a little more every day. and i am just happy that alex asked me to do this with him. his feedback has been more than lovely, too. :)

song of the day: the dirt is your lover now by thea gilmore.
