tonight's NERT class was all about search and rescue. we learned how to identify how heavily damaged a building might be, whether or not it was searched, and how to get people out of the building if it's unsafe. one of these techniques is the blank technique. essentially, you get the blanket under them, and then lift them out to safety. but what if you can't lift them? well then you just drag.
and while losing the house husband is a bit sad, not feeling guilty when we go out for sushi dinner (which we did tonight nom nom!) is sort of worth it.
a few months ago my pal scottel and i started a dueling photo blog based on vocabulary words. the concept is simple, we take the vocab words of the day, and we take pictures of them. this week is a bit challenging in that the words are actually names. this is an outtake of what i'm posting tomorrow. if you want to know the word, you'll just have to check it out in the morning.
ps. if you missed it, the improv video i tried to upload yesterday, fear not, the technical glitch was corrected and you can now watch and mock all you want.
this is probably a bad idea, but it seems like genius right now. genius.
you see, this evening i headed over to anneh's house for our usual top model mockery, but this time instead of doing a photo shoot, anneh had the brilliant idea of making a movie instead. thus we ended up condensing tonight's episode into a 2minute piece of art.
ps. there are SPOILERZ.
pps. for the record, we had it ready on time, it just took forever to upload.
this evening randall and i went to the secret sherry society's event at swig. free sherry drinks and snacks, and lots of ol' timey aesthetics. everyone was invited to put their secrets on slips of paper and then throw the secrets into an urn. a couple of graphic designers then took the slips and made postcards out of them. all of this for some sherry. i'm not even totally sure if it was a general enthusiasts event, or a marketing event disguised as one. i mean i'm sure it was a marketing thing, but it was more fun and hip that i'm willing to pretend it wasn't.
As Chris demonstrated, the mario hat arrived a few days too late for Halloween hijinx. I didn't even know it was on its way. Randal is a super nerd (as is Chris) and so stuff like this just shows up at our door. i don't mind though, it's a fun and gives me an excuse for a hair mustache, and that is always awesome. so happy nerd friday folks!
