I’m Thankful for Friends, Rock Band, and Sabotage…

100_1908OMG! Mary scored 100% on vocals on Sabotage! We played Rock Band at her house for something different this Thanksgiving. It was definitely a little different, but everyone seemed to have fun! Mike was a natural with a lot of showmanship. Kathy did pretty well on guitar, and even better on drums. Michelle was easily the best vocalist, but David brought the most energy to the performance. Left to right is David, Kathy, Mary and Mike – with Glenda cheering the band on from the couch.

Mary aka Wonder Woman shows off100%! Wow... who knew she had it in her?

Mary, Phoebe and I went to Vegas the week after Thanksgiving – Phoebe and I tried to encourage Mary to look into a new career as a rapper. She’s resisting.

Am I the only one who thinks this is funny?

Flush_ButtonOn prior trips to Europe, I had seen an engineering innovation in which toilets had two flush buttons, one for “liquid waste” and one for “solid waste”. I’ve started to see these toilets in the US now too. It seems like a perfectly reasonable way to conserve water. But here in the Arcotel in Vienna, the clean, modern engineering has a humorous element. It took me a little while to figure out, but once I did, I can only chuckle at the engineer who had fun coming up with this flush button.
