First off, my apologies to my blog. I've been neglecting you this past week. Liam has been home so I've been kept entertained.

Secondly, happy New Year everyone!! It's scary to think that at almost exactly this time three years ago I had a multi-hour drunken conversation with some bald guy and ended up with his phone number the next morning. He had this really cool friend named Cliff, but I never did get his number.

Tonight Liam and I acted like the boring old couple that we are and we celbrated the changing of the year over snacks and Monopoly. We did take in the fireworks in Sherwood Park at 8, but that was late enough for us to be out.

During tonight's game, I learned a number of things.

  1. Monopoly is still as fun as it was when I was a kid.
  2. Monopoly has a lot more rules than I was aware of when I was a kid.
  3. Lillian enjoys board games enough to sleep through them. (She slept through the fireworks too, so I'm kind of sensing a theme here)
  4. The offer of sexual favours can be very useful when bargaining for property and/or money. (During Monopoly only of course)
  5. Drinking Coke out of wine glasses makes pop-drinking seem sophisticated.
  6. Liam cuts broccoli into pieces to fit his bite size, not that of a normal human.

Someone should be getting some said...

I noticed you said "the OFFER of sexual favours." What about the PERFORMANCE? Liam needs loving! Nay, Liam deserves loving! He's a good man.

It was part of the bargaining process and the offer was turned down.

Monopoly is NOT a 'nice' game. It's an endeavour. It's cut-throat. It's kill or be killed. It's letting your own mother cling barely to financial life for your own sick amusement. God, I love that game.
