Bringing Marriages, Families, and Friends Closer, One Note at a Time

or..."On the inside I'm wearing a bikini and have purple hair".
You know you secretly wish you were a rockstar, admit it! Well, if you indulge your family in a "RockBand" game, even fat ol' mom who spends more time sweeping Cheerio's off the floor than rockin' out these days can let her inner Hessian out and rule the (virtual) Music Scene. This is aided by such items as an "easy" setting, "No Fail" rounds, and the ability to spew gibberish into the microphone and still get a fair number of points. ( As illustrated by a certain 2 year old who sang "Are you Ready to Rock" through 3 minutes of "Nine in the Afternoon" and still scored somewhere between 65% and 70%).

Having trouble getting your children to obey? Now you have new leverage! Out of ideas for creative date nights? As it turns out, you can successfully whisper your way through 2.5 hours of rock'n'roll and not wake the babies. However, you should be warned, if you try this method, you must turn in your "cool" card prior to your first set.

(Are you unsure about your current "cool" status? Well, first things first, if you're using the word "Cool" you are almost certainly UNcool...add "whip" to the end, and you'll be a'ight. ie: this game is Cool-Whip)

Throwing a dinner party? Nothing breaks the ice like a rousing round of the Beastie Boys "Whatcha Want" failed at least three times, even on easy because even though you *think* you know that song, I promise you, you do not.

So, there, that's my obnoxious "look what we got for Christmas" post in which I attempt to show the world how superiorly blessed our family is with worldy gifts that help us completely forget that we are not Masters of the Universe and that we do indeed owe all we have; health, spirit, and the ability to care for ourselves and those in need to Christ our Savior.

It is my sincerest wish that each of you had a wonderful Christmas day full of love and the people that mean the most to you. ( And we hope you were able to throw some fun into the mix too!)

And with that we are "Back to Regularly Scheduled Programming"...or...I'll be back when I have something to write, its been a nice week away from the 'puter, but we're back to the grind now, which means, I'll be looking forward to my daily break from reality in the blogging world. I'm looking forward to reading New Years Posts soon!

I just don't get the appeal of Rock Band, to tell you the truth. It doesn't do it for me.

Have a great continued blogcation!
