Shower Surprise

After the Holiday madness was over, the kids, Starchy and I had a few days of downtime. All we did was play with Christmas toys, watch football and movies and hang out. It was WONDERFUL.

One morning Starchy was having a shower and decided to have a little fun with The Dude. He called him in to the bathroom under the guise of asking him a question. Before The Dude could put up a fight, Starchy had pulled him in to the shower, clothes and all!

The Dude's initial reaction was that he was going to get in trouble. Then after thinking to himself "no, wait, it was my Dad that pulled me in to the shower!" he realized he was in the clear.

And boy did he have himself a good time.

Of course HP (being the nosy little thing she is) came to see what the fuss was all about and promptly climbed in the shower with her clothes on as well.

I would have to say that this was right up there with spaghetti bath as their favorite thing! :)

I'm writing this because you commented over on Xbox's site congratulating him and E for their baby.

I'm putting this on this post because it's a little bit down the page and I don't want him to see it :)

A while ago, before Martin's (xbox4nappyrash) wife got pregnant I promised I would post a youtube video of me singing "Yes" by Mcalomont & Butler whilst accompanying myself on the ukulele to celebrate the birth of their child.

This will not be a pretty sight as I can neither sing, nor really play the ukulele (this isn't false modesty - I really can't).

However what I thought might make it really cool would be instead of just a straight video I put together a montage of videos shot by readers of his blog and fellow walkers all celebrating - i.e. dancing, sticking thumbs up, cheering, holding up signs, that sort of thing. It would have to be something that would work without sound as I would put my (awful) soundtrack over the top of it.

It would be great if you could participate. If you send me a short 5-15 second video clip (or at a push a photo, but a video would be much better) along with your name and blog then I'll put it together with other submissions and get something ready for the end of the week. I think it would be a really nice thing to do for martin to show him and E how pleased we are for him. and Martin has been incredibly supportive of me and my various projects in the past.

However I realise this isn't the sort of thing a lot of people are comfortable with and so would understand completely if you don't want to do it.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. You can email me at
