Party Time



Well, the birthday party is over: at least I think it was a birthday party. If my relatives were not all present, I woulda sworn it was a riot in Bangladesh. It had all the elements of a full scale "international incident": there was screaming, crying, sudden loud noises, and breaking glass.

If you can't tell from the picture, Baby Trot was feeling a bit poorly, but enjoyed mashing cake all over himself all the same. If the rest of us had not been relatively healthy the last few months, I'd swear we were part of some Hazmat project gone array. As soon as the poor little fella gets over one thing, he picks up another. Boy is just like me instead: just plows ahead like a pack mule even though it's probably not the smart thing to do.

Toss in Rakes trying to outdo his little brother when it comes to scarfing down cake, as well as attacking the ice cream container with nothing more than a spoon and unbridled glee, and you get the makings of a Jackass movie gone horribly wrong.

Furniture Market + stressed to the gills + 17 people in my house + Trot's first birthday party + Rakes the Impaler = Ted twitching for the next 5 hours like some tweaker in search of his first hit of crank.

I need a nap. Or a drink. Or a lobotomy.

I'm just keeping my eyes on the prize: Curt Schilling, Kansas City, Monday at 4 p.m.

John said...

Somewhere, probably in a box in the attic of my UK house, I have a pic just like that of my son Ben, but in his case it was chocolate cake! Hope the 27 years doesn't fly by for you, Ted. Relish every moment of it.

Stacy said...

It was loud, but most of the mayhem can be attributed to three of the party guests (all under the age of 10) :) I think, just MAYBE, comparing our family to a riot in Bangledesh is stretching it JUST a little!

Great party, and Trot attacked that cake just like Aunt Stacy; icing first! :)

It was fun and I hope you are out of the fetal position and getting ready for market. We need you today; if only for your comedy value.

Bub, how was opening day? By the way, glad everyone is OK after the tornado scare. If you move back east, your biggest worry will be hurricanes, and they don't come as often. :)

Ted D said...

Tex, thanks for the laughs last night. After the riot, I mean party, I needed it!

John, you outa dig that out next time you get back to merry old England: and I'm sure it will fly by John: my daughter is 8 and it seems just like yesterday.

Stacy, you are to close to the situation to be objective about any of this!

Kaylee said...

//Kaylee, you called Texas dumb, and you called a Hockey game stupid...you are not getting on anyone's good side with comments like those! And as much as I like JR and Sakic, having seen Sid the Kid play, if you get a chance, GO!!! He's unreal.//

okay reall quick before i am off to work I have to comment on a few things directed toward me that while I was watching Joe sakic beat up the coyotes.

Hey Tree squirrel thats okay I never said I was trying to make friends here!

Tex did I read a comment that you grouded me from blogging????:)

Scott,I have to tell you something my friend i got two pucks signed by Joe Sakic actually one was supposed to be for my friend that is supposedly a Av's fan but,took the puck and then as we walk back to our seats says WHO the heck is JOE SAKIC I said"you dont know who joe sakic is but you are an Av's fan.Something is wrong about that I think.Okay done with my rant gotta go to work.

Matt said...

Awww Brotha, it wasn't that bad. I mean it's a birthday party that includes young kids...you know it's going to be thunderdome. Rakes the Impaler wasn't too wild, he was just feeding off his older party-mates. And poor Trotty may not look anything like you, but he's definitely got your sinuses. But hey, all Caroline got from me was her feet, so that's not so bad.

I will have to admit, I'm mentally preparing myself now for Caroline's first birthday. Amanda is going with a "ladybug" theme, and she's ordering 1,000 ladybugs to release. Whatever kid catches the most gets a prize. And I'll be catching them for a week afterwards, I'm sure.

Kaylee said...

Oh and scott,one other thing I almost got into a fight with a drunk fan he was taking shots at joe sakic so I said something rude to him and we got into it fortantely it was only words!

Kaylee said...

Jeez Squirrel now you want to catch lady bugs??????You are something else.I dont get men sometimes especially you and scott:)Okay i am really leaving now:)

Kaylee said...

I just realized its only 7:25 here dont have to be at work til 8 Thats the way I did It when I was little only the whole head went into the cake before ANY one could cut it:)

Ted D said...

Kaylee, I have GOT to ask because the possibilities are endless: what kind of job do you have?

I'm envisioning something along the lines of a telemarketer since you are quite the talker.

Kaylee said...

no,not yet I am working at a office right now!

Kaylee said...

I am an assistant to someone!at a printing company.

Kaylee said...

hey aint you working?

Kaylee said...

hey i am supposed to be working but we are very slow so far anyways,so you know how to moderate your comments?????or shall I be asking Tex?????

Ted D said...

Kaylee, do not get fired for being online your first day at work!

We're still at Furniture Market, but it's really slow around here.

Moderate comments? What in the world are you talking about?

Kaylee said...

Never mind I got someone I am annoyed with that posts on my blog!I wont get fired some of my co workers are online looking up basketball scores too they dont care as long as we do our job when necessary too:)

Kaylee said...

I am so bored here at work:)

Kaylee said...

Okay another comment on last night:

//Anyone ever seen a tree squirrel on the attack? They can be vicious.//

Okay TREE SQUIRREL ATTACKER,You are never coming near me.AND no I have never seen one and prefer not too.

Matt said...

Kaylee, your a smart girl...stay away from the Tree Squirrel!!!

Matt said...

Wow...see Tex: I'm a poet, too!

Kaylee said...

Okay I can comment I am on break:)thank you TREE SQUIRREL i feel special now............I am so glad I only have 3.5 more hours of this working stuff........I want to beat up one of my coworkers at the moment.

Kaylee said...

Um Tree squirrels are not anywhere close to POETS go find your acorns now buddy.

Matt said...

Kaylee, my advice would be NOT to beat up your co-worker. That tends to be frowned upon by employers.

Kaylee said...

Tree squirrel:I did not know squirrels can give advice:)I know but he is a fricken lazy bum I hate it so do alot of other employees!

Tex said...

um matt...i dont think that constitutes being a poet...a rhymer maybe

Matt said...

Oh c'mon Tex! Some of the greatest poetry ever is nothing more than rhyming couplets! You're just an elitist! You don't have any time for the common poet!

Kaylee said...

WAIT Ted OR Tree Squirrel IS THAT A BASEBALL CAKE in the picture? IF is you are training that boy right already:)

TEX,from here on out i will keep my texas comments to myself wouldnt want to have you hurt me:-)
BUT THAT DOES NOT GO FOR MR BECKETT!

okay I have to actually go back to working now:)

Matt said...

Examples of "rhyming" that can also be classified as "poetry":

Roses are red, violets are blue
I hate the market, and Teddy does too!

Matt said...

Kaylee, that is a baseball cake. Trotty had a small one, and the rest of us had a big one to share. And Trot went yard on his.

Kaylee said...

i can see he went yard on his.he likes cake apparently.

Kaylee said...

okay ill be back around 7(EST) after i finish working.

Matt said...

Scotty sells real plants,
Teddy sells fakes
To water or not water,
Which would you take?

Kaylee said...

You are bad at being a poet go back to being the Tree Squirrel!

Matt said...

Ah, see Tex...Kaylee thinks I'm a poet...a bad one, but still a poet.

Kaylee said...

Ok well thanks for all your concern we are flooding out here now! Where the heck is Noah when I need him. Where to start, Kaylee did i give you my po box so you could mail my puck? I will draw a picture in trade! Oh and I would go back to highschool instead of working.

Ted D said...

Listen flower power, I CALLED YOU today to check on you! I don't have Tex's personal phone number, so I have to let her know my concerns here.

You must have closed the tree stand up early.

Kaylee said...

Kaylee said...

scott:AND I thank the lord that I am not living in TORNADO country!I just want the rain here,I will trade you the puck for that haha!

Ted D said...

OK Scott: commence the rain dance.

Kaylee, it's your FIRST DAY. How do you know these people already?

Don't take this the wrong way, but I would not want to be 15 again for all the tea in China. Or furniture, I should say.

Ted D said...

Kaylee, it's a good idea to read the posts before commenting: you are too much.
