Easter Egg Workshop
Saturday 7 April 2007

On the day before Easter we got together with the intention of dying a bunch of Easter eggs. What started out as a simple egg dying shindig evolved into over twelve hours of eggs, movie watching, and game playing.

Attendees: Charles Meyer, Dan Norton, Josh Gulch, Felicity Powers, Scott Cook, James Malcolm, and Laura Mayfield.


We're a real focused bunch We started out as we always do, milling around aimlessly for a while until finally heading downstairs.

It's a sort of garage business James reportedly has been looking to start a harem. Scott and Charles are his first two employees.

A proud moment, indeed This is Charles and that is his Hitler egg.

That's about it, really Dan decorates an egg.

What more can I say?

Laid by the Kwanzaa Turkey Scott confused his holidays and made a Jack-o-lantern egg.

That's no moon etc. etc. The Death Egg is looking for your rebel bases.

Seriously, priorities Egg colorin' didn't last long. Not when there's Back to the Future on the telly.

Its tedium made you wish for a blizzard to strike There was a board game made about the Blizzard of '78.

You start out on the yellow pre-blizzard side of the board.

Why do we even have this game Eventually you flip the board to the blue, "blizzard" side, having to relocate all the pieces to the same squares.

It is not an entertaining game.

Maybe this has happened before? Dan seems relatively collected for having Charles' bum just behind his head.

Rudy Guilliani endorsed So apparently we have 9/11: The Board Game?

I don't know, either.

It's fun to decide who lives and who dies We then moved on to the Titanic board game, from JoshFest '06.

It is he, Dan Quixote Dan and Don: a match made in heaven.

Too bad the ship wasn't windmill powered Don Quixote tries his best to escape the sinking Titanic.

See, he wasn't crazy after all What ho, a giant! To arms, Sancho!

Our own humility was handed to us today So basically all of us would have died had we really been on a sinking ship.

Make your own jokes I kind of don't quite know what to make of this picture but I'm glad I have it.

I don't think he ever put it on the stairs, not once Charles never could get the hang of a slinky.

She stopped letting people use her phone after this We watched Snakes on a Plane and Felicity got her new cell phone wallpaper.

'This will be on the Internet, won't it,' she thinks The reality sinks in.

Though we did not smile while doing so Lest the day's mission be forgot, we did continue to color eggs on and off through the evening.

Easter eggs are no laughing matter The Death Star egg, the Hitler egg, and the Stalin egg will ensure that the trains run on time.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
At least I think that's the order but maybe you should ask Charles instead Charles produced the three stages of zombification: freshly dead, decaying dead, living dead.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
He was wiping away the tears each time he dropped an egg into a color In truth, dying eggs is probably the saddest thing Scott has ever had to do.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
It didn't come with a book Charles is still working on that slinky. Hasn't got it yet.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Charles has a caring touch Charles nurses Don so very gently, in ways that Dan never did.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
I know it's hard to remember this sometimes Josh occasionally has to remind the Internet viewer that they are looking at photos of people doing things in the past.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
But she cares little for Flemish painters, which is odd A little known fact about Felicity is that she is a connoisseur of Dutch artwork.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
This is where it's at A lively discussion about Rembrandt's Portrait of Baartjen Maartens.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
None of that Lord of the Rings or new Risk junk A game of old-school Risk rounded off the evening.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
World domination is a weekend hobby, after all I don't remember who won but they'll probably all take credit for it.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Great work everybody, now get out Felicity is either gasping or yawning. After twelve hours of exciting eggs, a myriad of movies, and a gaggle of games, who could blame her for either?
