*Happy Presidents’ Day!

Saturday night my roommate and I hosted a Presidents’ Day party.  Everyone was supposed to come dressed as a president and we made teams for pub-style presidential trivia.

Here’s the trivia movie; see how much you know! (I’ll post the answers later).

I made the movie in iMovie, finally putting my VisCom skills to use. Sadly, the DVD I tried to make so we could play it in our DVD player didn’t work… Next time!

Here are some pictures from the party:

Theodore Roosevelt: “Speak softly and carry a big stick.”

Theodore Roosevelt & Grover Cleveland

Trivia winners: Team Air Force One. *If you look in the left corner, you can kind of see FDR. Sadly, I didn’t get a picture of ‘him’ and ‘his’ wheelchair.

“Barack Clinton” (Pravin was representing both).

Some of the guys (too cool to dress up)

Grover Cleveland & Theodore Roosevelt

*The Great Debate

As I sit here writing this, a debate is occuring in my kitchen.  The cause of the debate: Jiedson.  The debaters: Andrea* and Steven.  The subject of the debate: Who should clean up the poop that Jied left in the U-Haul!

Okay, to be fair to Jied (and so he doesn’t kill me upon reading this… although he probably won’t read it anyway)  it’s not actually his poop.  Steven and Jied were helping Andrea move her things into her new studio apartment.  While moving, Jied unfortunately stepped in a pile of doggie doo and tracked it in to the U-Haul.  How Jied managed to get out of cleaning the truck himself, I don’t know, but I’m going to have to ask him for his technique.

I also don’t know exactly how or why Steven and Andrea’s debate ended up in our kitchen, as Jessica and I were innocently eating lunch when Andrea and Steven pulled up in our driveway in the sullied U-Haul.

Andrea asserted that she wouldn’t mind cleaning it herself, if it hadn’t been so ‘soft!’

Steven didn’t want to clean it either, and you can’t really blame him, as he neither stepped in the poop and was only around the incident because he had agreed to help Andrea move.

So, who ended up actually cleaning the mess?

Andrea?  Steven?

Perhaps Jied himself?

No!  Hiro!

Just as Steven and Andrea stepped outside to clean the poop, who should arrive but Jied and Hiro!

When Hiro saw what was happening, he said to Steven and Andrea, “This is just so easy, why are you guys struggling to pick it up?” and then he quickly and completely cleaned the truck.

Once again, Hiro saved the day!

*Andrea’s  name was changed per her request.  All other names were kept the same.
