Out of bed by eight (that's a.m. folks), dressed and ready by eight thirty, and out and running to the paintball field by eleven. For a group that is not known for their promptness, I'd say we did pretty damn good. We pretty much had a full group turnout at paintball zone as you can see in the picture. When the girls first saw the picture first thing out of Lana's mouth was, "Ya'll look so cute. Dressed up like that ya'll don't even look like computer geeks." Yeah, thanks babe.
We had a blast. It's been years since we've hit the paintball field plus for some of us it was a first. I had a rental gun but it was a Spyder XL Extra. The mask the guy handed me smelled like the last guy used it to wipe his ass so I borrowed Derek's extra mask. We walked away bruised, covered in mud, bloodied in some cases, and feeling really good. Something about running around shooting your friends I guess. There's even talk about making a paintball field out on Scott's property. I didn't get too bruised up other than a small one on my arm and few I can feel but not see. Anthony had two break skin when he turned the corner on the castle scenerio and got shoot at close range.
I learned my lesson from an eleven year old about requesting a surrender from someone. I rushed the kid from the rear. He never saw me coming. I felt bad about shooting someone at close range, nevermind he was just a kid, so I yelled surrender. What does he do? He turns around, pops me a few times, then throws his gun up squealing "I surrender!!" So I shot him back. I didn't even feel bad.
After we all got cleaned up, we ended up back at my place and played a some Texas Hold'em. I've never really been into poker but I think it's a good thing. I've realized that poker is a game I could very easily become addicted to. Micah ended up winning the first pot. I was pretty tired by the time the game was over so I crashed. Everyone else though, trooped on to the next game where Kelly won the pot. Lana went out and bought some chips so we could "practice" for next poker night. I have a feeling this could get dangerous with the both of us on the same addiction at the same time. We played some last night with Micah and Kelly. If they didn't come by Lana wanted to watch Rounders again.
I should probably get back to doing laundry. I'm behind, as usual, and we leave for Florida tomorrow! Passion Parties Convention is in Florida this year so we're taking Marcel with us this time. I'm going to miss all of the convention this year but I won't be bored. There's so much to do there! Well, off to pack!
