The Hawaii Chair

So we have a bit of a Friday Funny thing going at work, where someone normally sends a funny link or two out in the afternoon for everyone's enjoyment. Todays led to a couple of follow up links, the last (so far) being to this fantastic infomercial. I somehow thought that this thing could never really exist, but then in the related videos section, I saw Ellen had managed to get her hands on one to try out - prepare to be entertained...

End of the night takedowns

When I was a little younger, I used to always hate to leave a party early, just in case I missed anything. I'm old enough to need my sleep now, so it doesn't bother me so much anymore, but I still wonder what I might have missed out on.

If you're the same, and you were at Heidi's birthday party last weekend, I was lucky enough to film the second last event (the sucking all the helium out of the balloons moment didn't come out so good in the pitch darkness of a rainy night), so you no longer have to feel like you missed out.

Apologies in advance for the drunken slurring of words - to be honest I had no recollection of this incident until I reviewed the camera the next day. And watch with amazement as the talent of Ms Klassen shines through......

That was some weekend

IMG_3975

So we managed to pack a few things in this weekend. Saturday morning we headed up just north of Loveland to a hot rod/custom car show.

IMG_4000

We had planned on just an hour or two, but there were fields and fields of pretty amazing cars, so we obviously blew way past the initial time we allocated (and we had to stand in line for about half an hour to get something for lunch). It was worth it though, as there were plenty of top notch cars there.

IMG_3989

Then after a quick blast back down I25, and a shower, we grabbed a couple of drinks and headed over to Neil and Lauren's Housewarming Party. It must be the summer for parents, as Neil's Mam and Dad are across as well, so I think that was the highest Geordie concentration in Denver for a while.

P1000318.JPG

There was definitely a lot of bouncy castle action (and some of it not even involving any kids).

P1000348.JPG

We actually managed to stay out until midnight, along with a few other likely suspects, and I think everyone had a blast. I know we did...

Private Browsing


If you've ever done any work travel, you know that the people sitting next to you on the plane or in the airport just can't help looking over at your screen to check out what you're working on. Now, if you really wanted, you could go for one of those techie and expensive 3M screen covers that mean you can only ever see your screen from directly straight ahead. Great, unless you're on vacation with the wife and trying to watch a movie or something, or showing colleagues a presentation.

As always, someone's come up with a low tech way to avoid this problem. It could be a life (well career at least) saver.

Google Street View UK - the real UK

So, big news today (or maybe yesterday) was the release of StreetView data for the UK. Of course, having all of those special cameras drive up and down high streets across the country mean that foreigners now get a real view of what actually happens on the streets of England. As can be seen from the photo, it normally involves a post-drinking binge puke in the middle of the pavement/sidewalk, something covered in very few brochures that I'm aware of. At least we were spared the pissing in the doorway on the way home (so far anyway).

Update - looks to me like Google is spoiling our fun, and took the image down. That's so not fair....

Update2 - however, you can just move a little further down the street and look back for the side view of the image 8-) Did I tell you I love technology?

Want one, want one, want one.

Little known fact/confession time. When I was younger, I was pretty addicted to the old yoyo. I could even do tricks (and yes Heidi, this was after I learned to complete the Rubik's Cube ;-) Come to think of it, I wasn't even that young when I finished - definitely late teens when I purchased my last one - maybe a trip to Toys R Us is in order (if those sort of places even still sell real toys these days).

Ice Blocking

Pure concentration

If you ever wondered what ice blocking was (and to be perfectly honest, it had never crossed my mind until the wife mentioned it a couple of weeks ago), it basically involves a steep hill, the biggest block of ice you can find, and plenty of laughs.

We all headed over to the local field around the corner from our house, and tried it out. As you can tell from the pics, there were lots of laughs and everyone escaped without any serious injuries (although my side hurt a little from all the laughing).

JB's Bachelor Party/Pub Crawl

P1040420.JPG

You don't realize how you miss a decent pub crawl until 50 of your closest friends all pile down Colfax for a bit of an event. This one happened to be to celebrate the impending wedding of JB/Tartley/Jon/insertanothernamehere. A great turnout was further compounded late in the evening for Dana's engagement gig, resulting in even more people taking over the bars and sending barstaff into a little frenzy.

Luckily for us, the Aussies left their whistles at home (although a certain wife of an Aussie has the capacity to use the natural whistle approach to round up the troops). The bars were the usual eclectic mix of places we wouldn't normally set foot it, and places we wouldn't normally leave until thrown out at closing time. The weather did it's usual Denver in Springtime thing - sunny most of the day, somehow turning into a decent snowfall for the periods we were expected to walk between bars.

Oh, and we had a Nun with us, and it turns out s/he was an expert cowbell player....

Trash Compactor

One house we rented in Breck when my (youngest) brother was across here had what is apparently known as a trash compactor. A machine mystical in its operation, that means you can keep stuffing the big bags full of rubbish long after it should be full.

We needed one over Christmas when we were back in England - lots of takeaways, gift wrapping and random boxes, combined with the bin men enforcing the one bin only rule per house meant we were struggling for space long before it was time for the wagon to come around. Enter the Newcastle version of the trash compactor - much more manual in its approach to solution, but a lot more fun.....

Best Umbrella?

I would argue (and quite hard) that the best umbrella you can get is the one attached to your 07 Rolls Royce, that magically comes out of the door when you press the little button. It's definitely got the best hiding place anyway. However, the most fun umbrella has to be this one - it'll probably not get you safely through security at DIA (or maybe even down any street over here), but it looks fun for a joke on the other side of the Atlantic.

And it even collects the rain and makes the water pistol work - how cool is that? Too cool for Rhianna, that's for sure.

The Rise of the Helmet

It seems like only yesterday when the big Vegas trip was planned for my stag/bachelor/bucks party, but it turns out it was well over 2 years ago now. Plenty of great memories, lots of friends, a blow up sheep, and the Captain America helmet, which I was somehow persuaded to wear all the way up the strip (and then even in a few bars and clubs if memory serves me right, although the whole night got a little vague towards the end).

Well, it's all going to be happening again this weekend - not mine of course - you only get one of those (or two I guess if you can squeeze in an extra one back in your home country ;-), but the incredible Mr Tonkin's. The usual suspects, plus a couple of early arrivers from Oz are heading there tomorrow, which is unfortunately a little too soon for me to be able to order this fantastic Pac-Man Helmet and have it arrive in time. I guess it's the thought that counts, right? And I'm sure Ash has something equally fitting sorted out, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Heidi's Birthday Party


P1030097.JPG
Originally uploaded by Aaron in Denver.
It was a good one (as always). I was relieved of my cooking duties this year, and we got the help of Maggianos to provide the food for the troops. Of course, we totally forgot the portion sizes when we ordered, so I think everyone went home with a big bag of food, and the fridge and freezer are now fully stocked for the foreseeable future.

Fynn made it through her first party, although I think by the end it all got too much for her. We also managed to successfully recreate the Purple Hooter experience, so that made me and Ash happy anyway.

The rest of the photos are up on Flickr here, although I did totally forget that I had put the camera on charge until later in the night.....

Aarons Saturday Night Plans

It's not going to be pretty - the last time I played golf was for Ash's stag do - I have vague memories of hiding in an alleyway at 9pm, throwing my guts up, and that was back in the days when I could still actually drink (I think the 3 under par at the par 3 Fado's at 4 in the afternoon was the cause - that and of course the obligatory dodgy pint I must have had). Happy Times.......

Neil/Lance/Tonks Chunderfest 2007

Bex and Matthew Visit Denver

So the last few weeks, we've had the pleasure of a visit from my brother Matthew, and his girlfriend Bex. They went home on Thursday night, so thought it was about time that I got around to uploading a few pics etc from the visit. Hopefully they had a blast - I know we definitely did.

We did manage to get them both to the top of Brecke, and they actually survived the whole way down...

Life Catchup

The last couple of weeks has been pretty hectic (hence the random posting days), so it's about time to catch up. First off, the wife got a new job - this meant a couple of things - we had a whirlwind trip to Boston to visit some friends, and then she's spent the last week in Vegas at a big internal company conference (and I mean big as in they hired Bill Clinton to be the speaker one night!).

I managed to fit in a usual trip to Atlanta, and then this week was my first ever visit to San Antonio. Apart from getting used to the warmth again, there was plenty of entertaining clients and sampling of the local culture (as in margs and burritos apparently - I was expecting cowboys and steak, but shows how much I know).

Anyway, we're both back now, and preparing for a night out with the man of many names, JB/Hartley/Tartley/John and the ever entertaining Susan. Fado's of course is the designated spot, so a little gentle persuasion of the wife was needed. No doubt the hangover will be big tomorrow, but it should be a great night, and definitely what you need to prepare yourself for a weekend of painting and laying floor.

As usual, photo's aren't uploaded yet, but as soon as they are, you can check out flickr and I'll try and remember to link them back up here.

Thanks to Tonks for the link, although not sure what he's doing checking stuff like this out.

All the fun starts a minute or so in - and glad to see the bridesmaids being so supportive ("if you laugh one more time, I won't be your friend anymore")

Enspiria Christmas Party

The Girls

It was another classic party - lots of fun, great company and a drink or two. Hopefully nothing got broke in the house, which was decked out with more decorations and Christmas trees (9 to be exact) than any house I have ever been too.

George made a break for the door late on (but luckily Tonks persuaded him a walk home wasn't the best idea), Dave initiated shots of the dangerous fire water that turns up every year, and some people even got to wear their Christmas sweaters. Me, I resorted to taking the opportunity to wear a tie for the first time in a couple of years. It even stayed on all night, and I didn't get choked by anyone, so has to be considered a success.

Photos are here, but the camera didn't come out until late. I'll try and get some links once the other photos are uploaded somewhere (Neil, Kathy, Tonks......)
