Chinese New Year at Brindle and Mark's, Part II

Continuing where we left off...
My inflatable Kristen was a bigger hit than any of the party games we tried to improvise with chop sticks and nostrils.

"Here, Noel Gallagher, have some vegetables."

Remember when Paul Reubins ended his career doing essentially the same thing?

Kristen's I Dream of Jeanie impression leaves a lot to be desired.  Or wished for, more appropriately.

The casual setting of this trial episode of American Idol made for a mellower Simon and a much drunker Paula.  Producers weren't sure which way the ratings would skew, so the concept was abandoned in favor of the familiar spartan backdrop we all know and love from YouTubes of contestant meltdowns.

With hat like this one, I can't help but think everything he says starts with, "I'll bet you that..." and ends with someone getting their stomach pumped.

That was the moment when I knew that Brandi knew that she and I would be perfect together if only I was a women's softball coach.

If anyone sees anything paranormal in this picture, you're probably smoking something stronger than anyone at this party was.

Speaking of smoke...

The only reason anyone without a camera was out here in the freezing cold was to make some, but what's the point of smoke without fire when it's freezing cold?


"Methinks you might make a good queen of Asgard if you'd go home with me."

I can has evil kitty plz?

Grapes.  She's offering grapes.  No cherries.  Lost hers a long time ago.

"What'd you say about her melons?  Those is fightin' words, bro!"

In Brindle and Mark's dining room.  That's where Carmen Sandiego is.  Duh.

By a unanimous decision of the panel of celebrity judges... Iron Chef wins again!

I'm just going to point out the look Brandi's giving me and leave it at that.

Had anyone at the party been on acid, they would have seen an H.G. Giger monster here and gone all...

...this.

"Is that one of Brindle's spring rolls in your pants or are you happy to see me?"
