while you were out

I'll leave the recapping of ChocolatePalooza to one of the other Blogging Beauties. This post would be way too long if I tried to sum up the entire evening o' fun, so I'll skip to my part.

I have no idea how many people were at the Penthouse- there must have been over 20- but as it got later our numbers dwindled. A bunch of us followed Em into Rhonda's room to see this hilarious site called Brick Testament that has bible stories illustrated with Lego people. Obviously there are really funny ones about the Law and husbands and wives, so it's Lego porn if there is such a thing. But it's just following scripture- I had no idea some of that stuff was in Leviticus!

So we were all standing at Rhonda's computer, and after having a good laugh, several of us crashed where we were on the floor and the bed and sat around talking. The numbers dwindled and after a while the small contingency that was left (names are omitted to protect the guilty- fess up at your own risk) got a brilliant idea. After looking around at the way Rhonda Lu's room was laid out with her new bed we observed how cramped the room seemed, and how much better it would look if the bed were over there... or over there. Ideas began pouring out and we started to get excited.

"Why don't we just do it?" someone asked.

So we did- and it was seriously like our own version of TLC's While You Were Out! A few of us tackled the closet- others took over the art work rearrangement- we all moved the bed together- and mind you this was all taking place sometime after 11pm, so we were all giddy from chocolate and exhaustion. I felt like I was taking part in a reality show in my friend's apartment, and was waiting for the camera crew to bust in any second. Well, the camera crew never arrived, but I did have my digital camera to capture the hecticness of it all. I think it took us about 15 minutes or so to finish our little Labor of Love.

So Surprise, Rhoda! I hope you like your new room. And I hope you're not mad. But nothing's un-doable- we didn't go so far as to re-paint the walls. Although if it hadn't of been so late we just might have ;o)

pictures to follow soon, so the guilty won't stay protected for long- I'm giving you a head start to make like a tree, and get outta here...

Shoot...I'll fess up. It's my place, so it's obvious I was there. I'm not ashamed, though. I want to take some of the credit for how good it looks now! :)

I'd call it a "full circle moment" when you find yourself saying "Gee, this is just like a reality TV show!" Kind of like when you're in Hawaii, and you say, "Gee, this looks just like a postcard!"

Hell has officially frozen over....Lisa actually made a comment!!!

Rhonda Lu said...

You are all under arrest for drunk and disorderly conduct. I can't believe you guys did that. I spent a lot of time deciding how I wanted to set up my room when I got my new bed, and put forth a lot of effort to rearrange everything after I bought it and ya'll go and screw it up and not even ask me or give me a warning??? I have to find out through the freaking BLOG????

I'm just messing, you know I can't be mad at you guys :) Too bad I called Amanda before I wrote this....I could've really had ya'll feeling bad about it!

Oh. My. Gosh. I thought---why is amanda posting on Emily's blog??? I thought, did Emily copy Amanda's post and put it on her blog?

Not sure if I like the new look...do you miss the splatter of pink???

"WHAT HA-PPEN'D??"" (**quote that movie Amanda...**) But seriously, What happened?? I click on for my daily reading of the DivaDomain and wham!! it's gone... or so I thought! I seriously thought someone stole the DIVA Domain for a second and it had vanished right before our eyes...

It will be alot to get used to ...it'so...so... professional. I feel that this is not the "mom-n-pop" type blog that was once so inviting to the jo-schmo reader. Now it's moved on up... (not to the East side)You gotta be high class to hang out at the DIVA Domain.

Amanda, I also think you should be ashamed of yourself for doing that to Rhonda's room. I once had that done to me, except that it was three boys who broke into my appartment through my window and trashed my room to where it looked like a hotel room in Beruit. I was quite freaked out. They even buttered my toliet seat!! The nerve...
