Witness to BASIP

This is so much fun. I'm on the PC at AP3's. Daughter Aral is on her lap top in here, making her BASIP. If you ever read her blog, you know that on Saturday she does a Bizarre Album Saturday In Pezland post.

It's so much fun watching this develop. She's pretty darn smart at putting all this together. In fact she says that it's so much work, that she ought to get paid for it. That Aral. What's bizarre is that she didn't even pick the album until a couple of minutes ago. She's half asleep, and she just does this stuff on the spur of the moment. I'm impressed.

'Course, if any of these albums was worth actually hearing, they wouldn't be considered bizarre. But she buys them for the bizarre cover pictures.

Aral's spouse Me Wonder Woman Pez and I are rockin' to the music, such as it is, my husband Niks is reading the newspaper out loud to us, and Aral is working away on her post. The cats are meowing for attention, the dog is excited at all the activity, and there's a young man over in the living room who apparently slept there last night. I knew that granddaughter Aved had company when I went to bed. All the activity is exciting to me too.

Niks and I get to stay in a Pezland room here. Aral has nine musical instruments in that room. She has albums with "interesting" covers framed on the walls, plus many other odd and interesting things.

She has a pretty good Elvis collection goin'. Has a lamp with Elvis and his hips swing back and forth continually. There's a life size bust of Elvis too. Of course the shelves are full of books on music and sheet music. She's a musical girl.

Oh! Hats! This girl has hats! A lot of hats! And more shoes than straight women have. But the shoes are in the closet, unlike Aral. The hats are hanging in collections. Maybe 50 or 70 hats?

Me Wonder Woman also has a room for her toys. (This is a big old house with plenty of room.) MWW's extra room is pretty and meditative. Aral's is like a college dorm room.

Young people are energizing. I'm having a great time.

So glad you are enjoying your visit. We are still at my in-laws and will make the trip home on Sunday.
Aral's blog work is impressive. She's quite a wiz!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Fair enough... but you neglected to mention that my hats are almost all ballcaps, and my shoes are almost all sneakers!

ap3, you're not one of those people with a vast collection of converse high-tops, are you?

AP3 said...

No, Manchego, only two pairs of those. :-) Lots of random, retro sneakers.

I've been wishing for my ol' purple high-top Converses - I may have to go out and find a new pair of those.

Sounds like y'all are having a great time. We got eye check ups and our eyes are all dilated. Goa'uld's dilated at different rates, looking pretty freaky. It's hard to look at the monitor, tho'

Sounds like big fun in Pezland. And a thick pall of niceness. Good for all of you for manufacturing more warmth than you can consume locally.

mireille said...

you sound pretty darn happy. good. And before we got to the ballcaps and sneakers, I had this vision of Aral in Philip Treacy (google him for a good time) and Manolo Blahniks. heh. xoxo

Sounds awesome, TLP! Have a great time with your family. :-)

I'm glad to hear that you are having fun in Pezland. Now about that cold weather in NC; I realize that everything is relative, TLP, but when you are not used to it - 30* is COLD (shiver, shiver)!

Loved the recording, sounds like you're having a blast! :)

Sar said...

What's that? Another impressive shoe collection?! Never mind they're sneakers, woohoo Aral!

So glad to hear you're all having so much fun. I'm having fun vicariously just reading about it. :)

What a delightful-sounding morning! I didn't get a lot of time to read blogs yesterday, and I missed a lot!

How'd I miss this post? A great description of Aral's; sounds like a fun time in Pezland.
