Paintball and Kyson
Let's see, what's new...?

Paintball on Saturday was ace. :) Joe and I took Mark, Katie, her boyfriend Dante and of course the lovely Hammond out to the range (yep, six people in a five-seater car; oops) and we met up with our other workmates there. Damo couldn't make it due to his workplace being bastards about scheduling, which is why the Ham-man stepped up to the plate.

The coveralls I was given were about a billion sizes too big, and I trumped around like the Staypuft Marshmallow Man with my crotch somewhere in the vicinity of my knees. Hammond put his coveralls on and looked like he was born to wear them... bastard! In a ladylike fashion, I sweated out so many litres of sweat during the course of the day that I didn't pee for twelve hours, despite guzzling drinks afterwards. But you guys didn't need to know that. Oops, too late. :D

Joe and I ran out of bullets halfway through the day and, feeling too cheap and overheated to buy more, we retired to the waiting area, chilling out with others in the same boat. Hammond appeared at the end of the game with a spectacular bruise on his arm ("It's in the shape of a smiley face!" he said proudly) and my workmate Liz's boyfriend revealed that, 1) he went to uni with me back in the day and I'd completely forgotten him (oops again), and 2) he'd assumed that Hammond and I were brother and sister. Apparently we look alike? Christ, we've been spending too much time together, we're going to turn into some sort of bipolar gestalt entity. Hammond will supply the inappropriate cheer, while I manage the violent bouts of PMS-fuelled doom.

Hammond and I are lower right, looking retarded as always. Go us! Joe was taking photos and subsequently is not in this one. Everyone else here is either a workmate or spouse thereof. Check out my sexy sweat. ;P

This one's for you, Adders!

After paintball we dropped everyone back at their respective homes-slash-locations and went to Joe's parents' place to pick up his other sister Lucy from the airport and chill out before the Sunday festivities, a big afternoon party thrown in honor of the fact that Joe's family was all present. It was very cool. There was a little girl there who had a crush on Joe and followed him around all day, hitting him and throwing things at him, as children do when they wish to express their undying love. I LOL'd mercilessly.

Now I'm going to scare off all the men reading... with BABY PHOTOS! My nephew, let me show you him.

Kyson asleep in all his squidgy glory.

Chris and Jess and co.

Three generations of Walker men. I'll bet Dad wants to be called Poppy.

Mum, who wants to be called Oma (the German name for 'grandmother') looking... well, pleased is an understatement. She's all "YES! I HAVE A GRANDCHILD! ALL MY PLANS HAVE COME TO FRUITION!!" All this selection of personalised grandparently names will come in useful for Kyson, who will have three granddads and three grandmas and will require a way to tell them all apart... HOLY SHIT I JUST NOTICED HIS HEAD, AAAHHH THE KID IS PART-XENOMORPH!

Apparently Kyson makes this face a lot. He was born on 'Talk Like A Pirate Day'. I hope his first word is "AAARRRR." Kid better get used to lots of pirate-themed parties and gifts because his mad auntie is taking this concept and running with it.

Gratz to Chris and Jess! Joe and I are going up to visit this coming weekend. :)

He's like a little monk, all bald on top with a stylish round-the-dome-fringe. :D

Hurrah for pirate baby! =D Congratulations to your brother.

I went paintballing on Wednesday as part of the celebrations of finally finishing school and achieved some mighty battle scars. It was my first time at skirmish so it was simultaneously terrifying but awesome.
It rained on the day we went so we had sweat, paint and mud up to the shins as a bonus. Clearly the sexiest thing ever. =P

You know Damo probably begged them to dick with his schedule just so he wouldn't have to wear khaki or do any sort of activity where he might have to be moderately fit.

Either that or he was worried that the Yowie Man might mistake him for Bigfoot and shoot him with a tranquliser gun.
