The Thing yesterday went pretty well. I now have a Related Thing this Friday. Auuuugh! *fingers crossed*
In order to prepare for The Thing yesterday, Steph kindly agreed to webcam with me Sunday night to make sure Skype was working properly. Here's what happened.
+ We started late. As per normal.
+ After playing around with the audio settings for a while, we came to the grand conclusion that my dad's office headphones/microphone headset came across the clearest. When I told him this afterwards, he was like, "No, duh. They're about $200. I should HOPE they work well. O.o" So. Yeah. Thanks for letting me borrow those, Dad.
+ Although I looked like a telemarketer, so. Hmm. "On a scale of one to ten, how happy were you with your service?"
+ We invited Mickey to join in the webcam session. Because neither of us had seen the girl in ages and we missed her dimples.
+ Gathering the three of us together resulted in watching Zac Efron and One Direction music videos. Granted, the Zac Efron one was the "Let It Go"/Idina Menzel parody, but still. MEH-lo-drah-MAHTIC much?
+ Stephen and Tommy joined in after a bit.
+ Mickey then proceeded to open the Pandora's Box that is Google Effects. SO. HILARIOUSLY. AWFUL.
+ Let's just say that it's hard to take people seriously when they have a giant party hat, an eyepatch, and a twirl-tacular mustache hiding their face.
+ I signed off later than planned. As per normal.
Love these kids. They silly. I'll let you know if the Related Thing goes well!
