Holiday Hangover

Not from drinking too much, although we did our share on Christmas Eve with those basil martinis. They were fantastic, by the way. I can't believe how smooth and easy of a drink it was. I wonder how it would taste with an infusion of cilantro instead. Gonna try that next time, but maybe it would be more of a summer drink.

Anywho, we plan on spending most of the rest of the weekend sleeping it off in shifts. Too much food, just enough family, not enough booze.  All of that adds up to a couple of tired polecats.  Haven't even played with our Christmas gifts yet.  Not really, anyway.

I have dabbled with the new Flip Video UltraHD camcorder that Gia gave me.  Seems real easy to use so we, of course, used it to make a "baby drinking a beer" video.  OK, so we lack imagination.  Like I said...we are dog-tired!

PS - Hmm...takes a while to upload a video to Blogger.  Gotta be a better way.

PPS - OK, Blogger's video embedder sucks. Let's give Vimeo a try, shall we?


Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. No babies were intoxicated in the making of this video.

Both my kids got a Flip video last year from relatives and neither use it. I've been meaning to use it. Is it really super easy?

Zibbs - even an idiot like me can rock it.

Sybil - That will be tomorrow for us. All day. Pajamas!

Savannah - That's my cousin's second child. Adorable is right!

Duder - I could go for a white russian right about now.

Brittany - Heya! An hour an a half nap sounds great! Think I'll take two of those tomorrow. ;)

Is that you in the background? Is that Gia saying, "it's empty?" hee hee hee

Very cute video ;)

lemme know what the fastest way to upload a video is and if there is an easier format.

ok good!

Yay drunk!

Verdant Earl said...

Holly - No, that is my cousin's husband in the background holding Emily. But the voices you hear are Gia and I. And I'll let you know what the easiest/fastest way to upload videos after a bit more experimenting. Vimeo wasn't ideal either.

It's good to know that I'm just like that baby when I'm drinking.

Hope your holiday was great.
