The Girls + Eddie Izzard= Tie Grr and Jazz Chicken

"Rawr, rawr, driving school."

This was one of the most fun weekends I've had in a long time. The girls descended on NYC this weekend for an Eddie Izzard performance. Fantastic. Eddie was sublime as always. He spoke about everything that's ever happened. Really. He covered the creation of language; religion; the dinosaurs; Noah's Ark ("Two tigers, badgers, two geese, two Bees, two cows. How many we got son? Just the tigers Dad.") The Romans; the Spartans; The Ancient Egyptians (they were all very old); God; Jesus, besus (was covered in bees), kesus, desus, zesus, tesus (always mucking around), cesus (was a roman emperor); fog; Wikipedia; Raptors; a Squid ("Seem to be running out ink"); Tie grr; Sharks ("We found a child"); and a Jazz chicken. Latin ("Elephantus?... Quod the F*ck?!")Oh yes and EZ(Zed) Pass. There's quite a bit more like the Ten Commandments, "Thy shall not covet thy neighbor's ox," but I'd be here for hours.

But yes, other than the laughs thanks to Mr. Izzard, hanging out with the girls was fun as always. Cheese and crackers were had. We watched the Family Guy, Vizma finally got to watch "Shawn of The Dead," and got to experience both the subway system and the terrifying thrill ride that are the NYC taxis.
