Getting to Know You: Fun and Amusement

We all had a great time at the luau this past weekend, but what other ways do you like to have fun? What kind of events and activities are your idea of a good time?

Do you seek out celebrations...









...and adventure?









Or do you prefer to stay closer to home, enjoying the comforts of a cozy evening in familiar surroundings?













Let's talk about how we like to have fun!

Anyone can answer, just, uh...keep it clean, okay?

Three guesses what Bo will say.

Marc said...

And the first two don't count.

Anonymous said...

Why, what would Bo say?

Aidan said...

We'll let Bo tell us himself. Except we have to keep it clean. Well, I'm sure Ricky will put the breaks on if he gets to crazy.

I like to snowboard and climb but I don't get to do much of that in SoCal. Too busy working. So now I swim in the ocean and shoot my bow.

Marc said...

I like to drive my boat.

Kaelin said...

I like to shoot.

Aidan said...

Uh uh, too close to work, Kae.

He's a pretty good skier, though.

Kaelin said...

I did find cage fighting to be strangely relaxing sometimes.

Jason said...

I like to hang out with Aidan. He always finds something to get into. And I like to surf.

Marc said...

I like to teach Aidan to surf. That's always good for a laugh.

I just want to move into that photo with the armchair, Mira!

Steph Damore said...

Hey Mira,
Just wanted to let you know I've awarded you the "You Don't Say? Super Comments Award"!!! Stop on by
my blog to pick it up!

Mira said...

Christine, you'll have to race me to it! I'll have to find out where Ann got that picture, it's wonderful.

Steph, you are such a sweetheart. I told you that on your blog. Thank you.

Hmm... for fun? Well, I could list a few dirty ideas (of which I'm certain Bo would approve)... but to keep it G-rated, it depends on where I am. When in Michigan for the summer, I enjoy lying in my hammock, sitting in the hot tub, picking wild berries, swimming in the lake, walking in the woods, and doing puzzles. When I'm in New Orleans, I like to dance and listen to live music on Bourbon Street. And when I'm in Los Angeles, I like to drink wine and attempt karaoke with my friends!

And I'll go to the movies anywhere!

Hi, everyone! I've never been here before... Olivia's little shenanigans on Friday alerted me to this friendly place. But I'm grateful to her for indirectly introducing me to you. Sometimes, it's nice to meet people beyond the walls of Ruby Hollow. I love my life here, but still, there is a whole world to explore!

Anyway, in answer to the question of the day, I enjoy swimming in the underground lake, playing the drums, and spending as much time with Devi as possible.

Mira said...

Hey Jesse! Wonderful to meet someone from Ruby Hollow. I'm looking forward to hearing all about it.

I like swimming, too. Very fun.

candy said...

Painting my water colors makes me happiest. Hiking is fun too.

Bo said...

I don't know why everyone's acting like I'm going to say something improper here. I like to watch movies. What's the problem?

Ricky said...

And I think they can all guess what kind of movies you like, Bo.

Nevin said...

I like to go to parks and museums. Botanical gardens are nice, too. And I enjoy composing new music. That makes me very happy.

Bo said...

Ricky, are you trying to say there are other kinds of movies besides the ones I like?

Ricky said...

Actually, yes. There are a lot of movies where people actually keep their clothes on.

Bo said...

Why would they want to do that? It would only make things more difficult. It's better to take the clothes off, but whatever turns folks on, I guess.

Gabby said...

Everything I have done with you guys has been fun. Especially the fireworks!

But swinging through the Mystical wood with the monkeys, wrestling with my panther friend and riding the Unicorn - these are the most fun of all!

Ginger said...

Personally, Bo, I find that if you keep some clothes on that it's a bit more intriguing. It allows for a little bit of mystery... and gives spark to the imagination.

Hey, Shadow, what's the most fun for you? Now don't be wishy washy, think carefully. We had fun at the rock festival didn't we? Of course you had a headache the next day and your Mum wasn't exactly thrilled when I brought you home..

Hi Candy

Yeah. I liked beer. That was fun.

What do you like?

Shadow

Candy said...

Hi Shadow, Hard apple cider's what I like to drink. Root beer floats are great on a really hot day too. But it really depends "where" I drink it and who with. Where's the most fun place you've drunken something you didn't usually like? I bet if we went to Ginger's we'd really love tea.
You stick to the soft stuff for now . I'm sure, at a party, if you drink pepsi it will taste just as good as something strong that'll make you feel rotten later.
Don't you let those guys lead you astray. Stick with Nevin.I strongly suspect that being strong will get you your shadow back.

Bo...? Come back... (Crickets churping) I gave you an award...mostly for your hot body, but hey what's a girl to do?

Ginger said...

For amusement, the men in my family like to watch football. This is a game in which a bunch of overweight guys run up and down a field chasing a chocolate egg. Every once in a while, they all jump into a pile so that we can see how their butts look in tight pants.

And sometimes they have turnovers.

Hi Candy,

Thanks. You're nice.

I wouldn't mind a few hours with Bo.

That would be fun.

Ginger said...

Anonymous, I'm not sure, but I believe that spending time with an incubus (*ahem*) involves the loss of a little bit of your soul.

Not worth it for a moment's pleasure, in my humble opinion.

No offense, Bo! You *are* a lovely being to look at!
