wizards

i posted some pictures from new york this weekend. my favourite pictures are the ones of Rob and me goofing off in the wizard robe:





there's a pretty funny story behind the wizard robe. there was a yard sale at a house around the block from Rob's place. we went there on Saturday when we were meandering about town trying to find lunch. the yard sale was run by three middle-aged women from the neighbourhood who had decided that Rob and i were the cutest couple they had ever seen. ^.^ at the sale, they had lots of fun, random stuff there that we poked through. i ended up getting a copy of Backyard Baseball...i want to see if i can run it over WINE, because i remember how funny it was when The Good Dr. C found a copy of that game in his cereal box, and the kids up to bat would say weird things like, "BRING ON THE MEAT!" when they came up to bat. Rob got some records and an awesome old typewriter.

Sunday we had some time to meander about after brunch before i had to go to the airport...so we went back to that yard sale. the ladies who ran it were very glad to see us again, and went right back to fawning about how adorable we were. Rob got some more old records, and i made off with a copy of guess who. [i hadn't played that game in YEARS, so it's awesome to have it now!] we were on the way out, and Rob noticed that purple robe hanging from the fence. we went over to look at it, and then started to walk away. suddenly, one of the women who was running the yard sale ran up to us, took that robe off the hanger, and handed it to us. so...fun wizard robe!
