Set up a Grill & Kill

Even though I was dead to the world and sick as a dog last week. I had one bright shining thing to look forward to. A reason to get better, a reason to live!

Toonlet & CamiKaos & Dr. Normal were coming for dinner!

Well actually they were coming over for a Grill & Kill. That's when we grill up some food and then try to kill each other's bunnies by playing, Killer Bunnies.

If you haven't heard of Toonlet, they are the masterminds that let you create your own comic strips and publish them on your blog, web-site etc. Oh, and they also recently graced the cover of Oregon Business Magazine.

But not only did we get the toonlet boys, we also got Seth's wife, Missy (I like to call her Mrs. Toonlet) AND her Toonlet-in-utero!

After a tour of our house and about 15 minutes when I lost Dr. Normal, Seth and Craig in the garage because they were looking at Martin's oscilloscope and ham radio electronics, we got down to eating. I got to sit at the Toonlet table and was even more excited when I found out that all four of us were originally from the East Coast!

Then, it was time to get down to the killing. I'd say the best kill of the evening was when Craig wiped out Missy's four bunnies in one move.

(Clockwise: K, Martin, Missy, Seth, Craig, Cami Whats-her-face and Dr. Normal.)

We even had K help us out with the directions.

(Please note the doll in Martin's lap. It was there for most of the game.)

I'll admit that the game took longer than it should have, but everyone had fun and after some brownies and cupcakes it was time to call it a night. Especially since they all had to make the long drive back from Vancouver, WA to Portland, OR (it's about 15 minutes).

So, do me a favor and go make a cartoon on Toonlet and tell them that Missburrows sent you!

Also, if you live in the Portland, Oregon area, please come out to the Sundae in the Park to see Dr. Normal playing live! It should be a fantastic time!
