Oh my goodness..Karaoke. Never done it before, or sung in public before, but it was soooo much fun! There were about 40 of us Stampin' Uppers at the Surf club last night (I don't think they knew what had hit them!) including Shelli and Stirling, Aaron (Aus manager) and his wife Karen, Dave Baugh (US head office) and his wife Jennifer and Emma (NZ manager)and her husband Sean. Aaron, Karen, Dave and Sean all had a turn on stage. It was an evening full of laughs.
Ness and I did 3 ABBA numbers. We looked and sounded just like them (not!!). Here we are doing our Waterloo moves:We did some high kicks to Sean's number (Ness, me, Tanya, Vicki and Jane - Ngaire's sister): And all the girls got up for a couple of numbers too:
There were some priceless moments...Aaron and the boy's Peter Garrett impersonation to "Bed's are Burning"; singing "Stampin' Queens" with all the girls, Dave's "Blame it on the Boogie"; Dave and Gareth's duo to "Summer of '69"(Jayne and I had to rescue them); Karen rescuing Aaron from the groper.....like I said, it was a fun night!!
and then I came back to our room at 11pm to find a pressie on my bed!
This morning I just had a light brekky in our room (still full from the Ricky's restaurant cooking adventure) and then headed downstairs to swap and stamp.
All the swaps I received are just amazing. I'll have them out to show you all at my classes over the next month. It sure is a talented bunch of people here.
I also spun the wheel today and won some 'Walk in the Park' papers. They have also set up a Candy bar, with pretty jars filled with different American candies....Reece's pieces, Peanut Butter Cups, Peanut Butter m&ms, and other weird flavoured things!
