So Cute!

Today was the finals for this season of trivia. Christy, the woman who runs it, decided that it was going to have a theme of "Under the Sea". So, all of The Machine That Goes Ping! wore our (or Kris’s, in several cases) Hawaiian shirts, Irene put on a bra made of plastic scallop […]

Four Things and a Lizard!

That’s our Rock Band band name. It’s a Doctor Who reference. We’re geeks.
