More shots from The Strategy Room

These shots are also from Joe via The Activity Pit. I'm a lousy thief.

In the above shot I'm clearly making some kind of point. I fear it may have been the one involving my desire as a child to have pet pygmy marmosets because I saw a picture of them in the Guinness Book of World Records and how my parents suggested I write Joan Embery to see if this was feasible. It wasn't.

Here's the photo I mentioned.

And then here I am not making a point.

And then here's a Santa potato head.

Here we are laughing at something.

Here's Bill Schulz. Want to know what kind of friend he is? He's the kind of friend who, when I said at the beginning of the show that I'm a frequent guest on Red Eye, acted as if he'd never seen me before. Thank God he's a horrible actor.

And then something happened here.

And then somehow Charlie's Angels was mentioned and then Jill Dobson and Melanie Notkin made the above gestures and then Jill said "come on Alison!" and then, even though I pride myself on having never taken a photo wherein two gal pals and I are pretending to be Charlie's Angels, I lamely tried to mimic what they were doing so as to seem fun and sporty and easygoing. If the above photo could speak it would say "hey guys? is this what we're doing? guys? am I doing it right?" And then it would laugh nervously.

Here I am posing with a menorah, apparently. I didn't see this behind my head until I saw these photos. And what is my hair doing here? It can't decide if it's going behind my shoulder or in front. It figures that even my hair is indecisive. Also, I celebrate Christmas for those keeping track. I know it's confusing.

Strangely the pygmy on the left reminds me of myself...and yes, based on that gangsta photo, I'm quite sure you are NOT a member of the NRA.

That bottom pick is hot! You always look cute when you're laughing and look natural! No that is not a line...just keeping it real!

"And then something happened here."

I think I was just trying to get a pic of you and Jill. I don't remember. I was frantically switching between windows like a whirling devrish trying to be semi-productive while capturing some priceless and unforgettable Alison moments.

Or perhaps I was fascinated by the carrot in the glass. I find vegetables in glasses very interesting.

And in case readers are wondering, one of the guests gave cute little Mr. Potato Heads to everyone, and I thought they were cute. She also had clever names for them, which I also don't remember.

Since you celebrate Christmas Alison, will we be doing some sort of a secret Santa gift exchange here, or are all gifts to be sent to you? Also, are you registered somewhere? I'm absolutely horrible at picking out gifts.

Did you put up a tree? I bet the tree would totally make the couch work in that room.

Props to Joe!! To his credit he's the most shameless A Ro promoter over at AP.

I like the 3rd pic from the bottom the best in this series--I could write a lot of good captions for that one.

Good to know that you were pressured into doing that pose, and feel the same way about girls who do it. It IS indeed really lame.

"A post with a reference to Mr. Potato Head and the Guiness Book of world records..I thought I made an allusion to the aforementioned items in my other comments. I must be some sort of prophet or something...."
