weekend at sal's*

First weekend of the World Cup, and Sal and I got out the matching pajamas to watch Sweden play Trinidad and Tobago. I spent three weeks in the hospital from a scorching case of the Tobago when I was a kid, so we rooted for T&T even though the Swedes were heavy favorites. Here you can see us watching the game while working on our laptops, with Sal occasionally strumming a rousing folk song to cheer the underdogs on:

In case you can't tell, ours are not just matching pajamas, but matching robot pajamas--and matching menacing killer-eye-laser robot pajamas at that.

Meanwhile, at halftime, we took a break to check our horoscopes and look for skincare advice:

The friend who took these photos also tried taking one from behind the sofa as we watched the game, but her efforts were foiled by my bald spot messing up the lighting for the photo, even after I tried wearing the stuffed giraffe on my head to cover it.

* I will admit to worrying when I titled a post Weekend at Sal's that Sal-fans would worry that Sal had died and forced Andrew McCarthy and me to engage in no end of hijinks to try to cover it up.

Very cute. I like how you're holding that giraffe like it's an Oscar.

a better picture with the giraffe is the one in which he tried to cover his bald spot with it.

I never knew that grown men have pajama parties too. You should give each other makeovers. Or at least paint your toenails red or something.

If somebody tries to hand me one more damn World Cup schedule as I walk down the street, I think I'm going to kill them. Seriously. I think the entire city of Stockholm has one by now. They're everywhere.

Why is everyone always telling me I need a makeover? (Wait, I don't want an answer to that one.)

The awesome robot pajamas were purchased at Target. I don't know where the giraffe came from, but I adore it more than I would an Oscar.

hmm, in that case I won't tell you that Drake (http://www.flickr.com/photos/warxal/62017243/in/set-1339771/) also adores that giraffe. ;-)

I'm glad you chose no footies on the PJ's, but I wonder if I am the only one who noticed the argyle socks?

There is nothing more comfortable than a good pair of pajamas. I practically live in my pajamas when I am home.
