Photos: redqueenofevil's bon voyage party!

Choice pictures from karaksindru's and my token appearance at the D'Evelyn Dash and redqueenofevil's bon voyage party, both on 23 August, are up here [link dead - ping me if you're really curious, I have them on a backup drive], but I know most of you just want to see the best of the party pictures, so they're behind the cut tag.

I didn't take a picture of mountain_hiker dancing on the patio table, but I can assure those of you that weren't there that it was more entertaining than it sounds.


RQE breaking the pinata open
The much-anticipated pinata seemed oddly innocent until redqueenofevil suggested it be hit like it was John Ashcroft. Needless to say, it came down fast. I think she's wearing a towel on her head in the photo because the blindfold wasn't enough for her to not see.

It's mystery candy!
(mountain_hiker said he was going to blog this, but I didn't see it in his post so I hope I'm not jumping his claim.) Three of the more mysterious flavors of candy from the pinata were purple taffy and two Indian candies we had to taste to guess at. The spheroid with a bowtie in its crotch (middle) was guessed to be peach, and the turd with legs (right) was guessed to be peanut. I'm still not sure what the taffy flavor was.

The nice group picture
This lovely group picture was taken by John, idemandjustice's husband. Back row: karaksindru, mountain_hiker, and idemandjustice; front row: redqueenofevil, oddharmonic.

Neat mirrored group picture
Inspired by an earlier conversation about mirrors and Bloody Mary, John also took a neat group picture of us reflected in the mirror. Left to right: redqueenofevil, oddharmonic, mountain_hiker, idemandjustice, karaksindru.


More pictures in mountain_hiker's post and a better writeup than my slightly muzzed brain can summon from karaksindru are available for the curious.

For the record, the taffy was purple flavored.

You know, the flavor that results when they try for grape? It always comes out purple ... in any even it's still better than the "peach" and "roasted peanut" that I think the strange indian candies were trying for...

Thank you. I couldn't remember what you said it tasted like and didn't want to call you at an odd hour just to ask.

I still think that peanut candy was really poop-flavored.

Tell Rob that he should get in touch with me before leaving for Colorado. I want to talk with him one last time.

The phone line there is still hooked up and he's not on a set sleeping schedule now, so you can call him anytime... but I just called and passed your message on to him, so he should call you sometime today.

Awww--what a happy group you guys look like.

And--so young!

*hobbles away with her cane*

We were mostly sober by the time the group photos were taken (I wasn't kidding about mountain_hiker dancing on a table!) but I'm glad we don't look too dangerous.

My great-grandmother always said you're only as old as you feel. In her late 80s, she told my mother she was 18 inside but her body couldn't keep up. The mental image of that has always made me smile.

I saw some of your Chicago pics, but I'm always up for more of one of my favorite LJ'ers and favorite superhero!

It is good that you're back in Denver and everything! You look great! Pinatas are cool, I used to have one every so often for birthdays, but usually it was in elementary school, because my grandparents would go to Mexico every year and get a Pinata. I seem to remember a blue burro seemed to be common.

Also: Just out of curiosity, where's Pueblo, CO? Like, in relation to where you are? No reason or anything, I'm just curious about the source of those pamphlets.

It's so good to be home I'm volunteering to run errands just to see everything again. (:

Even non-birthday parties get a pinata on Dad's side of the family, although parties with them are kind of weird.

Pueblo is a few hours south-southeast of here. It's east of Colorado Springs, which is 90 minutes - 2 hours away depending on how you drive. The last time I was down there was for the Colorado State Fair *mumble* years ago.

Ah, OK, I was just wondering, cause, like, I got this pamphlet about what the queers are doing to the soil, and y'know, I got to thinkin', and it was, like, makin' a lot of sense, y'know?

Anyway, that is keen to be home! Home-ness rules.
