Despite of the mess with the car, we had a great time out Saturday night. The Witches Ball was a really good time, though I was a bit dissapointed in the vendors and overall theme...but it was their first one so I'm sure they'll get better. Nearly everyone was in costume, mostly themed to the event itself, so there were LOTS of witches. Others were pixies, fairies, wizards, one Cinderella, one flying monkey, a hilarious girl scout zombie, 2 vampires (including Lisa), and I was the lone cowboy till around 8pm. We stayed through the main ceremony, feast, and most of the live band. We wanted to stay for the drumming circle, but decided we better head to Mike's for his annual party.
We got there to find the entire house decorated, not a single room was missed. The yard of course was a cemetary, the living room was a mortuary, the kitchen was a mad butcher shop, and the basement, his masterpiece, was area 51. I can see why it took him so long to get this together, he did an amazing job. Armed guards (Mike and Aaron) escorted us into the alien filled area complete with the sounds of machines, computers, moans, and other various noises. Warning lights flashed, alien eyes flashed, sirens blared, experiments and preserved alien piecy-parts bubbled in jars, broken pipes spewed steam, scientists (Wendy and her friends) warned us of escaped aliens (see picture) and chemical spills ....awesome!
We ended up staying there till almost 2am before we headed home, with only 4 of us still there and awake. Lisa, myself, Tanya, and Kris (mikes g/f) pretty much talked from 11 till we left. Gotta love a nearly 3 hour conversation on religion and the myths of Halloween....Sadly the party ended long before, but we all still had a good time.
Now back to reality and this whole "work" thing.......*sigh*
