Two Parties - Qualified Perceptions

Two Parties
Friday was Prom for Grownups at rifmeister's. I wore a dark blue bridesmaid-type dress that I had not previously had an excuse to wear, and the purple lace stole I finished last month, and was quite pleased with the effect. And rif said I looked beautiful! (Okay, still susceptible to compliments. :) ) As is often the case at parties, I did a lot of talking with people I already know, instead of Meeting New Friends, but it was still a lot of fun even if I wasn't making proper use of the urbanity mechanic. There was a digression into evaluating the physical attributes of various gentlemen, which was particularly entertaining (I belatedly realize that the adjective I wanted for collarbones was "sculpted").

Sunday was Our House Has No Heat Party at twinknj, which was a very different sort of fun. mjperson made goulash as an excuse to run the oven, and I brought over hot buttered rum ingredients, and we all huddled under blankets and watched Dexter and drank hot buttered rum. Apparently by the end of the party, it was four degrees warmer than at the beginning, so the party was deemed a Success! (Some people might consider having no heat a reason to visit *other* people's houses, but twinknj is eccentric.)

Apparently, if I become a serial killer, and reporters go around afterwards to interview my friends, they will *not* be told "She always seemed like such a nice person, I can't believe it!", as is traditional, but "Yeah, that doesn't surprise me as much as you'd think." Except for harrock, who is sweet enough to promise that he would be very surprised.

Current Mood: sleepy sleepy

Gosh, you're right! I never thought about that before.

Sigh, missed my opportunity to dress up in a froofy dress... :(

Well, you often have a New Year's Party, right? You could declare it fancy-dress!

(nods thoughtfully) Yeah, I can see that.

I'm sure that once you're making people promise to be surprised if you turn out to be a serial killer, you lose all cred for actually expecting people to be surprised. :-)

Well, yeah, at this point, when the police are interviewing everyone, they're totally going to ask "Er, and when she started talking about turning out to be a serial killer, why didn't anyone call the police?" :)

"Well, she'd been a Master Assassin for years and years, so mere serial killing didn't really seem noteworthy..."

Fear.

You know, I'd answer - but I'm a bit too busy laughing. Which might also be my response to the police, who knows. :)

prom pictures?

My camera batteries were unhappy at the time, so there's no traditional picture taken by parents before we left the house. But there's a couple of pictures from the photo booth at rif's, which he says he is Working On Getting Somewhere. :)
