Justin got an invite to a warehouse type of party, and I tagged along. I stopped over at his place around 9:15, and we chatted a while. Before we left, we did a tea cup worth of whiskey to keep warm, then headed out.
Here we are, WAY too early and only a few others milling around. Quick shot of an angel, adn one of the performance areas (to the left). I think people had to climb up there to play/sing.
There was also a projector in the top room, looping several interesting and disturbing animations/stop motion films. The whole party was heaven/hell themed, with the downstairs serving sangria (hell) and the upstairs serving… uh, I had beer out of a keg. But it was really good beer.
I stopped to get a photo of two people playing chess, prior to the festivites getting under way. I said we were early, didn’t I?
I’m sorry – but I gotta say this. Girls that play chess are just fucking hot.
This I think is…. Jeff? We talked a long while about music, and about singing.
At this point, I was pretty close to being done for the night. I had plans to drive to Ohio tomorrow, and wanted an early evening. I wandered around alot, and tried to get people to sign my petition. For the most part, I got a lot of signatures. Unfortunately I forgot to take photographs.
It’s been a while since I’ve been out and about, so I’m out of practice. The party was really nice – a fantastic, great loft (and they did a tremendous job decorating). There was even a labyrinth in back! Like I said – apologies, but few pics from the night as I ended up milling around.
I did, however, have a whole bunch of "Hello My Name Is" stickers on my person. This morning I ended up scrawling the blog address on them, and gave them out at the party. No idea of anyone’s checked back, but hey… any chance to hustle the blog.
At the very end of the night, I got to meet Liz, a friend of Justin’s that I’ve been hearing about for a long time. I didn’t get much of a chance to speak with her, and feel bad – but I was fading pretty fast at that point. Down the stairs (quite the miracle that I didn’t fall and beak my neck, as these were some monster stairs) and into a cab.
Unfortunately, I forgot my list of souls in the cab. All in all, I’d say I got about 50 signatures, minimum.
I wish I could have been around when whoever it was discovered that sneaky petition, in the back of a cab.
