The finishing touches...

I always get nervous before a big party. Will everything turn out all right? Will the guests have a good time? Usually if you mix good food, lots of booze and interesting people, you have a memorable evening, but I’ve got butterflies in my stomach nevertheless.

To calm myself a little, I did some recon in the hall, just to make sure everything is going smoothly. The place looks wonderful. I have to give the Terraformers credit, they did a magnificent job combining all of Lynda’s ideas. I caught one of them putting the finishing touches on the subterranean section of the hall,


But it looks like everything else is ready to go.

The tables are gorgeous, all centered around the enormous buffet tables. Everything’s done in gold.



And the food is all almost ready. It looks like we’ve catered to every imaginable taste – you know with all the royalty on the guest list, the menu had to be just perfect.


Look at the ice sculpture. Isn’t it magnificent?



The orchestra is just finishing setting up. They say they can play music from any one of a dozen different planets. I hope whatever they play, we can dance to it because there’s plenty of space.



Whew, with everything under control, I feel a bit calmer now. I think I’ll snag some champagne to keep me hydrated while I get ready, then I’ll go prepare for the big meet and greet. Yikes, this should be nervewracking. I’m looking over the guest list and I’m a bit overwhelmed.

How does one address an Heir to the Noble House of Hades, anyway? What should I say to the Most Powerful Wizard Ever Born? At least we’ll have Ambassador I'sadhe on hand to help smooth things over. On second thought I might need two glasses of champagne. Good thing there's plenty of it on hand.


Well, I guess I'll see everyone at the party. Here's to a happy anniversay, Star-Crossed Romance!

Wow! Double wow! The tables look great! And the ice sculpture is just fantastic!

I've got my hair done and my manicure. I'm dressed and ready to party :D

Don't worry about how to address all the aristocracy. I'll bet they put their pants on one (maybe two) legs at a time just like everyone else :D

Now. Where's that champagne? I know I had one. Mmm.

That dragon ice sculpture is breath taking! And the dance floor is huge! I can't wait to shake my groove train to the Electric Slide (giggle).

Now if my hover-limo driver would hury up...

I can't wait and my halo-glow dress is going to look so wicked under those lights.

I'll be arriving with my enterogue. (Is that even spelled right? - I'm so excited, I can't tell).

Well, better run my handsome alien-sweep-me-off-my-feet escort is here to pick me up. Oh, isn't that lovely, he's brought a corsage that's native of his planet. (God, I hope it's not carnivorous!)

After two flutes of champagne, I'm feeling much better. LOL. Someone just stop me if I start asking any of the hunky male guests just how they do put their pants on.

Make a request for the Electric Slide, no party is complete without it!

Eww...let's do the cha-cha song! *Everybody clap your hands. Jump once to the left, jump once to the right. Now cha-cha, cha-cha. Criss-cross, criss-cross. How low can you go?*

That'll get everyone's blood pumping. Though I second Kat's concern that we might be among carnivorous attendees.

But that's what they make Stunspray for :0)

I'm hugging the wall, meself. I'm sure later on I'll be all out there dancing up a storm, but for now, I'm keeping an eye out for my precocious princess. She seems to be in a mood tonight.
