fireworks and shrinky dinks

saturday night, leff and i attended a party at t and c's apt. in addition to having awesome food and impeccable taste, they also have an amazing view



and "monkeyball".



we were also able to see the fireworks over lake union from their place.



everyone else in town thinks that they were for a wedding reception but i know better. t planned it all! (hee hee!)

sunday was mainly devoted to the shrinking of dinks. ok, technically, it was about using sharpies on number six plastic as directed on this site, but who's counting.

here's a before shot.



and after.



i turned one of the deer pieces into a necklace.



and later in the day i made a hedgehog keychain.



aww! its name should be daisy!

so, in summation, other than the party, i had another uneventful weekend. i'm sure that you've come to expect that sort of thing.

dang, sorry I missed the bash! On another note, that wedding reception should be recorded as a notable landmark in the self-obsessed, self-indulgent excess that seems to be running rampant in Seattle these days.

i was wondering where you and nina were!

yeah, it is pretty self indulgent. but, honestly, i'm kinda sad that i didn't get a picture of the swam boats on lake union. not that i'm impressed with them, i just find them creepy. hee hee!
