Party! - shadows of echoes of memories of songs — LiveJournal

It's *ages* since we've hosted a party, so we're having one on the evening of

Saturday 30th October

which I think means we get an extra hour. Daylight saving confuses me. There will be cake. Bring bottles, badgers, partners, whatever.

Please dress.

I add:

Daylight saving confuses me too. But I can do cake!

I suppose theoretically it's a Hallowe'en party, but, like, a day early, and we don't really celebrate Hallowe'en, so, um. There's no dress code, but some people are sad old goffs like me will probably dress up. :-)

Time is party o'clock. Give us a shout if you're planning to come early: it's fine, but you will be roped into tidying/baking/etc.

Crashspace is probably available; again, let us know.

sion_a prefers me not to post our address on LJ, so if you don't know our address, or you need directions, email me.

Please dress.


Come to think of it, you've not even seen my silks, which I got in the first year I was here. [ Red phoenixes and dragons on black silk trousers and a top with those little knot-and-tie things instead of buttons, and a black-on-black long kimono with a scarlet lining and huge billowy sleeves fit for stashing all kinds of goodies in. Usually worn with my dragon hairclasp and my mostly-haematite elisem necklace, Charm School. ]

It seems the fairer option: to the best of my knowledge none of the attendees will be offended or upset by people being clothed, while some might be offended and/or upset by people being unclothed.

Actually, I'm not too keen on the idea of people wandering around naked at my parties, but that may just be because I'm choosy about whose unclothed bodies I'd want to see.

The silks sound utterly gorgeous, though!

mmm, I fear I'm promised to Northampton that night, or something. It strikes the fear into me as a date, anyway.

You're just scared of all the badgers. :)

Would love to, but I'm in Leicester that weekend, and doubtless we'll be having a bit of a do there. Have a gothtastic badgerific time.
j4 From: j4 Date: October 19th, 2004 10:46 am (UTC) (Link)
At this rate it's going to be just me and the badgers! I'll have to dress them all up as goths. :)

Oh man! Just a few hours ago some of my Oxford pals announced a party, on exactly the same evening, with exactly the same theme (or lack thereof), and I said I might go! Hmm, can I tell myself that this party of yours should take precedence due to its superior badger quotient?
rysmiel From: rysmiel Date: October 19th, 2004 08:27 am (UTC) (Link)
Send those other friends of yours a nice little note pleading off due to a subsequent engagement ?

Sadly I shall be in Whitby - have fun!
j4 From: j4 Date: October 19th, 2004 08:53 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh, argh, I'd forgotten about Whitby! Obviously I'm not a sad enough old goff...

It's a shame you can't come; but also I now wonder how many other people will be similarly pre-booked, & whether it was actually a Bad Idea to try to have a party on Whitby weekend. Urgh. Damn.

As it happens, we're already booked into a party in Telford that weekend. Ah well.

I'm going to be in Oxfnord during the day, so I'm not quite sure when I'll be back - if not too disastrously late, I'll try and turn up...
j4 From: j4 Date: October 19th, 2004 08:53 am (UTC) (Link)
I should imagine Party will still be happening even "disastrously late". :)

Since everybody else is stating where else they'll be, I'd just like to say I'll be in Montpellier. On expenses.

I'm not at all sorry :-)
j4 From: j4 Date: October 19th, 2004 10:50 am (UTC) (Link)
<grin> Okay, you're excused. Even I would have to admit that being paid to go to Montpelier beats cake and badgers into the proverbial cocked hat! You will be missed, though.

Tony's mother is visiting that weekend. Could we bring her?
j4 From: j4 Date: October 19th, 2004 09:55 am (UTC) (Link)
Sure! :)

Soory, already promised to go to one party and been ordered to attend another, so I'm not going to be free.

How unfashionable would it be for me to buck the trend and be in Cambridge that night?
j4 From: j4 Date: October 19th, 2004 04:36 pm (UTC) (Link)

My head is spinning

Desperately! Your in-crowd cred would never recover. ... On the other hand, perhaps it's not so much unfashionable as very, very indie: it's all a question of spin.

I can trundle up from Nodnol for the day, or possibly the weekend.

I like the sound of this. I see no reason the vapouriser and I can't make it! :)
j4 From: j4 Date: October 20th, 2004 02:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hmmm. House is normally non-smoking, but then the vaporiser isn't really smoking, is it... I'll see what sion_a says. :)

Glad you can make it anyway with or without accessories!

Would love to come along but am not quite sure whether I'm welcome?
j4 From: j4 Date: November 1st, 2004 06:47 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm sorry I saw this too late to reply usefully. But for future reference I wouldn't've advertised the party in a public post if there'd been people in my readership who knew my address but weren't welcome...
