Do we know how to throw parties at BPYC or what?
It was L's turn to host the annual dock party and their theme was 'Movies': Bob and Milly greeted everyone with a bag of popcorn and we hopped from movie to movie, boat to boat.
Quite the buffet: Wendy and Raymond did Memoirs of a Geisha (Wendy made her own sushi, served sake, and greeted guests in a kimono); Dick and Maureen did Pirates of the Caribbean (hot wings and talking parrots); Sex in the City with Bob and Margaret (Cosmos, New York style pizza); Blue Hawaii with Stu and Jennifer (shots of rum); in Chicago with sexy Louise and dapper Paul (spicy sausage). So many more great movie themes (Sea Biscuit, Batman, GI Jane, Slumdog Millionaire), fabulous decorations, yummy food and lotsa fun.
We were watching old movies projected on a sheet hoisted into the rigging. Buster Keaton, Olivia De Havilland, Carmen Miranda, Fred Astaire...
Liz P. was my guest, and good thing! She ended up winning the Poker Run. Dinner and a movie for 2. We took first with three tens.
Before we knew it, it was 1:30 in the a.m. The party lights were reflecting off the still water. Those people on L were still raising a ruckus, but I had to turn in to be in quasi-shape for yoga at 9 a.m.
Rob and Alex were off in Montreal, enjoying their Christmas present from me... a weekend at the Grand Prix. Boy-bonding. I heard the weather wasn't great, but the race was fabulous.
Still, I know where I would rather have spent Saturday Night... at the movies...
