Boo! It's HALF-O-WEEN!!! As I write this on 10/30/09, I'm preparing for the DSN Costume party tonight (link is
HERE!). I'm not sure how many might want to do this, but I think a half-year Halloween party would be pretty cool, and since April 30 is 6 months from now, and a Friday night, it makes a great excuse for a Half-o-ween party! Here's the premise: -Wear HALF
** of a costume or makeup
shock -The other half can be regular clothes, or nothing (depends on weather, hygiene and moral standards!!)
**HALF can be top/bottom, front/back, left/right, inner/outer, coloured/plain, plaid/striped, etc... try & make an effort- just for the fun of it! Like this:
...or maybe:
...or even:
(well, this one would actually be the full costume, being half-dressed!) We will have some games, music (maybe karaoke?!?) and some sort of prizes for best half-costume. Extra points for imaginative interpretations Points MAY be deducted for full costumes, though :>!
This will be a POTLUCK PARTY! Please bring something along - ideally, please update your comments with info on what you can/will bring** - i.e.: -vegetable snack platter -pasta salad -sandwich fixings -etc... **Consider the general population in any food preparation or purchase: Lots of people are allergic to peanuts, wheat/flour, milk products... If you are preparing something, PLEASE document the likely allergic ingredients (you can keep the recipe secret if you feel the need to!) so we can display them with the dish. There is a Sobey's on the same block as me; if anyone prefers to arrive, see what is MISSING/NEEDED, and then go out to purchase something, that would be great... but don't EVERYONE do it!
tongue I have limited the numbers to 25 - I can only SEAT about 20, so there will have to be some standing around! It's a 2-BR condo; not exactly a dance-party place, but I'll be practicing my DJ skills!
...don't everyone change to a NO!!!! I promise, good music! biggrin PARKING: There are just a couple of VISITOR spots in my condo's parking lot. ALL OTHER SPOTS ARE PRIVATELY OWNED BY TENANTS, but not marked as such. PLEASE PARK ON THE STREET!! More info to be added, as I think of it!!!

    Cool! OK, sure, I was the host and the organizer - but we had a lot of fun; it was a 'different' occasion, and definitely 'Something New', right?!?
    Thanks to all who came out, even the last-minute signups!!

    Thursday 3:30pm update: Too bad, Craig - I wanted to test that brew!! Others who are interested in coming, will be permitted some flexibility in their half-costume! That is, give it a whirl; or wear a 'full' costume if you have one - the SPIRIT of the night is the important thing! Email me for address details/questions; I'll be on my email several times before the party.

    I thought I had the Waiting List turned on... guess not - it's on now.
    Kaitlyn - I've added a +1 for you; the RSVPs can't be split amongst Yes/No/Maybe/Waiting.

    George - in answer to the food question, I'm NOT gonna say "half-raw, half-cooked"!
    I'll provide some burgers & the BBQ for anyone needing it - freshly BBQd meat is g-o-o-d... but vegetarians are welcome!!
