thinking, as drunk they were.

Subject: yeah...

most of them, fortunately, were not attempting to move, though. 
except for a certain person with a camera. 
actually, two people with cameras. :-)

and then there was someone who apparently died. however, 
the body apparently removed itself after it's outline 
was taped to the carpet. mighty inconsiderate of it, i must 
say. i mean, what if the police had shown up?

"uh, yeah, this guy was just lying there dead, but he seems
to have left..."

I was not _attemoting_ to move, I was succeeding!

How are everyone's heads today? Mine's fine... :P

Subject: well

   to tie a few things together, I was successfully moving with my camera
over the apparently dead person on the carpet, recording the applying of
the masking tape to his outline by the same person who painted this poor
"dead" person's fingernails black.
   You know it was quite a party when you fill up the SC Recycling glass
and can bags with the bottles & cans that were left... :-)
   Gee, I have such mellow friends.  50-60 people there and the place
really didn't look that bad this morning.  All we lost was one glass... :-)

heard outside the party on friday, from some of
those "surf scum" who showed up:

"How's that party down there?"
"It's pretty good, lots of people, but... they're all so fuckin' wierd!"

   Youre right k*hl** and j*d* do make a cute couple.
   But what I want to know is, what does her lawyer think of this?

   Three cheers goes to m*ck**. Why? well we wont be hearing al*b*b*
   complaing about his lack of snuggle-bunnies. Sleep yes, bunnies no.

   FORD--> Found On Rug Dead.

   It seems that various beds and showers got a rather eclectic workout.

   Rumor has it that p*ng**n was seen driving away in a shiny blue porshe
   and hasnt been seen since.

kilroy was there.

Subject: Carnivore's new female fan

was acct spirit.  She shook his hand while saying "and you are?..." He said 
"acct Carnivore", and she pulled her and away and walked away looking at her
hand like it was leprous. We called after her saying "You better wash that off
in alcohol". Thus incouraged, she wandered back, sat by me, and said "Is he 
kidding? [about being carnivore?]" I said "no."  She said "He doesnt _look_
like a disgusting creep..."

A little later on, they were actually talking civilly to each other...

   mmm, we almost needed those fire engines... you shoulda seen
The Bear's eyes light up when she saw the can of Thrust Starter Fluid
on my shelf.  Heh heh.  Actually what she did with it was safe enough;
not likely to burn the patio.  But when certain other person got hold
of it and tried to burn off the excess lawn so he wouldn't have to mow
it... :-)

Second Armory February Birthday Party, 1990

Subject: a-party

     was a blast.  Who has my staplegun, eh?  Last I saw Ellen had it...
wonder what she did with it.
     I'll hafta get a mongo fan before the next party, though, so I can
set up an alternate ventilation system.  If we have music like that we
*can't* have *any* windows or doors open on the bottom floor (for those
who don't know, the police were called by "those neighbors").  My idea is
to open two windows upstairs, and use the fan to get air movin' around.
This, via the Bernouli effect or some such, will cool the downstairs too...
right?  :-)

Subject: party was great...

thank *gawd* i walked to it. i was not a happy camper when
i woke up this morning. more from staying up late and having
fun and drinking lots than from a hangover (which one does 
get from drinking too much, only my hangover seems to exist
soley of feeling tired, that i haven't had anything to eat
in a while, too little sleep, and i'm a bit thirsty. no major
headache or anything like that. at this point i just wanna go
back to sleep or get something to eat... (i had to get up 
far too earlier to go to work this morning...)

thanks for a great party john. i hope arthur gives you at
least 30 days notice to find a new place... :-)
