We survived the party. We were early; they were late.
No snake yet. That Woman
is evidently modeling, for $50 a photo or something. She says it's scrubs she's modeling. We're suspecting that she's going to be wearing a smile, and perhaps some jewelry.
Jewel brought along a little friend, a little older than she is, and they were exclusive and ignored Little Fayoumis. I called him over and told him how it was, and then he played nicely with Jade and Krystal, playing peekaboo in the unoccupied booths in our area. (Buffet brunch. Large party. People gave us breathing room.)
Attendees: our family group (votania
, Little Fayoumis, azurelunatic
's parents (Grandma & Grandpa), That Woman
& co. (That Woman
, Jewel, Jade, Krystal, and Jewel's friend Dolly), Great-Grandma, Great-Aunt, and votania
It was quite the party. LF got a motorcycle, racecars, a lunchbag, and a Harry Potter shirt, along with birthday money that got him some cool dance lights (a disco ball with spotlight, a revolving red light, and one of those multicolor spinning ball lights). There were probably a few other things, but that's all I noticed.
Afterwards, we split off from the main party and hit Walmart. I got some fabric (10 yards of very cheap black nubby knit to practice pants on, 6 yards black netting, and 4 yards each burdundy-purple netting, navy blue netting, and black slinky stuff) and another cordless phone, since the main one keeps wandering off places. Little Fayoumis was antsy, after we'd helped him pick out his party lights. He wanted to get home to play with his racetrack.
We were going to hit Lee Lee's right after that, but marxdarx
was drooping in the heat, and we had to get him home. So we're here a bit to cool off, and then we girls will head back out...
