New icon!

Mehndi X made me this kyoot icon for rambling osts about movies. Very nice :) Could have been a little goth-er, but at 100X100 the picture's about as detailed as I could hope for.

Intensely crowded weekend--our "Lady and the Tramp" post-valentine's party turned out bigger than I'd imagined it would, with about 20 people in attendance! Wow! It was hard to keep track of everyone and I didn't get to talk to some people very much, but it was quite a party, and everyone seemed well-fed at the end.

There's a local named "Sparrow" who always turns out at the Wing Night, our weekly gathering. He's hosted so many movie nights, and been such a good host, that I'm particularly tickled when he shows up at something we've put together.

I think we might have stumbled across the perfect formula for a movie night--just one movie, with a 20-minute intermission for dinner. This worked so well, everybody was all extra-chatty and social during the brief intermission. Usually I feel like the movie's a waste of time for some people (we know a lot of folks that just don't do films, that unless I *know* people are coming for a double-movie night, someone's left out.) With this, tho, the non-movie people seemed content, the movie people enjoyed themselves, and the social time felt stronger, somehow, because it was defined by the movie space.

We set up a little guest room Friday in our spare room--I think I'm going to try to decorate it as if "obsessive Griffyndor student slept here." Not specifically Harry Potter-themed (though there'll be a bit of that), but specifically, "student's bedroom."

Thank you to everyone who came and made Saturday close to perfect :)

Thanks for hosting! I'm not a *huge* movie person, so the chat space in the other room was appreciated. Hope it didn't come off as anti-social.

Not a bit, movies aren't for everyone, they're just an easy way to theme an event.

That's true. That and maybe costumes... I'm still waiting for another 70s event so I can wear my awful bellbottoms again. Sadly, I think most furs today just learn of the 70s in history...

Haha, I know I've said it enough times, but it deserves it, it really was an epic evening, especially for me. (Nothing like beating a dead horse with a "you're awesome" stick eh?) I'm not used to gatherings of that magnitude so it's not a common thing for me.

Can't wait to hang out with youse guyses again. XD

You know, I can totally picture you beating a dead horse with a stick.

Heh. We were a little surprised by the size of the event, too :) The house didn't seem crowded, though, so it's all good! See you soonish, sir :)
