We had a party last weekend; it was a great success. A high-point: I laid out a bunch of tea candles in the shapes of various constellations, and told the guests that there was an awesome prize for anyone who could guess the significance of their layouts. A guy (who turns out to be a CMU computer science grad) was like "...is that Orion?" I was very happy. I gave him a tomato.
There were, of course, more typical party-things that made it a good time. I set up my iphone with itunes's dj feature; that was a big hit. As was the fondue and guacamole, all my art stuff, and the chainmaile bikini's. Someone actually put one on, though over her clothes.
