I threw myself a birthday party last night. I always like to do something interesting and special to celebrate and invite my friends to have fun. I've been recently obsessed with the "hbomb" part of my personality. I talked about my first nickname: heathervescent a couple posts ago. I have a secondary nickname as well: hbomb. So the theme of the party was the hbomb.
Andrew at Ground Control was nice enough to host. For the first time in my life, I didn't make all the food. Connie-Lynne made the cake and put together a fabulous spread of snacks. The best was the three tiered German Chocolate Cake on fire. No candles for us, flaming balls were spread all over the cake. Mike, the bartender, perfected the "h-bomb" a vodka based cocktail sporting a flaming lime. I handed out hbomb stickers and champagne pops. We had Aeon Flux on the wide screen and Karaoke on stage. My highlights included a mashup of Bela Lugosi's Dead sung to Donna Summer's I feel love. And then I had to my classic karaoke song: Thriller.
This has always been a hit, but last night's performance took the cake. The best thing about Thriller is that everyone joins in in the dancing. It's amazing how many people know the dance moves. So most of the room was up and dancing along, until the very end, where, if you remember in the video, the crowd of zombies gangs up on the date. Well, this is exactly what the zombie dancers did. I'm singing along, the zombies are dancing, and then the next thing I know, I'm surrounded and they're coming in close, until the very end where they have taken over the entire stage and we hear Vincent Price's cackling laugh. I wish we had some photos or video, because it was a moment to remember.
I was also sung happy birthday in Swedish. And everyone sang along too!
It was great. Everyone had a great time. I was able to spend time with old and new friends. And 2006 is already shaping up to be full of fabulous people and activities.
