Unfortunately, the lighting in the venue (a dinky little bar with stuffed animals and old record players and other oldschool paraphernalia) was rubbish and since I just had my little old point and shoot, I could barely take any good photos. It made me very sad, but one of the girls at the party is a keen photographer and I'm hoping she got at least one photo of me among her many other snaps.
|I accidentally set some wrapping paper on fire and then dropped it in some wax, so one of the other guests (whom I had just met) had to fish it out using straws for chopsticks. Unfortunately, the straws did not survive :(|

I hid in the bathroom to take some photos of myself, so people wouldn't ask questions about why I was doing it. I'm not usually shy about telling people I blog, but I was quite shy over the weekend, probably under the pressure of wanting to make a good impression on my bestie's friends but feeling I'm too weird to possibly do so.Whatever the reason for my hiding, I really enjoyed the chance to get away from the small-talk and try to pose awkwardly in the bathroom! (And awkward it was. When I was trying to get a photo of my shoes, I cut my head out of the picture - and couldn't even get my feet!)
|The camera is perched precariously on some kind of fabric candle on top of the toilet here. I'm half posing, half poised to spring forward in case the camera falls!|
|Voila! Second nose ring.|
