Ralph sets up some tunes:
About half the guests left after eating and just a few songs. But a few of us rocked it until midnight. Unfortunately, I was not the best hostess – I was on edge. I’d had an unpleasant experience earlier in the day that I couldn’t quite shake, I’d come home directly after time at the treatment center – and to top it all off I was worried we’d get a noise complaint.*
STILL I managed to sing a few nineties tunes. I stayed away from the Beyonce this time.
Nels, raising the roof:
Megan and Emily rockin’ some Lorde:
Jasmine, Dale, and Ralph bust out Bel Biv Devoe’s “Poison”:
Nels regaled Megan all night. He also sported Jessah’s top hat/pilgrim hat, dressing himself as a “Fancy Ghost”:
Ralph puts us through Queensryche’s “Silent Lucidity”:
Probably my favorite performance – after all of Dalton’s (sorry, no pictures of Dalton performing for some reason), was Jasmine’s rendition of Marcy Playground’s “Sex and Candy”. Dale and I sat on the couch and did “Yeahs” Creed-style.
Nels lends a hand to Julie’s “No Scrubs” by TLC:
Nels busted out “Poker Face” – Dale, Ralph, and Julie performed pretty exertions dancing. And, apparently, eating huge slabs of cornbread.
And yeah, apparently Nels went through at least three “wardrobe changes” this evening.
* You may laugh but just a few months ago the cops knocked on my door at about 10:30 PM, citing a noise complaint from a neighbor. I was literally listening to a on-demand radio station I’d curated from a Sade song. Sade! When I opened the door to the police officer, “Holding Back The Years” was softly playing on like, volume five.
