Dancing Liberally - Surprise Formal

Yes, I know I promised Woodstock, but that will have to wait another week. It's Witchy's surprise birthday party (No spilling the beans -- she never reads this; she just asks me) at Jal's Sanctuary. Dress up formally. I've put up free tuxes and ballgowns at the NN-Wellstone Free Store. We'll dance the night away to the fine DJing of Rocky the Yakspinner. Dick will be banned. May or may not do a contest, what do you all think? Wotchy will arrive between 9 and 10 SLT (that's 6am or 7am her time). Her actual birthday is the 27th, so wish her well that day, but don't say a word about this.

Big Bands at the Yak
Dress in your favourite 30s/40s/50s duds and swing as DJ Rocky plays all your requests. Now as forewarned is forearmed, DJ Rocky told Jane, and she quotes, "I'm pretty sure Benny Goodman did songs about muskrats, and dead zombie biker catholic school chicks". Jane called Dick Cheney to see if they needed a third in the Labour* Day hunting party...

The First Redneck's Reign of Terror is nearing it's end. Let's celebrate with a can of Coors and the recite the sacred words "Next year in Leavenworth." Stop by for a little discussion and a lot of DJ Rocky the Yakshaver's great music. Dress up in your redneck best for a chance to win Lindens. Oh hell, dress scandalously again too if you want. That went quite well, and the word "scandal" seems very appropriate for this kind of send-off. As usual, Dick! Cheney will be off in the corner forging away (this time, I suspect it's false Paraguayan identity papers.)

Dancing Liberally - Scandals!

It was 34 years ago today when Sam Irvin made that Nixon guy pay (apologies to John, Paul, George, and Ringo...OK, not that bastard, Paul). Nixon announces his resignation, August 8, 1974. But GOP scandals continue. Abramoff, Cunningham, and Noe are sitting in jail. Sen. Stevens may be there soon, and there is still much more to come in the DOJ and other assorted scandals. Let's celebrate these victories with a little discussion and dancing to the tunes of Rocky the Yakslapper and his magical internets tubes music machine. Dress up scandalously or scandal-relatedly for a chance to win lindens or just come as you are (all apologies to Kurt, Krist, and Dave...OK, not that bastard Kurt who left us too soon).
