Cake? It must be Mata's birthday... And his 30th, no less!
Mata's 30th Birthday Party, Feb 3rd/4th 2007 - Guildford
Jon (Jonman on the forums) demonstrates his invisible wind-up camera. Matt (Matthew on the forums) on the floor applauds this innovation. Anna (LadyMcDeath on the forums) watches in amazement, as does Bonni Jo.
Matt (Smiler) does his best Doctor Evil impersonation. Julia doesn't.
Dave wasn't as drunk as he looks in this photo.
Look! I was there! (Photo by Becca/Rykan)
Steve (What?) shows his trademark cheeky grin that's melted the heart of a thousand ships.
Ryn (Faerieryn) continues her remarkable knack for blinking while photos are being taken. Jess looks slightly scared, but don't worry Ryn, that's Jess's normal expression.
After drinking his magical energy juice, Barry (Mr Fuzzy) grew to enormous proportions.
Dave's magical energy juice did not have the same effect.
Dawn, on the left, discusses things with dark shapes. Becca's head lurks by the side of the sofa.
From the left Matt, Dave (a different one), the top of Becca's head, Ryn pulling an odd expression, Jess, the back of Matt's head, Tanya pulling an equally odd expression to Ryn's, and the back of Sues.
From the left: Tanya pulling another odd expression, the back of Matt, the back of Sues, Jon, the back of Bonni Jo, and Anna demonstrating the Swedish 'pin the tail on the donkey' technique.
Barry looking like a startled bunny - as usual.
Becca displays a large clump of Maltesers. Mr Floppity, in the background, gets into the party spirit with a nice bow on his head.
Later in the evening - most people are passing out except for Jon...
And Matt. Anna is just about awake. This may have been the start of Jon and Matt's four hour discussion of the topic 'is violence ever justifiable?' The photo reminded me of something...
The next morning (Feb 4th, my birthday)...
I counted 71 cans when I was doing the recycling. There were lots of bottles too. Eek!
I had a great night, and the best birthday in ages. Cheers to everyone who came!
