Time: Past 1 am, January 1st, 2010.
The event: The Chillout 2010 party at J’s crib
The first day of the first decade of the third millenium.
And all I can hear in my head when I look at this picture (friends Leng and Judith) is George Michael’s Last Christmas, which, by the way, is still the best compared to all the rip-offs out there. Hear that, Taylor Swift?
Crowded room, Friends with tired eyes,
I’m hiding from you and your soul of eyes,
I thought you were someone to rely on,
Me, I guess I was a shoulder to cry on. . .
Everyone came in the colour theme of black, white, or black and white, and it made all the difference in how the pictures turned out. Exhibit A and B:
We will remember Measles and the creative names that were bandied about that dark and stormy night: Stargirl, Lady Gaga and Ja Mess, were among the more flamboyant, simple ones like Cheese, Rain, and Strawberry, and interesting and mysterious ones like Godzilla, Pokerface, and C#.
Definitely a night to remember.
