Excitement!

My costume for the ball is finished, as of about 11pm last night. Which it had to be, because I'll be away tonight, and the next time I arrive home will be about 3 hours before the ball starts. I'm still not saying what it is, but that doesn't stop me expressing generic excitement about it. How delicious to know that it is ready and waiting for me to transform myself into a creature of mystery and allure at the end of the week. *Generic!Squee*

Photographs will follow for those not attending the event in person.

I did manage to find time for dinner with kantti in the Noodle Bar last night, which was lovely as I haven't seen her since July. The food was good, but we were underwhelmed by the fortunes which came in our fortune cookies: "Smile when you are ready" and "In order to take, one must first give". Very dour and Victorian, I felt.

Then tonight I shall be the guest of keris and davefish in sunny Coventry, which doubtless will include a lot of us getting over-excited about the ball, since we're all going. I wonder if I shall have the self-discipline to keep quiet about the exact nature of my costume? *stiffens sinews* And whether I shall get a sneaky preview of theirs? *dons Sekrit Agent shades*

Gosh, that sounds tremendously exciting. :-)

I should like to be able to transform myself into a creature of mystery and allure. It seems a bit of a tall order, mind you...

You may only reveal the Sekrit Nature of our costume in exchange for bribery or sexual favours. I have spoken.

Ah, well I had been working on the principle that the Mystery was to be guarded with my life, yea even under the Greatest Paine of Torture and Tickling. So in fact you are leaving me with more room for manoeuvre than I thought, there!

Well, while some of my concern was with maximising our effect, most of it was with the risk of lazy people hearing about it and nicking the idea. I suspect that at this stage it's a bit late for that to really be an issue :)

As for whether the Mystery is to be guarded with your life - well, have you been initiated, or haven't you?

I could hardly know the Mystery to guard it if I hadn't now, could I?

There you go then :)

Of course, if people ask you about our costumes, you could always just say "Hye Kye!" and look mysterious. That would be pleasingly ironic :)

Does bribery include food and somewhere to stay tonight and not getting trampled on by heffalumps?

I shall let that question rest upon her own conscience.

Have no fear - I was Strong. And I managed to find out what davefish would be wearing, too! *cackles*

Food so amazing that it could be practically classed as a sexual favour?

That's cheating! :P

It probably counts as bribery, though...
