And it took Lucy about 5 tries to blow the candles out.

So, a lot has happened over the past week! Lucy's 21st birthday soiree and then our adventure to Tokyo! I'm going to update in two parts. So, first off, we had Lucy's birthday on the 20th! We like to throw crazy themed parties here and her birthday was no exception. What kinda crazy theme party, you ask? The BEST kind.
That's right! A TOGA party! Yeeeeah! It was a hoot! I didn't think anyone was going to dress up! I actually had to close that night with our new guy, James, and we were both uncertain of whether people were actually going to wear togas or not. But, upon finishing work and going home, we discovered that togas were on. So, we changed and headed over to ze pub. I have NEVER tied a toga before and it took like 5 tries to get one that was covering and flattering. I think I did ok~
Zoe kept asking people who they were dressed up as. My answer? Minerva, Goddess of Wisdom. (It was a ROMAN toga party!) David's toga made him look like a cave man. Ahahaha. And he wore shorts underneath it, the twit! But, it was awesome. We had a great time. There was lots of talking and photo opportunities. And for some reason, Liam kept lifting his toga up to show off his junk. ...He wasn't wearing underwear. Thankfully, he only did it when I wasn't looking. But, Saitoh-san had my camera after taking a group picture for me and he was following Liam around and snapping pictures. So, I had a lovely photo of Liam's bum on my camera when I got it back. Needless to say, that got deleted right away. Yuck.
 After a while, we brought out Lucy's cake. We didn't know what to make her, since she doesn't overly like sweets, so we have a lemon pound cake made for her. And the pastry department made little chocolate heart messages to decorate it with. It was sweet. When we brought the cake out, we all sang and the candles on top made it look like a torch! It was funny. And it took Lucy about 5 tries to blow the candles out. Ahahaha. We all got a piece and it was really tasty!
Someone produced a pair of birthday cake shades shortly thereafter, and much (slightly dangerous) fun was had.
And then we all just laughed and danced and carried on. It was an awesome night.
No idea whats going on in that last photo, but hey. Whatever. You may have noticed that David changed his toga style halfway through the night. Ahahaha. He opted for a more Roman style toga later. And we matched. Yay! Although, by the end of the night he had gone from Roman to Sith Lord.
Awesome times!
