Party Planning

I love when people are clever. The Pony is off tonight, to one in the near endless stream of celebrations for classmates turning 13. Yes, it's Bat and Bar Mitzvah season. Already this morning she attended Temple services and lunch, and the fun party starts tonight.

The invitation for this soiree came with a full 11 x 8.5 page announcing "Windsor* Unleashed!: Get ready for the ride" Beneath a picture of the celebrant himself comes the legend "Starring and Directed by Windsor Bermondsey in his movie debut."

*I have changed the names to protect the innocent, and used our dog's name instead, as it has the appropriate gravitas.

The entire invitation continued the movie theme, and then we drove up to the party. On the door was a large lighted marquee with the invitation mocked up as a movie poster. The guest pulled up to an entry surrounded by velvet ropes, and a truck holding an array of spotlights sat in the parking lot rotating lights across the sky. Only the paparazzi were missing--probably an oversight, as the thoroughness of the themeing was impressive.

Perhaps there are hundreds of disposable cameras inside. I am looking forward to hearing if there actually was a movie presented.
