A pumpkin, a mouse and a bunch of mighty fine doorsWhile all my fancy friends went to Zoobilee the other night, I was at home. Again. Every year I hear the stories about the food, fun and drunken exploits of Zoobilee and every year I vow that NEXT YEAR I'm going to see them for myself but alas, it has still has never happened for some reason or another (usually financial). I've actually thought of being a volunteer just so I can watch the upper crust waddle on their high heels across beautifully manicured lawns. Do they accidentally spill their champagne glasses? Do they drop diamond earrings every where and care less about them? Are there rich handsome bachelors milling about looking for adorably chubby graphic designers who dabble in festival planning and songwriting?
These questions and others like them need to be answered. Someday they will. Meanwhile, I feel like Cinderella without the fairy godmother and I don't want to hear any more stories about how much fun you had at Zoobilee! Do you hear me wicked step-sisters?
Anyway, I'm having my own party and it will open doors that no-one has even imagined yet. So there.

|I went to Zoobilee, but as the help :) Taking down names and numbers for a local magazine. I had to ride in the "special bus" for volunteers. This event is so fancy, only "patrons" get to park in the actual parking lot.
Actually, it was fun in a weird sort of outside looking in way. Very funny to do sober. Somebody got drunk enough to sing very dirty karaoke right before I left. Dropping the F bomb at a black tie event is an interesting choice.
But I know what you mean about the Cinderella left home from the ball thing. Felt that way about many things this year, like Cook's Tour, Tall Ships, the Train to Trek, pretty much anything that costs more than $12 a ticket.

|Thanks Angie and Jen for your interesting posts. I am curious about the attendance, since the economy seems to have crimped many Tacomans spending patterns.|

|I do not know what it was like in previous years, but it seemed plenty busy to me.|
