fire island was a blast. my costume for the luau was a hit. ted, the birthday boy, dressed up as the little mermaid. one word for this: amazing. we fashioned a tail out of a blue little mermaid shower curtain and ted ingeniously fashioned a tail using a hangar and ribbon. the tail was connected to his wrist so whenever he took a drink, the tail flapped. he also carried a fork around with him, combing his long red wig with it throughout the evening. pure genius.
we decided to go out to the bars dressed up (well, everyone except highcontrast, because he's lame. his costume was cute too, he was the hawaiian punch mascot, the little guy with red hair). even at the gay club where half the people walk around naked, we caused a scene.
the birthday boy even got hit on by the performing drag queen at a show we went to later that night. "oooooohhhh, you're a tall glass of water. what's your name honey?" "ted." "what do you do ted?" ted is very very drunk at this point. i'll also mention that he's an event planner. "i'm a carpenter. like jesus. i like to work with wood." ba-dum-ching!
at any rate, it was a hysterical evening and we got plenty of beach time.
tonight is a fashion week party. will report back with celebrity sightings tomorrow!
