Shiny Happy People

The Forest turned out better than expected. I had to work at making myself want to go, but in the end I'm glad I did. I seem to have my groove back, dancing-wise. Which is nice. The last couple of years I've felt like I lost it somewhere in all the ickiness, and I was vaguely afraid that it was becoming permanent, but apparently not.

The people who put that party on have decor and lighting sorted. I haven't seen a full spectrum laser for a while and I can't help it but go "OOHPRETTYSHINY" whenever I do. Also, they'd created a really nice UV garden in a clearing, where I found hippie-fishing to be quite effective. My UV reactive hoops bring all the ravers to the yard...

Apparently we have festivals down to a fine art. My tent-buddy and I had our gear sorted and packed down in less than 10 minutes in the morning, and between the Illuminati members who were there we had sufficient gazebos, tarps, beanbags, tables, fluffy blankets and rubbish bags to make a nice place for people to chill, cover everyone's comfort, and make a speedy escape in the morning. Other folks commented on it in fact.

One thing that was missing though, was TAFKARF. Dancefloors just aren't the same without him standing on them, counting. Also, the cicadas seemed very confused by the whole thing and sang all night. It was.. odd to hear cicadas at 3am.

And then I got home and Dr Wheel was there and it was nice because I hadn't slept so I did get my end-of-night cuddles, just in mid afternoon the next day. <3
