DJ Aston was playing in the Glamshack this morning with hostess the lovely and talented Isobela. He's only played at the Glamshack a few times, he's a very good DJ and attracted quite a crowd. Many of them seemed to be from across the pond; fine fellows all the same.
After the show Isobela and I walked around Flotsam Beach. They had torn down the nice house that I would likely have rented if I wasn't in such a fantastic place already, and they tore down the one next to it too to put in four small houses. It was a shame, because all four of them were empty. After touring the island we chilled out on the beach and chatted for a while, then went birthday present shopping. It's fun to go shopping with Iso, she puts a whole new perspective on things.
That evening the craggy peaks of van Eyck's Nightclub Echo Echo resounded with the sweet, sweet strings and souls of Friendly Fire. Mack and Case really know how to close out a wild weekend with style and sass; especially sass. There were many new visitors from Journey Island that became Glamtastic that night, not an easy chore with so many of them scurrying about. Then, during the show, Case announced that today was Mack's birthday!
A surprise party was planned immediately after Mack left the stage, to continue through DJ Jocelyn's and The Tracy Stardust's Sunday Night Mayhem and Madness show. (I hope Mack doesn't get a hold of the pre-release version of this and have her surprise ruined!) Near the end of the Friendly Fire show some co-conspirators silently worked their way through the crowds passing out these special Happy Birthday Mack hats.
As soon as Mack left the stage this giant Happy Birthday banner dropped along with approximately 11 trillion brightly-colored balloons. We all put our hats on and gave her best wishes as Joce cranked up the volume. The hats were way cool with glowing lights and a scrolling Happy Birthday Mack banner around the top! As new celebrants arrived they were given hats, too.
The theme for Joce and Tracy's show was Movie night. Tracy dressed as Bat Woman and Hy was the Flash (I think), but unfortunately Joce wasn't able to dress up. She had what looked like blood-soaked bandages around her calves; I think she called them leg-warmers. I worry about her.
During the show Joce answered the question that was on all of our minds when she said that it was Mack's 18th birthday! And do you know the best part of Mack reaching the age of maturity? She has FINALLY learned how to trigger her own poofer!
