Old Friends/New Friends in LIC

After a long day of rugby, and wandering around Yonkers trying to find our way home, I headed to that strange land called Queens, where streets, avenues, places, and blvds, all compete for the same numbers.

Invited by Melanie, one of my new favourite people, Charlie, Francine, and I schlepped it out to Long Island City, taking the requisite detour from missed exits and generally bad navigation in the industrial heartland of that borough. Met some new people, re-met some existing people, snacked, talked, laughed, had a good time.

I need to start taking more pictures again.

By the way, this is what we were laughing at.

Panda Party in LIC

Perhaps the one of the more randomly themed parties I’ve attended, but yes, tonight was a Panda Party. Laura W., being ever the lover of all things Asian, decided to host a viewing of Kung-Fu Panda, and the backing of Panda-shaped goodies.

As you can tell, the Rice Krispies Treat Panda collapsed after a while.
