Heather, Cristina, and I were on an elevated stage off to the side of the main stage and were surprised to find we'd be painting a board whose shape could only immediately suggest some sort of marshmallow or cloud. Inspiration was slow-coming and we spit-balled for about an hour, tossing around different ideas. As 9 o'clock rolled-around, we decided to paint a portrait divided into 3, so we could each have an area to work on. I started painting first and we just kinda rotated shifts...
...gin, vodka, whiskey, whiskey...
Is it already 1 am!?
The music had been bangin', the people were great (so many friends and co-workers showed-up), and the 15 teams participating had brought their C-or-better games. The votes were tallied from the audience and...drum-roll...WE GOT 4TH PLACE!! It was an awesome experience and I'm proud with what we put together. All the pieces will be auctioned-off early next year.
I'm looking at another laaaaate night tonight and I have neither nap'd nor caffeinated. Time to get something energetic.
Me, Cristina Mezuk, and Heather Herrera
(Can you guess which bit I did??? :-D)
