This is your brain on sugar

So last night was the FAS2 Sugar Ball (For those not familiar with the ways of Second Floorers, it's basically a costume ball type thing, only, well, heavily budgeted. And instead of having alcohol, we have excessive amounts of sugar. FAS is the Uni's Fantasy and Sci-Fi club)

Costume wise, I was being exceptional lazy, because I couldn't be bothered going to any effort to come up with a good costume. So I defaulted back to a Firefly-style Companion's outfit (because when you have as many items of clothing as I do of Chinese silk in interesting styles, it ain't hard).

Oh, and in the afternoon before it I had another op-shop adventure. Visited Savers (God od Op-Shops), and bought a plain black dress to wear under the red and gold silk bolero jacket. And wandered and browsed a bit, et al.

But, onto the Ball itself.

Things What I Learnt:
- Short Courses Guides do not burn.
- Paper towelling burns rather too well.

...What? Totally isn't a pyro

To explain: At one point in the evening, we had a ritual burning of a section of The Eye of Argon. Which was rather too much fun for words.

What else? There were some extrememly yummy chocolate... thingies. Apparently obtained from the Reject Shop. As well as music and dancing. And some guy showed up with a Fourth Doctor scarf, which I sadly failed at kidnapping.

Yays random excuses for eating lots of sugar!

ETA: Another rec up at crack_van. Put some good smut into the mix.
