Floats & Flotillas: Way More Fun Than You'd Ever Imagine

Because, really: if someone invited you to come make a ship that would actually float and gave you a bag of stuff from the recycling store and told you you had an hour to work with a group of strangers to make it work, you wouldn't expect big fun and random hilarity, now, would you?

"No, Ricë, we wouldn't."

I know this is what you'd say because it's what I thought, too; but what we didn't take into account = artists, a long day behind them, cake, and *wine.*

Well, alrighty, then! That's a whole nother thang, as we say in Texas. And indeed it was. It was, in short, a total hoot. And way cute!




Intoxicated! (or pretending to be, re: pirates)

 The launch:
The race:
The finish:
As of this writing, I have no idea who won, but you know what? It doesn't matter a single little bit. It was fabulous fun, more than I would ever have expected. If you missed it, I'm so, so sorry. I hope there's another one, and I hope you get to participate. And, truly, I hope this: that you remember to bring lots of duct tape and pipe cleaners. The really long, twisty ones.

Now THAT looks like fun.

Yep. Creative, inventive women. Mix with sugar and liquor. Let loose on bits and bobbles and glues and pastes and wires and paper and whatever....

..... I would have LOVED to be there! Hilarity to be sure! And you actually sailed them! How many were submarines? ;o)
