hyde st

What do you get when you combine thousands of scarfies together with lots of booze and costumes? The hyde street keg party! Might as well be a holiday here the way everyone treats it!

So every house on hyde street chooses a theme (i.e. smurfs, baywatch, out of africa, anything but clothes, etc.) and then provides a keg. As the newspaper said, "sources have confirmed about 10,000 people will attend the party." [Ok, now by sources, they failed to mention that it was actually just facebook.] The popular thing is to drink a goon [boxed wine] before noon. And supposedly people started the festivities a little after 5 am. 

So our version of the day: a fort/sleepover in the living room all together Fri night. 

Wake up to all too excited people ready for hyde st. {they looked more like creeps than nerds...}

 Lindsey and I glittered and face painted (of course) and also crimped our hair. {Erin had a field trip :( but she ended up coming to hyde street anyways!}

Started with mimosas of cheap bubbly cider and gas station orange juice. And ventured out to the masses of people at Hyde street!

In a forecast of rain, rain, rain all weekend, we were lucky enough to have some sun-shining hours to bask on hyde street with all the chaos.  

The day ended with a roof caving in, somebody falling off a roof and apparently getting hurt pretty badly, and some afternoon showers to put a damper on it all. Check out some great pictures here.

and the aftermath...

we survived!!!
no idea what this means
