David's Birthday Party, 2002

As photographed by Lemur-Cat (aka Gina)

'Tis David David. Considering it's his birthday it's appropriate that we have a picture of him.
Michael, and a wall-type thing 'Tis Michael. And a wall. And, like, Simone's shoulders and hair. What great composition this photo has.
How lazy I am that I did not crop it.
Cameras need to be photographed too Tyson with camera. Alex points out redundancy of photographing photographers.
David and Suz David and Suz both make a point of looking away from the camera. But hey, it's such a fascinating bed, of
course it draws their attention.
Sarah Sarah.
people Contains: Miranda, Lexa, Alex, and ... James, right?
Poorly lit war of the cameras David and Michael, or some sillhouette that could be Michael, with cameras. I think there were more
cameras than this, so we didn't get the maximum possible number of cameras in one picture ::sulk::
Many many people... People. Lotsa people.
Alex Alex.

More on the subject of foodMichael eating aforementioned food.
Eric being the life of the partyDavid's roommate Eric.

shook up the Coke.

Candle Saga part 1The Candle Saga, part 1. David prepares to blow out the seemingly defenseless candles.
Candle Saga part 2Part 2. The candles feign smoky death. Er, blown-outness.
Candle Saga part 3Part 3. The candles are miraculously resurrected!
Candle Saga part 4Part 4: the end... or is it? The stubborn candles are executed by drowning as an example to other candles.
Candle Saga - the epilogue ... or is it?The candles' death smoke lingers in the air... (causing worry over sprinkler alarm systems)
David + MirandaDavid and Miranda celebrate the resolution of the candle incident. ::ominousness:: As Michael and Tyson
look on in seeming agreement.
Shock!But oh no! The spirits of the dead candles have taken over Michael and Tyson and are trying to
asphyxiate David in return!
OnlookersThe crowd of onlookers are appropriately astonished.
JamesAnd now for something completely different!
ResolutionMichael and Tyson somehow overcome the force of the dead candle spirits. And the peasants rejoice.
Okay, there were no peasants, so we got Lexa to rejoice instead. But she was watching TV. Let's just say,
"there was rejoicing... probably... of some kind." And the candle saga really did finally end.
That will get some rejoicing.
TV + cake = goodActually, we had to wage war against the candles because you can't eat cake with flaming firey candles on it.
Alex.  Cake.Alex with cake.
