The Dirty 30
there were about 200 photos.
here are some of my "family friendly" faves...
first of all: a huge huge huge mega round of applause to Neighbour Cait for dedicating 7 hours of prep, packing, labelling the different recipes into separate bags with idiot-proof instructions for assembly! each recipe had its own bag with all the components stored in separate tupperwares. i really should have taken a photo of the amazing job she did packing.
another mega insane round of applause to kev for halving and pitting about 7 cups of cherries for the rustic cherry tarts and making the incredible prosciutto wrapped pork tenderloin with plum chutney.
those who come to the marshmallow bowls, come to die...
good times on the patio with Laydee Kate. Nipple Stickers Nik sampling the foods.
the left side of our makeshift bar. more booze arrived as the night went on, topped with lemons, limes, cukes, oranges, blueberries and lychee.
my cousin Nat unknowingly bought me my favourite lipstick from 2004-2006 and was appalled to know that it was that old... she would have been 13 years old at the time
creepy Tim & Eric masks courtesy of KLF were worn throughout the evening
PIMM'S!!!! The booze of summertime!!!
MY BRO SHOWED UP!!!!!
and brought a small crew including a couple of numbskulls i've known since they were 5
surrounded by gorgeous views
i will never leave Vancouver
the pool below. once again, we didn't make enough effort to hit the pool or hot tub. next year.
the penis cookies came out. i wish i had been around to take a photo before they went deep throat on everyone BUT a big thank you to whomever did their best to take this photo!!! the lighting under this lamp was hell all night long!!! and while i am at it, thank you to everyone who took it upon themselves to take photos throughout the night while i was indisposed.
i managed to find these two little guys before they got eaten up!
KLF you are the best
you will might be wondering if Starbucks sponsored the party, but really the hotel charges $1/glass so Caela went over to the Starbucks and was generously given a bag of cups to supply our soiree! you will also notice a difference in my husband's behaviour. it's called tequila overload which he paid for dearly the next morning. thank you to everyone who accepted a lapdance from him.
luchador love: attempting to feed a penis cookie to Andrew through his mask
you can't see it very well, but while Ange goes down on the Phanie penis cookie, i've got a jizz bum wearing a lovely rainbow sprinkled thong
penis maker extraordinaire
Lindsay & Alexis rocking wasted effort necklaces
linds found a baggy of bath salts by the tub. look how pretty they are!
trashed husband invading the lady lounge
harem of sweet honeys
that is some serious plastic surgery, Nicole
possibly the most awesome photo of the night
James and his crew took off. He would be leaving for Vegas the next morning.
SO STOKED that Neil made it over after a long day at work!!!!!!!
so sweet!!!! he brought me macaroons and chocolates from thierry!!!!!!!!!
cutest couple. make some babies already, guys.
the gold fringed, sequined clitoried vagina piñata!!!!
so maybe it doesn't really look like a vag, but think about what a vag would do if it were going out on the red carpet for the Emmy's or something. this is pretty good!!!
why didn't anyone else grab the field hockey stick from me? didn't anyone else want a turn???
thanks Neil for risking your body
bubble gum, tampons, white rats, 3 black bats, and about 20 little homemade baggies of candies
kisses from Taryn
this marvelous Dirty 30 cake created by the one and only Lyndsay Sung from Coco Cake
a portrait cake that couldn't have been more appropriate
motor boating myself
slicing and serving my own boobs for everyone to taste...
babely blondes and brunettes living together in harmony
Jordan & Darcy making out in my gold fringe
being fed my own breasts

THANK YOU TO OZ FOR DOING ANOTHER CRAZY JOB WITH MY MAKEUP!!!!
