So, my sister is having a pyjama party on Saturday night for a few of her friends and me. Here's what the invitation says:
"What you need to know:
No boys allowed!!!!
Anyone who arrives without pjs will either be sent home or forced bodily into a pair of my old pjs (which are really ugly). Pjs compulsory!!!
Please also bring a bedroom pillow (for the pillow fight), teddy bear or other stuffed animal, sleeping bag to lounge on, and your favourite pj party paraphernalia from your youth (the mid to late 70s for me and the late 70s to early 80s for the rest of them) -- possibilities include chips, chocolate, glittery nail polish, pictures of cute boys, cheesy magazines, hair accessories, make-up kits, haagen daaz, ouija boards, sissy drinks, retro greatest hits CDs, tapes or LPs and party games.
I don't expect you to sleep over, but we should spend time lounging around on sleeping bags where we'll talk about our first periods, play truth or dare, practise our levitation and hypnosis skills, make prank phone calls to the loved ones we left at home, have tickle fights, tell ghost stories, do silhouette tracings of each other's hands and feet on paper and then colour them, and indulge in any other especially giggly pj past-times. Other possible activities include giving each other back or foot rubs, fixing each other's hair, painting each other's toe or fingernails, and choreographing our favourite songs. (Does anyone have a karaoke machine?) All activities optional. You're only young once, but you can be immature forever."
So, I don't have a sleeping bag and I'm really not the frivolous/silly kind of person so I'm not planning on bringing a pillow for the pillow fight but I am planning on bringing some music that I liked in the 70s and maybe some quasi-junk food (I'm thinking popcorn and chocolate milk), maybe a Tiger Beat magazine and I used to love True Confessions magazine and a stuffed animal but I can't decide which one so I'm going to post my choices and maybe, you can help me decide. This is Hyacinth, my Barbadian female rabbit:
And, this one is Aristotle and Aristotle Junior (Gund):
And, this one is Fozzie Bear:
And, here's a group photo:
Any help would be appreciated.
