Blog Party to end all Blog Parties at the Palace

Cybervassals has set an Olympic Blogging Challenge: Host a blog party based on your blogroll and include as many guests as you can before your fingers collapse in exhaustion. The Top 10% (those with the most links) participating in this assignment will win a Gold Medal! Results will be posted at the IOBC Headquarters.So here goes: Welcome to the first blog party at the Palace!

After fruitlessly trying to upload a 'BlogOlympics Training Camp' photo to her blog [:-P] the Queen logged off and went downstairs. She pulled the silken curtains together, shutting out the cold and frosty night. She put on some gentle music to break the ice and ran a nervous hand through her hair. The tables were laid. Daisy, Wendy, Rosie and Dawn were busily putting the finishing touches to the candles and the glitter. Aginoth and Mrs Aginoth relaxed in the lounge with Cyberkitten and dave, discussing faith and science, while Cowboy swapped stories with Hoss - with the audience of a delighted OldOldLady and Ivoryfrog, the latter trying to work out the American accents!
The doorbell rang and there was Cat, bringing Shaggy, Scooby and Scout to play with Pandora and Charlie upstairs while the party was going on. With Cat was Thumper and SpouseThingy, armed with crates containing Max and Buddah - more feline playmates!
The party kicked off gently, with various conversations moving around, and the faint sounds of Buddah breaking china upstairs.
Amber was chatting to Vanessa and Courtney about children, with Dena chiming in now and then. Kdubs listened from a nearby comfy chair, her head resting on the arm.
Fluke, Eric and Jean-Luc occupied a small corner of the room discussing the merits of time travel ethics. Having been snubbed by Fluke Mr Sprok moodily chewed on carrot sticks and glared out of the window. Stephanie and Mother were telling Minerva and June all about the strength of crystals in one's existence with Mar-see-ah, Kitty and Judy listening intently. Then Stephanie offered to read Tarot and a queue quickly formed. Killired, Laquet, Cindy, Ribbiticus, Tabby and Michele waited eagerly for their readings.
Meanwhile, Kat and Deni extolled the virtues of New York to a fascinated group of Brits; Rashbre, SID and Spindleshanks were all throwing questions madly at the Big Apple Dwellers.
Margalit arrived a little late and out of breath (must be the teenage children) and brought some excellent music for us to listen to. MamaB, Mar, Blogfather, Scouser and Barbara bopped the night away in the corner, although there was some mention of the way Scouser never let Barbara out of his sight!
Over a few glasses of beer, Carmi, Uisce, Cin and Utenzi discussed photography in all its glory, recalling favourite shots in immense detail. Pete thought the idea of photography might help him create more realistic gaming characters, so he listened intently and asked questions of the three intrepid photographers.
Cybervassals made notes for the BlogOlympics and munched on chicken and thinly sliced beef.

The Palace Blog Party was well underway for another year. The Queen dropped gently into her favourite armchair and contemplated all her happy friends - and wondered if anyone else would be calling by..... :-)

ps - Wordless Wednesday will return next week.
