"With the tree and the cranes, and I was like...*fanning herself with one hand and feigning sobs*"
|The notorious petal fold.|
So, when we sat down for art therapy, there was no maccaroni art. Julie did her best to teach us how to paint Grimalkin on a rock while Monica listened to the monotone man on her phone describe how easy it is to fold a paper crane, all the while cursing under her breath. One day she will master the petal fold. Oh yes.
We didn't fold 1000 cranes, so no wishes for us. However, I think it did sufficiently freak out the housekeeping staff. Not as much as our plan of acquiring a Justin Bieber poster and folding a giant Bieber crane would have, but there's always next time.
Pizza was the next order of business. I found this place online that had great reviews and we all jumped in the car. My GPS took us on a senic tour of Louisville through old neighborhoods with giant, decades old houses that are now and probably will forever be way out of my price range. Finally, we arrived at Za's Pizza Pub. Shortly after we got inside a cheesy, delicious large pepperoni pizza landed on our table and we verified the reviews. It was, in fact, the best pizza in town. No disappointment here.
Sunday morning we all hooked up for breakfast and Julie dragged her husband along. He was an amazing sport, and surprisingly did not order the obligatory man breakfast full of meat products and artery clogging goodness. He had lingonberry crepes. The greasey goodness was all on my plate, save the hashbrowns Julie took off my hands.
Then came the Kelly's big party, which was not short of devastatingly gorgeous. The whole room was done up in blacks and pinks, and there was Nevermore paraphenalia absolutely everywhere.
Kelly was dressed to match her book, wearing black dress with a pink ribbon around her waist. Belly dancers from Kelly's dance group entertained the crowd for a ew songs, and Poe himself even made an appearance.
Of course we brought Kelly a purple crane to celebrate her book release. He flirted shamelessly with the ravens on the tables and even got his picture taken with the cake.
