A Hotsy-Totsy Night
Colin and I attended the Murder Mystery Dinner that his boss-lady puts on every year for their department. We went back to 1928 Chicago, where the politicians and police enforcement were almost more crooked than the big shot crooks who ran the place.
Colin was the district attorney S. Treighton Harrow, who took bribes from everybody and was trying to bump off the leader of the mafia. He hired me, Anna Maria Carlotta Sassine - or as my friends called me, "Torchy" - to actually do the job because I played a night-club singer / button man (hired killer).
We had deep dish, Chicago-style pizza and cheesecake for dinner and over all, a very good time. The people who writes these things are extremely witty and fairly "pun-ny". Not to mention, everyone that works with Colin seems to be a joker in his own right - because they were all really hilarious to sit and figure this out.
It was really fun to dress up in fancy rags for the night. And while this is probably really silly, I realized earlier this week that my eyebrows were much too thick for what was in fashion during the 20s. So Matti and I went to the mall on Friday and had our eyebrows threaded. They are a lot thinner now than I'm used to, but I really liked the end result. Not only were they perfect for tonight, but they are shaped and very clean looking for as long as I can maintain them and keep them this way. Matti did my make-up, and did SUCH a fantastic job.
Afterward, Colin and I went and took a few pictures. Which I put in a collage at the beginning of the post.
