this was such a perfect experience. all of the Kickstarter house parties have been amazing so far. but … winery? hard to beat.
I found out days earlier that a couple of my friends were going to a private AFP party on Widbey Island. I was a little jealous but altogether ok. I already had a full schedule so I just pattered about my business…until about 2 hours prior to departure!
Gabrielle had another ticket!.. By luck, or fate I was on my way to meet AFP!!! And Jason Webley!!…I didn’t even realize but I recognized him at 3feet away. *Gush* Bright red cheeks. I did my best not to look like I was spazing out for about the first 2hours.
I was in this small place with these people whom I’d never met before but had effected, evidently, so much of my life. I was whelmed, close to over, but certainly not under.
Amanda even humored me when I had to get a “good” picture. I felt so pre-madonna, silly but I knew my vanity couldn’t handle showing around a picture of myself with my mouth half open, looking like the biggest dork you’d ever met. It was a nice day though slightly tinted by recent events, the after effects of a sympathetic poem.
Nonetheless, later that evening people continued to drink their wine and were by all measures very merry. Amanda Palmer had her birthday and her best friend and fans were close by.
I’m happy I got to be a part of this on 4/23/13
