I Heard it Through the Grapevine.

But I Didn't Believe It...

Until I Saw the Pictures!

OK, my dear readers, I heard it through the grapevine that ActiveRain's 5th Birthday Party was a wild one!

From my "reputable sources" I've been told that it all started out pretty tame.

However, as the night wore on, and the frosty adult beverages started fulfilling their promise, things got a bit crazy!

Apparently, our fearless leader, Niki got it all started when he arrived in a clown suit....

Niki got the 5th ActiveRain Birthday party started!

And then, as if that wasn't enough, and we all know it should have been, Bob Stewart, Brad Andersohn, Ben Kinney and Renee Burrows rounded up the troops for an impromptu Karaoke sing off!

After running through a bunch of BeeGees (trust me you want to click that link!) songs, a few Barry Manilow hits, and some tunes by whoever these guys they are, Kerrie and Kelly took the prize for the craziest thing to ever happen at an ActiveRain after hours party.....

Kerrie and Kelly perform the Pajama Dance!

Now I do have to confess that I was not at the party, but I heard it through the grapevine...

Happy 5th Birthday ActiveRain!

Happy 5th Birthday ActiveRain!

Some people will take any opportunity to celebrate.  Shocking behavior to say the least.

Extremely creative in the party mode but you made this all so much fun to enjoy for those of us who couldn't be there to celebrate.

Craig, that should have been a spectacular party. The individual RainCamps are always a blast so the one on home turf should have been sensational. From the few accounts, it seems that what happens in Seattle stayed in Seattle. They must have bribed with a gazillion points for all to not talk.

Hi Craig!  Glad to learn you were sober enough to read about it - you are soooooo  right!  It was great fun, wish you were there.  Perhaps you'll make it to the next one?

Christine - I wish I was there too. We had such a great time in Charlotte. But I'll bet this one was really a wild one!

Renee - Me too Renee! Glad to see you made it back home safely. I think Debe's still in transit as we speak!

Joan - AR is growing up! I remember when it was just a baby!

Charles - Funny how when we're really young we're in diapers and then when we're really old we need them again! Hope they saved some!

Jason - You have those same reputable sources too?!!! All is well my friend. Hope things are going well for you too.

Deb - Glad you enjoyed Deb! It's all part of the full service I provide!

Patricia - Thank you Patricia! I'm just having some fun here in the Rain!

Doug - Shocking and appalling!

Barb - Just trying to keep my friends smiling!

Bill - And that was the whole purpose of this post Bill. Glad it worked!

Ed - I'm thinking you're right about the gag order points!

Joan - I saw Renee's photos too. The only thing missing from them was EVERYBODY else who wished they were there but couldn't be.

James - Hey James! It's my goal to attend at least one RainCamp annually. I wish this was the one. But it's looking more and more like Chi-Town for me this year.

Gayle -I knew I was digging deep into the memory vault when I threw the Raisins into the mix there! Glad you remembered them I'll bet 1/2 of the folks on here don't even know what I'm talking about!

Dorie - Thank you Dorie! Nope! I never sleep! Less than 6 hours a night. I just have too much to do!

Georgina - You should have called me Georgina. YOu know I would have fired up the Craigster 1 Gulfstream and picked you up!

Hi Craig!  Oh, how I wish you'd have gone out with me!  I got the crown for traveling the farthest and I would have graciously given it to you had you gone!  What a BLAST--and you're right, Charlotte was TAME compared to Seattle!  The birthday celebration was great but, the rest of the trip was amazing!  We didn't have a minute to be bored or work unless we got up at 5 a.m. to get it done!  I'm so glad that I went though--a great experience, indeed!

Debe - You definitely traveled pretty far for this one Debe. So glad it was all that you expected... and more! I would have loved to have been there. It just wasn't in the cards for me... this time. It's looking like Chicago RainCamp is though.
