Murder Mystery R Us

This weekend, my friends and I all took part in a murder mystery dinner. We had an absolute blast. It was set in the 20's, though most of our dresses are from other eras, and intrique was at it's best. I played Mary Toosteal, wife to Congressman and presidential candidate Darrin Toosteal, played by Nick. Someone was murdered at dinner and it was our job to figure out who while we created further drama to confuse other players. My husband had some motive to kill mafia member Don Ravioli, as his connections with him would make his character seem less than suitable for the presidential office. I knew this and used it to my full advantage because, though I appeared to be the perfect, loving, political wife, I really didn't like my husband and knew he was philandering with two other women. (I feel your pain, Hillary.) Not that I was perfect myself, I was having an affair with the Chicago mayor who was also planning on running for president, though I was the only one who knew of his political ambitions.

Through a series of events that would blow The Young and the Restless out of the water, my goal was to discredit my husband so that my leaving him would seem more than acceptable. And I would be leaving for another possible presidential candidate, so either way, I most likely would have ended up as the first lady. I knew what I was doing. :)

I had a wonderful time. It was so much fun. I will be posting a great deal more pictures as soon as I'm able (probably tonight). In the meantime, here is me and my loving husband.

I just noticed that by me shrinking this photo, it has squished our height. If you click on the picture, you'll see we're not so sausage-y :)

If you click on the picture you can totally see the lip stick smear on my lip. I can explain every thing.
