Murder mystery mayhem
With temperatures hovering around -30ºC and daylight decreasing decidedly daily, most things around Davis are finding it difficult to get started, including us.
Not so Saturday evening. We all received our invitations a few weeks ago so had ample opportunity to get to grips with the characters we were to play in this evening of intrigue and entertainment. The night began early with mug-shots taken of everyone as they arrived at the LQ, now transformed into a den for delinquents, followed by platter upon platter of delicious finger food to satiate our hunger courtesy of Ali Bye (aka Brigid).
Expertly and aggressively hosted by Dana Badthing (aka Steph) and Lou Ting (aka Joe) the festivities started with a shoot out, the fastest gun in the East Antarctic being Ann Onomous (aka Cathie) cool, calm and collected against Celia Fate (aka Linc). No surprises there!
The next thing we know there’s been a cold blooded murder in our midst. One of our own, Travis Dee (aka Jose) has been cut down in his prime and we spend the next few hours competing for clues, fairly or foully, to bring the murderer to justice.
In between blaming each and every one in opposing teams, and your own, and solving the crime, we also enjoyed musical tables. Ali Bye (aka Brigid) was the last dancer standing and feeding and eating cake while blindfolded, Con Traversy (aka Tom) and the Gambler (aka Nick) cleaned off the cream cake before most had even got their first mouthful.
The finale saw us all on the right track some time around midnight. Ruth Less (aka Steve) was the culprit. (S)He looked the part anyway!
