a) I'm sure we will fit in many games of Cards Against Humanity, and I will bring the Dixit/Pixit stuff if there is demand. Also [ profile] ninjetti75's board and role-playing games.

b) Sparkly Dancing Boy Cookies, cooking and decorating. [ profile] stellamira has agreed to take charge of the cooking, as she has a recipe, and after that, anyone who feels like it can participate in the personalisation of the ninjabread cookies.

c) Sparkly Lyrics Quiz, which I think [ profile] bubbleforest was, er, volunteered to run—are you up for that? And [ profile] trumpeterofdoom expressed a willingness to help compile questions.

d) The Bobblehead Adventures! At least, I think [ profile] nopseud is going to bring marionettes. I suggest the small ones might be the most flexible, and if they have their strings, they can be posed 'dancing'. We must simply make sure that the bestringed SDBs accompany us on all excursions. I feel sure they will also be photographed making out in the shower, on the pool table, on the dashboard of the minibus etc.

Dammit. I don't think I have that miniature Lava Lamp any longer. There should be a baleful presence following them about.

e) Photo Scavenger Hunt, [ profile] rikes to organise. This presumably needs a Final Deadline and a judging time to be set towards the end of the week.

One of the main things that came out of our discussions about Camp last time was that we need to figure out a timetable well in advance, so it's time to start thinking about what we're going to do at Camp, and when we are going to do it.

I'm going to put up separate posts about the options over the next couple of days, as comments could get really unwieldy if they are all attached to just one.

Not everybody is going to be there for the full week, and there are various arrival times, so if you're a non-standard participant and really, really want to do something that's tentatively scheduled for a time you won't be at Camp, now is your chance to make a strong case for it to be scheduled more handily.

Posts will be:

1. Outings

2. Footage Schedule and Festivities

3. Other Fannish Stuff

4. A proposed timetable, as a place to start!

Well, instead of a Sparkly Party we are, OBVIOUSLY, going to have a Wedding Day, with Wedding Reception. We have the Carter nuptials and Lance Loves Michael to squee over, to be followed by a proper wedding-style feast with appropriate cake and the inevitable disco afterwards. So make sure you are ready to dress for the occasion* **. (Not sure if it will be on Saturday or Sunday, but presumably the weekend will be when we have the most people there.)

Now, I think it would be awesome to have someone take charge of being the Cheesy Wedding DJ. As (some of) you are already aware, we have the awesome video wall of awesomeness and can therefore have a video wedding disco. [ profile] nopseud has the nominated vids from last year, but we must be able to find more stuff that is fun to dance to. Does anyone fancy taking on the job of compiling them and putting them into an order that will get everybody up and dancing and exhausted at our Wedding Reception? (Note that this probably gives you the opportunity to influence the chosen music, if that is an incentive.)


Other footage. We are, naturally, expecting that the Backstreet documantAry will be available, with extras, to provide another evening's worth of joy, weeping, angry shouting etc, but that still leaves some time to be occupied.

It would be really nice—I think—to have a telly-watching Plan in place in good time, and we have three and a half months to get ourselves prepared, so.

Firstly, what would people like to watch besides the above mentioned? Particular concerts? Films which feature SDBs in any guise? (I yearn to watch 'The Bloody Indulgent', which looks like UTTER CRACK, but will it be possible?) Would an evening spent comparing 'On The Line' with 'Friends With Benefits' be an evening well spent, or not? Is anyone prepared to endure enjoy 'Harry and Max' one more time? 'Edison'? House of Carters? Dancing with the Stars (a dance-off?)? Nominations in comments, please!

I think we could also put together brief collections of stuff which we've enjoyed and would like to share with Camp. I have, indeed, been collecting Lance footage under the "Because He's My Favourite" label for a while. I can fill about 45 minutes with five, just five, choice pieces. Can anyone else do the same for Your Favourite? (ETA: I have also found some fun Joey stuff.) Ideally, using more recent-ish footage we haven't been watching for ever? (How about Justin's VMAs footage?) We could have a "Because He's My Favourite" evening. I don't expect everyone to have as much material available as I have, because Lance has been very visible of late, and good luck finding 45 minutes of recent Chris footage, but I'd love to see it! Or you could compile a bunch of stuff on a different Theme, like "Crossovers" or "Cute Moments with Babies/Animals" or "Incredibly weird songs which JC sings on"... whatever you like, including the Classics. Any volunteers?

Your Camp Sparkle needs YOU!

* Dress code for Lance's wedding was 'Royal Wedding meets Met Ball', so pretty much anything goes, and you probably cannot have too much sparkle

** Magnificent hats will have to be removed while watching the footage, unless you are in the back row.

As you probably all know by now, there's a new popslash podfic community [ profile] dirtypod. I made a request for our 5 word stories (both 2007 and 2008) to be recorded, and for that I need the author's (or authors') permission. Since there are so many in these, I don't think it's necessary for everybody to comment, but I just wanted to let you know. And if somebody's very much opposed to the idea, do comment.

And if you have a microphone, please consider recording them. Because I would definitely prefer hearing them read by a sparkly camper. :)

As those of you who were present are aware, one of the diversions available at Camp Sparkle was the Pink Book, into which was inscribed a story. Authors added five words at a time, as the urge struck. Contributors were: [ profile] nopseud, [ profile] pensnest, [ profile] trumpeterofdoom, [ profile] urbanoceanix, [ profile] saba1789, [ profile] rikes, [ profile] ihearthings_ii, [ profile] stellamira, [ profile] turloughishere, [ profile] iconis, [ profile] cardalia, [ profile] ninjetti75, [ profile] bubbleforest, [ profile] seiyaharris, [ profile] adelate, [ profile] ephemera_pop, [ profile] turps33, [ profile] _ducks, [ profile] simply_fly_away, [ profile] saffronra, and [ profile] archie_gremlin. Yes indeed, everyone who attended Camp Sparkle participated in the creation of this story. I warned you I would name and shame you all, and so I have.

IMPORTANT: in case the above does not constitute sufficient warning, please also be aware that we redefined the words 'bad' and 'wrong' during the weekend. Those of you with strong nerves may now read on.

DISCLAIMER: no actual ducks were harmed during the making of this story, but severe damage was done to the pile of pixie stix.
