Tiffany's pictures from Nick's 26th birthday

During august/september 2000, Tiffany D'Virgilio (Nick's wife) was asked -at the THOUGHTS mailing list- how did Kevin Gilbert and his husband meet.

She told us the story of them meeting in 1993, and partying for Nick's birthday party some days later. She said she had pictures to document this, and would put them up on the web if there was enough interest - and of course there was!

Tiff had the pictures scanned (thanks to Jay Dyson for doing the job) and sent them over to Miguel Farah, who had offered to webhost them.

Here they are. The comments you see are Tiff's (click on each picture to see a humongous 300 dpi version of it):

This one cracks me up.  Neal's face is obscured by a cymbal, but the full 'Neal' pose.  Notice Kevin *plastered* on the side.

Now they're both wasted.

4 A.M. - Nick and Kevin cracking up -- lying on the kitchen floor being licked by our dog.  That's me posing in Kevin's boots.  What a party!

Can you even imagine the hangovers?  We all slept in and ate waffles afterward.  This was Nick's 26th birthday party: a total surprise, and I pulled it off with 50 people and a band!
