One Night. Seven Deadly Sins.
As 7 o’clock on Saturday rolled around, 777 of UQ’s finest gents and gentlewomen descended through the doors of Moda Portside to the fiery pits of hell– only kidding, the ball wasn’t quite that sinful. Though indeed, all of the attendees looked mighty lust-worthy. Special mentions of course, going to those sporting devil ears, hot pink bow ties, bright yellow suits and who could forget, “Adam and Eve” in those nude morph suits. These certainly left many feeling green with envy. Well, okay, maybe not that many. In any case, it’s fair to say that the glutton in all of us was ignited by the generous offering of mouth-watering treats and refreshments on hand. Though these calories were quickly burnt off on the dance-floor where our DJ and two bands (Gigi & Rory and Kant the Philosopher) providing an endless supply of fist-pumping beats. Highlights include the slow dance, where many were spotted swallowing their pride to ask their law-school crush for a boogie, and of course the song Teenage Dirtbag, which played once, twice – maybe three times? In any case, a retreat to the Sloth zone was warmly welcomed where our guests could drink some water, take a breather and lounge on the scattered illuminated furniture and beanbags. Meanwhile over on the balcony, other guests were having their mind-boggled by the, er, mind-boggling tricks of the roving magician. To this day, I ask myself, how did my $10 note end up inside a lemon? Why did the magician have a lemon in his suit pocket? Where is my $10 note now?
