"A tomorrow theme lets your imagination take over. What will the future be like? Imagine it, then have fun putting your tomorrow party together. The future theme lets you try daring new recipes..."
"To add to the merriment, asks guests to come dressed in their interpretation of styles of the future."
[continued] "There are many ways to entertain your guests or let them entertain themselves using the "tomorrow" theme. Project the future of each guest or have each one write a story of what life will be like in the 21st century. Science fiction buffs could bring a favorite book and retell the tale or read special passages aloud._____________________
... The feeling is one of space and definitely of time to come."
On our way back from walking around the lake today, bink and I passed a garage sale, where I pulled the 1969 Guide to Entertaining out of a pile of moldering books. I forked over a whole quarter for it.
Of course I was thinking of this Star Trek/1960s Design project as I flipped through it, walking on. But it was bink who got all excited, looking over my shoulder, when she saw the deviled eggs. She pointed out their design similarity to Spock's IDIC (Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combination), which he wears in the episode "Is There in Truth no Beauty?" (1968). And once again I prevailed upon her knowledge of tomorrow's technology today and asked her to scan it in and photoshop out the ugly broiled Bacon-wrapped Shrimp and hot Peppy Beef Dip, leaving only the Olive-stuffed Eggs and sharp cheese.
