The show started when Mary Messhausen took the stage – wrapped in bows. As it was the birthday of dj das hussy, we had a cake in shape of a vinyl record for our fav lezzie. Of course the cake was vegan.
Then, the Gentlelady Regina opened with her hawt buttered version of the Fiona Apple song Hot Knife.
Sunday, last party night in Berlin at Berghain Kantine. ND’s birthday with a very special tequila bar by Conny and Zu from Amsterdam. After having been to crazy parties for 3 nights before, Sunday was almost impossible… But the tequila brought back our energy.
Monday morning was also the end of Girlscamp Berlin. Mary Messhausen, Toffi, Prancey Girl and myself had rented an apartment together. More on that later. For now, enjoy the pictures below, more after the jump. Even more on flickr.
My dear friend Mary left Germany a week ago and now I make this disturbing discovery. She hadn’t told me about it, because she knows I love long hair. Always have. Now, you tell me, who rocked the Lanvin sunglasses better: Mary Messhausen with short or long hair?
What would the animal series be without Mary’s favourites? So without further ado, the first blog entry by Mary Messhausen:
Growing up as a little girl in an alternative universe (Newfoundland), I used to gaze out of my frosty window to the cliff across the pond. One day I noticed little creatures fluttering about. I thought they were fairies, so I decided to have a closer look. When I reached the top of the cliff, I was surrounded by hundreds of little flying mini penguins… also known as the puffin.
The puffin stands at about 30 cm (1 foot) tall and I have a weak spot for them because they have bright clown coloured faces, their tiny flappy wings bring them all over the world and year after year they return home and breed in the same hole.
Fast forward to when I was 16. I went back to the motherland aka The Philippines. One night I was asleep in my family home when I awoke to the sound of a bird like twill. Curious to see where the sound was coming from, I strolled through the Chocolate Hills and ventured into the forest. With my trusty flashlight, I quickly found the source of this mysterious sound. High in the treetops I spotted the Mawmag, known locally as the Koboldmaki or Philippine Tarsier.
As it looked down upon me with its enormous eyes, I figured that it could fit in the palm of my hand. It was really the cutest animal I had seen since my brush with the puffin. I always wanted the people here to see this sleepy and shy monkey, so I’m going back in February to bring a bunch home to live with me in my cozy new shack.
That being said, I’m delighted to introduce you to the two animal spirits of Mary.
Went to a Karaoke bar on Saturday night with Margot, Kevin, Mary and Uwe. We rented a private room. The room had black light, wallpaper with blue skies and fluffy white clouds. Mary and I did secret shots every time we got drinks for all. The bartender asked us if we wanted harsh or light shots. Mary said: “Harsh with fruity undertones”, on which he only rolled his eyes. We went with harsh.
Mary Messhausen and I needed some time off. So when our gingerheaded photographer friend Kyle offered to take us to his cottage right by the water, it sounded like the perfect opportunity to leave the busy city behind.
When we arrived at the cabin we found that run-down raft laying by the lakeside. In a heartbeat we hopped on the makeshift vessel. After the first excitement wound down and the fishing was done, we totally chilled out on the raft. So chilled out that we fell asleep.
After what must have been at least an hour we woke up and could barely see the coast. We felt like the biggest gaytards ever.
