Hello, I am a 31 s/f living in the Southern Appalachians (Virginia). I'm trying to plan a dark, Victorian-themed dinner party for Walpurgisnacht (April 28th). I'd love some soundtrack suggestions actually. I'll probably make a roast and a trifle. I definitely want to serve rack punch. I have to blame Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain for putting the idea in my head.

I'll probably have a time making a 1980's condo "darq", but I do have a huge red hurricane and some brass candlesticks. The makings of a good centerpiece I think.

I'm also having the worst time filling out the guest list. I just want to have 8 or nine people over, so it's nothing huge. I also need an extrovert, a "sparkling wit" who will help smooth things socially. This is actually harder to come by than you'd think. I thought I found my "wit", but I soon figured that he'd probably do a lot more to aggravate a meltdown than to help prevent one. The search goes on...

So far I've read Virginia Woolf's Orlando. Now I'm reading Michael Faber's The Crimson Petal and the White, a story about prostitute named Sugar in the 1880's.
