Saddleshoos and crew made our way to “Abuzz for Obama” in the Elmwood section of Berkeley on Friday night. “Abuzz for Obama” was this year’s theme for an annual shrine to candy corn at the home of a prominent academic/artist/activist couple.
As we walked up to the house we were greeted by an extravaganza of candycorn lights, and the whirring of a genny. It was a sight to be seen. I was so caught up taking pictures that I actually walked right by a guy standing in the shadows, waved hi, and said, “we’ll be right in!” before realizing that it was a cardboard cut out of Obama. Everyone got a big kick out of that one.
Squint to read the name on the mailbox:
Everyone who is anyone in Berkeley was there. Guests all received gift bags with various candycorn accessories, obama pins, and a handheld fan with an LED message programmed to read: OBAMA 2008, BERKELEY IS FOR OBAMA 2008, ABUZZ FOR OBAMA, etc. with alternating messages:
The grand finale was the Obama cake, which measured in a conservative estimate at least 3 feet in diameter. Check it out below.
There were some aliens from Uranus there who led us all in a big long prayer for Obama. Many present left the following morning for Nevada to let the people there know what’s up. On this election eve, may all of our prayers be with Obama and all of us who support him. Yes we can.
