More to come after the break. These were the final standings of the New York All-Caps League, by the way:
Hopefully Beijing's league will be as successful.
And now we bid adieu until after the New Year.

We'll have a tribute video up in the coming days, but for now these pictures of Barbie's going-away party will have to suffice. Also, Kevin's got a post up on his blog, and if you don't believe he and Therese were the most impressively dressed on the night (though Sandy and Baby Girl were impressive in their own way), go read what he had to do get ready
Pink Party 2009!
It was also Liz's last night in Beijing.
Lots of debauchery we can't write about in this space.

Lauren's going-away party this Saturday will be 2009's pink party. Last year it was to honor Reid and Julia, and this time it will be for someone who's been in Beijing even longer. It's gonna be a bittersweet night.

Ken, the man on the right in the pic above, seen with his girlfriend Steph and Jim on Friday night, has departed for South Carolina.
It's this blog's opinion that nothing good ever happens in South Carolina, but Ken's gone to finish some important and worthwhile work, and when he returns it might be for good.
Until then, godspeed.
Saturday was Adam's housewarming / Nicki Fung's birthday party at Adam's apartment near Chaoyang Park. Lots of people went, and at least one girl showed up wasted beyond recognition, resulting in hilarity and embarrassment. Afterwards some people went to Fu Bar, which just may become Beijing Ultimate's new classy hangout, as opposed to Chocolate, which will always be our sordid hangout / exactly where we're gonna end up this Saturday after Lauren's going-away pink party, because there's only one good way to send someone off: with naked dancers and vodka. Can't wait.
...to drink in the United States. Happy birthday, Liz! You have made Jim very happy.
After the Korean BBQ dinner in the Wu we went a few blocks down the street to D-22, where Jeff and Kevin's band, Autobots, Deploy!, played in front of a lively crowd. Videos to come later, but first:
And then we ended up in Propaganda until 5 a.m. What happens in Propaganda, especially past midnight, stays in Propaganda, such as Jeff hooking up with two college girls who may or may not have been 17*. *This may or may not be a flat-out lie.
But -- hey, look! -- Jim had fun.

A tie! Zahlen, in the post titled, Barbie's Imminent Going-Away Party: The Legacy of Pink, Dec. 12:
One time when I was out of town, Doc broke into my house and stole ALL my pink clothing.
I returned to Beijing late on a (Pink Shirt) Friday night, and went from airport to home and direct to the bars. I had acquired a few new PSF shirts while in the states, so I didn't miss a beat. Doc was flabberghasted when he saw me show up in a pink shirt. I was doubly flabberghasted when I went to grab another pink shirt the next PSFriday and found that my wardrobe had shrunk considerably.
True story, real people.
And me, replying to Alicia's post, Wednesday night Frisbee - BCIS from 7 - 9pm!!!
Jizz! Jizz! Jizz! OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD THERE IS JIZZ EVERYWHERE!!!
BCIS is awesome. I was really excited.
