No rum was confiscated in the making of this gnome....(*hic*) ;)
So, Token, there's a chance that I may be the "skinny, long-haired gal" with the gnome that you saw. I'd be one of many. Did you see Gnome Camp? And here I thought I'd be the only one doing that this year....
I was taking pics of my boyfriend's gnome for him as a surprise - he was involved the the making of 'Amelie' and has never been to BM.
It is probably another lady who escorted you home, Emotion sickness - I believe rum was meant to be shared, not confiscated. :)
