Saturday Night (HubNuggets) Disco Forever Fever
ripplemaker gazed contentedly about the clubhouse, smiling happily. Everything was perfect - the checker-board, light-up floor; the chains of rope-lights trimming the booths; the mirror ball suspended over the dance floor - every disco-perfect detail was ready for the team to arrive for her Saturday Night Fever themed party.
"... and what better way to celebrate our latest crop of HubNugget hubs?" she thought. "Everyone is crazy with spring fever and this "fever" party will be just the thing to blow off some steam and get things rolling for a new season of HubNugget hunting."
"Not at all," replied ripplemaker, flipping the switch on the mirror ball. It began to revolve, slowly at first, then more quickly, sending bright-colored shards of light coruscating across the room, like galaxies of tiny stars, weaving and dancing in time to the pulsing music.
Everyone looks so toned...
Much to everyone's delight, Maddie, Jason and Simone had prepared a wonderfully retro dance routine. Dressed in full disco-duds, they performed an energetic 70s-style dance-workout number while lip-synching to Olivia Newton-John's monster disco hit, "Physical."
ripplemaker clapped her hands. "How absolutely perfect," she cried. "What a fabulous lead in to introducing the nominees in the Sports & Recreation category!"

- Girls Watching Football With Guys
I love football. I was raised in a small town in East Texas, and if you know anything about Texas, you know that we Texans love our football. On Friday nights of out-of-town games, the local Dairy Queen sign would say, "Whoever leaves Sulphur...
Great troupers, all...
No sooner had the cheering stopped when Patty Inglish MS, and ladyjane1 stepped up. "We have a real treat for you," said Patty. "We've been rehearsing all week with our special guest stars, B.T.Evilpants and ProCW, former HubNuggets team members, to bring you our version of ABBA's hit from the 1970's "Super Trouper."
"We even found these great ABBA look-alike disco-duds - don't we look just like them?" asked ladyjane1.
"I can't think of a better way to pay tribute to all the stellar artist and writer "super troupers" on HubPages - especially the nominees in the Arts & Design category," ripplemaker replied.
Enelle Lamb and RedElf were already waiting in the wings, and, as the applause for the last number died down, they quickly pushed KoffeeKlatch Gals into the middle of the floor. All three were wearing cool, 70s-style white suits with platform shoes.
"But why are you wearing those cute birdie beaks?" asked ripplemaker.
Striking "John Travolta" poses, all three replied, "In honor of the nominees in our next category, Pets & Animals, we proudly bring you.... "Disco Duck!"

The Pets and Animals Nominees
- Creatures at my Door
As an apartment dweller, it's easy to feel disconnected from nature. I feed birds and stray cats and in doing so, attract creatures to my windows. I get SO much pleasure from watching and helping one creature at a time.
- Barney: The Un-trainable Doggie
Training some dogs is easy, almost like a dream. And then there's Barney. When attempting to train him, the only training that occurs is when he trains you. A doggie that marches to his own beat, Barney's story (and his mug!) will leave you rolling o
- From the Show Ring to the Cattle Pen.
It takes a special type of person to show horses. The type that know what it looks outside just before the sun rises; the type who know that all their hard work will either pay off in trophies and blue ribbons or be thrown in their face depending...
- The Bird Called Raven
A non-fictional piece by Deb Hirt with some of her experiences with ravens in Maine. It also includes some general facts about them.
Once everyone had read and voted in all the categories, the party really began to rock out. Disco fever swept the HubNuggets team into retro heaven, where they happily danced the rest of the night away.
The team will be back on the job next week, busy searching out top examples of new-to-HubPages writers' work to nominate in that week's featured categories.
In the meantime though... disco lives!
