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."

Just then, the door burst open to admit Jason Menayan, Maddie Ruud, and Simone Smith. "Are we too early?" they chorused.

"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!"

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.

Just ducky!

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!"

Which one of this week's Pets and Animals nominees is your favorite?

  • 54% Creatures at my Door
  • 5% Our Cheeky House Rabbit
  • 5% Barney: The Un-trainable Doggie
  • 14% From the Show Ring to the Cattle Pen.

  • 8% Should You Get a Dog?

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!
