Lordy, so many people came by last night .... Mr. and Mrs. irrationalrobot (with jugs of beer from the Big Time Brewery) velo_ale, kafuela, tonyawinter, wingedelf, jadine, vulture23, corvuscrx, butterflake moriae, poh, geothermal, anansi133 ... and yet LJ did not come up in conversation until the end of the night! Also present were those strange non-LJ types ... Mike "SpamHell" and Ivana, Cathy, Dug (I'm so pissed that I didn't get to visit with him while he was here, I'll have to schedule something with him now), John "from work" (who lives very near by) plus two guests, Topher Rao and his brother in law, Bryan and Christine (from the White Elephant party), Suzanne (shadowdaddy's "work wife") and Paul, and ... holy cow, my brain is melting down. We got most of the way through the 6 foot (4 meat, 2 veggie) sub, the light beer was polished off, Ticket to Ride, Carcasonne, Cities and Knights of Catan, Puerto Rico, Power Grid, and Chrononauts were all played ... yeah, 'nuff said, it went from 7 until 1:30 AM and I was right beat by the end of the night.
Right now we're heading over to Cathy's for a post-New Year's brunch, and I've got to get my eyeballs in and head out, 'cause I am one hungry girl. Voice lessons and Pilates have all been cancelled for today, and we'll see how my energy levels are looking before I commit to anything else.
PS: Was being teased about my LJ addiction last night (well, I did update DURING the party), and responded that really all I'm doing is trying to reach out and feel people out there ... but I had plenty of people right HERE last night and I still hit the blog! I'm bad. Good thing CrackJournal is not on the list of controlled substances yet.
