Hey Warriors! Come out to Partay!

So, as you can see, there was a party going on at my house this weekend. Lots of people (the biggest crowd yet for one of my shindigs), lots and lots of good food, and enough stuff going on to make us forget that it was all about saying goodbye to Spec as he prepares to head off for New York City in a few weeks. I am glad that everyone came and I hope they all had a good time. Some people had to come and go, but it was a nice event. Spec made it even more special by letting us watch what is surely one of the worst movies of all time, The Warriors. I didn't get to see it all, but I saw enough to know that I don't think I'll ever need to see it again.

In other news, the new Harry Potter book arrived on my doorstep yesterday afternoon before the party began. I haven't read a third of it yet, but I am already surprised by a few of the plot developments and I have a very firm belief of what happens. Stay tuned for more vague references as time goes on.

Tegan is probably going to spend several hours at the office this afternoon, so I'll be keeping up with the kids. Maybe I'll read a bit (and ignore work until this evening) while naps are being taken.
Yeah. It was a good party, even though this rather scattered and disjointed post doesn't do any justice to all of the fun and good humor that was displayed by all involved.

(8:43pm) Wow! Looking back on this very crappy post that I wrote, you wouldn't have any idea that anyone had a good time. Did I mention the cool water balloons that Jack T. and Cordelia brought? Did I mention how poor Raisinette got doused by (at least) two water balloons and that the rest of us managed only to get our feet wet when the balloons broke? Oh, and did I mention that I stupidly threw an errant water balloon that broke near Spec's iPod and Bose speakers or that Raisinette's less than two week old iPod also got caught in the water balloon crossfire? Why they are speaking to me is only a function of the fact that I didn't (apparently) damage their machinery.

I also didn't mention that the grilling of the food was marred by a very strong storm that blew threw halfway through the cooking time? All the rest of the party crew retreated inside but only the brave and resourceful Anthony remained outside to keep me company while I cooked thr remaining Boca burgers and chik'n patties? He is quite a nice kid (and even allowing for the fact that he might have been on his best behavior while visiting a stranger's house--and how many ten-year-olds do THAT these days?--he is a nice boy.

All in all, it was good. I hope Spec felt loved.

Now, I've got to try and convince myself that preparing work materials is more important than reading one hundred more pages of HP and the H-bP.

Thanks for the party Burb! I had a good time (maybe too good). Check out a few more pictures from the event here.

Whoa! It just registered with me that you have posted a link within a comment.

I didn't think that was possible. How did you do it?
