Happy New Year

I thought we'd be sent home early from work, but nooo...I left my usual time. Came home and made hors d'ouevres for Jeff (glovercom) and Philip and John's White Trash bash. Great party as usual, with a few LJers (rootbeer1, fuzzygruf, chriskomater) and many other old friends and new. Let's see, there were the asparagus-in-Wonder-bread rolls I made, dates wrapped in bacon, Tater Tot casserole, taco pie, Kitty Litter cake served in a real cat box with a plastic shovel, lil smokies in blankets, olive loaf and Velveeta canapes, and many other tasty trashy snax. The decor was the usual--dirty laundry, tacky pinatas, and a fully decorated Xmas tree flung down the front stairs.

We left around 9:30 for John (keanubear) and Greg's party. There we saw armaroundyou, ultrabithorax, progbear and lots of other great guys. Food not as trashy, but we did pull poppers (not that kind) and lit sparklers at midnight. Their apartment has an incredible panoramic view of the City, and I could watch the fireworks down on the Embarcadero from the living room sofa.

Chris gave Steve and I a lift home (only a few blocks, but the rains had begun). We just fell into bed. Last night and most of this morning it was raining heavily, and there's a little leak in Steve's study. We'll have to call the roofers tomorrow--it's still under warranty. Tonight, we've having armaroundyou, bowlerbehrsf, and last_gentleman over for a traditional southern New Year's Day dinner--fried chicken, black-eyed peas, greens, and cornbread with sausage.

Sounds like you guys had a great NYE! I hope you and Steve have a terrific 2004!

PS - Good luck with the roof--hope it's an easy fix.

Thanks, Dan, same to you and Dennis--especially on the job front.

The roof is only three years old, so it shouldn't be leaking, but I noticed the other day after the last storm that our neighbors had the roofers over. It's only in one spot, too, so hopefully it's just a little breach that can be repaired easily.

BTW, the realtor we used to buy our house has started his own company. He's a broker, and while most of his salespeople are in SF, he does have one in Palm Springs. Perhaps he'd be interested in a Long Beach rep--he lived there for a while. His name is David Manduca, and his website is here.

Thanks, Jack.

Ironically, I remember seeing David Manduca in AOL chatrooms a couple of years ago during the rare times I'd jumped in them. Of course, this was before I was a RE agent! I'll keep the idea in mind if I wind up without a broker to hold my license. Thanks!
