Proud to be a Merkin

Congrats to John (squalidbear) on his US citizenship! Now he can help us vote the bastards out!

We attended a lovely surprise party to celebrate this event, and the White Trash theme was of course a natural for us. We just came as we were. When Chuck (sgtchuck) started up the plastic champagne fountain, I exclaimed, "It's just like one of my family weddings!" Except at the last one we had two fountains--one of whiskey sours and one of screwdrivers. There was dancing on the tabletops.

Steve (rootbeer1) had made a lovely tater-tot casserole to bring along, but I had tee martoonies, so by the time I bellied up to the buffet the casserole was all gone. I did eat my fill of lovely mac and cheese catered by Blue, though. It was great seeing so many of our friends in one place for a change, and especially nice seeing Donovan (bigreddee) and Gary (fuzzygruf) out and about with their crutches and all. And the view from the apartment on high of the City in the rosy sunset, while sipping cocktails and chatting--one of those magical San Francisco moments. We so love living here.

I really can't drink martinis like I used to anymore--I was pretty well snockered by the time we left. And Mommy was a little hung this morning. I'm telecommuting today, so at least I didn't have to face the commute. I've already got my batch HTTP/XML interface working---I'm not exactly a Perl expert, but it's like riding a bike--you never forget how. Woohoo! And Steve's making tater-tot casserole for lunch just for me!!!! Life is good.

T'was lovely to see you! I was a bit tipsy. Could you tell? Perhaps something to do with the two bottles of J at the Fairmont, the bottle of Moet at the Top of the Mark, the bottle of Moet at home, the three beers at the Edge and then drinkies at the surprise party.

Chuck reminded me that when I saw that plastic fountain at Smart & Final, I exclaimed, "Good Lord! That thing is hideous!", so of course he went back to get it.

It's a shame we couldn't make it -- sounds like excessor's kind of party....

I want one. I was especially mesmerized by the colored lights in the base. Adds that special something.

He's packed it all back into it's little box, I'll ask him if he intends to keep it or whether we can re-gift it :)

Jeffrey Glover mixed my second one. He almost put sweet vermouth in it---quelle horreur!

When the alarm went off at 06:20, the thought of getting up was repugnant.

You Minnesotans are big on the hot dish, I know. We got the recipe from Jeff and Philip long ago....

The one he made for lunch was delectable, and we're having the leftovers for dinner!!!

You live with Steve. You can have his tater tots whenever you want.

"Mommie was a little hung ..."

Oh, dear. :)

Look forward to a martooni or whatever soon!
