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.
