For many people this year sucked. I can't say the same.
Allison and Amanda checked out books in my library to start the night off.
Stacy looked at pictures on her camera rather than look at books. Kidding. In fact, I think she liked that book.
Sweet Melissa was wondering what it would be like to have the foot of a Transistor Sect while choosing a new book.
I have too many books. I can't read them faster than I buy them, so I need to stop and catch up. I am in the middle of a "book spending freeze." (Unless the book is really good!)
We had some Soy Egg-Nog...
And did a good ol' CHEERS! photo...
Then we ate the pizza that Stacy, Chrissy, and Deanna whipped up... Delicious.
Stacy shot this while I had food in my mouth after grumbling, "No photos, too busy eating."
Then we had a wonderful peach crisp for desert. See Stacy holding it up.
Whoops! I grabbed Stacy for the photo instead of Deanna!
Young Kevin showed up and made me very happy. Although we were about to play the board-game Cranium, wich in the past I thought he enjoyed, but he revealed that in fact he HATES the game. Sorry for the bummer Kevs!
There he is playing! You can see him burning up inside!
Grif was a great addition to cranium.
He was trying to draw a "Lifegaurd" but his team didn't get it. They need time to learn to appreciate L. Kincade.
There was a tray of vegan sweets for all to enjoy...
Inevitably, we went outside and payed homage to the HB park bar.
Petting it, and then ragaling each other with stories of the doomed park that was such a part of our lives.
Christine and Stacy, best buds.
Sweet Melissa and Stacy, best buds too.
The girls warmed themselves by the fire.
Then the alcohol started to kick in and things started getting weird...
The famous sword-dildo was busted out, much to Amber's delight. She had not seen such an ingenius tool, and was very interested in learning more about it.
I gave her a complete run-down of its finer points.
Stay tuned for part 2 tomorrow - as the night takes stranger turns...
Bonus Link: Randy Laybourne has a show coming up
