Trent Hanging

I think

that this may have been the most relaxed Christmas ever.

I didn't have to deal with family gatherings, small children (don't get me wrong, I love my cousins dearly, but sometimes...oof), family drama, etc. However, I also didn't get to see my family, but that's ok, I think I'll survive. :)

I showed up early to Char's to help cook and set up for VegXmas '05 and we joked around whilst cooking. Then we got into the vodka. I made a faux Sex on the Beach with raspberry vodka, peach schnapps and oj. It was tres yummy. I made Char's a little strong, so I let her make the rest of her drinks. Hey, I'm heavy handed, what can I say?

benlinus showed up first and made himself his own little drink while Char finished the last few dishes. There was only room enough for one person to cook at a time. I had a little bit of cookie while I waited for food to be done. If I daresay it, I think the vegan cookies I made turned out better now that I've tweaked the recipe a little further. Maple syrup and nutmeg = teh good. Then jemesuisperdue showed up and dinner was almost ready. Char's neighbor also made an appearance and brought some goat chevre which was fantastic. Yum!

We stuffed ourselves and played a few games until footnotefetish arrived. Then we pouted that he was there. Just kidding! We continued on the board game voyage and chatted until about 9 or so. I helped Char clean up and had a cup of tea to wind down the rest of the evening. Tres fabulous.

OK guys and dolls. New Years Eve, my place. I'm locking the post so weirdos (besides you guys) start dropping by unannounced or start peeping in my windows or something.
(edit: I realized that not everyone who is invited is on my flist, so it's unlocked now.)
It's 1901 N Wilmot Rd #1242 Bldg 26.

Let me draw a map of how to get to the actual building. I'm assuming you all know how to use mapquest. :)Collapse )

Anyways, if you party people wanna show up anytime after 6 p.m., that works for me. There will be food, please feel free to bring more. I'll have a limited supply of margaritas, so BYOB of your choosing. Smoking is on the patio, but I think we may be able to be History Channel friendly somewhere indoors (don't wanna shock the neighbors too too much). Feel free to bring any board games that you might want to play or some music you want to show off (however, I reserve the right to veto. Especially The Eagles.)

Now, the big news: A no kissing policy has been instituted. I know, I know, but most of us are single and this way there is no pressure. Feel free to go out the front door if you must indulge you and your significant other.

Now, the responsible adult stuff. If you need a ride home, jemesuisperdue has offered to be a DD for some of you. If you would rather just drop where you fall, I should have an air mattress or two. I have plenty of floor space, a queen sized bed and a love seat. Bring your own pillows and I have limited sheet availability.

I think that about covers it.
