Halloween - Part 2  
Saturday, I got some work done around the house before getting ready for the party. I organized/cleaned a variety of things and started cleaning the laundry room. I *thought* I was almost done when I quit for the night, but that was a damned lie and a story for another night.

Anyway, I waited until iarroganti  and teffan  were en route, then got back into the Lady Luck costume. When they hit town, we had a quick dinner and then headed out to the Kegslayers' for their Vegas themed party. (This was the reason I had a Lady Luck costume in the first place. I had hoped to go to the Resort party as one of the Crow Girls from Charles de Lint's Newford novels, but ego_id_non_feci  had a family thing pop up and was not able to go after all. One Crow Girl would just have been sad...) Anyway, the party was OK, again a little subdued, but fun. Possibly one of the more amusing parts of the night was when a room became a "girl's room" and one of the visitors from out East had a brilliant moment of inspiration about male/female interactions, but it's not really repeatable in polite company. :P No less true, just not really printable. *grin* After the party, we all came back to my place for some custard and went to bed at a reasonable-ish hour.

Of course, my neighbors were up at an entirely unreasonable hour - I was doing my best to ignore the chain saw noises, but the sound of screeching metal was finally enough to make me go investigate. Idiots were apparently cutting up an entire cord of wood at 9AM on a Sunday. Grrrreat. I didn't have my contacts in, so I didn't see what they had hit with the trailer, but it was not my car, so I went back to bed. I sort of want to leave them a nasty note, but I sort of think coming "caroling" at 3AM some Tuesday morning might be somewhat more appropriate.

Once Sunday reached a more acceptable hour,iarroganti ,teffan , and I went out to lunch at Ella's Deli. Sadly, no kugel. We did find out what a boolkie is, though. (A vaguely breast-shaped roll, for those of you who are curious.) After lunch, the food coma started to set in, but teffan  insisted on hitting the road. I submitted however, and the rest of the evening was spent in a nap,various phone calls, email, baronial official work, homework, General Meeting, a Trader Joes stop, more work on the laundry room (*shudder*) , and now quick LJing before a shower and bed. So ready for bed! Good night!

Did something happen to the laundry room overnight?

Ugh. I'll talk about it when I'm done dealing with it... It didn't happen overnight, but I found the problem this afternoon. :/

Ahhh. I thought I heard something in there, but then heard the birdies and figured it was just them I'd heard the first time.

I'd be interested in hearing the insight into male-female interactions, if it's approved for male audiences.

Me, too, but on the other side.

Okay, the anonymous one is me. ::sigh::

See me at practice. It's not TOO naughty... just my momma reads this sometimes!

It just keeps coming back to the breasts, doesn't it... :-)

Apparently... ;)

Although, really, it's hard to complain. I mean...breasts. Y'know?

Personally, I don't really have the same fascination. I think it looses some of the appeal when you are issued your own set 24/7. ;)
Uncle Mikeybelmikey on November 4th, 2008 01:54 am (UTC)
Trust me on this one, then :-)

;) Will do.
