buon natale!

so, our party, it was teh awesome. and you know what? it was FILLED WITH BLOGGERS and it was still totally awesome. in fact, it was made even more awesome by that fact. we have crossed some sort of bizarro line, my friends, when bloggers are advertised instead of shunned at a social gathering.

i met many lovely people that i hadn't had the chance to before, and i don't want to list them here, because i will definitely leave somebody out and then feel terrible about it, but you know who you are all and you are all internet sugar and spice, like the governess writes (and no pirate eye, lady! you look lovely i promise especially your hair of which i was v. envious). i stopped being surprised a long time ago at how much i like people in person whose internet personalities i like. that sentence did not make sense but you know what i mean.

the hot chocolate and the egg nog were big old hits (a ratio of one cup whole milk to 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted in a big old pan, and doctored with as much amaretto or creme de menthe as your guests like, is especially yummy, and jeff swears by the joy of cooking egg nog recipe and it was delicious). unfortunately i didn't take as many photos as i would have hoped (if you took some please leave the link in the comments!), but those i did take are here, including some awesome pictures of kriston and charles dueting it up on some terribly maudlin love song. i would like to take this chance to say that tommy's and my rendition of "i've had the time of my life" was probably some of the most painful 5-6 minutes in the entire history of karaoke. my apologies, friends.

today will be spent recovering, maybe making lemon bars, and then probably humiliating myself in front of kevin drum. onwards!

UPDATE: Changed the Flickr link so Tommy's photos show up, too.


It was indeed a great party! I actually really enjoyed your song stylings :) Thanks for having me!
Your appartment is awesome by the way.

Based on this picture, I demand that Kriston grow muttonchops.

Real ones, not the muttonchop-spurs he's got now.

I had a HECK of a lot of fun. I took my shoes off and walked barefoot in the street after.

i'm sad to see i left before karaoke, but i would have fallen asleep while singing britney spears or something... i took just a few photos.

oh man, karaoke. We could have torn up some wicked duets.

Thanks again for the invite, it was a blast. If you are seeing any good shows before heading back to Chi-town, let us know.
