Don't touch that squirrel's nuts.

Seeing as I spent the majority of today recovering from last night's festivities and randomly recalling funny things that happened/were said (Adam - you,me,lunch Fridays,book it!), it makes sense that I'm wound up like the energizer bunny, with sleep only something I will desire more of when I wake up tomorrow, running significantly short on it. Adam took many pictures and was kind enough to post them on his site. He's not in any of them - how did that happen?

So, the festivities...my friends Adam, Karem, Irving and Alana came over for a potluck bbq yesterday and we drank, and we ate, and we drank some more. The menu was truly fabulous:

Scott's famous margaritas
Jalapeno Havarti and Salmon Mouse
Flatbreads and dip
Kabobs & Garlic Shrimp
Grilled asparagus, zucchini, pineapple
Homemade potato salad
Tiramisu (with seven year old rum!)

Scott delivered big time with his margaritas and grilling expertise. His timing was impeccable as the first rain in 2 weeks came pouring down just as he finished grilling the pineapple (who knew it would be so yummy?). It was a fun evening and a good mix of people (I love it when a plan comes together). The six empty bottles of wine in my recycling bin might explain why my head was pounding this morning (I figure I was lucky that I managed to get myself into bed). The fact that pretty much every dish in my house was dirty also attests to the excellent food that was shared. I think that Karem and Irving are next to host, and once Lulu is moved into her new place, we'll pressure her into having us over to her fancy new abode for a party.

Since Scott and I were hosting yesterday we weren't able to go to Raye's goodbye picnic, but we did make plans to go see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with her tonight. Raye has seen just about every movie out there, and she was the perfect person to see it with. I felt like a little kid, who is old enough to get all the inside jokes. I'm not sure what the best part was, but I did like the squirrels, puppet burn unit and Oompa-Loompa musical sequences. I trust Raye will provide a review that will do it justice, I just like the nut jokes.

  2. I heard! She may be bitter now, but she'll be happy when she doesn't have to haul all that stuff up to her new place. Next time!
