party review [Oct. 22nd, 2003|08:05 am]
Just me.
[mood |rained upon]

-- Having a party at 4pm on a Sunday ROCKS. Everyone is pretty much there by dinner time, you share food, drink and gelato, and by 10:30 or 11, everyone is gone and you still have enough time left in the evening to watch Ringu.*

-- The weather was perfect- dry, temperate, and allowed us to both hot tub AND barbeque (no, not at the same time). The moment the last guest left at 10:30 or so, it started to rain, and then it rained ALL day Monday, setting even-for-Seattle-this-is-wet records. So we really lucked out rain wise.

-- Everyone we know apparently grocery shops at either Trader Joe's or PCC. However, we had wine left over that WASN'T "two-buck Chuck**", plus a nice port and bottle of champagne.

--I have now had a party that one of the guests brought an almost-three-year-old to. The kid was well behaved and his parents were attentive and all, so it was no big deal, except for the whole "oh-my-god-people-who-are-my-peers-have-children" realization. There is also that tiny bit of shame in knowing that there was nothing going on at the party that would have permanently freaked out a toddler, but I will attribute that to the early hour of the party and not some you-are-now-an-old-and-boring-homeowner problem attributable to me.

--There are way too many varieties of "Pocky".

*Didn't like it as much as The Ring, except the part when the girl came out of the TV set was a bit creepier than in the American version. Plus, the ex-husband in Ringu didn't resemble David Arquette, so that was a bonus.

**Trader Joe's house wine, "Charles Shaw", sells for $1.99 in CA (and OR, I think), thus the name. It's $2.99 here in WA, (How much is it in the rest of the country?)so I have no idea why we don't call it "3 buck Chuck", but there you go. And yes, it's actually okay wine- not great, but at least on par with a $4.99 or $5.99 bottle of cheap wine.

cat in the cat?

>>Also, your cat is cute. Just sayin's all.

My cat, or my hat (in the picture)?. I'm not disbelieving that my cat is cute (because she certainly is), but I'm trying to sequiter that from my post and am failing...
