I’m finally recovered from Loki’s Birthday Weekend of Much Awesomeness, thank the gods. It was touch-and-go there for a while.
Friday night we had some pretty good Thai at the Thai Elephant downtown, then saw Margaret Cho, who was filthy. Also hilarious. Also, Dot, Tom, Loki and I were, like, two of four hetero couples in the audience. Pretty amusing.
After, we dashed back to Tempe for the Ego Likeness/Voltaire show, which was pretty good. I wish we’d seen more Ego Likeness, though; it was my first time seeing them live, and I thought they pulled off the two-people-onstage thing pretty well.
Saturday I did a couple hours of prep for Loki’s shared birthday party with Ryan, then we went to Home Depot, where I took Loki to the tool department and said “Choose!” He picked a table saw and a compound miter saw, and now wants to build everything. Totally can’t wait to get into the new house* and start some serious woodworking.
We also got Ryan a ladder, which caused a sensation during the Presents portion of the night’s festivities. Note to world: gift-wrapped six-foot stepladders are a recipe for much hilarity. Highly recommended.
So in the fullness of time, people started turning up for the party, and soon we had a houseful, which was nice. If you somehow missed your invitation, that’s my fault. My address book is borked. I’ll make it up to you, promise.
Anyway. It was a party. Silly things were said, drinks were had, food was eaten. As usual, we had too much, but that always disturbs me much less than not having enough.
Sunday we spent doing some halfhearted cleaning, but mostly we lazed around. It was lovely.
And so ends the Ridiculously Long Update. I swear I’m going to start posting more so I don’t feel compelled to do several days’ worth of entries in one go. One more resolution to break!
* Whichever one it turns out to be. Nope, we still don’t know. Another week or so to go!
