If visitors could just keep the noise down...... Sanescientist is feeling a little delicate.
Last night's party was a success. At one point, I managed to squeeze 12 guests into my little living room cum kitchen. I had actually only received one reply to the email I sent out last week, so I did find myself wondering if it would be two of us watching DVDs. In the end, all bar one individual turned up and I was glad that most of my friends are quite small! I even had a surprise guest! An former exchange student from Turkey has just accepted a postdoc in my old lab. Since my university email has finally been cut off, I didn't know about her arrival - a very pleasant surprise indeed!
My homemade pizza was as popular as ever - as one friend put it, I'm a one trick pony when it comes to cooking - but its a pretty good trick. However, slightly embarrassingly my first guests arrived and commented on the lovely smell
"its the pizza bases, I'm just baking them off to kill the yeast. They've got garlic in them".
"No, its a more tangy and fruity smell. It smells delicious".
"err that's the citrus burst shake n vac I used when I vaccumed that flat earlier".
All in all, much wine was drunk and lots of food eaten. My music collection was thoroughly dissected and the piss duly taken. I still had 8 guests present after midnight, which is pretty successful. The last guest wobbled off home at 6am, having decided that since he'd missed the last bus home, he may as well continue dinking wine until the first bus home.
I awoke mid-afternoon on top of the bed, trousers half down (I couldn't undo the laces on my shoes so gave up getting undressed half-way through), with a pounding head and blackened tongue and lips mute testimony to the volume of red wine drunk.
I think I'll clean up tomorrow...
FOR YOUR PERUSAL
