Birthday Party

Last night T and I hosted a party to celebrate my birthday. We had invited about 13 people, which we knew would be a challenge considering the size of our one-bedroom apartment. We decided to do some furniture rearranging, to accommodate the party. We moved the dining room table into the bedroom and set up the drinks there. The meant people wouldn't have to crowd our small kitchen, and opened up another room for socializing, with the bed as a big couch.

T made some delicious appetizers (including a baked brie with maple syrup). With Vanessa's help, they set up streamers and a collage of nice and embarrassing photos from my youth (what was I thinking with the hair I had in high school?)

People drank (I got quite drunk), ate, belly danced, and at one point a neighbour came up to complain. The party was a success. Thanks to everyone for showing up and helping me celebrate, and I'll be posting (tasteful) photos soon.

UPDATE: photos are here.

What kind of dance are those people doing? Why do you look like Braveheart? Who is that girl in the burgandy top in the blue chair? And why don't you stop kidding everyone and grow back your mop and start sporting your army coat again?

They were belly dancing. T busted out the face paint. Her name is Kat. I think you were the only one who liked my high school hair.

Celebrating our femaleness. Chris was becoming aquainted with my history, Mel Gibson style. Her name is still Kat; sorry Ian, she's engaged. If he grows his hair (head or facial) I'm leaving, and I don't like the sound of that army coat.

My vote is for Chris to grow back the moustache that he (however temporarily) had in Japan. He looked smashing!
