happy new year!

NYE was awesome. allandaros is hosting an epic house party/reunion for a bunch of his friends from a summer camp he used to go to, and kashmir_ki_kali and I stopped by the New Year's Eve festivities. There two epic rounds of Apples to Apples, two even more epic rounds of Taboo, an overcomplicated Battlestar Galactica-based tabletop RPG, a card-based game I only vaguely understood the purpose of, and discussion until 7 this morning. Then I laid down on the loveseat in the library and watched the sun come up. It was lovely.

(There were also shenanigans when we reached 11p and suddenly realized we had nothing to toast the new year. But, Google maps provided a liquor store that was open until midnight, and two of the guys ran out to grab wine, kosher wine, and non-alcoholic bubbly. And then they had to find a corkscrew. It was pretty funny.)

I love being able to hang out with geeky people, I really do. Many of the folks I already knew (from high school, or people I'd already met at other events), but I also got to meet a bunch of other really cool people that I hope to be able to keep in touch with. Despite the whole meds debacle (ongoing)--which is, of course, affecting my mood--I still felt more like me than I had in a while.

In other good news, I was able to deliver to alladaros his Friendship Stimulus Gift, so I can now share pictures of it:







I'm particularly pleased with the back, because I'm a freak I'd never finished a pattern with that technique before. I'm really, really pleased with the way it turned out.

So, that's all of my Friendship Stimulus Gifts, and since I did, in fact, give it to him on 31 December, that means I even managed to complete them all on time. Woot!

Will be memeing it up tomorrow, in between washing floors and probably even more baking. Now I'm going to have some more candied ginger to deal with the acid reflux the steroid gave me, since I can't take any more Pepcid and we don't have any Tums. FML, but at least I'm smiling.

The next morning, a couple of folks were expressing an interest in going out for sushi, and I suggested a restaurant near my house...named Moby Dick. And they have shark on the menu.

Hi!
Hey, it's Ken! Thought I would friend you. I don't write too many entries myself, but consider this my attempt to keep in touch! You were a fantastic Taboo partner and it was cool to finally put a face to an LJ username. (:

Re: Hi!
That's fine. :) I'll warn you, I'm active in the slashier side of fandom, so, as I've been known to say, "there's porn in them thar hills". But I ramble about all kinds of other stuff, too. :D

Re: Hi!
Fair warning accepted! I'm not much into fic, and some of the fandoms you've mentioned in your most recent post are not things I know very well, but if it catches my eye/I have some downtime, I may read some here and there.

Also, you commented a minute after I did, says LJ. Impressive!
