As usual, it was a strange mix of people. People I've worked with, people I've worked for, coaster geek friends, Stephanie's school friends, volleyball kids and their parents, my newlywed cousin and wife... good times.
This year we drained the mai tai, all 12 litres of it. The Hawaiian-style burgers were a hit, and we had plenty of vegan fare as well. Yet again the neighbors were out of town, so we didn't get a chance to piss them off.
The party made me wonder why it's so hard to keep in touch with people. Why does it take so much effort and energy? Some of these people I barely see three or four times a year, and it sucks, especially since I have very little connection (or interest) to my family. I've gotta work on that.
Fabulous afterglow... can't wait for a certain someone's 30th birthday next January...
