Party ups and downs

Another party in the books. The food was fantastic, and a real hit, as was the giant mai tai (not hard to please with that). It was a fairly small group, but I'm mostly OK with that.

I expected more people, and I won't lie when I say I'm hurt that some people said they were coming, and then didn't. I take it very personally. It's just not cool to say that you're in, and then blow it off.

But on the flip side, it was fun to cook, and having Diana there to supervise cutting stuff was a big deal. I'm not a gourmet kind of guy, but she was very supportive in my culinary endeavors. I'm also now aware that she has a cheese fetish, and I think if we're going to date long term, I better start getting more cheese in the fridge. Yet another food subject I don't know much about!

Thank God that the weather was nice too. The day started out ridiculously humid, but it really cooled off and dried out by late afternoon.

Good times, good food, good drinking, and most importantly, good friends.

oh god. Cheese.... love that shit. There's a sandwich here on the island called the triple crown, it has muenster. My FAV.... my mom and I saw that cheese on someone else's sandwich, and it was like two guys checking out a hot girl.... "Did you see the CHEESE on that sandwich??"

"MMM.... yes. Muenster. I could tell from a mile away."

Looks like you may have to make a jaunt to Cheese Haven (if it still exists). Man, I used to love stopping by that place and would always come out with several varieties.

Glad to hear the party was a success. I had no idea cheese could be such a show stopper, though.

And is anyone else a little concerned about how much we all talk about food?

...Nah...we talk about dieting more. :)
