it's a wrap!
the party wrapped up about half an hour ago; all i want to do now is take a shower and collapse into bed. :) but i'm happy: the food turned out well, and people enjoyed themselves, and it was good to see everyone, even if i didn't get a chance to talk to many people for long because i spent a lot of time bouncing around picking things up and handing them around. :p
many thanks to people who brought food, and drinks, and to alex's mom who baked us chocolate mousse cake (the leftovers are mine mine mine mine! -evil laughter-). a convivial evening indeed. good times. :)
