it was wonderful to see ekki! she rocks the house. i can't wait for her to visit me. this particular party was a no-alcohol-but-all-the-sugar-you-could-shove-in-your-face party. ekki was the only person i knew and she did a wonderful job of making me feel welcome, but

Crystal + Strangers - Alcohol (+ sugar) = Shy Bumbling Idiot

So a lot of the time I stared at my lap or tried to make conversation with a dog that was only interested in getting his ass scratched.

I got to meet Markis, who is actually a very nice boy. He gave Ekki a very sweet present for her birthday and scared the crap out of some poor cat.

Roxie didn't show and neither did Thomas....hmmmmmm, where were you guys? Being naughty, I hope. Probably not though, considering Thomas' daddy is under the weather. Have I ever mentioned what a complete Badass Thomas' dad is? He is awesome. And his brother can tell you any fact about Chuck Norris that you would ever need to know. Good people.

Glad you had fun, Crystal. Yes, I remember how much booze helps. I always feel like counting floor tiles before I say hi first, in those situations. But, I figure I'm getting better at it. If it's business, then no problem. Weird.

Dogs are such users. A social situation with strangers but without alcohol? A nightmare!
Well done for surviving.

Guzzling whiskey with retards sounds like a recipe for disaster. Good thing they're all wearing helmets.

i once had a wet sock of a boyfriend called brendan.

I agree-- alcohol does enhance most social situations. It does sound like you had fun...even if some people did not show.

Sugar is my best friend and my arch-nemesis.

Good for Markis scaring the cat, I'm sure it had it coming.
I had to use the FOIL method to solve your algebra problem.
