Party of the Day #972

leave a comment »

Kelly (back and center) turns 22 in the middle of July, and by then everyone will have dispersed across the country, so she very wisely held a party for it tonight instead. It was a fantastic celebration, with gorgeous food and delicious music and a bonfire that could have sung me to sleep, and I’m glad Kelly chose to celebrate before the year ended. Here’s a large portion of the party posing in front of the very professional photo booth that Kelly’s friend Alex set up – note the silver umbrella looming in the corner. This photo is a bit less carefully taken, and as a result everyone in it has developed the ability to fire lasers from their eyes.

Rob came to perform for everyone, and Emily added her cello’s depth to a few songs, then Muriel and another friend came on to sing a few covers for Kelly. We were all sitting out on the lawn in the backyard, lit by christmas lights and the bonfire, and it was such a wonderful atmosphere, built by hard work from good people. I wish I could have done more to make the party go well, but it was successful nonetheless. At least I managed to bake some cookies for it.

Kelly has a lot of really amazing friends, and I wish that I’d gotten to know them better. Perhaps the opportunity is not entirely lost.

now let me at the truth which will refresh my broken mind
