Surprise birthday party

  • 26th Nov, 2005 at 12:06 PM

I lost my bus pass yesterday. Good thing it's almost the end of the month.

That's the bad news. The good news is that I showed up to helf's birthday party. Strangely enough, I don't know Harold, so it was quite odd showing up to his party and saying "hello" to people in the hopes that one of them was him.

You see, I received an invitation in my inbox a couple of days ago and I thought that it was quite odd to be this surprise invitation. But then I abandoned care and resolved to go, because it isn't any day that one gets invited to a birthday party. And if it's someone's birthday, then one ought to celebrate it.

So I showed up with a store-bought tiramisù and buzzed upstairs. Inside, there were already some people milling about and talking to each other in German. Marc-Hubert, Eugene, Stephanie, and Alexandre (who can't actually speak German.) Harold was in the kitchen tending to a frying pan, so I set down my cake and hung up my coat.

We had a very nice meal and people started arriving. Karine and Pierre showed up, followed by Tony and Emily and Athena. Oh, there was also another person who showed up, but I cannot spell her name. I have since discovered that it is Devjani.

I was quite impressed by Harald's vast collection of classical records. Plus he has a rather nice shelf of cookery books, including A russian jew cooks in Peru, which was pretty fun to flip through. It was hand-written with hand-drawn illustrations.

Eventually, I got tired out from all this conversing and Athena had to leave early so as to arrive in time for work. She graciously offered me a lift home so I got into her cute little car and we chatted as we got lost around the city. Eventually, she dropped me off close to home and I thanked her kindly. And wished her the best of luck.

I lost my Metropass too. Except I was far more unluckier since I lost mine around the 15th. :(

That's kind of odd - I've been meaning to get you and Harald together for some time, but I can't remember if I actually gave him your address and told him to invite you to his next dinner, or what

I'm sorry that you didn't come. We all had a marvellous time.

Yeah, I expected that, but I've had that Friday scheduled for American Thanksgiving Celebrations for months...
