Should auld acquaintance be forgot?

"5… 4… 3… 2… 1…"

As the clock struck midnight, a cork popped through the air as people cheered and tooted on noisemakers. I'm sure the people living underneath iangurudata's flat were absolutely thrilled by the noise on a Saturday night. I suppose it is a bit odd to be screaming "Happy New Year" in the middle of April.

I spent most of the night travelling back and forth from the kitchen to the living room. I chatted with lots of people whom I really don't know, but seemed awfully geekier than me. This, they all assured me, was because they went to Dawson Sci-Fi. Nevertheless, we found things to talk about, like the snake that someone was wearing around her neck.

A blackjack table had been carted into the living room, so people started gathering around that. Sadly, very few people knew how to play, so that didn't improve their chances at all. Then someone fell down in the middle of the hallway, and the party wound down soon after that. I have vague memories of sitting beside a girl puffing on a hookah and a boy counting his gambling money. I think that only the dealer won that night.

By the time the party finished, I found myself far from home. Ian graciously offered a day-bed and I collapsed upon that. Some other people slept on the sofa-bed, but they neglected to transform it into something comfortable. Next I knew, it was morning, and I was being greeted by the sun in my eyes. And cats.

It was a good party.

Luckily, the next New Year's party is only eight months away!
