Joycelyn's housewarming party. Umm... only knew Jamie and Joycelyn, so everyone else was new. I think I was the only Bruin there, until I got Dave and his friend Andy as reinforcements. (edit: actually I wasn't, says Joyce. Michael, Caridad, and Victor, too.)
There was a potluck beforehand, but I arrived a bit too late for that. Stuffed full of coconut chicken, crepes of all kinds, something-yummy-in-a-large-pan (Mexican dish of some sort), and waaaay too many donuts. Plus alcohol, of course. =)
We had live music including a song made up for Joyce, drunken conversations in several languages (ok, maybe just two!), lots of singing, and-- surprisingly-- only a few* rounds of shots. The music selection was quite good, too. Plenty of indie, which was fitting for the bunch of indie music fans there! Odd thing of the night was a neon-pink Post-It note that stained the table. It was being used as a coaster, evidently not a good idea. After freaking out, the biology geeks there removed the stain with a polar solvent**. That was amusing. =þ * = "few" depends on your definition, of course. ** = Windex.
Hmm. Names. Umm. Uhh. (I'll let Joyce fill me in... thanks Joyce!) People present: Ulf, Caridad, Victor, Aileen, Joanna, Sara, John, Joan, Carlos, Veronica, Jamie, Aaron, Michael, Jason, Altara, plus the suspects associated with me, Dave and Andy.
T'was fun, except for the fact that I ended up with a zillion phone calls that night. Very distracting!
