Tara's birthday at Curry House. Rainstorms continued to pound Los Angeles for the 4th day in a row, so a few people (e.g. Bej) didn't make it out due to flooded streets and nasty freeway conditions.
Sophia, Justin, Carley, and I were already in the area going rock climbing at UCLA, so we had two reasons to head out to West LA despite the nasty weather. ;-)
Everyone arrived at almost the exact same time-- Tara, Camille & Francis, Sophia & Justin, and I were there at about the same time, while the second group and third group (Mike, Chris, Heather, then Carley and Grace) arrived a bit later. It was rather odd to actually have people run on time!
Everything went quite smoothly afterwards. aka, loud and talkative all around. Typical for us. =P About the only thing that was mildly unsafe was myself ending up sitting between Chris and Heather. I got in the way of lots of finger pointing, which was definitely a safety hazard. The multitude of people snapping away with camera phones in the middle of the table was kind of amusing, too!
For those with a morbid curiosity about gifts, they were from Burt's Bees, Pacsun, Victoria's Secret, and a few others. I think we had to worry about Chris stealing the Burt's Bees, but other than that it was pretty safe...
