I see no one else (on my friends list, anyway) has posted about kingfox's birthday party yet. We left early, because we're old, not because we weren't having a good time. I had some gin, the nyotaimori was far less risque than I was led to believe it would be, runstaverun and kikibird were gracious hosts, and I met all the people for whom kingfox is the central nexus of existence. I realized he was the only one who knew everyone there. windexcowboy was mean before he started drinking gin, but that was mainly because he was tired because he insisted on working at 5am Saturday morning.
So, happy quarter of a century, kingfox, and here's to at least 2 or 3 more.
