So I went to dear friends' house (the home of ajpursell and princess_allura (who are named alphabetically rather than in order of importance)), for the birthday party. While my birthday's still a ways off, they have 4 friends who are born in September. It's perfectly reasonable to throw one party for all four of us. My new housemate (as of a couple months back) is one of the four whose birthday it was, so I dragged he and his boyfriend to the party.
It was a good party, though I was kind of going 'I shouldn't drink TOO much, I have to drive home'. Pleasant to be surprised with rani23 and battlehampster and also battlehampster's beau! Pleasant to see everyone who was there! A very lovely party.
Then I drove housemate and his boyfriend to boyfriend's house, and came home to watch movies & drink vodka. I wound up watching After Hours and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, since they're both old favorites and if it's my birthday party, I get to put on what I would like. I'm currently wallowing through the DVD extras on the '08 DVD cut of Munchausen, since I never bothered before and am in wallow-in-old-favorites mode. It's interesting listening to how the original script would've played out.
Also, Answer the Phone, Priiiick.
