Bang, Bang, Bang: A Non-Alcoholic Hangover And Thanks For Coming To My Silly Party

They're stripping the entire exterior of the condo I live in. Last week they were working on nearby units but not mine; today they actually began hammering like Angry Gods right on the outside of my bedroom walls.

It was the wrong night to stay up 'till 4am. Though one can say that of most nights.

It's now lunch time. They stopped... for now. The angry hammers still echo in my eardrums though. And they'll be back at it within ten minutes.

Not really related, but I want to thank everyone who came out to the party on Saturday night, and tell those who couldn't come they were missed. It was wonderful to meet so many people, and I have to say, apart from the simple pleasantness of meeting nice people, I really had a non-egotistical, sort of at-peace-with-the-universe glow from so many people just being so damned charitable and friendly to me. I know that I didn't get to spend nearly enough time with everyone as I would have liked; I was trying to be a Proper Host and say a brief hello to everyone.

I really don't say this often enough, but I do appreciate your caring enough to read this site, and, even more than that, caring enough to send well-wishes whenever you suspect (or I whine) that my life is going badly, or at least not as fabulously as I'd always hoped it would. That kind of psychic support is something that unfortunately too few people have, and as one of the few luck enough to have that kind of utterly undeserved kindness of strangers, I do appreciate it, and realize what a strange and nice thing it is.
