Housewarming aftermath



Not nearly as bad as last time, at least (that's what comes of having less than half as many people come!). Still, not an appealing prospect to wake up with the next morning. Or the next afternoon, I should say. I was very good about it, though: I did do nearly all of the cleaning and tidying straight away.

This reminds me of why I throw outdoor parties only now. Doesn't stop people coming inside, but it limits the damage to semi-tolerable status. Except for the idiots, and one will always have to deal with idiots.

One of the reasons I so covet a courtyard... to be able to throw an outdoor party. But I guess the amount of clearing up is going to be the same: same burden on the kitchen, same amount of part-used booze to round up, same number of receptacles waiting to be cleaned... Ugh.

'Idiots', indeed. I am sourly inclined to think that there's something about a party that turns people into idiots. There was so much gob-smacking bad guest behaviour at mine, I was just about ready to hit someone by the end of it.

Er, looks pretty tidy to me. In fact rather like a house before anyone has arrived. Especially that table with all the drinks on.

Ah, Harvster, didn't know that you frequented this blog as well.

Yes, I was disappointed by how punily most people drank. There are some empties in that big black bin bag off to the bottom right, and a lot of the bottles on the table are half empty, but still... it's a pretty piss-poor effort really.

Not enough Oxford men there.

Idiots at parties - like the guy who stood in my dining room last time (where the heat sensitive food was placed) and ate cherries, spitting the stones onto the floor without any attempt at civilization. He's off the list for RibFest 2010.

I drop in from time to time but not as often as I should.
