Successful housewarming party

We had a housewarming party on Saturday and I must say that it was one of the most successful parties I’ve attended in recent years.  There was drinking, there was dancing, there was snacking, there was late night swimming, and there was not a visit from a police officer to advise us of the city noise ordinances.  It was a great group of people, including smaller subgroups who didn’t know each other, such as a coworker and her boyfriend, and a grad student friend of a friend.

One friend brought us some Mexican prayer candles (as a humorous housewarming present and not actually to bring the loving Grace of Jesus Christ in our new home), another gave me a pool lounger and a doggie life-vest, and a third gave us a gift card to Target that we used last night towards buying a set of tools and an issue of Martha Stewart Living featuring 75 easy decorating ideas.  These gifts were on top of the bottles of wine, six-packs of high-quality beer, and cookies and snacks others brought to share.  The house is warmed.

My laptop still can’t talk to the network connection which is why these posts have been sparse.  That’s what comes from using a pre-9/11 computer in a post-9/11 world — it’s a whole new paradigm now.  Man, I can’t get enough of that joke.  Seriously, though, I probably need to get a new wireless card or a whole new computer one of these days, and in the meantime I’ll keep borrowing his laptop occasionally.

    your youngest brother in DC or older brother in AZ can probably diagnose your computer network connectivity problem over the phone — although PCMIA wireless cards can be purchased new at Fry’s for less than $50 — so you should be back in operation at your new house very, very soon.
