    Funny thing about feeding alot of people. There is still leftovers. I have half a bowl of salad, 1/3 of the cake, 4 slices of meat, and some potatoes left. I also went through three times as many drinks.

    The guests also brought me lovely hostess presents so I am now the proud owner of a cherry pie (I'm allergic to cherries so this isn't a diet buster), half a bottle of wine (I rarely drink so I opened it immediately and shared), a Tool CD (YAY!), and a lovely bouquet of flowers (which I LOVE).

    One of my guests is a serious Maynard James Keenan fan. He is both an amazing singer/songwriter (Tool, A Perfect Circle, Puscifer) and winemaker! Quite the eclectic pool of talents.
