Happy New Year
Another year already. Both my roommates are still asleep at 2 in the afternoon, so it must have been a good evening.
I decided to abandon waltzing to spend the night with friends, and like all good coop parties, we started out by cleaning - this time it was the layer of drywall dust that coated the living room.
After that, we set out some good food:
... and started a "roaring" fire. This would be the starter block slightly charring the big log we had:
We all wrote our new year's resolutions and "best of" and "worst of" the year on the wall. A lot of things made both lists.
The Codeglias came and showed some movies old and new. They don't have a website made yet, but we need to convince them to make their old movies available. I don't have a picture of the movies, so here they are being cute:
When midnight approached, we all scrambled through the 4th floor window onto the roof...
... to mill around and drink our requisite glass of champagne.
At midnight, the campanile played Auld Lang Syne and we watched the fireworks being set off across the bay in San Francisco. It's hard to take a non-blurry photo while shivering.
