I helped Gina and Krista throw a surprise birthday party for Kat, which was great, I think. Unfortunately, once I grilled and ate I was ready to fall asleep, and I spent most of the rest of the party half asleep or asleep. Half drunk or drunk would be bad enough, but half asleep or asleep is somehow more rude, I think. And if anyone thought I was being rude, I really didn't mean it -- it was nothing anyone else did or said. The body was shutting down, despite my efforts. I know Andy thought it was his conversation, but no, it really was just me. Thanks to everyone for coming, and for bringing fine things to share to eat and drink, and for surprising Kat -- I think she really was surprised!
Next time we have people over, I'll try not to do that. I think I'll have a pot of coffee ready just to help me fight it, if I find myself slipping away.
