So much for getting started on the cooking last night. The social function I attended as a part of work ("other duties as assigned?") lasted much longer than I assumed it would. It was actually still going on when I left, but I had tolerated as much as I could tolerate. The more formal aspect was over and the dancing/social hour was beginning and the music as this point became painful. I took the horrid selection of dance songs as my cue to leave. And by the time I got home I had a headache (probably from the music), so I headed off to bed not long after walking through the apartment door. So that was my Saturday night: dinner with polilticians and local government leaders.
Once I finish the morning coffee, I'll make a run to the grocery store to pick up the essentials so I can get going on the cheesecakes for tonight's dinner party.
