was a grand success, if I do say so myself (which I do.) No casualties, except a slightly burnt plastic spoon, and no ill effects. A turkey which was one of the better ones I’ve eaten, despite being roasted whole and not in parts. And an excellent group of people.
We cooked all day at my house, then ate, in the company of friends and their dishes, then played three rounds of Uno, of which (again, if I do say so myself) I won the last two. In a row. I would not boast of this except that, for those of you who know my history with games, it is a pretty rare ocurrence.
Cleanup is done. The great reams of leftovers are out of sight. There is time, I hope, to make it to a screening of HP 7.
Outside, it is a moderate gray, with intentions of but no definite signs of rain. Inside, it is extremely pleased with itself.
