A good party.

A hundred-odd guests, 30 of them born since our wedding, the rest over twenty-one.

Fifteen family, four neighbours, four work-mates, four adults dancing, four men in bright colours, two women wearing their wedding finery, twenty-seven Playcentre people, thirty-six people I've roleplayed with (including five of the seven in my 1982 AD&D group), seventeen bloggers (adrexia, argentbear, china-shop, eloieli, flatlander, fraser-by-proxy, half-pie, house-monkey, me, no right turn, not usually about penguins, repton-infinity, rincewindTVD, seven is a journey, stephanie pegg, and xenogram), twenty-four people who were at the wedding ten years ago, thirty-three old friends, a dozen new friends, six people I hadn't met before, one chandelier, one ham, and one cat.

Well, I had a good time.
Thank you for coming.

D&D. I played it once. In 1981, third form; our geriatric but much loved art teacher used to give us a free period so long as we all stayed in the classroom and didn't disturb him (a Playboy would usually keep him quiet - the art of photography, you know).

I was so crap at it the other players killed my character and carried on their quest without me. It just wasn't right, the bastards.

Aaaaaah, that feels better off my chest. <sob>.

You poor thing ... if ever you want to try a second hit you know where to come, I can set you up with the quality stuff; kind adults with lively imaginations who already get your jokes.

Ah, AD&D saved my life. I played hardcore from 1983-1986, and then picked it up again a few years back for a irregular game in Boise with friends. Many good times as DM back in the day (I was such a geek I carried about my dad's old leather breifcase with "AD&D" on the side!
