Okay, this is a little bit late in the night / morning, but that's only because I didn't get home until an hour ago. I went to a party at a friend's house, and it was... wonderful. Great food, great conversation, and great people. Though it wasn't in the original plan, mom came to the party too, and, as usual, was an awesome asset to the affair. Since we were supposed to each bring a dessert, I baked a two-layer strawberry layer cake and covered it with white frosting, shredded coconut, and a marzipan frozen lake ringed by snow-people. Yes folks, I am a creative and talented cook -- something which keeps surprising my friends.

Have a safe and happy new year. *hugs*
