I had a house warming party last night. It is the first party I've hosted. Shava (who is crashing in my guest room) helped significantly with setup and with shoppin; that was greatly appreciated. Around 20 people came. It was an interesting mix of some of my older friends, current students and the neighbors from across the hall who stopped in. I hope those who were able to make it had as much fun as I did. There's a great feeling associated with bringing people together and facilitating new connections. It was also nice to show off the new place. I look forward to future entertainment.
