Game was effectively sabotaged by my lack of preparation for said game and an impromptu but fun birthday celebration (there was even cake).
Most the gamers (er, the guys really) were gone by midnight, pleading ill health, sickness, and disgust.
Much fun was had by all, and hopefully the pictures won't show up on MySpace™ too quickly. I'm not in most of them, whew.
Luckily, the party has now fled in entirety, and was thoughtful enough to take the cake with them, lest the Secret Dessert Burial Ground claim another victim.
