Further to my last post, we had the party, and I’m at the office now, waiting for my deployment to start. (Actually, I shouldn’t say “had”. At the time that I wrote this, it was probably still going on without me.)

So here’s the thing: the party wasn’t really our party. It was for a friend of ours, who goes to our church. She wanted to have a birthday party, but didn’t have a good space, so we volunteered our place. The party was scheduled to start at 7:00, but she and her sister showed up at 4:30 to set up. And boy, did they set up! I mean, Andrea and I have had people over before, but I now realize that we’ve never had a party. This was a party. Our furniture was rearranged to create a dance floor, there was enough food prepared to feed a hungry army—a hungry army with good taste—and decorations galore were put up everywhere. And, aside from a minor incident involving a fondue set and some fire, it was going very smoothly, when I left.

The other thing I did today was try the Coke BlaK which had been given me. And, although I hadn’t really been expecting much, I quite liked it. If you’ve ever had chocolate-covered coffee beans, and liked them, then you’d probably like Coke BlaK. I found it much more coffee-flavoured than Coke-flavoured.

Youth Group on Friday was as bad as I’d been expecting. But we made plans for next Friday, so hopefully I’ll be able to pull that off, without too much kerfuffle.

And that’s about it, for now. I’m very tired, so I’m hoping that the deployment will go smoothly. I don’t have the brainpower right now to try and troubleshoot anything that comes up.

Oh, and one more thing: I really should have brought more snacks with me, when I came to work. I feel like eating right now…
