By then, we were too tired to make anything from scratch. Kitty had some frozen cookie dough, however, so we were still able to get cookies made. The cookies were pre-shaped and everything - all we had to do was slap them down on a tray and stick 'em in an oven. So we just sat around and talked about Kitty's dog Barky, who spent most of the evening farting. Dogs are great that way.
On the one hand, it was fun to hang out with everyone. I hadn't seen Bandaid and Sandy in months. But on the other hand...meeting so late when everyone's tired doesn't lead to sparkling, witty conversation. In the new year, I think I'm going to have to make a serious effort to get the group of us to hang out more often, because when there's such long gaps between visits it's really hard to maintain the friendships.
At least we remembered to take group pictures this time:
