Was planning on avoiding a night out, and successfully managed it. House parties are so much cheaper. Oh, and you can control the music, and you are guaranteed of getting clean beers. Excellent!
I was even contemplating just staying in, but after a couple of early evening calls, I'd had dinner and drinks with Bella and Sölvi, then off to a party at Geiri's house. That eventually overflowed, with a few people having been there a bit too long, but none of us wanted to go downtown. So we strolled around the corner to my place, for a change of scene. We had multiple guitar players, we had didgeridoos, and there was even a few bottles of special price vodka that someone had obtained from a sailor recently ashore. Madness ensued.
