The Results Are In

Apparently, our Oscar Party was a success. For several years now, Eric and I have had a party for the Academy Awards. It started rather small and grew to an astounding 70-ish people a couple of years ago. Luckily the weather held out and we were able to expand into the back yard with a screen and fire pit. (Our house is very small). Last year, the award show fell on the same weekend as our 10th anniversary. Since we eloped back in '95 and never had a reception, we decided to combine the two events and really did it up for about 100 people at a local restaurant.

Back to the house this year and a much smaller crowd, which was fine with me. We ended up with about 25 guests total, I believe. I'm exhausted as I slept very little in order to get the house ready. I didn't see much of the show (I heard it was kind of boring anyway) and my plans to catch on Tivo didn't work as the machine was turned off...see what happens when you clean. Grrr! I did eat and drink too much, but that is indeed part of the fun.

Some reviews I received via email:
  • "Thanks for hosting the Oscar Party again this year. [We] had a great time."
  • "Thanks for the good time at your annual party. My friend and I had a good time."
  • "I'm SO GLAD I was able to make it after all! Some traditions simply must not die!! Thanks for another lovely, yummy evening!!!!!!!!!!!"

Our last guest left at 4am, but that was mostly because we decided to rewatch Part 1 of the season finale of Battlestar Galactica with him. I'm looking forward to and am nervous about Part 2 this Friday. It's supposed to be a total mind-frack.
