spd '04

Tonight's St. Patrick's Day party was just plumb great. We decorated with green balloons, streamers, and banners. We served cupcakes, cake, cookies, and lemonade--all green in nature. We had crafty little souvenirs. (Okay, so they were wooden craft spoons that I scrawled shamrocks and "SPD '04" onto with a green Sharpie.) Oh, and there were really cute and festive paper plates and napkins. We had John Mayer's "St. Patrick's Day" set to repeat on the CD player. Everybody wore green, and we took a picture. We also played a wonderful six rounds of Scattergories. The evening was a success. Holly and I really should have been doing other, more productive things instead of spending hours WalMarting and decorating for the shindig, but it was too much fun. This is why I love college. You don't have to make sure everybody can show up to your gathering a month in advance. You simply send word down the hallway, and people come a-flocking. And who knew St. Patrick's Day could be such a hoot? And it's a full week before the holiday actually occurs...
