Right after my last post, my cell phone rang to tell me that people were a Phatty's. A lot of people because his younger brother Peter had friends over too. With a total of 4 X-Boxes...and there was some 16-player Halo going on. There was also pool, cards, and lots of food.
Most of the younger kids left at 11. The curfew kids left at midnight. The rest of us were out by 12:45.
So yes. Distraction. I smiled and laughed. Was still pretty quiet, but it was okay.
