This New Years I learner something about myself, apparently I prepare for parties the way some people prepare for a ten-year seige. I attended a New Years house party for about five people at a friend's house. My roommate and I brought about 6 bags of food and liquor as well as about 5 other bags with bedding, games and such. Naturally, such overkill was entirely unnecessary, but had some terrible disaster befallen us, we probably would have enough provisions to last a least a month. I don't know if this trait was brought on by belonging to the Girl Guides for a few years in my youth, the fact that I come from a family of 8 or just that my mind conflates house parties with seige warfare….
