I am in the process of preparing for the Big Night-- getting supplies together, finding the can opener, that sort of thing. But, while the computer is charging I thought I'd best check and see if Blogger is working-- it didn't seem to be earlier.

Hurrah!), caffeine, chocolate (the latter two for *me* not the cats), my phone and lots of hope. ...Here goes!
