    I bought tickets this morning for a Mardi Gras party, here at the complex next month. It sounds like fun: professional DJ, dancing, games, beads, and food. They're doing jambalaya, gumbo, and who knows what else. Like all events here, it'll be BYOB.

    The tickets are just $3, and all proceeds go to help pay for bringing in live music events, periodically. The last two of those were quite good, IMHO.

    Sounds like a good time to me....

    We also got tickets for the Valentine's Day sock hop. It'll be our 22nd wedding anniversary, that day. They're planning on a (resident, amatuer) DJ, dancing, and a funky socks contest.

    We've already gotten our socks. Mine are covered with pictures of fried eggs, and hers with pictures of bacon.

    No food provided at this one, but everyone brings snacks to share. BYOB, as always....

    After cribbage today, a friend is coming over to cut my hair for me. His dad was a barber, and taught him to cut hair as a kid. He worked in his father's shop through high school, and cut hair while he was in the Navy. He has been barbering as a side gig ever since.

    He has been cutting hair here for 12 years, now. Usually guys go to his apartment, but they have house guests right now. These apartments are tiny, so he has no room there while guests are there.

    So, he'll come here. Not bad, for a $10 haircut....

    In one of those "isn't it weird how you never talk about something and then it comes up several times in just a day or two?" moments...there was a light dusting of graupel on the ground this morning. I kind of did a double take - but the stuff was definitely soft little balls, not flakes.

    We are predicted to get several days of snow starting this afternoon. My family is SO EXCITED. I think they're going to jinx it.

    Except for the food that sounds like hell on earth to me.

    You do such a good job with the socializing and having fun! That kind of stuff would give me panic attacks - I wish I could enjoy it more.

    When it's a novelty it's fun I guess? A little goes a long way here.
