Party clean-up would be much easier if I didn't get so obsessive about it. Washing dishes: fine. Cleaning all the floors in the house: probably unnecessary, especially at 2 am.
Additional party notes:
Pouring ginger ale over drinks almost always improves them.
There are too many punch recipes and too little time.
I love fancy vintage glassware.
Donald and James do very well with crowds.
I need to figure out a vegetarian curry puff recipe.
I should probably only bake half-batches of chocolate chip cookies.
Surprisingly few people are familiar with Tim Curry's "I Do the Rock."
The nautical room isn't nearly as confusing to people as the enormous Wayne Gretzky poster in the living room.
No one likes mulled cider as much as I think they do.
