Okay, I admit it. I was being overly pessimistic about the STAR party at our house. It actually turned out to be all right. Quite a few folks showed up and I only burned four of the hamburgers and lost one to the evil grill (it fell between the grill slats). I successfully cooked all of the hot dogs with nary a one lost. Most of the food was eaten but we did get left with a bunch of chips and a bottle of Mountain Dew. I'll have to find some Mountain Dew lover to give that to since no one in our household drinks the stuff.

Anyway, plenty of good food was eaten, a few folks watched DVDs and more folks hung out in our computer/musical instrument/game cube/toy room (no, not *those* kinds of toys) and filked. I've never hung out in the filk rooms at SF cons but I always thought it was a nice way to pass the time. We've got quite a few club members who enjoy singing and playing musical instruments so our house was perfect for that activity since Mike's got five guitars, one crappy electric base, an electronic piano, a drum set, a concertina and a ukele. I've got a couple of harmonicas but I'm nowhere near proficient enough to play them in front of others.

It was a nice way to christen the new house and I'm sure we'll do it again. STAR people are always mellow and never leave a big mess behind. What more could you ask from your guests?
