Let The Party Begin

I hope you're sitting down. Actually it doesn't really matter, I just wanted to write that. Last Thursday (16 February2006) Jesse's sister Lucy and her friend Danielle rolled in from sunny Wisconsin. This is a shot I lifted from airport surveillance. They work for American Eagle and enjoy wonderful travel benefits, which I don't know if I'm allowed to disclose.

They were scheduled to arrive around 11. Then sent a text message saying they would be 15-20 minutes late. I think they de-planed a little after midnight. Here is the heartwarming reunion. We had to wait for their checked luggage (it was after all a whole 4 day trip) and they just HAD to change before we could go anywhere. Don't worry, they were ready by 1:45 am. And they looked just fabulous. I didn't take a picture because I was too busy falling asleep. Jesse didn't take a picture because he was too busy chewing off his own arm. He was hungry.

Our food options were limited because it was so late. We ended up going to McMullan's, just about across the street from where we live. There we ate fish, fries, and delectable chicken nachos. Jesse and Lucy did some catching up and rekindled their fraternal bond. They even had a deep philosophical discussion and the mating habits of the Emperor Penguin.

And then it was three in the morning. So we went to bed.
