|Epic Parties and Broken Windows
||[Sep. 24th, 2006|04:51 pm]
Last night I celebrated my 30th birthday one month late with a party in the flat. I cleared out as much space as possible (bikes & keyboards in the bedroom) and set up the flat for a two-room, dancing extravaganza. Mariana and I filled the guest bathroom tub with ice and beer. On the music front, no guilty pleasure was denied: Bon Jovi, Kylie, Madonna, Brittney. And all was good...|
...until about 11pm, when some punks on the street lobbed 3 rocks at the windows. One came sailing in through an open window and was lucky not to hit anyone. The second shattered a pane of glass. And the third broke a hole in another pane. The punks ran, the police were called, a report was made, etc., etc. The police are unlikely to be able to do anything about it so the report is really just for insurance purposes. Oh well.
After that, we closed the windows, lowered the blinds and the party went on until 3:30am. I'm currently staring at a huge mess of bottles and a very dirty floor. But it was well worth the trouble. Maybe I should do this "Birthday Party" thing more often.
